News Release Securing America's Future Energy January 19, 2010 Military Leaders Conclude No Harm to Training by Gulf Oil ExplorationWASHINGTON - Securing America's Future Energy (SAFE) today released an in-depth analysis of the potential impact on military activities, including training and weapons testing, deriving from expanded oil and natural gas exploration in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico. The paper - entitled Eastern Gulf of Mexico Oil and Gas Exploration and Military Readiness and produced in collaboration with Commonwealth Consulting Corporation, led by Col. Martin Sullivan, USMC (Ret.) - concludes that there is no credible evidence that expanded oil and natural gas exploration and development in the Eastern Gulf would adversely affect military missions in that area.
