Description

A KUOW Freedom of Information Act request revealed the severity of a maritime accident that the world's largest energy company and the U.S. government sought to downplay or avoid comment on. News outlets from Alaska to England, including the New York Times, Financial Times and Hearst Newspapers have cited the KUOW scoop in their ensuing coverage. Our story has also resulted in Congressional and Interior Department inquiries into the accident involving equipment Royal Dutch Shell planned to use in support of oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean.
