“Louisiana has a pivotal role to play in the global energy landscape, and it was an honor to be able to gather in person with our member companies as we look to the future of our industry,” said LMOGA President Tommy Faucheux. “Our industry is committed to meeting the world’s ever-increasing need for low-cost, reliable, and clean energy, all while continuing to support a robust economy for the people of Louisiana, and this year’s meeting was a great opportunity to highlight our industry’s progress.”

“This meeting showed just how pivotal a role that our industry plays here in Louisiana and nationwide, said LOGA President Mike Moncla. “I’m optimistic and encouraged about the future of our industry and the impact that we have on our state’s economy.”

The meeting program featured panel discussions on carbon capture technology and industry’s role in the energy transition. Other meeting highlights included a panel on the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion for the future of the workforce. Speaker highlights included Attorney General Jeff Landry, Mayor of Lake Charles Nic Hunter, Senate President Page Cortez and Speaker of the House Clay Schexnayder.

LMOGA and LOGA each held meetings of the board of directors during the meeting as well. During the LMOGA Board Meeting, the trade association elected new board leadership, Selby Bush Lilley, BHP as LMOGA Chair and Joel Noyes, Hess Corporation, as LMOGA Vice Chair.
