“Oil Firms’ New Dilemma: Save, or Borrow More?

Extracts

For years, big oil companies have been spending more money than they bring in. With oil prices having more than halved since last June, that is becoming an ever trickier way to run their businesses.

In the summer of 2012, the tug Lauren Foss towed the Shell exploration ship Noble Discoverer away from a beach in Dutch Harbor, Alaska, after its anchor slipped and the 512-foot vessel nearly ran aground.

The contractor operating the Noble Discoverer, Noble Drilling LLC, later pleaded guilty to eight felony counts for violating environmental and safety laws, and paid a $12.2 million fine. The violations were discovered during a U.S. Coast Guard safety inspection. read more
