Oil Drilling in US

7 years ago, the BP oil rig deputy, Horizon exploded, killed 11 crew members and released millions of barrels of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. This U.S. Was the largest oil spill in the history of.

In 2016, the Obama administration released the last set of rules and regulations on offshore oil drilling in an effort to prevent the occurrence of deep-water horizon accidents by having it again. Now, the Trump administration is trying to reverse those restrictions, as reported by The New York Times.

Internal Department's Security and Environmental Enforcement (BSE) - which was established in response to the 2010 oil spill, is now accusing the return of Obama-era rules. In an offer made by BSEE, the organization claims that the current restrictions are "unnecessary burden" on the drilling industry.


BSEE director Scott A. Angel said in a statement, "By reducing the regulatory burden on the industry, we are encouraging the increase in domestic oil and gas production, while maintaining a high bar for safety and environmental sustainability." Angeley said that the existing rules were kept on pre-assumption that "only more rules" would safeguard the operation. Instead, Angel suggested that it is "neither" or "situation" and the U.S. Together, "domestic energy can increase production and can increase security and environmental protection."


Another Policy Reversal
Although some groups, like the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA), supported this move, saying they "comment on this important regulation" and welcome other existing policies, other organizations are against reversal, they claim that This will only invite disaster

According to a report by The New York Times, "While drilling safety standards during offshore lease, there is a recipe for disaster while stopping safety standards during the lease," said Mioco Sankishta, director of the Ocean Program of Center for Biological Diversity, according to a report. "" By separating lesson from deep-water horizon spills, Trump is putting our beaches and wildlife at risk of more deadly oil spills. Leaving offshore security rules is not only regulatory, it is knowingly ignorance. "

The horizon of the deep water was not the first of its kind. About two years ago, in September 2008, BP had faced a similar accident in the Caucasus country of Azerbaijan, which resulted in a setback. In both cases, a "bad cement job" was called an important factor on the issue of succussee, both accidents happened before proper rules, and now work as proof of what could happen if the existing rule is removed. Are there.

The statement of director Sikshita can be applied to other reversal conducted by the Trump Administration this year, as President Obama decides to continue the Keystone XL pipeline project after it has been stopped. A few months after the decision was withdrawn, the pipeline leaked 210,000 gallons of oil, but he did not stop the clearance of the pipeline extension.

We have to wait and see whether BSE can reach its claim to increase energy production by providing better security to both its employees and the environment. As the world changes in the direction of clean energy, mutations of BSEE can only be beneficial for drilling and oil industries for a few years: a few weeks ago, the World Bank announced that it would search for oil and gas after 2019. Will stop giving financial assistance
