MAKAROV, Sakhalin — Royal Dutch Shell said it had taken less than one month to sort out most of the environmental violations identified at its Sakhalin oil and gas project, but a federal investigation continues.
“We have addressed the violations very quickly, but we had to divert resources from pipeline construction,” Wayne Harris, Shell’s health and risk assurance manager at the pipeline, told reporters last week visiting a 30-kilometer section 220 kilometers north of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the region’s capital.
