Facilitating Industry Relationships

NOIA represents all facets of the domestic offshore
energy and related industries and is dedicated to the
safe development of offshore energy for the continued
growth and security of the United States.

NOIA hosts the two largest annual gatherings of senior
executives in the offshore energy industry. Members
meet in the spring and fall to discuss important
offshore energy issues and hear not only from those
organizations that directly work within the industry but
those outside who affect the industry.

NOIA also engages well-known policy makers and
pundits to speak at its meetings.

While the meetings are purpose-
driven, they also provide an
opportunity for members to
network with fellow senior level
executives from the broad
spectrum of the offshore energy
