Shell Gives Up Drilling For Arctic Oil This Year

Shell has announced it's giving up on its hope of drilling for oil in the Arctic this year because of problems with its oil containment barge. It's the latest in a series of setbacks to Shell's multibillion dollar gamble to make drilling in the Arctic profitable and environmentally safe. It's still hoping to try again next year.
