ABSTRACT
The article discusses an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico following an explosion on a oil rig operated by the petroleum company British Petroleum (BP). The author notes that the accident has caused the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama to delay the expansion of offshore oil drilling near the Atlantic coastline and may result in changes to the U.S. Department of the Interior Minerals Management Service (MMS). Congressional support for bans on offshore drilling is noted.
