Taylor Energy, the company responsible for an oil leak that has been ongoing since 2004 in the Gulf of Mexico, agreed to host a public meeting next month in order to provide information on the leak and Taylor Energy’s response to the leak.
The Jan. 20 forum in Baton Rouge is a key part of the settlement agreement that was signed with environmental groups in September. Another part of the settlement requires Taylor Energy to be paying $400,000 to Supplemental Environmental Projects that will help study and mitigate the impacts of oil pollution on the Gulf of Mexico and $300,000 to the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) for the purchase of hard assets such as boats and other research equipment.
For the purpose of this forum, a dedicated website was launched, at which summaries of all presentations are available to the public.
