Federal Court on Obama Drilling Permit Delays: “unreasonable, unacceptable, and unjustified.”

Deepwater Petroleum Exploration & Production: A Nontechnical Guide

(CNN/Money) — A federal court ordered the Obama administration Thursday to act on five deep water drilling permits in the Gulf of Mexico within 30 days, calling the delays in issuing new decisions “unreasonable, unacceptable, and unjustified.”

In a case brought by the drilling company Ensco, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana Judge Martin Feldmen ruled that the four to nine months the company has waited for a decision on the permits it has a stake in is simply too long.
