Drilling for oil offshore requires a great deal more financing than does 
land drilling. The reason for drilling offshore, that's where the oil is. 
Check out this web site.

Petroleum drillers make every effort to keep the crude oil from reaching 
surface waters. They spend a great deal of finances to undertake a large 
project. They can neither afford the losses of crude or the consequences 
of a large spill. 

I understand your reprehension for the oil companies, but they are making 
efforts to deliver products in an environmentally safe manner.
