Biden administration suspends federal oil and gas permitting
This is big and could severely hurt a blue, Democrat Governor state like New Mexico who depends on oil & gas for its budget.

quote:

(Reuters) - The Biden administration has temporarily suspended oil and gas leasing and permitting on federal lands and waters while it evaluates the legal and policy implications of the program, according to a Department of Interior memo.

The move appears to be a first step in delivering on newly sworn-in President Joe Biden’s campaign promise to ban all new federal drilling permits, part of his wider agenda to combat global climate change.




quote:

In the order, dated Jan. 20 and seen by Reuters on Thursday, Biden’s Acting Interior Secretary Scott de la Vega suspended the authority of agency offices to issue fossil fuel authorizations, revise land management plans, approve ground-disturbing activities, and more.

During the pause, activities may be approved by certain agency officials in Washington, the memo said.

“Temporarily”.

How long was the permitorum in the Gulf after the Deepwater Horizon incident under Obama?

Yea, and how many gallons of fuel did they burn yesterday in all those Cadillac Limos and SUVs at the inauguration!

Double standards are omnipresent within the Democratic Party!

Ride a bike, JOE!

In the heart of the producing Permian acreage in New Mexico (Eddy & Lea County), I'd say something like 40% BLM (Bureau of Land Management), 35% State of NM and 25% private surface/minerals.

So yeah, their state's Democrat administration and legislature is going to have a hell of a time trying to fund it's public education system now. I thought Democrats were so concerned about the public school children??

re: Biden administration suspends federal oil and gas permitting
I do think this (along with Keystone cancellation) shows this administrations adversity to oil and gas industry.

But this is limited to federal lands. I don’t think that’s as big of an issue. State and private lands aren’t impacted by this.

Edit: after reading response about Permian. Bigger impact than I would have assumed. Thanks for the info.

Someone told you so.

They will be crushing oil/gas States which are preliminarily Red/Swing states.

Defund red oil states first, its real easy to do.

If you know anything about the Permian Basin, then you'd know this is a significant chunk of the Tier 1 acreage out there.
