Report summary

Shell announced 28 September 2015 that it will not pursue further exploration at the Burger field in the US Chukchi Sea. The company indicated that the Burger J well was successfully drilled to a total depth of 2 070 metres (6 800 feet) and encountered oil and gas but the results were not sufficient to justify further exploration. This announcement ends a nine year exploration programme that Shell pursued with a 100% working interest. As a result of Shell's move we do not expect any high impact exploration in the US Arctic for the foreseeable future.
