    Hornbeck Offshore comments on latest drilling moratorium

    News // July 15, 2010

    Hornbeck Offshore Services has said it is "reviewing" the US Secretary of the Interior's latest offshore drilling moratorium and has substantial concerns about its consistency with the June 22, 2010 order by US District Judge Martin Feldman.

    Judge Feldman ruled in favour of Hornbeck Offshore's action to block a six month federal moratorium on deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Subsequent challenges to the judge's order by the federal government were denied, including last week's ruling by the Fifth US Circuit Court of Appeals.
