In this sentence, there is a link between a boom, flexible regulations, and companies looking for new areas in which to drill. One question that could be drawn from this link is how flexible have the regulations been? Such does not answer this, it is a type or kind, and does not indicate the degree of flexibility in the regulations. How flexible have regulations been? So flexible (have regulations been). The element that distinguishes choice B as the right answer is that choice A has an extra so which changes the meaning of the phrase.
