Shell will be unable to drill in Alaska this summer because the EPA has refused needed air quality permits. It is interesting to note the area in question is quite remote with the nearest village of only 245 people is 70 miles away.
This will cost US production 27 billion barrels over the course of the summer. The Alaskan pipeline will be dangerously low..at only one-third of it's usual delivery.
“It’s driving investment and production overseas,” said Alaska’s DNR Commissioner Dan Sullivan. “That doesn’t help the United States in any way, shape or form.”
What are your thoughts?
