Last week, newly sworn-in Senator John Kennedy from Louisiana joined the chorus of U.S. Senators and U.S. House of Representatives stepping forward and urging the Trump Administration to rollback the damaging Notice to Lessees issued by the previous administration regarding financial assurance requirements for decommissioning costs.

In his letter, the Senator said: “As you said last Friday in your inaugural address, ‘We’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry…’ That couldn’t be more true with regard to our energy sector and, specifically, the application of this Notice to Lessees.  It’s time that policies from unelected bureaucrats with extreme viewpoints be swept away so that we can put the American people back to work and make us less dependent on energy from the Middle East.”

We are thrilled Senator Kennedy stepped forward to support his constituents and the offshore industry throughout Louisiana.  You can read his letter to the Trump Administration by clicking here.

Thank you Senator!
