ABSTRACT
The article reports on the sinking of the semisubmersible Deepwater Horizon rig owned by offshore drilling contractor Transocean in the Gulf of Mexico, which has raised environmental concerns. The offshore drilling accident comes as the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama has promised to allow responsible oil and gas exploration in new areas of the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf. Some congressional energy policymakers have expressed concern about potential environmental impacts from oil that leaked into the Gulf.
