WSPA President Statement on the 50th Anniversary of Santa Barbara Oil Spill

As we mark the 50th anniversary of the tragic Santa Barbara oil spill, it is important that we remember our coastal communities most affected by this incident and how they’ve inspired not only reform and innovation but a global movement to support environmental protection.

In that spirit, the employees of California’s oil and gas industry are fervently committed to continuous safety improvements in all of our operations, whether that be through innovative technologies or by partnering with the dozens of federal, state and local agencies that regulate oil & gas operation in our state. Our number one priority as an industry is in maintaining the safety and environmental integrity in the communities where we operate.
