So now does Shell move its operations elsewhere and Seattle lose the jobs/tax revenue generated?

I'm not quite sure how the city can randomly single out a single company for extra permits and regulations.. Don't think they can do that when it comes down to the courts. Of course, all they're really looking for is to delay Shell enough to miss the drilling season. Yet Shells local contractor, Foss Maritime, insists that the current permit was sufficient to dock Shells ships. In fact, Paul Query, a spokesperson for Foss, criticized the Mayors opposition. The mayors action
raises grave concerns about his stated commitment to Seattles thriving maritime community, Queary said in a written statement. By giving a small but vocal group the ability to jeopardize the commercial relationships between our local maritime businesses and the Port of Seattle, the mayor is casting serious doubt on the future of the citys working waterfront.
I thought the Port Authority decided to tell the City to GFY? Also, the local greenies keep reporting this as a “rig” when it’s just a few tugs and an exploration ship.
