Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Reforming the Jones Act on safety is anything but smooth sailing for US oil



Herman Wang and Brian Scheid

The US' Jones Act and its impact on offshore oil production in the Gulf of Mexico is causing federal agencies to go public with their concerns. Platts senior editors Herman Wang and Brian Scheid take a deep dive into how the US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement and Coast Guard are publicly pushing Customs and Border Protection for some relief from the popular, century-old law.

Charlie Papavizas, a partner with Winston and Strawn, and a Jones Act expert, stops by to walk Capitol Crude through all the intrigue and drama in this developing story, which may lead to a new legal precedent or, possibly, a new fight in Congress.

Check back every Monday for the latest analysis of US oil policy news from leading Platts editors covering the Capitol. E-mail the editors at brian.scheid@platts.com and herman.wang@platts.com.
