Biden Regime Admits to Math Error in Gas and Oil Drilling Permit Delays -- During Greatest Gas and Energy Crisis in US History


Gas prices reached $4.59 on Friday. This was a new all-time record high for gas prices in America. It was the 11th straight day of all-time record high gas prices.

Despite this massive burden on the American public, the Brandon regime has done nothing to ease the burden. Prices are expected to continue to increase until at least Memorial Day.

The Brandon regime refuses to allow more US energy development during this historic crisis.

And now we know that the Brandon administration made a math error in delaying federal offshore oil and gas development permits.

The error was fault of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). What a complete disaster!

The Daily Caller reported:

The Brandon administration privately acknowledged in late April that a mathematical error is delaying the federal offshore oil and gas program, in a letter to industry leaders.

Richard Spinrad, the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), said a subagency “discovered a miscalculation” that has caused a massive backlog in permitting, in the April 29 letter obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. Spinrad acknowledged the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) — the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) — has used faulty modeling on such impacts and, as a result, overestimated wildlife effects, delaying permitting on existing leases.

“NMFS understands the concerns of industry and is working with [the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM)] to expeditiously develop … revised regulations,” Spinrad wrote in the letter to the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA).

The NOAA administrator’s letter came in response to an April 5 letter from NOIA, the American Petroleum Institute and the EnerGeo Alliance, warning that energy producers had experienced significant permitting delays. In particular, oil and gas companies have reported delays in obtaining letters of authorization (LOA) from the NMFS to conduct pre-drilling activity, including seismic surveying and geological exploration, in the Gulf of Mexico.
