In an April 2 filing submitted to the federal District Court in Alaska Shell said that it opposes any delay in resolving an appeal against the 2008 Chukchi Sea lease sale in which the company purchased leases.“Because the Arctic drilling season is so short, every day of it counts,” Shell told the court. Shell said that it had already lost the 2014 Chukchi Sea drilling season as a result of the appeal and that the company had begun planning for the 2015 season “in the event the agency (BSEE) re-affirms the sale.”
