Quotes

"Californians have repeatedly spoken out against new offshore drilling," the members of Congress wrote. "It is imperative that we promote the use of these clean technologies and protect the integrity of our state's coastline from new offshore oil and gas development for both current and future Californians. The known risks of expanding offshore drilling in these areas far outweigh any potential benefits."
BOEM acting director Walter Cruickshank said: "As one of the most productive basins in the world, the Gulf of Mexico is a critical component of the Nation's domestic energy portfolio."
"Responsible development of America's oil and natural gas resources is vital to U S energy security and economic prosperity. Unfortunately, natural gas production on federal lands has fallen steadily, down 43 percent from FY 2003-2013, largely due to government policies restricting access: Only 13 percent of OCS acreage is open to development. No other developed nation puts comparable constraints on its own energy resources."
"The move is part of US President Barack Obama's all-of-the-above energy strategy."
