ABSTRACT
The article reports on the praise received by the U.S. Congress from the chemical industry after opening of a small part of the eastern U.S. Gulf region to oil and gas development. Under the bill, 8.3 million acres of the eastern U.S. Gulf will be opened to oil and gas development. The gas producers association estimated that the first new gas from the eastern Gulf areas now open to development would not come onshore for perhaps two years.
