Listen: Like Hoth plus politics: Lease sales for US Arctic oil drilling frozen

There are no Ewoks in this third installment, but Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang complete their trilogy on US offshore oil and gas policy by examining the cancellation of future US Arctic lease sales.

Randall Luthi, president of the National Ocean Industries Association, talks about how the Obama administration's announcement that it was cancelling Arctic lease sales may be more motivated by politics than a lack of interest from the oil industry. Additionally, Luthi considers whether Shell's Arctic operations may have been doomed to fail due to regulatory hurdles from the administration. Cue up the podcast on your favorite astromech droid to hear this week's episode.
