Manila Standard Today: Shell’s case stays with tax court

By Rey E. Requejo
Monday 30 July 2007

The Court of Appeals has affirmed its decision allowing the Court of Tax Appeals to resolve the petition filed by Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp. contesting the Bureau of Customs’ demand for payment of P936.8 million in custom duties for the importation of crude oil in 1996.

In a four-page resolution, the CA’s former First Division through Associate Justice Arcangelita Romilla-Lontok denied with finality the appeal for reconsideration filed by Customs seeking to reverse its Feb. 15, 2007 decision upholding the Jan. 17, 2003 resolution of the Court of Tax Appeals. In that resolution, the tax appeals court rejected a motion to dismiss the petition filed by Pilipinas Shell to declare the assessment null and void. read more

Shell to Sea: MESSAGE TO SUPPORTERS

29 July 2007

Dear friends,

Our efforts to expose and prevent the devastation of our community, heritage and environment continues. Everyday we join together and face intimidation, slander, mis-information and violence.

Our community now faces renewed jailings and jail threats from politically driven legal judgements on key members of our ongoing campaign. The spin-masters are now trying to shut down the solidarity camp, which has stood bravely with us during 2 hard years.

Ruling politicians continue to peddle the ‘all development is progress’ mantra and try to keep nformation and the right to protest at bay whilst Shell and Norway (via Statoil) get set to boom from Irish gas. read more

Baltimore Sun: Who’s ahead: the winners of the war in Iraq. In rough order, they are Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell…

July 29, 2007

It’s not too soon to declare the winners of the war in Iraq. In rough order, they are Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell, Hugo Chavez and Vladimir V. Putin.

When U.S. troops invaded Iraq in 2003, a barrel of crude oil sold for $27. On Friday, it was at $77. It makes all the difference.

Is the war entirely responsible for the high prices? Of course not. But the run up to what are now near-record prices began just weeks after the U.S. invasion, helped along, somewhat, by the decline in Iraq’s production. Jitters in the greater Middle East play a role, too, reflected in a market war premium and the reluctance of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to lower prices by increasing production. read more

The Observer: Moscow targets British firms in wake of Litvinenko affair

Sunday July 29, 2007

British Energy companies in Russia are coming under more intensive scrutiny from Moscow in the aftermath of the Litvinenko affair.

The Russian ministry of national resources has accused JKX Oil and Gas and Dana Petroleum of exaggerating their own reserves by claiming they have deposits in other Russian-owned fields. The deputy chief of the federal natural resources use supervision service (Rosprirodnadzor), Oleg Mitvol, said Dana attracted their attention when it said ‘it had reserves that belong to [Russian oil firm] Lukoil’. read more

In the darkest depths of the Arctic Ocean a new Cold War is brewing. American and British nuclear submarines lurk in the shadows, preparing for company.

‘Why has Britain been sending submarines into Arctic waters?’ asked Rob Huebert, associate director of the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies in Calgary. ‘Because it wants to retain its capability to deal with the Russian threat.’ read more

Sunday Telegraph: Savvy investors are picking up blue chips

By Iain Dey, Sunday Telegraph
Last Updated: 2:17am BST 29/07/2007

The moment many feared and predicted finally came on Thursday, when shares took their biggest tumble since the dark days of 2003. In this series of articles, we look at what the wider knock-on effects are and find it’s not all bad news.

BUYING OPPORTUNITIES

While the FTSE was falling through the floor last week, a number of savvy investors were picking up large stakes in British companies at knock-down prices. Collapsing share prices were not a sign of impending doom for everyone in the market, but a buying opportunity. read more

The Sunday Times: A bad time to go green

July 29, 2007
John Stepek

IT HAS been a hectic week in world stock markets. I’ve found it hard to tear my eyes from the car crash that is the American housing market, and the increasing likelihood that we’re going to see a big private-equity deal collapse any minute now.

Even so, one of the most telling quotes this week wasn’t in the financial press at all. It appeared in a nice fluffy interview with supermodel Laura Bailey, one of the many faces of Marks & Spencer. Talking about her favourite fashions, she said: “Today it is easier to be cool and green than cool and not green.” read more

Economic obstacles hindering the multi billion dollar deal with Iran

Sat, 28 Jul 2007 22:48:31
Sources: Reuters, SHANA 

The Royal Dutch Shell multinational oil company says the delay in reaching a deal with Iran is due to economic issues rather than political developments.

“Economic obstacles are hindering the multi-billion dollar gas project,” Shana news agency cited Reuters quoting the CEO of Royal Dutch Shell, Jeroen van der Veer, as saying in a press conference.

Shell has been attempting to reach an agreement with Iran to carry out its first LNG project, to be fed by the giant South Pars gas field, in the energy-rich southern region of the country. read more
