Since January 2015, Shell wanted to return to the waters off Alaska to conduct exploratory drilling there. in the summer of 2014, it was initially planned to resume work, but an indictment of the US government forbid it. In 2012, Shell faced great difficulties, drilling in the waters around Alaska. Since than, the operation was suspended.

This is the moment for Shell to stay out of this fragile area for ever. It’s disappointing and very unwise.

A leading academic, Prof Robert Bea, from the engineering faculty at the University of California in Berkeley, who made a special study of the Deepwater Horizon accident, has raised new concerns that the recent slump in oil prices could compromise safety across the industry as oil producers strive to cut costs.


Shell is getting increasingly desperate to plunder the Arctic in any way possible. It has recently made a deal with the devil: partnering with Russian oil and gas giant Gazprom to access the Arctic through Russia. If this joint venture continues, an Arctic oil spill is practically inevitable.
