Villiers Reggio joined the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in 1976, where he aided in covering the leasing aspect of the offshore oil and gas program in the Gulf of Mexico. Reggio worked on National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) assessments, and was an early proponent of the rigs-to-reefs idea. In 1987, he published a small book that addressed the policy options for platform abandonment and reefing disposal, which would prove to be a foundational text for the rigs-to-reefs movement.
