White & Case partner Daniel Hagan, associate RJ Colwell and analyst Aaron Bryant authored a byline in the October issue of Pratt's Energy Law Report. The article delves into a potential new setting for offshore wind development—the Gulf of Mexico—a body of water dotted with oil rigs and conventional energy infrastructure. The area is an as-of-yet untapped and unrealized opportunity to develop a large-scale renewable generation that will reap economic and environmental benefits for stakeholders.
The authors argue that by capitalizing on underutilized labor, regional supply chains and robust technical expertise in the domestic oil & gas industry, there may be significant returns in leveraging this knowledge base to build out this energy resource or retrofit offshore platforms to accommodate wind turbines.
