Abstract
    Marine resource use conflicts arising from development of seabed hydrocarbons and minerals off the West Coast of the United States are described and analyzed from a legal perspective. Techniques for avoiding or reducing conflicts include: multiple-use ocean planning to identify potential conflicts; separating exploration and development rights to remove legal impediments to conflict avoidance; using activity schedules, corridors, and buffer zones to avoid conflicts; coordinating federal and state planning and permit processes to reduce conflicts; and providing compensation for unavoidable conflicts.
