ABSTRACT
The article discusses the September 2015 move of oil company Shell to shutter its oil exploration in the Arctic. Topics include why Shell and its competitors in the carbon-extraction business are not abandoning Arctic drilling forever, the return of oil giants to seeking approval to drill again when the price of oil gets back, and the conflicted process behind the creation of the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's environmental impact assessment for the Shell drilling plan.
