Well, them and everybody else and their brothers.
EAST Timor is continuing to entertain plans to drill for oil in waters as deep as 1900m.
In one instance, it is using the contractor that was operating the Deepwater Horizon rig which exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in May.
Accompanying sharped-edged Facebook-friend commentary:
Guess what happens when a government implements inane, politically-based, moratoria and intentionally places roadblocks to offshore drilling. What happens is you kill American jobs, you reduce American energy independence, and from an environmental perspective, you send the rigs into the waters of countries that have no environmental capabilities whatsoever. D'oh.
"D'oh" in the sense of "duh," I'm sure.
