As previously stated, CAPP firmly believes that offshore exploration drilling should be excluded from the revised designated projects list. Offshore exploration drilling is a routine activity in the offshore petroleum industry, is short-term (1-4 months in duration) and is subject to specific environmental requirements and mitigations prior to approval by the appropriate Offshore Petroleum Board.
