Science comprises a major part of the Arctic picture for Shell. We broadly study the ecosystem – from physical oceanography to plankton to the organisms that live in the water and mud. We’re doing this in an integrated manner so we can better understand the broader story, as well as begin to identify trends and anomalies.

The National Petroleum Council (NPC) released a 2015 study on responsible development in the U.S. Arctic. The study – co-authored by a diverse group of government regulators, Alaska Native representatives, scientists, industry members and NGOs – focuses on prudent development, technology and operations, and the ecological and human environment.
