Map: Gulf of Mexico oil production

By popular demand, the map of oil production in the Gulf of Mexico. This map comes from testimony (pdf) by SkyTruth president John Amos to a Senate panel last year. Green lines represent active pipes (25,000 miles in all). Yellow dots represent oil rigs. Of the 3,600 yellow dots, 33 would be affected by the moratorium on deepwater drilling. As we reported Friday, the judge who overturned the moratorium, Martin Feldman, is heavily invested in oil and gas companies, including BP and Exxon. Judge Feldman sold his Exxon stock at the opening of the market on June 22, just before overturning the moratorium. Exxon owns one of those of 33 yellow dots. Bloomberg reports the judge probably lost a little money on the transaction. [TRMS segment]
