As the world returns to normalcy, the need for safely and reliably produced oil and natural gas and wind energy has never been greater.”

“I look forward to working with Erik, Paul, and the NOIA team in advancing our mission of educating and advocating for safe, affordable, and reliable offshore energy,” he said. “Whether in oil, natural gas, or wind, NOIA member companies play a critical role in our country’s energy security, job creation, and environmental stewardship. I look forward to telling our story at such a critical time.”

Danos underscored the offshore industry’s human element.

“The offshore energy industry is a people industry, and I look forward to working with the NOIA membership to ensure offshore energy continues to provide great jobs, energy security, and technological innovation in an environmentally sustainable way,” Danos said.

Houston-based Talos is an exploration and production company focused on oil and gas development in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and offshore Mexico. Danos is a family owned, Louisiana-based oilfield service provider.
