Countywide : Coast Panel Delays Offshore Oil Vote

August 12, 1993|T. CHRISTIAN MILLER

The California Coastal Commission on Wednesday postponed a vote on whether to approve a project that would nearly triple the amount of oil extracted from underwater fields off Huntington Beach.

Shell Oil Co. and Unocal are proposing to inject water into the ocean floor around two existing oil platforms to force out more oil than they now produce.

Although the project was expected to be approved, Shell raised questions late Tuesday over some permit conditions. The vote was reset for next month in San Francisco.
