The Offshore Operators Committee (OOC) is a non-profit organization comprised of 136 members engaged in drilling and producing hydrocarbon resources in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean whose activities are focused on providing its member operators with information and technical support that will assist them in conducting their offshore activities in a manner that will promote sound safety and environmental operational practice.
