Oil Ma|ors Rally To Support Offshore Energy Center

Offshore Energy Center (OEC) capital campaign leaders announced that more than $333,000 has been pledged by four major operators. The OEC is being developed on jackup rig Ocean Star at Galveston's Pier 19, and is reportedly the only center of its kind dedicated to all offshore segments with international and domestic operations. The four donor companies are: Amoco Exploration and Production Company; BP Exploration Inc.; Exxon; and Texaco Foundation.

Many domestic and worldwide oilfield companies and organizations are discussing contributions during the capital campaign, according to J e r r y M. B r o w n , OEC director and one of the campaign committee chairmen. The OEC is in the process of a $3.2 million capital campaign for funds to transform the retired offshore jackup drilling rig into a museum-like setting for use by all segments of international offshore business. When completed, all exploration and production operations will be explained through equipment exhibits, models and interactive displays. Meeting rooms and full guided-tour capabilities have also been included, enabling the center to serve tourism as well as industry functions.
