Oil Platform Santa Barbara Channel 10-22-05

The Santa Barbara Environmental Defense Center’s 2014 challenge to Interior’s policy of offshore fracking with limited public notice has met with success by the courts.  The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and Bureau on Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) have agreed to re-analyze the environmental dangers of offshore fracking, with their environmental impact assessment of the process/policy to be completed by May 28, 2016.


Oil fracking off the Ventura and Santa Barbara coast has been halted for at least a few months.
