Offshore Oil & Gas Policy Handbook 2011 - The Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Mandates Rethinking of Health, Safety and Environment Measures is the latest report from GlobalData, the industry analysis specialists, that offers comprehensive information on offshore oil and gas policy initiatives taken up by countries with significant offshore oil and gas operations, globally. There has been an ongoing shift towards looking out for oil and gas resources in emerging and frontier areas across different regions globally. In the US, it is prompted by the need to increase domestic production of oil and gas in order to bring down prices, as currently there is no real alternative to oil that can drive the US economy. In other regions like Africa, South and Central America, Asia Pacific and Europe too, there have been policy directives encouraging foreign participation for offshore oil and gas production across different countries. This is mainly because the onshore resources are depleting and the offshore areas are yet to be fully exploited.
Until the BP Oil Spill Disaster, offshore oil and gas activities were on the rise. The US offshore was witnessing increasing drilling rig activities. As per sources from Baker Hughes, in January 2010 there were about 40 rigs operating in US waters, which kept increasing until April 2010 to more than 50 rigs. In May, this number came down to 46 as a result of the Gulf of Mexico Disaster on 20 April, 2010 and continued to decrease with the onset of a brief moratorium imposed by the US government following the disaster.
