The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA), founded in 1972 with 33 members, represents all facets of the domestic offshore energy and related industries. Today, NOIA member companies are dedicated to the safe development of offshore energy for the continued growth and security of the United States. Our membership also includes companies involved in or branching out to pursue offshore renewable and alternative energy opportunities. NOIA members are engaged in many business activities, in addition to those listed below, including environmental safeguards, equipment supply, gas transmission, navigation, research and technology, shipping and shipyards.
NOIA was founded to pursue three basic purposes:
- To promote the common business interests of the members of the offshore and ocean-oriented industries.
- To support legislation and other governmental action that is fair to the offshore and ocean-oriented industries and to counsel against such action when it is not fair.
- To expand the role of the free enterprise system in the development of the ocean's resources.
