Trump Signs Order Opening Arctic for Oil Drilling

Irune Rengel | 09 May, 2017, 05:48

Mr Trump will also sign an executive order that seeks to expand offshore oil and gas drilling to areas now off limits, in his administration's latest move to expand domestic energy production.

"Although Trump's executive order is a review, we are hopeful it will proceed in uplifting predecessor Barack Obama's permanent ban on new oil and gas drilling in federal waters", LeBlanc says.

"Today, we're unleashing American energy and clearing the way for thousands and thousands of high-paying energy jobs", Trump said at a White House signing ceremony.

Trump's order will also direct Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to conduct a review of marine monuments and sanctuaries designated over the last 10 years.

"When President Obama withdrew irreplaceable and sensitive waters of the Arctic Ocean and important parts of the Atlantic Ocean from offshore drilling, it was a bold step in protecting these seas for our future and girding the global community against the worst effects of climate change", said Trip Van Noppen, president of the environmental group Earthjustice.

As part of the strategy, NPR reports that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has been ordered to review Obama's five-year plan, which included banning regions from energy exploration. And on Wednesday, he signed another executive order that could expand oil and gas development on wilderness areas now protected as national monuments. Trump's executive order directs the Interior Department to review that plan. The move sets in motion a potential reversal of President Barack Obama's last-minute attempts to withdraw vast swaths of US waters from lease sales to fossil fuel companies. That also put restrictions on additional oil and gas drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Worldwide prices for oil have dropped in recent years, with a review by news agency Reuters finding the amount of money oil companies spent in the central Gulf of Mexico's annual lease sale dropped by more than 75 percent between 2012 and 2017.

"We will vigorously oppose new drilling off the shores of our coast", California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement after Trump signed the order.

However, Trump's order will remove that avenue, through which the tribes could raise concerns about how drilling could affect the coast.

President Donald Trump acted Friday to expand offshore oil drilling, a move that could affect Florida, which seven years ago this month reeled from the BP oil catastrophe.

"We are pleased to see this administration prioritizing responsible USA energy development and recognizing the benefits it will bring to American consumers and businesses", said American Petroleum Institute CEO Jack Gerard in a statement. "I doubt President Trump would want to see Mar-a-Lago, or any of his other coastal resorts, covered in oil", Savitz added. "We can not afford another disastrous oil spill", Congressman Salud Carbajal said, adding that California's coastal region generates over $1.9 trillion per year in GDP.
