Biden orders review of O&G drilling in ANWR

The Biden administration will undertake a new environmental review of potential oil and gas development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska after citing what it called serious flaws in the initial review during the Trump presidency.

The Interior Department will file a notice of intent in the Federal Register on Wednesday that begins the process of conducting a supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the oil and gas leasing program in the refuge’s 1.6-million-acre coastal plain. The notice says the analysis will include “addressing the deficiencies” in the original Trump-era impact statement.
