"The analysis by Quest Offshore concludes that the pace of government approvals of Gulf drilling permits has been climbing over the past six months and now is back to pre-Macondo levels. According to the research firm, the Interior Department signed off on 78 new exploration drilling permits and 36 new development drilling permits over the past year.

But that data also reflects a change in the Gulf, where energy companies are increasingly drilling more wells from a single facility. A surge in permits to drill wells at existing fields — rather than true wildcat exploration permits — are behind the increase, Quest said.

Projects with five or more wells “have seen a record permitting pace since late 2011,” Quest notes.

For instance, Chevron may ultimately use dozens of wells tied back to a single production facility to tap its Jack and St. Malo fields about 280 miles south of New Orleans. Shell is using numerous wells at its Mars platform to glean oil from that field."

For you right wingers, that would be the Obama Administration approving those permits.

Check and see who got the contracts.
That is the problem. America didnt get what few permits that were approved. Hugo and George Soros did..
This is old deflection news..Dont you remember the article posted about all the contracts going to Brazil and George Soros ?That might have been a couple months ago before you showed up in Denver with your desperate attempts to Slam Americans not on the left..

Got Anything from today ??? Or this week ?

The date on the article was Oct 31, 2012. You would have known that if you read the whole article..lol.

Chevron is an American multinational energy corporation headquartered in San Ramon, California, United States.

You like to claim BS yet you offer up nothing but BS as proof. Typical right winger ploy.

Jeezus..We already went through all of this one before..Ill re post all that if you like.Its meaningless at this point. Its all about obama and what he hasnt done for America. Anyone could have achieved what he did.He kept us no better than we were.He isnt manager material. You actually have to produce..Not REDUCE..There are more important things to consider right now. Show me all the contracts and who has them or you are wasting my time. Ill bet GE is involved in some way if not other countries.You do know George Soros anti American, Marxist billionaire owns GE dont you ? And thousands of oil rigs , dont you ? All in the Gulf ,dont you ? And George donated several million to obama, But you knew that didnt you ?

Thanks for sharing. I would really like to know more about pre drill pilings. My boyfriend has been working in the oil field for 10 years. Its kind of a family business. I'm trying to learn all I can so I can impress my future father-in-law. http://www.blackdogdrilling.com/pre_drill.htm
