While the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig has put a moratorium on deep water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, new mapping technology has allowed companies to start re-exploring the shallow waters in the region, that were previously deemed unprofitable. Shallow water drilling has been left off the moratorium, as rigs that are anchored in the ground are relatively safer than the floating rigs used in deep water drilling.
