Please join us in welcoming new member company, Robertson Energy, to LMOGA. We are thrilled to have this great company as part of our strong and growing membership.
Founded in early 2015 and headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana, Robertson Energy, LLC, is a privately held oil and gas company focused on the Gulf Coast regions of Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi. The company leverages its unique blend of technical, operational, and financial expertise to acquire, develop, and exploit conventional oil and gas properties in the Gulf Coast Basin. Their geotechnical team has a long history of success in their target area and is continuously adding to their proprietary drilling prospect inventory.
Many of us will travel along LA Highway 1 in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, this summer for a relaxing weekend on Grand Isle with family and friends or a world-class saltwater fishing trip in Fourchon. Did you know that this two-lane state highway traversing quiet bayou communities like Golden Meadow and Leeville is also America's access to oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico?
The inaugural Southern Energy Conference will take place September 17th and 18th, 2019, in Lafayette at the DoubleTree by Hilton, presented jointly by the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association and the Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association.
The two-day event will provide attendees with:
• first-hand access to Louisiana’s gubernatorial candidates in a Gubernatorial Forum
• critical updates on the oil and gas industry
• CLE credits for professionals in multiple fields
Candidates Eddie Rispone and Congressman Ralph Abraham have both confirmed their attendance and Governor John Bel Edwards has been invited. The Gubernatorial Forum will take place in the evening on Tuesday, September 17th.
BATON ROUGE, LA (May 22, 2019) —The Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association (LMOGA) issued the following statement on Louisiana’s critical infrastructure protection law.
“Pipelines and other oil and natural gas infrastructure deliver the clean, affordable and reliable energy Louisiana’s working families depend on every day. The intent of the critical infrastructure bill signed into law last year is to protect the safety of Louisiana's people, environment and infrastructure. After careful consideration and debate last session, the final bill enacted was a targeted measure that will not affect an individual’s right to lawfully assemble, fish, hunt, or exercise any right of ownership within the limits and conditions established by law. It is straightforward in its scope and application and does not infringe on an individual's constitutional rights,” said Tyler Gray, LMOGA President and General Counsel.
BATON ROUGE, LA (May 2, 2019) --- The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) finalized the Well Control Rule (WCR) under the Obama Administration in 2016. The Trump Administration’s regulatory reform initiative included the re-proposal of the Well Control Rule (WCR) in 2018. This week the WCR is expected to be released as a final rule.
“The oil and gas industry has a long history of safely producing American energy in the Gulf of Mexico and LMOGA’s members support a continued robust offshore industry that balances safe offshore operations with environmental protection,” said LMOGA President and General Counsel, Tyler Gray.
“The 2016 Well Control Rule was significantly flawed with a one-size-fits-all approach that did not recognize the variability of operations and engineering specific to each well. LMOGA greatly appreciates BSEE’s thorough review of the WCR and the robust stakeholder engagement to ensure input from over 300 technical experts. Safety in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) is of utmost importance to LMOGA and our members. We look forward to reviewing the final Well Control Rule as we aim to restore certainty and predictability to the offshore permitting and regulatory regimes.”
