Salazar Concerned About Shell's Arctic 'Mishaps'

Jan 10, 2013

Interior was skeptical about Shell Oil’s offshore oil drilling in the Arctic, but Secretary Ken Salazar said he would withhold judgment about the company’s recent accidents until a high-level review is completed.

“There is a troubling sense I have that so many things went wrong,” Salazar said, “And that’s what [Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Director] Tommy Beaudreau will dig into, and I’m looking forward to the results of that review.”
