NOIA Applauds Research on Strengthening Shallow Water Production

Washington, D.C. – National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) President Erik G. Milito issued the following statement after the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) released a report on energy production in the Shallow Water Gulf of Mexico:

“NOIA applauds the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) for researching and exploring options for promoting energy production in the U.S offshore. The Federal government should be an advocate for American-produced energy, as the far-too-common alternative is the outsourcing of energy production to foreign governments that do not share American values.  Offshore oil and gas production will remain a global growth area for decades to come, and we should embrace policies that ensure U.S. offshore production remains a vital source of the energy that builds our modern lives.”
