Deep-water drilling is set to resume near the site of the catastrophic BP well blowout that killed 11 workers and caused the nation's largest offshore oil spill five years ago off the coast of Louisiana.Everyone wish them well.
A Louisiana-based oil company, LLOG Exploration Offshore LLC, plans to drill into the Macondo reservoir, according to federal records.
Harper's Magazine first reported the drilling plans late Tuesday (May 12).
LLOG's permit to drill a new well near BP's site was approved April 13 by the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, an agency overseeing offshore oil and gas drilling operations. The company's exploration plan was approved last October following an environmental review by a sister agency, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.
