Skip to comments.Drilling off Keys to begin by December (Cuba)
Posted on 09/20/2011 7:10:06 AM PDT by Broker
A giant, semi-submersible oil rig en route from Singapore will probably be drilling in the Florida Straits between Key West and Cuba in mid-December. The rig could arrive earlier, but Repsol, the Spanish oil company, wants to wait until after hurricane season ends before it begins drilling. This latest report on the progress of the Italian-made Scarabeo 9 oil rig comes from Lee Hunt, the chief executive of the International Association of Drilling Contractors, who just returned from a trip to Cuba last week as part of a joint delegation with the environmental group, the Environmental Defense Fund. Hunt also said that Repsol plans on having one well drilled by the end of the year. Read more at the Miami Herald.

obviously this has to be stopped for environmental reasons, and then and only then can we get back to creating jobs.

Oh, and December Drilling is my favorite Drilling. :)
I hate when people drill off key. It sounds awful.
Oh.....that’s funny! :)
Plus, I also heard that Driling off Keys was to begin by December.
Is it a Cuban well or a US well?
Some funny posts here, but there is a big story: a non American oil company is allowed to drill where we don’t allow American companies to drill.
Oh, and the structure of the rig should make for some awesome fishing!!
Besides the double headline; you posted a one day old story in Breaking News?
You don’t post much, do you?
My dentist drilled off key. I told him to change his note or I’d kick his .... :)
My first thought as well -
the only way this bunch of commies is going to allow oil drilling in our territory is if it is done by and for the benefit of another country.
As I understood the LOST treaty we signed, the 200 mile limit if it conflicts with another nation’s 200 mile limit get divided at the midway point.
So, Cuba (spanish speaking as this article so carefully points out spanish) is owner of territorial waters 45 miles from Key West, if I understand correctly.
lol... life on FR can be brutal.
on a more series note...this is hugh news
This is more about....
WHY AREN’T AMERICANS DRILLING AND PRODUCING OIL OFF THE KEYS?
