Key to our success
The OOC is successful because of our members expertise and dedication to safely locating and extracting one of our nation's most valuable resources. We maintain 12-standing subcommittees, including an Executive Board, that tackle the tough issues facing OCS operators. These committees regularly engage regulators and other critical entities through written comments, meetings, workshops and forums to identify and implement solutions that benefit the energy industry and other stakeholders. In addition to our subcommittees, the OOC can also quickly establish ad hoc workgroups to address urgent challenges or requests. Our ability to be nimble and mount a rapid response in one of our core strengths.
