Coden, Alabama (CNN) – More details are emerging about President Obama's planned address to the nation Tuesday on the Gulf oil crisis.
A senior administration official says Obama will begin his remarks with the latest from the "two days spent in the Gulf region and what we've done to respond to the worst environmental disaster in our nation's history."
The official then laid out a series of points the President will make in the speech, which is expected to run 15 minutes:

1. Reorganization at the Department of Interior in what was once MMS and mission of the Oil Commission to ensure a regulatory structure for safe energy exploration.
2. Discuss our containment strategy for capturing as much of or all the oil leaking in the Gulf
3. The BP claims process and what we're doing to make it fast, efficient and transparent and to insure its independence from BP.
4. The beginning of a process to restore the Gulf to a place better than it was before the Deepwater Horizon exploded.
5. Talk about what we must do to decrease our dependence on oil and other fossil fuels.
The Prime time Presidential address is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET, and will take place just hours before Obama meets with BP executives for the first time since the oil crisis began.
