White Paper - BAT and Zero Discharge in Cook Inlet Last Updated on 2011-09-08 00:00:00 A Homer based conservation group released a report addressing measures it believes are necessary to prevent oil and gas blowouts of the type that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico last summer and other impacts to the economy and marine environment of Cook Inlet. The Kachemak Bay Conservation Society of Homer, released a 17 page White Paper today arguing that Alaska state regulations make plain that spill prevention contingency plans for oil and gas drilling platforms in Cook Inlet must cover all aspects of such spill prevention and containment. According to the group, with the increasing development of oil and gas resources in northern Cook Inlet (as illustrated by the recent arrival of a jack-up rig owned by the Escopeta Oil Company a couple of weeks ago), federal and state governmental agencies and the oil and gas industry have a responsibility to insure that such development is safe...

Now that it is clear that unpreparedness was one of the factors leading to the tragic loss of life and economic and environment impacts from in the Gulf oil blowout, one would think that we would have seen that last of “unlikely to happen” as a prevention strategy. Not so in Alaska. In fact, even as local communities and fish and wildlife populations attempt to recover from the Gulf spill, the Escopeta Oil Company (which recently transported an exploratory drilling platform to northern Cook...
