Ice Road Blocked

To quote that lady who ran for VP "It's all about jobs"

From Reuters (Yereth Rosen):

ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Nov 17 (Reuters) - The Alaska Department of Natural Resources has denied ExxonMobil Corp. a permit to build a seasonal ice road to carry equipment to an oil and gas field the state says it has seized.

Exxon wants the nearly 50-mile road to transport a rig for drilling wells this winter at Point Thomson, a languishing eastern North Slope field of vast oil and natural gas reserves. (Link)
So let's see at today's oil price and with no gas line in place - who exactly is going to step up and drill Pt. Thomson, this winter other than Exxon?
