Offshore Drilling Issues – Water Pollution: Standard drilling techniques cause water pollution even when there are no accidents. Several hundred tons of drilling muds or fluids are used for each new well and smaller amounts are released during exploratory drilling. ehow

Water pollution: There are two main sources of water pollution from offshore drilling: drilling fluid and oil spills and leaks. Firstly, the drilling fluid is claimed to be toxic to marine life. This fluid, used to lubricate, cool and regulate pressure when drilling, contains petroleum products and heavy metals. The impacts of drilling fluid differ significantly, because it’s so often made up of different concentrations of the above elements and applied in different ways. Reported impacts include affecting the health and reproduction of marine life, reducing the populations of bottom-dwelling creatures and biomagnifying toxic substances in the food chain. hubpages
