Shell Blog comment on article “Shell International Upstream to Power Growth…”

I suggest that we from now on start every speech or statement of Brinded with “Once upon a time, long ago…..”

SHELL BLOG COMMENT BY Guest1 on the article Shell International Upstream to Power Growth….

Adding 600,000 bopd sounds a lot but will not be sufficient to bring back the production level from 3 to 3.5 mln bopd. The reason is very simple: the current production declines by 10-15% per annum, so in 2012 the existing fields will produce (optimistically speaking, we are all followers of Brinded) not more than 2.4 mln bopd. Adding 600,000 therefore merely keeps the production level constant. We all know that Brinded is so smart he thinks he can defeat laws of nature. But oilfields are very stubborn and may not do what Brinded wants them to do… So, he better starts adding a lot more bopd if he wants to reach his earlier stated goal of 5-6 mln bopd in 2013. Time is running out fast. read more

Shell International Upstream To Power Growth

INVESTOPEDIA

Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS.A, RDS.B) will utilize its large portfolio of international upstream projects to grow production, reaching 3.5 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOE/D) by 2012. This 11% production growth will be powered by the startup of large projects in its international portfolio, including ones in Qatar and the Canadian oil sands.

These and other international projects initiated by Royal Dutch Shell will add about 600,000 BOE/D to its production base over the next three to four years. read more

Only hours after President Obama opened up vast tracts of America’s coastline to exploration, Royal Dutch Shell said yesterday that it plans to start drilling for oil in the Arctic Sea, north of Alaska, within weeks.

Marvin Odum, the chief executive of Shell’s North America business, said that Shell was “absolutely ready to drill in terms of infrastructure and manpower” in Alaska and signalled that activity could begin within ten weeks. read more
