Shell Alaska has invested more than $60 million on science since 2006 – and we have more programs planned. Those studies build on the 5,000 independent scientific studies that have taken place in the Arctic during the last several decades – at a cost of more than $500 million. Shell has spent more on Arctic science in the last five years than all federal agencies combined.
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.
