Shell Oil Rigs — The First to Explore the Arctic Ocean in Decades — Delayed by Sea Ice

By Dan Fiorucci Channel 2 News5:45 p.m. AKDT, June 3, 2012 Seattle, Washington— The Vice President of Shell Oil in Alaska today told Governor Sean Parnell (R-Alaska) and Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) that heavy sea ice in the Bering Straight will delay historic drilling operations — scheduled for this summer. 

Those operations will encompass the first exploratory drilling in the Arctic Ocean — off of Alaska’s Coast — in 20 years. (In 2003, there was some exploratory drilling on what are called “Gravel Islands” off of Alaska’s Coast, but those operations are not comparable in scale to this one.

That word came as Parnell and Murkowski toured two massive drilling rings, The Kulluk and “Noble Discoverer”.

They will spend the short summer drilling season searching for what are believed to be massive oil deposits in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas. read more

Shell Drilling Rigs Ready to Leave for Chukchi Sea — Greenpeace is Watching

By Dan Fiorucci Channel 2 News6:05 p.m. AKDT, June 2, 2012 Seattle, Washington—

Rival Vessels are both sitting in the Port of Seattle tonight (Saturday).

And both are on the verge of an historic mission.

The first of those vessels consists of  2 unique drilling rigs — refurbished by Shell Oil.

They are the Kuluk and the Noble Disocverer. If all goes as planned, then both vessels will enter the Chukchi Sea next month. They will beome the first rigs in more than 2 decades to conduct exploratory drilling there.

So much oil is thought to be trapped beneath the seabed of the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, that it’s hoped that within the next decade or 2, it will add a million barrels a day to the flow of the Trans Alaska Pipeline. read more
