The United States announced on Thursday (2) a final plan to reverse the safety standards in oil perforations implemented during Barack Obama's management, carried out after the explosion of the BP Deepwater Horizon platform occurred in 2010. The incident was the largest in the country's history in the oil and gas sector.
Last year, the agency of the Department of Environmental Safety and Applications (BSEE) suggested that revisions be made to the offshore control legislation of 2016, proposing the application of real-time monitoring of operations and certifications By third parties of emergency devices, among other points.
Now, the U.S. government seeks to ease the safety standards of the oil and gas sector through changes to the previous rules imposed by Obama, which, according to the industry's point of view, established financial burdens that jeopardised the Development and production of the American country.
