ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been urged by Royal Dutch Shell PLC to revise the final air permits granted for the exploratory drilling rig project in Alaska's Chuckchi Sea. Rebecca Noblin of the Center for Biological Diversity expresses her skepticism over Shell's tactic on air standards. Shell claims that permit changes are needed due to the unattainability of the EPA requirements for its offshore drilling rig.
