Hold Your Congressperson Accountable Today!
Your congressperson refuses to stand up and support oil and natural gas leasing in the Gulf of Mexico.
Offshore production in the Gulf of Mexico is vital to our energy security and a strong American oil and natural gas industry.
Efficient and reliable offshore exploration and production in this region provide us with the energy we need and does so in an efficient, low-carbon way.

By filling out the form below, the following message may be sent on your behalf:
U.S. oil and natural gas produced in the Gulf of Mexico is among the lowest carbon-intensive barrels produced in the world.
But instead of standing behind a sector that:
- Provides energy for American consumers
- Supports jobs for over 325,000 workers
- Bolsters our national security
- Generates millions of dollars in tax and royalty revenue
Your congressperson is choosing to remain silent.
There are real consequences to a loss in federal offshore leasing.
A recent study by the American Petroleum Institute found that a delay in the Five-Year Offshore Oil and Natural Gas Leasing Program could result in a loss of nearly 500,000 barrels of production per day until 2040. This would also result in an average annual loss of $1.5 billion in government revenue that could be used for public education, infrastructure, conservation projects, coastal restoration, and hurricane protection programs. Furthermore, a decrease in offshore production could result in increased imports and an increase in GHG emissions.
Act Now! Send a letter to your congressperson asking them to back a robust Five-Year Offshore Oil and Natural Gas Leasing Program that prioritizes American energy production. This would help meet the growing demand for affordable and reliable energy and support our country’s economy and national security.
