A federal regulator will allow Shell Canada Ltd. to begin exploration drilling off Nova Scotia after it reduced the number of days it would take the company to bring in capping technology in the event of a subsea well blowout.

The company says it would have a capping stack on site within 12 to 13 days after previously saying it would take up to 21 days.

The Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Board said Tuesday it is satisfied that Shell is taking all reasonable precautions to protect safety and the environment.
