(B) distorts the meaning of the original sentence by saying that the reasons above are why offshore drilling is a hazard. It's making he claim that these are the main reasons which is outside the context of the original sentence.

(C) "offshore drilling, where" maybe you can use "where" when referring to the locations of offshore drilling, but this refers to the actual act of offshore drilling

(D) "due to the fact of" improper idiom, should be "due to the fact that"

(E) don't let the middle phrase confuse you, the subject is still chronic leaking, which is singular so the vet attached to it should be "is" not "are"
