Possible unauthorized chemical use by oil platforms in the Santa Barbara Channel
The Mission and State article The Student who took on Venoco raises questions about the notion of unauthorized acid use and disposal in oil extraction.
We interviewed the article's author, Natalie Cherot about the story and where the legal issues stand now.
The term "DOGGR" comes up in the interview several times. It stands for the California Department of Conservation's Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources.
