Oil and Gas Exploration on Georges Bank

A ban on drilling on Georges Bank has been in place since 1982, and the current moratorium runs through 2012. The US energy bill does not alter the drilling ban but lifts the prohibition on exploration, which was added during the 1990s. Consultants, gear up from both sides - for environmental assessments of future drill sites, geophysical studies and for the studies of the impacts of these studies on marine life. Fishermen - find a new job!
