Statement re: dismissal of Court of Federal Claims lawsuit against Interior

“Taylor Energy is disappointed with the court’s ruling.  However, by no means is this question resolved.  We are reviewing the ruling and will consider all options going forward.

“In addition, Taylor Energy had previously filed a related action against the Department of Interior, the Secretary of the Interior and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana challenging the Interior Department’s action as being arbitrary and capricious, an abuse of discretion and contrary to law. That matter is still pending before the Federal Court.

“Taylor Energy remains committed to its role as the current Responsible Party and continues to advocate for a response that is grounded in science and prioritizes the well-being of the environment.”
