Nearly two years after the worst oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore drilling is thriving in the region. That’s because many oil companies are digging deeper for oil in the Gulf of Mexico than ever before. Most of these new wells tap into oil more than 2,000 feet below the surface. In one instance, a new deepwater well has been extracting oil at 9,627 feet below the surface of the Gulf.

The offshore drilling rig accident in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010 captured the attention of the world. The explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig killed 11 workers, sparked the largest marine oil spill in U.S. history and resulted in a moratorium on drilling in the area. The moratorium was eventually lifted. Now, drilling in the Gulf is back in full force. “In the short term and the medium term, it’s clearly the Gulf of Mexico,” Matthais Bichsel, a Royal Dutch Shell PLC board member in charge of the company’s new projects and technology, told an Associated Press reporter.
