Be heard: Write to Congress to protest drilling ban

Posted on 04 June 2010

IADC is actively engaged in working to achieve a resumption in Gulf of Mexico drilling as soon as possible and is asking for help in the effort.

A new website contains downloadable, pre-addressed model letters to US congressmen and senators across the Gulf Coast region. A generic, unaddressed model letter for other congressmen and senators also has been posted, as has information to help locate representatives.

IADC urges you to make use of this information personally and forward to your friends and colleagues.

“It is vital that Congress understands the importance of offshore drilling to the livelihoods of hardworking families and communities across the Gulf Coast, and the importance of Gulf of Mexico oil and natural gas to our economy,” said IADC president Dr Lee Hunt.

The website also includes additional information relevant to the spill.
