Petroleum News: MMS approves Shell’s exploration plan

Vol. 12, No. 8  Week of February  25, 2007

The regulatory process for Shell’s Beaufort Sea drilling plans passed a major milestone Feb. 15 when the U.S. Minerals Management Service approved the company’s eastern Beaufort Sea exploration plan and the accompanying oil discharge prevention and contingency plan. MMS said its analysis found that Shell’s plans would not cause “undue or serious harm or damage to the human, marine or coastal environment.”

The exploration plan approval only relates to Shell’s drilling-related activities in the Beaufort Sea. On Feb. 6 MMS issued a separate permit for Shell’s proposed 2007 3-D seismic operations in the Beaufort Sea; the agency is still reviewing a Shell permit application for acquiring 3-D seismic in the Chukchi Sea. read more
