  • This monograph (a preferable term here to ‘book’, I believe) was conceived after I had done a good deal of broadcasting, within the UK and internationally, on the Gulf Coast oil spill. Time is always limited in a broadcast, and facts and valid perspectives need to be got across succinctly to the exclusion of shallow comments which hardly leave a viewer or listener any better informed. I like to go to a broadcast having made a few jottings from news sources which as well as being possible material for the broadcast have attuned my mind to the topic shortly before...

  • Raising the Bar for Safety: In response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the Obama Administration has launched the most aggressive and comprehensive reforms to offshore oil and gas regulation and oversight in U.S. history. The reforms, which strengthen requirements for everything from well design and workplace safety to corporate accountability, are helping to ensure that the U.S. can safely and responsibly expand development of its offshore energy resources.

  • We begin this book during the Fourth of July weekend, 75 days after the Deepwater Horizon exploded, burst into flames, and sank, killing 11 men. In the wake of this accident came the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. The starting date of our writing is significant because this is a weekend when normally thousands of people would descend on the beaches and restaurants of the Gulf Coast. The Gulf is a place of great bounty. A couple of hours with some traps produces enough blue crabs to make a cauldron of gumbo that can feed a family and guests for days.

  • Of course the Deepwater Horizon oil spill served as a reminder that we must develop our domestic energy resources both safely and responsibly. Eleven men died and Americans watched as nearly five million barrels of oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico. Subsequent reviews exposed significant weaknesses in the regulatory process and an industry unduly complacent about the safety of offshore oil and gas development.

  • Already, the Administration has launched commonsense requirements to improve safety, including directing deepwater operators to demonstrate that they have the capability to contain a sub-sea discharge like the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Since these important new standards were put into place, the Department of the Interior has continued to issue shallow water permits – and the pace of deepwater permitting has escalated now that operators have begun successfully demonstrating containment capability. ...

  • The aforementioned water scarcity problems, water quality problems, and climate-related impacts will be a major challenge to businesses in the years ahead. It is increasingly clear that the era of cheap and easy access to water is ending, posing a potentially greater threat to businesses than the loss of any other natural resource, including fossil fuel resources. This is because there are various alternatives for oil, but for many industrial processes, and for human survival itself, there is no substitute for water.
