ABSTRACT
The article reports on the U.S. Department of the Interior's (DOI) cancellation of sale of oil leases in the Arctic due to a lack of interest, current market conditions, and failed exploration programme of oil and gas company Shell. It says that Shell has abandoned exploration in the Arctic after it failed to find commercial quantities of oil and gas in the Burger J exploration well in its Chukchi Sea lease. It outlines insights of Interior Secretary Sally Jewell on the cancellation of sale.
