Lawmakers want to extract more money from the industry to help pay for any future cleanups. And insurers are bound to raise rates for underwriting this risky business. What won't change includes expanding pursuit of oil and natural gas deposits under the ocean floor. Global offshore oil output has tripled over the past decade — and it is forecast to double in the next five years. The reason is simple: the best prospects lie beneath the ocean floor.
