The Obama administration, joined by Royal Dutch Shell plc, has asked an Alaska district court to allow the U.S. Department of Interior to revise an environmental impact statement (EIS) used to support the Chukchi Sea lease sale in 2008. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in January ruled that Chukchi Sea Lease Sale 193 held in 2008 may have used inadequate information regarding available reserves and environmental risks (see Daily GPI, Jan. 23; Feb. 8, 2008). The ruling reinstated a 2008 ruling against the government that favored several conservation groups and Alaska stakeholders.
