Shell prepares to resume drilling in Chukchi Sea

Endeavor will provide support and advice for a third-party audit of Shell’s management systems related to Arctic operations. Endeavor worked with Shell’s Venture Team in 2013 to develop an Integrated Operations Plan, covering the full scope of operations in the Chukchi Sea, which was submitted to the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Shell Alaska has also utilized Endeavor to help them establish their development program for advisory personnel for ice management in support of their future drilling operations.

Bruce Crager, Executive Vice President of Endeavor Management, said: “Endeavor Management is very glad to be of assistance to Shell in this world class effort. Our personnel, including many who have retired from USCG, have many years of experience with Arctic operations and bring extensive expertise to bear on this project.”
