NOIA Welcomes Oil and Gas Production Safety System Improvements

Washington, D.C. – NOIA President Randall Luthi issued this statement following the release of the revised Oil and Gas Production Safety System regulations:

“NOIA welcomes the common-sense approach by the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) in improving the Oil and Gas Production Safety System regulations. The revisions develop a rule that reduces unnecessary burdens placed on industry, while still maintaining world-class safety and environmental protections. We have a rule that is not a safety rollback, but instead incorporates modern technological advances.”


The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) is the only national trade association representing all segments of the offshore industry with an interest in the exploration and production of both traditional and renewable energy resources on the nation’s outer continental shelf.  NOIA’s mission is to secure reliable access and a fair regulatory and economic environment for the companies that develop the nation’s valuable offshore energy resources in an environmentally responsible manner. The NOIA membership comprises nearly 250 companies engaged in business activities ranging from producing to drilling, engineering to marine and air transport, offshore construction to equipment manufacture and supply, telecommunications to finance and insurance, and renewable energy.
