In the U.S., governance of offshore minerals and regional development activities are bifurcated between state and federal law.

New Government Report: Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill: Selected Issues for Congress (ISBN: 1437934730)

Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill: Selected Issues for Congress (ISBN: 1437934730)
By Curry L. Hagerty and Jonathan L. Ramseur
(Paperback, 33 pages, 2010, $25)

On April 20, 2010, an explosion and fire occurred on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. This resulted in 11 worker fatalities, a massive oil release, and a national response effort in the Gulf of Mexico region by the federal and state governments as well as British Petroleum (BP).

The bipartisan commission named by President Obama in May to study the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the future of American offshore drilling will hold its first formal meeting in mid-July at the earliest, most likely delaying the delivery of its final report into next year, reports the New York Times.

Contents of this report: (1) Intro.; (2) Setting in the Gulf of Mexico: Oil and Gas Recovery; Weather and Ocean Currents; Biological Resources; (3) Offshore Oil and Gas Drilling Technology; (4) Federal Statutory Framework; (5) Federal Regulatory Framework; (6) Environmental and Economic Impacts; (7) Labor Issues; (8) Reorganization of Minerals Management Service (MMS); (9) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Issues; Exxon Valdez; Recent Regional Disaster History; (10) Conclusion. Charts and tables.
