Probably Shell has a better idea of the limitations of the structure and doesn't want to lose it (lots of $$) or incur the wrath of the public for causing avoidable damage to the environment.
<<Amazing... Shell couldn't manage moving a drilling platform because of the weather and sea conditions. How can they be trusted to manage a production platform in the Bering and Chukchi Seas under the kinds of weather and climate conditions they will face?
