NOIA President Randall Luthi appeared on Monday's “Fuel for Thought” column of Platts’ Oilgram News. Written by Platts’ chief editor Gary Gentile, the article focuses on the role of Congressional caucuses, such as the Atlantic Offshore Energy Caucus, and how they impact energy issues. Following is an excerpt from the article:
Randall Luthi, the president of the National Ocean Industries Association, has presented to several such groups, including the Atlantic Offshore Energy Caucus. The group was formed last

While the members who formed the caucus are already sold on the idea of energy development, Luthi said talking to them can help spread accurate information to other legislators.
“It’s impossible to reach every member of the hill on every issue,” Luthi said. “Our job is to educate members of congress about our issues, to share with them the information we know. You
want to make sure the information is consistent. Then you also have given them information to go talk to their colleagues about.”
