BOEM's Hopper, API's Milito discuss future of offshore energy development
With offshore wind energy seeing an uptick in investments in 2015 and offshore oil and gas adjusting to the market pressures of low oil and gas prices, the United States' offshore energy portfolio is changing. During today's E&ETV Event Coverage of Capitol Hill Ocean Week 2016, panelists discuss the current and future financing, policy and planning dynamics of offshore energy. Panelists include Abigail Ross Hopper, director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management at the Department of the Interior; John Weber, executive director of the Northeast Regional Ocean Council; Erik Milito, group director of upstream and industry operations at the American Petroleum Institute; and Nancy Sopko, manager of advocacy and federal legislative affairs at the American Wind Energy Association. The panel is moderated by E&ETV Managing Editor and host Monica Trauzzi.
