ABSTRACT
While the allure of oil reserves in the Arctic Ocean has attracted the interest of several major energy companies, recent news has made it clear that the region is an extremely challenging and dangerous place to drill for oil. Royal Dutch Shell PLC -- the only company that attempted to drill in the US Arctic Ocean in 2012 -- has delayed plans to try drilling again this year because it needs more time to repair and upgrade its drill rigs and containment system after last year's string of mishaps. This announcement comes just prior to today's release of a review of last year's drilling activities by the US Department of the Interior.
