July 19, 2004 – 10:04PM

Petrol giant Shell is in the running to take over a critical Sydney storage facility from fuel importer Trafigura Australia, potentially forcing thousands of independent service stations to close.

Trafigura, an independent petrol wholesaler, may be forced out of its Port Botany terminal in about six weeks, with site owner Vopek refusing to renew the lease.

“We’ve been trying to try to talk to Vopek, who own the terminal, about an extension to their contract or a new contract from September this year, without success,” Trafigura managing director Barrie Jacobsen told ABC TV. read more

TAMPAKAN, Philippines — A team of Filipino and Australian miners struck gold several years ago near this drowsy village high in the mountains of the southern Philippines. Better yet, they also found so much copper that the site someday could become one of the largest copper mines in Asia.

But in January — just days after President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo approved a plan to hasten development of the country’s mining industry — Tampakan mine developer Sagittarius Mining Inc. was dealt an unexpected blow: The Supreme Court said the project was illegal because it contravened the Philippines’ constitution. read more

Hundreds of barrels of crude at a time are siphoned by members of his militia. Asked if he considers this theft, Dokubo-Asari replies that he is reclaiming for the people what belongs to them. “As far as we are concerned, it’s the Nigerian state that is stealing oil,” he said. read more
