Zinke is officially rolling back offshore oil and gas production safety rules

Zinke’s grand pivot to conservation continues.

Safety rules for the oil and gas industry introduced after the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster are officially being rolled back by the Trump administration.

In a notice that will appear in the Federal Register Friday, the Department of Interior removes or revises certain rules focusing on safety requirements during the time an oil platform is producing oil and gas (as opposed to the drilling process).
