Heavy ice stopping Shell oil drilling

by thepariah on June 4, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


SEATTLE – The heaviest polar ice in more than a decade could postpone the start of offshore oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean until the beginning of August, a delay of up to two weeks, Shell Alaska officials said. . .

“We’re seeing multiyear ice that they’ve not seen in such large quantities in over a decade, and it could impact our ability to start the well,” Slaiby said. Of particular concern, he said, is the region of the Chukchi Sea around the company’s Berger Prospect – potentially the crown jewel of the company’s offshore oil inventory – which in normal years would be accessible by mid-July. This year, it may be unreachable until late July or early August.

Oh my, just when the Guardian is promoting the idea that arctic ice will be 75 percent gone by the time lowest extent for the year is reached a few months from now.

Alarmists can't get anything right.
