Taylor P. Mouledoux

+1 504.503.1503


Taylor Mouledoux is a shareholder with Looper Goodwine P.C. and enjoys a diverse energy practice that includes litigation, transactional, and regulatory matters both onshore and offshore.  His litigation experience includes a number of complex matters, including disputes on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) involving predecessor liability for decommissioning, Louisiana “legacy lawsuits” alleging property contamination from historical E&P operations, and trade secret disputes involving seismic data ownership and licensing.  He has also litigated environmental matters under the Clean Water Act and other federal statutes and has pursued and defended lien claims on behalf of operators and service providers under the Louisiana Oil Well Lien Act.

Beyond his litigation practice, Taylor advises clients on a broad array of contractual matters involving joint operating agreements, platform use agreements, seismic licensing agreement, and various other contracts utilized in the E&P industry.  He has negotiated several oilfield service contracts, including drilling contracts and master service agreements, and often counsels clients on insurance and indemnity matters.  Taylor’s experience also includes larger transactions involving asset sales and other divestitures, most recently including a negotiated withdrawal by a non-operator from multiple joint operating agreements involving substantial accrued decommissioning liability.

Taylor has also worked closely with a number of state and federal agencies on behalf of clients.  With his extensive experience addressing issues on the OCS, Taylor often interacts with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE).  Among other matters, he has represented clients in response to BSEE incident investigations and has worked with BOEM on issues relating to Oil Spill Financial Responsibility (OSFR), financial assurance, and other OCS leasing issues.  Taylor has also advocated for clients in matters before the Louisiana Office of Conservation involving site remediation and plugging and abandonment obligations.
