e Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) has raised questions regarding potentially misleading text in the DOI report that recommended the initial six-month moratorium for deepwater E&P activities. According to E&E, the OIG has found that changes to the moratorium report could suggest that the entire six-month moratorium had been “peer reviewed,” when in fact only portions of the policy had been endorsed by a panel of outside experts. The OIG report goes on to note that U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar later apologized to the outside panel for any misunderstanding.
