Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Is oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico facing a sea change?

April 11, 2016 (8:52 mins)



Herman Wang and Brian Scheid

On this week's Capitol Crude, Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wanglook at the growing opposition to oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Abigail Ross Hopper, director of the Interior Department's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, says in an interview that the Obama administration is committed to fossil fuel development in the Gulf. But with cancelled lease sales in the Arctic and Atlantic, could phasing out sales in the Gulf be imminent? And with opposition ramping up, Jason Kowalski, the policy director with 350.org, tells Capitol Crude that Obama's climate legacy may forever be tainted if Gulf drilling continues.
