BOEM’s new draft oil and gas leasing program could open nearly all U.S. coastal waters to offshore drilling. Thank you everyone who submitted comments on the draft plan. Stay tuned for updates.
Public opposition to offshore oil drilling helped stop it from happening off North Carolina’s coast in 2016. It also helped convince Gov. Roy Cooper to take a strong stance against offshore oil drilling and seismic blasting. The waters off North Carolina should be off-limits to these destructive processes. They are too great a risk to this state’s coastal economy and environment.
