Shell joins in new US, Canada Arctic study

I'm curious about the wording of this sentence. Most of the  quotes in the article are pretty science-neutral, but this one states "we're going to drill whatever we find out." This disappoints (but does not surprise) me.

Supermajor Shell is joining a host of governmental bodies for an Arctic study in part aimed at aiding future oil and gas developments in an area between the US and Canada.
