The Gulf of Mexico oil tragedy: green fields and oil aren't friends

The Obama Administration today issued new suspensions on deepwater drilling on the OCS that will last until Nov 30, 2010.

Last week a federal appeals court rejected the federal government's effort to impose an offshore deepwater drilling moratorium, opening the door to resumed drilling in the Gulf while the legal fight continues.

Today, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar directed the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEM) to issue new suspensions of deepwater drilling on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), saying a pause is needed to ensure that oil and gas companies first implement adequate safety measures to reduce the risks associated with deepwater drilling operations and are prepared for blowouts and oil spills.
