Urteil betreff Unwirksamkeit des Moratoriums (Stop von Tiefseebohrungen) der US.Regierung vom Berufungsgericht im Eilverfahren bestätigt

British Petroleum und die Ölindustrie kämpfen an allen Fronten, zuletzt seit 7.Juni gegen die Verfügung der US-Regierung, alle  Tiefseebohrungen einzustellen (Moratorium).  Bislang sieht  es für die Ölindustrie gut aus, das erstinstanzliche Gericht hielt die Anordnung der Regierung für unwirksam, ein Berufungsgericht wies am 8.Juli den Eilantrag der Regierung ab, mit welchem beantragt worden war, die Entscheidung der Erstgerichtes vorläufig außer Kraft zu setzen. Am 30.August findet eine mündliche Verhandlung statt.  Details nachfolgend. Der Untergang der Deepwater Horizon hat einen Flut an Gerichtsverfahren ausgelöst (diverse Verfahren gelistet in diesem Blog)  Jeder gegen Jeden inkl. der Politik. Die Anwälte freut’s,  die Betroffenen Menschen sind die Leidtragenden.

Louisiana court overturns Barack Obama’s ban on drilling in Gulf of Mexico; Judgment may allow BP to resume offshore oil exploration; Wednesday, 23 June 2010; BP is free to resume deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico after a Louisiana judge overturned Barack Obama’s ban imposed in the wake of the worst environmental disaster in US history. The company operates at least one of the 33 rigs which have been idle since the moratorium last month, according to industry data.

BP declined to confirm the location of its rigs or whether it intended to resume deepwater drilling in the Gulf.

The ruling could also lead to further legal challenges by the oil industry against the White House’s handling of the crisis. The government has imposed a nationwide ban on issuing offshore drilling permits which could also come under attack in the courts.

Yesterday, Louisiana-based judge Martin Feldman ruled that the federal government’s six-month blanket moratorium in the Gulf was unjustified because it assumed that all deepwater drilling was as dangerous as BP’s.

„An invalid agency decision to suspend drilling of wells in depths of over 500 feet simply cannot justify the immeasurable effect on the plaintiffs, the local economy, the Gulf region, and the critical present-day aspect of the availability of domestic energy in this country,“ Feldman said in his ruling, according to the Associated Press news agency.

The ruling represents a victory for the oil industry and for state politicians. Both groups had argued the ban would result in tens of thousands of job losses across Louisiana if it stayed in place. Lawyers representing the oil services companies, who brought the lawsuit against the US federal government in New Orleans, warned a whole „ecosystem of businesses“ was at risk.

The White House said last night it would seek an immediate injunction against the ruling. „Continuing drilling at these depths without knowing what happened does not make sense,“ said spokesman Robert Gibbs.

But Camilo K Salas III, a New Orleans-based attorney, said Obama may privately welcome the decision. „Now they can say: ‚We did what we had to do but the judge overruled us.‘ That way they look good for trying to stop the drilling but the economy is not damaged.“

Obama has faced intense domestic criticism for not taking control of the crisis earlier and putting too much trust in BP’s ineffective attempts to tackle the spill.

BP has made recently huge discoveries of oil and gas in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico which require further drilling and development.

In September last year, it announced that the Tiber well, drilled to a depth of more than 3,050 metres (10,000 feet) in the Gulf, making it the world’s deepest exploration well to date, could hold as much as 3bn barrels of oil and gas. It dwarfs the Macondo prospect, where the Deepwater Horizon rig was drilling, at 1,500 metres and containing about 50m barrels.

Oil companies are likely to wait until the outcome of any appeal is known before resuming deepwater drilling.

Asked about whether BP would resume deepwater drilling in the Gulf, a spokesman said: „We have no comment on this case or decision, as we are not a party to the case.

„Most of the fleet of rigs we have under contract are responding to the spill. We don’t discuss publicly our drilling plans and the disposition of those assets.“

According to the Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association, last month BP had in place one operational rig affected by the moratorium.

Officials from the much maligned and now defunct regulator, the MMS, were reported as saying that BP had two in the Gulf. Shell had the most, at seven, according to the association, while Texas-based Anadarko Petroleum, BP’s partner on the stricken Macondo well, operated three of the 33 affected.

Environmental groups vowed to appeal against yesterday’s ruling. The Sierra Club, one of the groups which gave testimony in Monday’s hearings, said in a statement: „We haven’t even stopped the massive flow of oil yet, let alone begun to respond to the damage it has wrought. It’s like there’s been a car accident and we’re talking about how to get the vehicle on the road again while the victim is still bleeding.“

Interior secretary Ken Salazar imposed the ban on 27 May, more than a month after the accident took place.

He said that the ban was necessary to allow new safety procedures to be implemented and a thorough investigation of what caused the accident to be carried out. But Salazar was forced to apologise after officials said that the seven independent experts brought in to peer review their report into safety practices in the Gulf endorsed the moratorium.

The scientists and engineers argue that shutting down drilling – an operation which led to the explosion on BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig – is actually more dangerous than allowing it to continue.

07/08/2010 Open Document COURT ORDER – The motion for stay pending appeal is denied because the Secretary has failed to demonstrate a likelihood of irreparable injury if the stay is not granted; he has made no showing that there is any likelihood that drilling activities will be resumed pending appeal. The Secretary has the right to apply for emergency relief if he can show that drilling activity by deepwater rigs has commenced or is about to commence. Any renewed motion for stay will be evaluated on existing circumstances. It is further ordered that this appeal be expedited to a merits panel. The clerk will establish an expedited briefing schedule so the appeal of the preliminary injunction can be argued on its merits during the week of August 30. DENNIS, Circuit Judge, concurring in part and dissenting in part: I would grant the Secretary’s motion to stay the district court’s preliminary injunction pending appeal, and to this extent, I respectfully dissent from the majority’s order. I concur, however, in reserving the Secretary’s right to apply for emergency relief and ordering an expedited appeal and briefing. I will assign reasons for my dissenting view at a later date. [6568103-2] Judge(s): WED, JES and JLD, concurring in part and dissenting in part. [10-30585] [6577270-2] Case should proceed directly to OA Calendar? Yes . [10-30585] (NFD)
