Shell Proposes Multi-year Exploration in Chukchi Sea


The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has invited public comment in connection with a revised exploration plan submitted by Shell Gulf of Mexico, Inc. Shell’s plan proposes to conduct a multi-year exploration drilling program in the Chukchi Sea in the Arctic Ocean, beginning in July 2012. The plan proposes to drill up to six wells within the Burger Prospect, located about 70 miles off the coast in approximately 140 feet of water. Shell would conduct its operations using the drillship Noble Discoverer and various support vessels, with the Discoverer departing the Chukchi Sea at the end of each season.
