Question:
If the nearest refineries in the Gulf of Mexico area to these so called un-drilled leases are already operating at or near capacity -- what good would there be in adding an additional 20 million barrels into a clogged pipeline?
Drilling must be done in other market areas where the transportation of refined products are cost effective.

Because most of the cost of the products are the cost of the crude oil.

We could about triple the US oil production before reaching the capacity of our existing refineries. For every little increase in US oil production, we can quit sending so many dollars to OPEC.
