ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the plan to drill in the Beaufort Sea of the Arctic Ocean, approximately 15 miles from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge by a drilling fleet under contract to Shell Oil, expected to penetrate deep within the Chukchi Sea, on the rich bird habitat and nurseries. The U.S. Geological Survey concluded that it is unclear if countermeasures to address an oil spill can be effectively deployed in the Arctic Ocean.
