10 18, 2023 by by LMOGA

Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association (LMOGA) President Tommy Faucheux provided testimony this morning, before the Committee on Natural Resources, Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources during an oversight hearing titled “Examining the Biden Administration’s Unprecedented Obstruction of the BOEM Offshore Leasing Program.”  

“For decades, the Gulf of Mexico has produced some of the most energy-dense and lowest carbon mineral resources in the world,” said Tommy Faucheux. “While the energy industry is rapidly evolving into a lower carbon future, reliance on fossil fuels will continue for the foreseeable future. Supporting a regulatory certainty and a predictable robust offshore leasing program in the GOM will ensure the world’s ever-growing demand is met with a reliable, more sustainable source of energy.”
