Italy may cut minimum distance for offshore drilling -govt source

ROME, June 5 (Reuters) - Italy is considering reducing the minimum distance for offshore gas and oil drilling to seven maritime miles from 12, a source at the environment ministry told Reuters on Tuesday.

In a draft of a decree that may be reviewed by the Cabinet on Friday, Italy will authorise investment in offshore drilling that had been frozen after the 2010 oil spill off the Gulf of Mexico. (Reporting by Massimiliano Di Giorgio)
