ABSTRACT
The article discusses U. S. President Barack Obama's approval for Royal Dutch Shell to start exploratory drilling in the Arctic Ocean despite a presidential drilling moratorium and congressional calls for offshore-drilling reforms. The operation is deemed a risky venture due to the icy and harsh environment and the absence of any infrastructure in the region. Shell and Obama's administration insisted that the drilling will start safely as Shell will be drilling in shallower waters.
