BATON ROUGE, LA (WGMB) - New rules for offshore drillers are set to be released next week.
The move comes as the ban on deepwater drilling comes closer to being lifted.
The Obama Administration will address issues like workplace safety and rig procedures.
Many of those rules are expected to come from the recommendations made in a report officials released in May.
The Interior Department wants the new rules in place before the moratorium is lifted.
That is set to happen on November 30th.
