OMSA Applauds Lifting of Drilling Moratorium

The Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA) applauded the lifting of the ban on deep-water drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, but called for permits to be issued immediately so that work can resume and stability restored to the economy.

"This moratorium has kept U.S. vessels at the dock, canceled orders at shipyards and killed jobs for families throughout the Gulf region. Safe domestic energy production must resume," said interim President/CEO Jim Adams.

The ban has had a significant economic impact on the U.S. economy and has cost Americans more than 12,000 estimated jobs and has forced U.S. offshore vessels to leave the Gulf for oil exploration in other parts of the world. In order to keep additional vessels from leaving and to get U.S. vessels working again, drilling permits need to be issued to promote safe exploration and development immediately.
