    US approves first deepwater drilling permit in Gulf since BP spill

    NEW YORK The U.S. has approved the first deepwater drilling permit in the Gulf of Mexico since BP's massive oil spill.

    The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement announced Monday that it issued a permit to Noble Energy Inc. to continue work on its Santiago well about 70 miles southeast of Venice, La. Drilling will resume nearly one year after BP's blowout created the worst offshore spill in U.S. history.

    Provided all lawful safety protocols are followed and not just treated with winks and nods by inspectors I feel it's a good thing.

    yeah - did they get all that p0rn cleaned off the inspectors' computers? They should get out and inspect more instead of staying in the office and pulling it.
