On Heels of COP26, Largest Offshore Oil, Gas, Drilling Auction in U.S. History Taking Place

Just days after President Joe Biden made promises on the international stage that the United States is on board to destroy the domestic fossil fuel industry, the largest auction of offshore drilling operations in history is taking place thanks to a 13-state lawsuit that challenged Biden’s executive order to halt all oil and gas operations on and offshore public lands.

The lawsuit, led by Republican Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, resulted in a federal judge in that state issuing an injunction to halt Biden’s effort and the resulting historic auction.
