BBC News - Ban on Gulf of Mexico oil drilling to be lifted

The moratorium on deep-water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico is to be lifted, the US government has confirmed.

The six-month ban was introduced in the aftermath of April's BP oil spill, but calls had been growing for it to be ended because of its economic impact.

Before oil firms can resume deep-water work in the region they will first have to meet a range of new safety rules.

A federal report said the moratorium had caused a temporary loss of between 8,000 and 12,000 jobs in the Gulf.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
