ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the U.S. government to delay the drilling operations of oil and gas firm Shell in the Arctic. Over 4 billion U.S. dollars were spent by Shell on the exploratory drilling program to tap an estimated 20 billion barrels of oil. The Arctic drilling plans have been delayed due to a series of obstacles such as a slow summer ice melt. Shell hoped to commence drilling five exploratory wells in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas off the northern Alaskan coast.
