Offshore Drilling Issue Paper
The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce:
- Supports responsible exploration off-shore of South Carolina’s coast to determine what resources are available, in a way that minimizes impact to marine life and the environment. The Chamber does not have a position on off-shore drilling and will develop a position once exploration is complete.
- Opposes the development of related on-shore facilities along Charleston’s coastline until careful consideration is given based on our focus on recreation & tourism, fisheries and regional conservation efforts;
- Supports the development of an adequate supply of natural gas for the region for economic development;
- Supports revenue sharing should offshore drilling become viable off of the coast of South Carolina.
