Former Louisiana State Official Takes Helm at BSEE

Former Louisiana state official Scott A. Angelle has been selected to head-up the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE).

Angelle, who most recently served as vice chairman of the Louisiana Public Service Commission, will assume his new position on May 23, 2017.

“Scott Angelle brings a wealth of experience to BSEE, having spent many years working for the safe and efficient energy production of both Louisiana’s and our country’s offshore resources,” secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke said. “As we set our path towards energy dominance, I am confident that Scott has the expertise, vision, and the leadership necessary to effectively enhance our program, and to promote the safe and environmentally responsible exploration, development, and production of our country’s offshore oil and gas resources.”

Angelle, who will serve as the fourth director in BSEE’s history, has held numerous positions in Louisiana State and Parish governments, including interim lieutenant governor, secretary of the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources, and St. Martin Parish president.

“I welcome the opportunity to serve president Trump and secretary Zinke, and work with BSEE staff to meet the critical goal of energy dominance for our country,” said Angelle. “It is an exciting and challenging time for BSEE; I look forward to leading our efforts to empower the offshore oil and gas industry while ensuring safe and environmentally responsible operations.”

Angelle is a native of Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, and a cum laude graduate of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a Bachelor of Science degree in Petroleum Land Management.
