The closure of Platform Holly is in line with the values of our district. It is a step away from fossil fuels and a step toward the future of a cleaner Santa Barbara Channel and California Coast.

Santa Barbara knows firsthand the destruction that offshore oil can cause. Residents, local businesses, and marine life will now have the assurance that control of Platform Holly and the Goleta Beach Oil Piers will be returned to the State of California, where offshore oil permits cannot be issued.

Venoco has a long history in Santa Barbara County, and the contributions made to the county over the years, through philanthropic programs and support of the local economy should not be dismissed, but the decommissioning of Platform Holly is an encouraging stride for the health and safety of our families, beaches, marine life, and planet.
