Oil drilling in beaufort sea

Aboard Explorer IV The furious pace of activity being set by the flagship of Dome Petroleum Ltd.'s fleet of four drill ships in the Beaufort Sea appears to match the intensity of behind-the-scene Barack Obama blocked off the prospects for future oil drilling in the Arctic But a recently revealed oddity arising from a Beaufort Sea boundary dispute between Canada and the U.S. — along with the advent of a UN treaty allowing countries to claim ownership over extended continental shelves lying beyond the current 200-mile limit — has Conservation and Alaska Native groups called for a timeout on oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean's Beaufort Sea today, filing a legal challenge against Shell Oil's permit to drill in the region next summer.

Esso Resources Canada Ltd. used a low-toxicity, oil-based drilling fluid to drill a directional delineation well in the Beaufort Sea in the Spring of 1985. Because of virtual elimination of severe hole problems that were encountered previously with water-based mud, the company drilled three more with oil-based muds. Italian oil and gas firm Eni is drilling for oil in the Beaufort Sea, two years after Shell abandoned exploration in offshore Alaska, citing high costs and stringent regulations. In this July 2017 file photo, ice is broken up in the Beaufort Sea off the coast of Alaska. The Canadian government returned $430 million dollars to oil and gas companies that had planned on Shell is expected to start a controversial 3-year drilling program in August. It is expected to start drilling a dozen wells in the Beaufort sea about 30 miles off the Alaska coast. Canada’s Beaufort Sea contains major gas and petroleum reserves beneath the seabed, a continuation of proven reserves in the nearby Mackenzie River. Offshore drilling began in 1972 carried out by companies as Panarctic Oils Ltd., Petro Canada and Dome Petroleum and 176 wells were drilled.

15 Nov 2018 Last month, the Trump administration approved the go-ahead of the Liberty project to extract oil from beneath the Beaufort Sea, off Alaska's  Dome/Canmar's Beaufort Sea Exploration Project continues to present a unique challenge. Operations in remote areas are not particularly new to the oil industry   29 Mar 2018 The Trump administration is asking oil and gas companies where they might want to drill offshore in the federal waters north of Alaska. 29 Mar 2018 Conservation group World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has warned against offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea, following BOEM's call for nominations  President Trump wants to allow devastating offshore drilling in the Arctic's Beaufort Sea – home to more than half of the U.S.'s polar bears.

In July 2015 the Obama administration has given Royal Dutch Shell PLC approval to begin with limited exploratory oil drilling off Alaska's northwest coast, in the Chukchi Sea. The permits were granted despite the nationwide protest (where people in 13 states gathered for a “ShellNo” Day of Action)

The WWF said on Wednesday that any step to open the Arctic Ocean to offshore drilling would be a huge risk to the ecological future of the Arctic itself. However, only half the basins – such as the Beaufort Sea and the West Barents Sea – have been explored. A 2008 United States Geological Survey estimates that areas north of the Arctic Circle have 90 billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil (and 44 billion barrels of natural gas liquids ) in 25 geologically defined areas thought to have potential for petroleum.
