Shell’s Alaska Drilling Delayed by Bureaucracy, Republicans Say

By Kasia Klimasinska on August 02, 2012

Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA)’s drilling on U.S. leases off Alaska’s north coast is being delayed by federal bureaucrats, House Republicans said today in pushing to speed development by citing success on private lands in North Dakota.

North Dakota and its Bakken shale formation overtook Alaska as the second-largest oil-producing state in March, according to the Energy Information Administration. Alaska is seeking new oil sources as output from the nation’s largest field, Prudhoe Bay, declines and the flow through the Trans-Alaska pipeline drops. read more

Shell offers free fill-ups for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles

The oil company opens a station in Newport Beach where hydrogen will be available at no charge, but only 200 cars statewide can take advantage of it.
