Special Counsel Wayne J. D’Angelo was mentioned in the Sea Technology Magazine “ST Conference Review” article. Mr. D’Angelo spoke at the National Ocean Industries Association 2014 Annual Meeting on “Endangered Species Act Offshore.” The article notes that he provided a primer on ESA and the implications of listing decisions, including consultation requirements and critical habitat designation. He also discussed the movement of “sue and settle” from onshore to offshore. He concluded with a brief listing of the more than 50 species that are currently threatened or endangered, which must be considered in nearly every phase of offshore energy development.
