What I think is interesting is that this field is technically challenging. Out of one side of the government's mouth they want XOM to "hurry up". Out of the other side companies like BP who did just that had catastrophic results.

I also wonder who within the government dragged their feet to keep XOM's efforts to extend the lease on time and why.
