Shell Exploration & Production Company has announced that the Minerals Management Service has awarded Shell Offshore Inc. 84 leases in the Beaufort Sea, offshore Alaska. Shell bid on the leases in the March 2005 Outer Continental Shelf Lease Sale 195.
Shell’s renewed activity in Alaska has been applauded by many stakeholders, including Gov. Frank Murkowski. “I welcome Shell back to Alaska,” said Murkowski. “Shell's interest again demonstrates Alaska’s competitiveness in a global business environment. My administration is working hard to ensure that Alaska is an attractive place to do business. With numerous oil prospects and a gasline on the horizon, Alaska will continue to contribute to the nation’s energy supply and energy security for decades to come.”
To help support its new Alaska business, Shell has opened an office in Anchorage, located in The Frontier Building, at 3601 C Street. Tom Homza, a long-time Alaska geologist, will serve as Shell's Office Manager. In addition, Edna Beuhler, a long-time Alaska resident, will serve as the Anchorage Office Coordinator. Shell’s primary US Exploration team will remain based in Houston.
