Shell Todd Oil Services wants to bring in a jack-up rig to help extend the life of the field, the largest in New Zealand, which Shell is considering selling.
 
The environmental group says Shell Todd Oil Services's application lacks details on the rig to be used and chemicals to be discharged, and should be stopped. 
 
The field is expected to be depleted within 20 years.
