Royal Dutch Shell has again found itself in choppy waters, with the US Coastguard announcing its fourth probe into its Alaska drilling operation.

The US Coastguard has asked the Department of Justice to look into possible breaches of international environmental law.

Regulators have already launched an investigation into safety breaches by Shell after its Kulluk oil rig grounded off Alaska on New Year’s Eve.Shell’s £3bn operation in the region, which is suspended until next year, is unpopular with environmentalists who fear that not enough is known about how to respond to an oil spill under frozen water.
