May 28 (Bloomberg) -- Robert Johnston, director for energy and natural resources at Eurasia Group, talks with Bloomberg's Lori Rothman about the outlook for offshore drilling in the U.S. following BP Plc's oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. President Barack Obama yesterday extended by six months a moratorium on new deep-water drilling permits that began after oil started to spill from BP’s well. The president also canceled a proposal to drill for oil off the coast of Virginia and suspended planned drilling by Royal Dutch Shell Plc of exploratory wells in the Arctic off Alaska.
