Gulf-Times (QATAR): Higher gas prices, carbon concerns could cut flaring

Published: Sunday, 15 July, 2007, 02:35 AM Doha Time
 
LONDON: For decades, billions of dollars worth of natural gas have gone up in smoke, sending tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, but dwindling energy supplies and rising gas prices could start to make a difference.

Historically, producers flared gas found in association with oil if it was too difficult and too costly to bring to market.

Concerns carbon emissions are causing global warming have added urgency to international efforts to end the practice. read more

Washington-based environmental group Friends of the Earth said yesterday the investigation by the bank’s Inspection Panel will officially begin on July 15.

Sunday Telegraph: Shell out on Royal Dutch

Edited by Iain Dey, Sunday Telegraph
Last Updated: 1:26am BST 15/07/2007

Warnings that the world is running out of oil are usually met with a heavy dose of scepticism but last week’s report by the International Energy Agency, predicting a supply crunch in five years, has hit home. According to the IEA, demand is expected to rise more than 2 per cent annually but supply will not keep pace.

This imbalance helps explain why the oil price keeps rising; crude prices were trading at $71 a barrel last week. read more

Farmer Rash has a spring in his step again because of green diesel
By Jenny Davey

FARMING is in the blood for Stephen Rash. His is the fourth generation to run Hall Farm in Suffolk: 970 acres growing cereals, field beans and oilseed rape in the sleepy parish of Wortham. Rash, 51, describes himself as an eternal optimist but during the last decade it has not been easy to maintain enthusiasm as grain mountains sprouted in Europe and cereal prices plunged. Despite his working sometimes 90-hour weeks, Hall Farm barely scraped a profit. read more

The Independent on Sunday: $10bn ExxonMobil given regulator’s all-clear

Published: 15 July 2007

Controversial Russian environmental regulator Oleg Mitvol has given the all-clear to ExxonMobil over its $10bn (£5bn) Sakhalin I oil and gas project. Mr Mitvol said the results of his inspections, due out later this month, had not uncovered any major problems. This means it is less likely that the US company will be forced to dilute its 30 per cent stake or stop operating altogether. Mr Mitvol targeted Shell, which had to cede control of the larger Sakhalin II project to Gazprom. read more

With reserves running dry in non-Opec countries, rumours of a marriage could finally come true. Even a combined group, though, might struggle in its quest for more black gold. David Strahan reports

Published: 15 July 2007

BP and Shell are finally set to merge. That’s if you believe the tittle-tattle in the Square Mile.

Of course rumours that the energy giants might unite are hardly new and have been the stuff of bankers’ fevered imaginations for years. But there is now an increasingly compelling case for the two to integrate. read more
