A coalition of oil companies led by Chevron U.S.A. on Wednesday filed a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit against Santa Barbara County, challenging its anti-oil tanker policy. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, seeks $100,000 a day in damages retroactive to 1988 and continuing until oil can be moved from the embattled Point Arguello oil and gas project. The $2-billion-plus project is expected to produce about 80,000 barrels of oil a day at capacity.

Local officials thought the risk posed by oil shipping along the Southern California coast ended a year ago when they denied Chevron's request to move oil by tanker from the Point Arguello offshore project. Santa Barbara County supervisors and the California Coastal Commission, which upheld the supervisors' decision, wanted the oil transported to Los Angeles by overland pipeline, which they consider environmentally safer than tankers.

Atlantic Richfield filed suit Thursday to force two government agencies to permit the development of its Coal Oil Point offshore oil project or pay the oil giant $793 million in damages. The suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, which was expected, claims the State Lands Commission and Santa Barbara County illegally blocked the oil company's effort to develop longstanding leases on state lands just off the Santa Barbara coast.
