ShellNews.net: HSE email regarding Bill Campbell and the Brent Fatal Accident Inquiry: 6 Aug 2006

By Alfred Donovan

An interested party who we will not identity recently drew to the attention of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), documents published on ShellNews.net regarding Bill Campbell, the former Group Auditor of Shell International.  The documents in question related to the Shell Brent scandal and the associated Fatal Accident Inquiry. 

A number of individuals, who have expert knowledge of the issues involved, including Bill Campbell, may be surprised at the content of the self-explanatory emailed reply.  It would seem that Shell is not the only party operating in an environment of extreme denial (to paraphrase the words of Bill Campbell in relation to his former employer). read more

thestar.com: THE PRIZE: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power

THE PRIZE

By Daniel Yergin
Publisher: Simon & Schuster, 928 pages
(ISBN: 0-671-79932-0)

Review by KAM RASLAN

OIL is the dominating commodity of our age. In 1900 oil was only used for lighting and for the handful of cars owned by the rich. 

Today it’s impossible to imagine our lives without oil: wars are fought to control it, economies survive on it and you can’t go to the shops without oil.
 
Daniel Yergin’s brilliant Pulitzer Prize winner, The Prize, charts the history of oil: the first gushers in Pennsylvania in the 1860s, Standard Oil’s monopoly, two world wars, global cloak-and-dagger prospecting, and the coups and plots that are its saddest impact.  read more

DAILY BREEZE: Shell to expand Carson facility, let city use land

By Gene Maddaus

Shell Oil unveiled plans this week to expand its Carson tank farm and other facilities, while offering the city much-needed land for a new maintenance yard.

Shell holds 446 acres at the center of Carson, south of Del Amo Boulevard and west of Wilmington Avenue. More than a third of that land is taken up by large, white cylindrical fuel storage tanks — which some neighbors argue pose a threat to air quality.

A dismantled refinery, which was shut down in the 1990s, occupies a quarter of the land. read more

By Richard Orange
06 August 2006
 
ROYAL Dutch Shell has entered talks with Indian gas giant Gail to sell up to a quarter of its troubled Hazira Liquefied Natural Gas terminal, in Gujarat, western India. The move is designed to break the deadlock between the two companies over Shell’s access to Gail’s pipeline system.

Gail is expected to pay Shell around $150m (E117m, £79m) for the stake in the terminal, which cost Shell $600m to build.

An Indian-based banker said: “The deal will take a few months. Gail will first have to do the due diligence and then make a formal offer.” read more
