Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Hess Corp. (NYSE:HES) will host a visit of a bipartisan congressional delegation to its Tubular Bells oil and gas production facility in the Mississippi Canyon area of the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

Tubular Bells demonstrates Hess’ capability to safely and successfully execute highly complex, deepwater development projects,” said Brian Truelove, senior vice president, Offshore. “We are proud to give this bipartisan congressional delegation an in-depth tour of our facility, which was the first classic spar built in the United States, creating an estimated 7,000 direct and indirect jobs in Texas and Louisiana.”

“Since August 2008, I have taken members of Congress to the Gulf of Mexico every year to experience first-hand how American energy is safely produced,” Rep. Steve Scalise (LA-01) said. “I am excited to have this bipartisan congressional delegation visit Tubular Bells to witness the cutting-edge technologies, unparalleled safety standards, and world-renowned ingenuity used in implementing these large-scale energy projects. Offshore energy production is vital to strengthening our national security, growing a healthy economy, and supplying an important source of revenue to restore Louisiana’s coastline, and I sincerely thank Hess Corp. for hosting us for the 2015 Offshore Energy Tour.”

The delegation joining Rep. Scalise includes the following members of Congress: Rep Larry Buchson (IN-08), Rep. Buddy Carter (GA-01), Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA-10), Rep. Paul Cook (CA-08), Rep. Gene Green (TX-29), Rep. Tim Walberg (MI-07), Rep. Mimi Walters (CA-45), and Rep. Ryan Zinke (MT-00).
