Canada's Pacific Ocean has remained free from the threat of oil and gas exploration and drilling in its offshore waters for more than thirty years. Federal and provincial moratoria have protected the mammals, fish, seabirds and marine ecosystem from the threats of oil .   Offshore oil drilling in the Arctic comes with more risk due to inclement weather, ice conditions, and isolation, leading to an increased chance of detrimental oil spills occurring in the area, at the cost of oil companies and members of the marine ecosystem (Hoag, ).

More oil and gas wells are drilled onshore than offshore, requiring more man hours and creating more exposure to risk. As a result, onshore drilling consistently has higher lost-time-incident (LTI. Regulatory Impact Analysis Statement Issue. The Impact Assessment Act (IAA) establishes an impact assessment process that serves as a planning tool, which takes into consideration a range of environmental, health, social and economic effects of “designated projects”.Offshore exploratory drilling projects are one type of project subject to the requirements of the IAA.

  A decision by the Obama administration Friday to postpone new offshore oil-and-gas exploration in U.S. Arctic waters deals a setback to energy companies hoping .   Syria plans to start gas exploration in its offshore areas in early , and has signed contracts for five offshore blocks with “friendly countries”, local media quoted Syrian Oil and Mineral.

Offshore Drilling Not Worth the Risk Protect communities, fisheries, tourism and climate from Big Oil Despite the well-documented need to rapidly move toward a renewable energy future, provincial and federal governments are continuing to support exploration for offshore oil and gas in Nova Scotian waters.

The offshore oil industry of Nova Scotia accounts for about % of Canadian petroleum production. The majority of its offshore industry is located on the Nova Scotian continental Shelf, within the Sable Island offshore natural gas fields.

InNova Scotia produced m 3 of liquid natural gas per day. BP, the same company responsible for the Deepwater Horizon disaster that saw million barrels of oil spilled in the Gulf of Mexico, the death of 11 workers, and devastating consequences for local fisheries, economies and communities, has started offshore drilling near Nova Scotia.

Equinor (formerly Statoil) is. President Barack Obama designated the bulk of U.S.-owned waters in the Arctic Ocean and certain areas in the Atlantic Ocean as indefinitely off limits to future oil and gas leasing.

Novem The largest-ever oil spill off the coast of Newfoundland has raised fresh safety and environmental concerns about how the province’s expanding offshore oil industry is regulated.

Several European countries are moving away from domestic oil and gas production, and Ireland could become one of the first countries to fully ban offshore oil and gas exploration. Offshore oil and gas in the United States provides a large portion of the nation’s oil and gas supply.

Large oil and gas reservoirs are found under the sea offshore from Louisiana, Texas, California, and nmental concerns have prevented or restricted offshore drilling in some areas, and the issue has been hotly debated at the local and national levels.

The production of oil and natural gas is highly regulated and is subject to conditions imposed by governments throughout the world in matters such as the award of exploration and production interests, the imposition of specific drilling and other work obligations, income taxes and taxes on production, environmental protection measures, control.

Offshore platforms: • Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Platforms Operating in Texas State Waters ( miles from shore) • Oil and Gas Platforms Operating in Federal Waters (> miles from shore) These are the source types included in the emissions inventory. In. It was Februaryjust two months after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a ban on new offshore licences for oil and gas exploration in the Canadian Arctic.

The moratorium, which would be reviewed every five years, aimed to protect a pristine and vulnerable ecosystem with waters, the government said, that had “irreplaceable value. Offshore oil and gas drilling is moving further offshore and deeper underwater as energy companies seek to find sources of production in low-risk.
