Shell claims to have learned from its mistakes. Not quite.
Have you heard about when Shell tried to drill in the Arctic three years ago?
Shell’s fleet entered the Arctic for exploratory drilling in the summer of 2012 with two rigs, the Kulluk and Noble Discoverer, both owned by Noble Drilling. Challenges started early for the Noble Discoverer — in early July the rig might have ran aground during a storm, but the Coast Guard cleared the ship to move on.
