NOIA President Responds to Vermillion Platform 380 Accident

Friday, September 03, 2010

On September 2, President of the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) Randall Luthi issued the following statement on the accident on the Vermillion Platform 380:

“Any accident in the offshore energy industry is certainly worthy of attention, whether it be as minor as a trip and fall or something resulting in serious injury. The good news is that today, there was no loss of life. But coming just four months after the Macondo well accident, today’s incident hits everyone’s radar.  While we do not yet know the cause of today’s accident, we must keep things in perspective, and remember that accidents happen in almost any occupation. We should also remember that oil and gas is vital to our economy and everyday lives. ”
