Trump Expected to Approve Offshore Drilling Orders
On Friday, President Trump is expected to sign an executive order related to his “America First” energy policy called the “Executive Order Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy.” The order directs a review of areas available for offshore oil and gas exploration, as well as rules governing offshore drilling. The new measure would build on a number of energy and environment related executive orders signed by President Trump in his first 100 days.
OEP is seeking immediate reaction on these developments from its Expert community and has opened a Flash Discussion that will be available until 6:00 pm. Please limit your comments to 75-80 words.
*Expert comments may be shared with members of the media.
1. What impact will the EO have?
