Gulf Oil Spill Information Center: Overview

The Deepwater Drilling Disaster in the Gulf of Mexico exposed the dangers of offshore drilling to our ocean ecosystems, coastal economies and worker safety.

It is time for the U.S. to recognize that the risks of offshore drilling far outweigh any benefits. Despite the oil industry’s statements, events like this will happen again unless we act to prevent them.

Oceana is calling for an immediate ban on all new drilling in U.S. waters.
