Sakhalin-2 message of doom from Simon and Lucio the Wolf: exactly as received

July 1st, 2007 10:43

Now, at last, the realest truth is coming out. Bring back Marshall Greer and his coleague Troost now. Without them, Sak Energy and the Ph II Project has lost its spine, guts, muscle and will to deliver.

As a result, the proj schedule and (US$20 billion) budget will be blown sky high for sure. Mark our words, Masters Donovans, soon the real cost and schedule of Sakhalin 2 will be revealed and all hell will break loose soon. You and Gazprom and Shell will be shocked.

We are all doomed on Sakhalin under Craig’s and Visser’s school boy ” leadership”. read more

Live Chat posting by Guest 7157: Not only is Craig a criminal and a useless uninspiring leader…

FROM LIVE CHAT

Guest 7157: Posted Friday 29 June 2007

Not only is Craig a criminal and a useless uninspiring leader but he is also a master of double standards. While he fires people in Sakhalin for not wearing a seatbelt, he and his equally useless sidekick Visser travel in in Japan in very expensive limos with no seatbelts (by their own admission!!). One set of rules for them and another set for us at the bottom of the tree. Who do they think they are??

Sunday Telegraph: Private equity poses new challenges for the scourge of ‘bullies’: shareholder activists

Last Updated: 1:03am BST 01/07/2007

David Cumming of Standard Life hates to see companies selling themselves cheap, but he says buyout firms also have a lot to offer. Richard Northedge reports

Weak managements and mean bidders have reason to fear David Cumming. Institutional fund managers are usually anonymous and dull; but the head of UK equities at Standard Life has developed a reputation for riding to the rescue of British companies in danger of being sold on the cheap.

Cumming has put his head above the parapet to back Royal Bank of Scotland’s bid for ABN Amro rather than the rival offer from Barclays, and he has told the Dutch Akzo Nobel it must increase its offer for ICI. read more

GulfNews.com: Abu Dhabi to split contract for gas fields

Reuters
Published: July 01, 2007, 00:35

Dubai: Abu Dhabi has asked oil companies to resubmit bids for a giant sour gas project in the UAE as it divides the project into two separate contracts, a magazine reported on Friday.

Companies including BP and Royal Dutch Shell said in April they had submitted bids to develop the Shah and Bab gas fields in a contract that could have a total value of $10 billion (Dh36.7 billion).

Abu Dhabi will now ask for separate bids for the two fields as the cost and complexity of developing them together was too great, the London-based weekly Middle East Economic Digest (MEED) reported. read more

NEW YORK: The ouster of ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips from Venezuela this week highlights problems energy majors confront in finding and developing new oil projects globally amid instability and increasing resource nationalism.

Facing militants’ guns in Nigeria and the tightening Kremlin control of Russia’s vast supplies, international oil companies are having greater difficulty maintaining output while state-owned firms take greater control of some of the world’s most sought-after acreage. read more

ECONOMIST INTELLIGENCE UNIT: Syria industry: Royal Dutch/Shell signs MoU to develop gas reserves

(EIU Viewswire Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge) COUNTRY BRIEFING

The Royal Dutch/Shell Group has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Petroleum calling for the development of gas reserves. According to Shell, the two sides will now work on identifying specific projects on which to collaborate.

Shell is the largest foreign investor in Syrias oil and gas industry, although output from its main interest, fields operated by Al-Furat Petroleum Company, is declining.

Shells net oil production from Syria fell to 30,000 barrels/day (b/d) in 2006 from 36,000 b/d the previous year. Syrias total output of oil (including condensates and natural gas liquids) slipped to 417,000 b/d last year, compared with 458,000 b/d in 2005, according to the latest BP Statistical Review of World Energy. According to that review, Syria has relatively modest gas reserves of some 10 trn cu ft, with natural gas output rising only gradually over the past few years to reach 5.5bn cu metres in 2006. read more

The Sunday Times: There’s a way to become sure of Shell

July 1, 2007
Inside the City
Grant Ringshaw

THREE years ago, Royal Dutch Shell was in turmoil. The reserves-reporting scandal wiped billions off its stock market value and led to a boardroom clear-out. A mountain of lawsuits and regulatory probes threatened to engulf the company.

Yet under the leadership of Jeroen van der Veer Shell has cleaned itself up and gained a new confidence. The antiquated dual board and dual listing structure has been scrapped. Shell is a leaner and fitter machine posting record profits for a British company of $25 billion (£13 billion) last year and beating forecasts in five consecutive quarters. read more
