Offshore oil industry stands to lose big under Biden

A federal review of the U.S. oil and gas leasing program is generating a fierce backlash from the hundreds of companies that operate fracking operations in the vast expanses of the Western U.S. Ahead of the formal launch of that Interior Department process Thursday—an event that will feature opening remarks from newly minted Secretary Deb Haaland followed by hours of testimony from stakeholders—environmental groups are putting their weight behind proposals to raise royalty rates and increase minimum bids.

“It is disappointing that some elected officials have sided with plaintiffs’ attorneys in support of job-killing lawsuits and a flawed settlement scheme that could put our coast further at risk. Through these lawsuits, the government seeks to impose sweeping, retroactive liability on the entire oil and gas industry for activities carried out according to federal laws and regulations decades ago. This misguided attempt to rewrite history and penalize energy producers for legally conducted operations that have been endorsed and incentivized by state and local leaders for nearly a century is a distortion of the law dreamed up and marketed by plaintiffs’ attorneys, presumably to serve their own financial gain.
