[quote:Anonymous Coward 1158070:MV8xMzQ5ODkxXzIyMjQ0NzczXzM4NjAzNkYy] More than that is in the works buddy. I work offshore and I have talked to many people offshore. The government is not only blocking drilling permits but they are also blocking construction permits. So no new platforms or pipelines are going to be put in place due to BP and the government. The exploration industry is also crippled too because no one wants to even spend a dime looking for oil or gas since You cant drill for it. I used to have a great career where the work potential was unlimited but that all ended when Obama was elected. I have now had my small salary canceled and have only worked 3 weeks in the last 4 months. I am looking forward to oil going up beyond 200 dollars a barrel because the idiot Obama supporters enjoy watching Me squirm and so I guess I'll laugh when food prices go beyond reach for those envious pieces of shit. Hey I'll be hurting too but then again misery loves company and the typical Obama supporter taught Me that. [/quote]
As oil prices continue to climb, a backlog of more than 100 offshore drilling plans for the Gulf of Mexico are awaiting approval from the Obama administration, according to federal data.
The federal government has not approved a single new exploratory drilling plan in the Gulf of Mexico since lifting its deepwater drilling moratorium on Oct. 12. There are currently 103 plans awaiting review by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement.
The information reveals that the Obama administration — not the oil industry — is the culprit for the slowdown of drilling activity in the Gulf. The Gulf of Mexico accounts for more than 25 percent of domestic oil production.
“These new findings prove that BOEMRE cannot claim it isn’t receiving job-creating plans from oil exploration and production companies,” said Gregory Rusovich, chairman of the Business Council of Greater New Orleans and the River Region.
“The plans are there. Until BOEMRE reviews the 103 plans awaiting approval, our economy’s stability remains in jeopardy.”
