A web search can reveal many points.  I have composed a list of web sites on off shore drilling and I think it might be for you to search them to find what it is that you seek.  The ehow article is a fairly direct pros and cons listing of off shoring and its implications.  The buzzle article speaks directly to the idea of off shoring impacting the company's reputation.  The squidoo article speaks to off shore drilling from a human resources standpoint and how professional opportunities are available in such work.  I think that given the directed focus of some of the prompts, you might also want to examine the blogs that are out there on the issue and build from there.  Some of these blogs feature original articles that provided the impetus for writing the blog and this might be of help to you.  I will say that it might be good for you to use evidence post BP oil spill.  Some of the older web sites speak of "environmental disasters unlikely."  Another example was a site that I found from March 2009, which suggested that the Obama administration was willing to investigate off short drilling.  Given the stance struck with the recent oil spill in the Gulf, this is not likely for some time.  When the date on the article is 2008 or 2005, it slightly lessens the credibility of the information.  Trying to pull information that is written in light of the BP disaster, it might help the claims you wish to make.
