Former Louisiana State Official Named Director of BSEE

Scott A. Angelle was most recently the vice chairman of the Louisiana Public Service Commission.

According to an agency news release, Scott A. Angelle has been named to run the federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, an agency created after the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Angelle most recently served as the vice chairman of the Louisiana Public Service Commission.

"Scott Angelle brings a wealth of experience to BSEE, having spent many years working for the safe and efficient energy production of both Louisiana's and our country's offshore resources," Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke said. "As we set our path towards energy dominance, I am confident that Scott has the expertise, vision, and the leadership necessary to effectively enhance our program and to promote the safe and environmentally responsible exploration, development, and production of our country's offshore oil and gas resources."

After the BP oil spill, Angelle served as a liaison to the federal government and negotiated an end to the drilling moratorium.

"I welcome the opportunity to serve President Trump and Secretary Zinke, and work with BSEE staff to meet the critical goal of energy dominance for our country," he said. "It is an exciting and challenging time for BSEE; I look forward to leading our efforts to empower the offshore oil and gas industry while ensuring safe and environmentally responsible operations."
