The Obama administration said drilling can resume once companies comply with new drilling rules and show they have adequate blow-out containment resources. The ban was put in place after the Deepwater Horizon disaster in April, which killed 11 workers and resulted in America’s biggest ever oil spill. There is still uncertainty about exactly when drilling will resume, as wells need to pass independent inspections as part of the new rules. “There is a difference between lifting the moratorium and securing the drilling permits needed to return to work,” said oil company Shell, which operates the Perdido well in the Gulf of Mexico. “It’s imperative to ensure agencies have the capacity to process the back log of drilling permits in a timely manner and consistent with the new safety rules.”KBC Advanced Technologies consultant Mark Routt said: “That uncertainty itself can lead to rigs moving away or companies pursuing opportunities elsewhere. We continue to have a cloud over what’s going to happen here.” US lifts its ban on Gulf drilling early but toughens up regulation center_img Tuesday 12 October 2010 9:10 pm KCS-content More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Tags: NULLlast_img
