From the point of view of an enviromentalist which is probably the most significant argument against offshore drilling for oil?
Ok, I'm an enviromentalist. There are just so many issues about offshore drilling. You know when you see all of the pretty white sand beaches in the brochures for tropical places and you'd kill just to go there? Yeah, well imagine all of those pretty coral reefs, the happy little sparkly tropical fish, and all of the magnificent sea turtles, dolphins, and the animals of this deep blue sea...gone. The relaxing clear water and the white sugar like sand completley black. It's like when you're in a parking lot on a rainy day and you see all of the pretty little swirly rainbow patterns in the puddles, yeah, sure, they're pretty, but only for a moment. Imagine that oil pattern over the ocean. If you're still not convinced tht offshore drilling is bad, think of the health hazards! no surfing, boogie boarding, or skim boarding for the world, and you can kiss relaxing on the waves goodbye. Yeah, Ok, the gas prices will go down but we can ride bikes too you know. We're really selfish sometimes, us Americans. im
Two words: oil spill
The president of the United States is elected by the electoral college. What type of system is this?
From the point of an environmentalist which is probably the most significant argument against offshore drilling for oil?
There is little need to take such natural resources from the ocean waters.
From the point of view of an environmentalist which is probably the most significant argument against offshore drilling for oil?
The possible harm to the balance of nature is more important than a gain in energy
Pros of offshore drilling are lower prices and increased domestic production. Cons of offshore drilling are carbon emissions and environmental hazards.
Offshore versus onshore drilling is drilling for oil in the sea, usually an ocean, but can also be a lake.
Offshore drilling is in operation in many parts of the world including the Gulf of Mexico

None. Any disaster caused by offshore drilling would be a man-made disaster.
One can find a list of offshore drilling jobs on many websites. Craigslist has a category designated to finding workers for these types of jobs. One can find a few listings of offshore drilling jobs on this website.
An offshore platform is a structure that is installed over as group of wells that was drilled by an offshore drilling rig. The function of the platform is to produce the oil from these wells. A platform can be mounted to the seabed or could be a floating type platform. Offshore drilling rigs are for drilling the wells and are mobile and moved from area to area. Onshore drilling rigs are mobile units too and… Read More
onshore is oil well drilled on land. offshore is oil well drilled in sea/ocean.
The population of Diamond Offshore Drilling is 4,200.
Yes, minorly, it is drilling mud.
On July 13, 1999, Schlumberger Ltd. announced that it had agreed to merge the offshore drilling operation, Sedco Forex, with Transocean Offshore, to create the world's largest offshore drilling company.

yes, he was for it first and then like mccain stole the democrat theme of change he claimed all of a sudden he to was for offshore drilling.
One is in the ocean and one is on land. It is pretty obvious!
A moratorium is a stoppage of pause (in this, of deep water, offshore oil drilling). It is difficult to view a stoppage - since nothing happens when a process is on pause or stopped. ;)
I assume you mean "difference" and not "deference". Onshore means on dry land. Offshore means out in the water. Offshore drilling is out in the water, like in the Gulf of Mexico. Onshore drilling means on land, like in Wyoming and Texas.

In offshore drilling, rigs mine oil from under the ocean floor. The oil is then carried to the surface via large pipes, so that it can be shipped away and refined into petroleum products.

Petroleum exploration is where a rig or ship is used to drill into the earth or seabed to locate oil reserves. For offshore exploration a drill ship, jack-up drilling rig or floating drilling rig can be used. For onshore applications mobile drilling rig is used.

Off-shore drilling is the search for and collection of oil lying in the ground under the relatively shallow waters of the continental shelf.
Near trenches!! Hope that helps and its 2010 yippy

Offshore drilling has rarely harmed the environment. In fact natural oil seeps pollute the water more than drilling operations and more oil/gas is spilled at gas stations than off drilling platforms. On a drilling platform even one drop of oil spilled is considered a spill and calls for major clean up efforts so they are tremendously careful due to new regulations. Some people consider their sight a eyesore however they provide many well paying jobs… Read More
50k per year offshore gulf of Mexico
Not much, if any. It'll take years before a single drop shows up at the pumps. And then there's the (rather silly) political point of view: Yes, because there will be more fuel... more fuel... less $ at the pump. Also, we will not be buying from other foreign countries... that's good. The only reason not to support offshore drilling is to "save the wild life". Unless you are an environmentalist... you should support offshore… Read More

If safety measures are taken and enforced drilling for oil off shore oil saves the land environment from oil rigs. Off shore oil drilling is very prevalent in the North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.
Pros of Deep-Water Offshore Oil Drilling: 1. Deep-water offshore oil drilling will result in greater domestic production. More offshore drilling will lead to greater domestic oil production and less reliance on imported oil, much of which comes from politically unstable regions. 2. An increased supply of oil will lower gasoline prices. Offshore drilling will increase the supply of oil, resulting in lower gasoline prices. 3. The state will benefit, as increased drilling results in increased… Read More
Onshore oil is a nickname for oil that is obtained through oil drilling that is completely on land, as opposed to offshore oil, which is collected from drilling under the seafloor with floating oil rigs.
Many laws and regulations govern where wells can be drilled. Offshore blocks are are under the control of the national government. They identify the offshore blocks which have potential for oil exploration. A company or group of companies can lease a block for a period of time. Typically, a drilling permit is required in which the Operator (holding a lease on a block) will have to demonstrate that the drilling is within the rules and… Read More
Well, most arguments against it are based on the environmental impacts as well as the potential of offshore drilling to discourage alternative energy. However, if drilling standards (including site planning, construction, resource retrieval and clean-up response) are made to be environmentally conscious (how much so? the difficulity is in the details) then offshore drilling is not necessarily bad. Due to growing energy demands, alternative energy is still an area of great research and experimentation of… Read More
The cons are mostly environmental. At this point in our history, many argue the pros outweigh the cons.
The oil spill started after a gas explosion on a offshore oil drilling platform from a gas pocket.
natural gas exploration and drilling, which accounts for 80 percent of all U.S. drilling activity, will be focused inland, petroleum exploration is shifting toward more offshore locations.
The petroleum industry's offshore operations began in the 1930s. Drilling in the shallow bays of the Louisiana and Texas Gulf coasts was conducted on wooden platforms mounted on timber piles.
