U.S. -- Cuba Engagement in the Gulf: Lessons from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

As BP struggles to staunch the undersea gusher opened by its Deepwater Horizon oil rig more than three weeks ago - dumping hundreds of thousands of gallons of light crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico each day - there's a renewed focus on prevention and mitigation of disasters like this one. There's one part of this equation that few have considered before now: What if this spill had happened in Cuba's Gulf waters, where the U.S. embargo prevents American companies from operating, and American personnel from traveling? Given a recent report that a Spanish company may be drilling in Cuba's portion of the Gulf by the end of 2010, we'll ask our panel of experts to consider the risks and offer their recommendations for what action the U.S. should pursue now to protect our shared environment. http://www.newamerica.net/events/2010/us_cuba_engagement_in_the_gulf
