LAGOS — Shell Nigeria reported a second pipeline fire in a week Friday, and said one person was believed dead after the blaze.

 

The company said the pipeline fire was in the Oguta-Egbema region of which is south eastern Nigeria.

Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), has confirmed the death of three people from its oil well fire in Afam, Oyigbo Local Government, Rivers State.

In a press statement signed by its Corporate Relations Manager, Mr Don Boham, the three were “probably illegal oil bunkerers that had dug into the Afam well-16, with intent to steal crude”.

Meanwhile, the fire was still raging as at press time, as the fire fighting crew from Shell backed by teams from French oil firm Total and the Port Harcourt Refinery deployed to the site were unable to put out the fire, Shell said.

BUENOS AIRES — A late night phone call between Argentina’s President Nestor Kirchner and Alfonso Cortina, president of oil giant Repsol YPF SA (REP), has transformed the rules of the game in the local oil sector and squeezed refiners into a lose-lose situation.

 

Late Tuesday, while producers and refiners were still working on a new version of a fuel price accord that would have seen fuel prices raised for the first time in 16 months, Kirchner asked Cortina to block the hikes, according to an industry official. read more

Drug company finds the right remedy for fat-cat headlines

The Times: Drug company finds the right remedy for fat-cat headlines
