Governors call for expanded offshore development and exploration


Potential good news for builders and designers of Offshore Vessels?

In a recent post at by Bill Pike, “the governors of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia began a strong push for oil and gas development off their shores.”

Many states are pushing for more development of offshore resources, specifically as it relates to the exploration of oil and gas reserves which could be vital to individual state coffers.

That could lead to more jobs, more projects and more opportunity for East Coast and Gulf area yards to maintain their workloads.
