Seismic Testing in the Atlantic Ocean ... and Why N.J. Voices Need to be Heard

Seismic Testing in the Atlantic Ocean ... and Why N.J. Voices Need to be Heard
BY CHRISTINE BRENNAN

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-6) sent a letter today (March 24) to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), requesting that the agency hold a public meeting in New Jersey so that residents can make their voices heard on the issue of seismic testing in the Atlantic Ocean.  BOEM announced that they intend to hold public sessions to discuss the process by which interested parties can obtain geological and geophysical (G&G) permits to conduct seismic testing off the Atlantic Coast.  However, of the eight meetings scheduled, not a single public forum has been planned in the state of New Jersey.

“We’ve seen that oil spills don’t respect state borders.  Similarly, marine mammals and fish migrate and cross over state borders.  This testing is harmful to marine life up and down the Atlantic Coast and simply serves as the first major step towards offshore oil drilling, to which I am absolutely opposed,” said Congressman Pallone.  “This decision by BOEM is deeply disappointing, and I fundamentally disagree with their plans to move forward.  At the very minimum, though, New Jerseyans who will face the consequences of this seismic testing must be allowed to make their opinions heard at a public meeting in our state.”
