Ann Pickard, Shell's head of international Arctic exploration and production, said some leases in the Beaufort Sea expire as early as 2017 while those in the Chukchi expire in 2020 if the company is not actively exploring or developing them.
The Obama administration has encouraged Shell to apply for extensions early, and Pickard says that there has been "a strong commitment" at the Interior Department "for us to go forward."
Shell has trained 7,000 people to work in Arctic conditions, Pickard said, though only 78 are there now. The training includes, among other things, how to get in and out of a full-body life preserver.
If Shell does find oil, that will open up entirely new questions, such as how to get it to market. Pickard said the company is studying four pipeline routes through water, ice, permafrost and wetlands to get to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, which needs new supplies to replace the dwindling volumes coming from Prudhoe Bay.
Pickard added that "one misperception is the idea that a barrel out of the Arctic has a different effect on climate change than one from the Gulf of Mexico or Middle East.

Shell hopes to take a "final investment decision in the next few months" on the company's multibillion-dollar Prelude FLNG project offshore northwestern Australia, Shell Australia Chairman Ann Pickard, told a business event in Perth.
The world's first commercial FLNG venture, Prelude will be the forerunner for further Shell projects using the technology, Pickard said.
"We are committed to build probably six of these to start with for places around the world."
After Prelude, Shell's next proposed FLNG venture is the Woodside Petroleum Ltd. (WPL.AU)-operated Sunrise venture in the Timor Sea to the north of Australia, Pickard said.
She said Shell is also looking at a "potential number three" FLNG project, but didn't provide details.
The gas and oil major is developing FLNG to process "stranded" offshore gas deposits that are too expensive and remote to develop using conventional land-based LNG plants. Australia has roughly 140 trillion cubic feet of stranded gas, Pickard said.
"This (FLNG) isn't going to be fit for all of it, but it is going to be fit for a lot of it," she said.
The company is planning a global recruitment and training regime over the next five years to provide skilled workers for Prelude, she said. "Australians should become the experts around the world in this technology," she said.

Shell's vice-president at the time, Ann Pickard, boasted to the US diplomats that her company knew "everything that was being done in those ministries".
Among other revelations, Pickard said that Shell had obtained a letter showing that the Nigerian government had invited bids for oil concessions from China. She was amused that the Nigerian minister of state for petroleum resources of the time, Odein Ajumogobia, had denied the letter had been sent, and told the US diplomats that Shell had copies of similar correspondences with China and Russia.
