[quote:Anonymous Coward 1158070:MV8xMzQ5ODkxXzIyMjQ1MDMzX0UxRkY4MjE2] The health of the GULF? Are You fucking serious? This has nothing to do with the health of the gulf and everything to do with picking the winners in the race. The MMS is denying permits for companies that are in direct competition to favored companies owned by political insiders. If You can't see that one little fact then You seriously need to open up Your eyes. The same thing is going on in the coal industry and the power industry. Look around You the evidence is all around us especially with all the rolling black outs. [/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.”
