ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Interior Department has allowed a unit of Royal Dutch Shell plc to pursue its exploration plans at its Auger field 10 miles offshore Louisiana. This reportedly marks the first new deepwater exploration plan approved since the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill in April 2010. According to the Interior's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE), Shell has demonstrated in a site-specific environmental assessment that it could respond effectively to a blow-out.
