Aspen Daily News: Kudos to Shell

I would like to commend Shell for their go-slow approach to oil shale development and praise their foresight in withdrawing the recent application to the Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety for the proposed oil shale test project.

Shell’s thoughtful, cautious approach to oil shale shows their dedication and commitment to environmentally responsible and economically sustainable development.

The permit application was withdrawn in an effort to allow Shell to reevaluate the project given emerging technologies and up-to-date information from ongoing research efforts. It is my opinion that this slow approach will allow Shell to move forward more efficiently with future testing and development.

Once again, kudos to Shell for doing the right thing.
