Earlier this year, Alaska’s eccentric tax environment forced us to temporarily defloat our 28,000 ton rig near the island of Kodiak, endangering our plan to develop the Arctic’s rich oil belt in 2013. It’s not the first time onerous regulations have given us trouble-- and surely it won’t be the last! --but with your help, we can get the “Classic” Kulluk repaired and ready to once again conquer the frozen North.
Some regulators and environmentalists are letting emotions stand in the way of America’s energy destiny, but we refuse to be victimized. By donating to Shell’s #RepairingFreedom campaign, individuals who truly believe in our Arctic mission can help bring the Kulluk back to her former glory.
The future can’t wait.
For as much as it costs to chlorinate your pool, you can help us achieve our ambition of leveraging Arctic ice melt for extraordinary shareholder benefit.
Alongside our partners at Smit salvage, we’ve created an innovative sponsorship program which allows you to inscribe your family’s name on one of America’s most important energy projects. We’re calling it the Shell Legacy Seal®, and we believe it’s a first for our industry. Each #RepairingFreedom hero will become a named “sponsor” of improvements to the damaged Kulluk, and see his family name thoughtfully etched onto upgrade stock like specialized 2’’ Hex bolts, emergency generator shielding and state-of-the-art liferaft technology.
Use the custom tweets below to show the world which part of the new and improved Kulluk you’d like to sponsor to help our classic rig make energy history in 2013.
