Resumed Offshore Oil & Gas Leasing Will Support American Offshore Wind
"Our country is in dire need of a cohesive national energy policy. The opportunity is before us to produce reliable, affordable, lower carbon, and secure domestic energy. We can only get there through an all-of-the-above approach, which must include the resumption of domestic offshore oil and gas leasing. On a positive note, the Administration continues to promote investment in the offshore wind sector, and the full supply chain of the offshore energy industry is well-positioned for the build-out of the U.S. wind sector. We look forward to advancing projects in the Gulf of Mexico and Southeast."Companies along the Gulf Coast are innovating durable climate and emissions solutions across the wide spectrum of energy sectors. Resuming Gulf of Mexico oil and gas leasing will enable continued innovation, including the build-out of American offshore wind, and will reduce the need to secure our energy from foreign, higher emitting sources."
