[quote:CrazyJarhead:MV8xMzQ5ODkxXzIyMjQ1MTI5XzE5RjMzMDdF] [quote:Nikki_LaVey] [quote:CrazyJarhead] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1254914] Isn't it great, finally someone whom does not cave into big oil. There are other sources that can be used including held back technology. It may be painful getting there, but fucking up our environment further is no longer a viable alternative, it is too far gone already. You would not believe the number of drilled wells that are capped and not pumping. I have family in oil and things are not as you would imagine. [/quote] Obama took more money from BP and big oil than any other politician. It has nothing to do with the environment. Obama wants to raise the price of gas so he can get people to agree with his Cap & Tax scheme. He's admitted the same. [/quote] He may have taken ther money but he didn't cave ino them. For the health of the Gulf h is doing the right thing. [/quote] Wrong again. Besides caving monetarily and deceiving the public about the bullshit 20 billion dollar fund that was never established, Obama allowed BP to lie about the amount of oil spilled. He also allowed it to use Corexit in the Gulf even though it's toxic. I could go on but you get the point. [/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.”
