Trump Administration 🦀 Moving to Relax Some Offshore Drilling Rules Put in Place After Deepwater Horizon 🤬

April 27, 2018 by Bloomberg

SNIPPET:

Environmentalists argued the changes were not necessary and could jeopardize safety improvements. Oil companies didn’t lose control of any offshore wells in U.S. waters last year — down from eight such episodes in 2013, said Lois Epstein, an engineer with The Wilderness Society.

“The rule works and is vital to safer offshore operations,” Epstein said in an emailed statement. “Weakening it would not only increase the risk of environmental disaster, it could cost lives.”

Representative Raul Grijalva  , a Democrat from Arizona, cast the effort as part of “this administration’s obsession with more drilling and fewer regulations — whatever the cost” and said that was “the same attitude that produced Deepwater Horizon in the first place.”
