NOIA Supports Royalty Policy Committee Recommendations on Offshore Energy Development

Washington, D.C. – NOIA Vice President of Communications and Industry Affairs Nicolette Nye issued the following statement regarding recommendations made today by the Royalty Policy Committee:

“NOIA supports the Royalty Policy Committee’s recommendations which promote offshore energy development in American waters through a more consistent offshore wind leasing program and through expansion of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to include U.S. territories.
