Interior Secretary Ken Salazar calls Shell's (RDS.A, RDS.B) series of Alaska problems "troubling" and raises questions about the resumption of Arctic drilling later this year. Salazar, who yesterday ordered a 60-day assessment of Shell’s drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas, says potential damage to the Kulluk rig after it ran aground may force further delays in Arctic exploration.
