    Default Exxon Mobil applies to State Department for waver from Russian Sanctions

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I am shocked that Exxon Mobil would put profit over principal. Who could have seen this one coming?

    Golly, you don't suppose that a million, billion, trillion, gazillion, squadrillions worth of oil that Russia will be able to drill and sell, had anything to do with Russia diddling around with our election to boost Trump into the presidency, do you...?

    In blatant defiance of environmental opposition to drilling in the region, ExxonMobil began an oil exploration project in the Russian Arctic on Saturday. The move comes as the U.S. and European Union have imposed strict sanctions on Russia; however, since Exxon signed a contract to hire a rig before the sanctions were announced, the deal is able to go forward unimpeded.

    Energy makes up half of Russia’s revenue, and exploration of the Arctic represents the beginning of a crucial venture for the country. The $700 million project, conducted jointly between ExxonMobil and Russian oil producer Rosneft, is expected to continue for 70 days. The drilling will aim for Universitetskaya, a geologic formation beneath the ocean floor that is thought to contain up to 9 billion barrels of oil.

    How can you be so cynical? Hillary lost. Get over it.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

Between 1996 and 2004,exploration and production operations in the sprawling Prudhoe Bay complex resulted in an average of more than 500 reported oil spills annually...

    They haven't forgotten. They've honed their strategies to overcome objection and protest. They don't care. At all.
