Yhey couldn't drill. The equipment they needed got there late. Too late for them to ship it up there and start drilling. There is always next year.

The decision to postpone drilling is a good one. Without having their equipment fully prepared for the conditions they face, a oil spill would be both an environmental and financial disaster for everyone.

When it's safe to drill, drill and not before.

Arctic drilling is risky and expensive, they have likely found other places to drill with less risk and cost. Part of the price for the new 'energy' glut I suspect.
