"This sale signals the welcoming of other potential partners in ensuring the Gulf of Mexico remains a hub for domestic energy production for many years to come. Keeping the Gulf of Mexico a key part of energy exploration and production remains the goal for many of us in South Louisiana. This sale helps strategically as it invites other companies to become more involved in the area while continuing to seek new ways to produce domestic energy off the coast of Louisiana."
