Shell Obtains Permit to Drill in Deep-Water Gulf

By ISABEL ORDONEZ

HOUSTON—U.S. regulators have granted approval for Royal Dutch Shell PLC to drill a new well in the deep-water Gulf of Mexico as part of the oil company’s recently approved exploration plan for the area.

This marks the first time since last year’s Deepwater Horizon rig explosion that the government has approved plans to drill new oil-and-gas resources. Previously, regulators had approved only wells that were being drilled at the time the administration’s moratorium went into effect. read more
