LMOGA’s Faucheux emphasizes need for robust offshore leasing program at oversight hearing

Tommy Faucheux

Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association (LMOGA) President Tommy Faucheux provided testimony in Washington D.C. last week during an oversight hearing entitled “Examining the Biden Administration’s Unprecedented Obstruction of the BOEM Offshore Leasing Program.” 

Speaking before the Committee on Natural Resources, Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources, Faucheux lobbied for the uninterrupted continuation of the offshore lease program. “For decades, the Gulf of Mexico has produced some of the most energy-dense and lowest carbon mineral resources in the world,” Faucheux says. “While the energy industry is rapidly evolving into a lower carbon future, reliance on fossil fuels will continue for the foreseeable future.

“Supporting 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.” Click here to read Faucheux’s full testimony.
