ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee has voted to end the 25-year Congressional ban on drilling for natural gas in federally owned outer continental shelf regions. Those offshore regions extend for 200 miles off U.S. coasts and have estimated reserves of some 420 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, enough to meet all U.S. gas requirements for 18 years.
