Shell sees projects in Qatar help end drop in output

GULF TIMES

Sunday 5 September, 2010

Bloomberg/Amsterdam

Royal Dutch Shell, Europe’s largest oil company, is set to reverse its decline in production after projects in Qatar come on stream, Sanford C Bernstein & Co said.

“After a decade of declining production, Shell is finally entering a sweet spot for production growth,” Oswald Clint, a London-based analyst at Bernstein, said in a note to investors yesterday.

Shell also has “probably the best portfolio” of pre- final-investment-decision projects around, “and a strategy refocused on the exploration and production business, with plenty of interesting exploration options to add to reserves”. read more

Yesterday’s event in context

The explosion yesterday in the Gulf of Mexico again highlights the dangers of having an explosive gas air mixture concurrent with a source of ignition.  It seems a miracle that 13 men apparently blown into the sea survived. Ironically many such accidents happen when facilities are shutdown and vessels are opened up. read more

Salazar still not sure if Shell can drill offshore in Alaska’s Arctic

AlaskaDispatch

Jill Burke | Sep 3, 2010

Calling his visit a “whirlwind trip through Alaska,” U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar stood before reporters in Anchorage on Friday — dressed in cowboy boots, jeans with notes tucked in a back pocket, a blue collared shirt and a baseball cap  — explaining the mission of his two-day visit to Alaska this week as a chance to see key regions of the state first-hand before making decisions about oil and gas development.

Salazar held a town hall meeting in Barrow and flew over the Beaufort Sea coast for a look at current and proposed oil and gas sites. He also toured the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He held briefings with the Alyeska Pipeline Services Co. about the trans-Alaska oil pipeline, ConocoPhillips about a proposed drilling project in NPR-A, and with Shell Alaska about proposed offshore exploration projects in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas. read more

Accident Intensifies Debate on Drilling in the Gulf; All Aboard Are Rescued

By LESLIE EATON, JEFFREY BALL And STEPHEN POWER

Times-Picayune /Landov

Crew boats pump water Thursday onto the oil-and-gas production platform Vermilion 380-A, after an explosion in the Gulf of Mexico off the Louisiana coast, 93 nautical miles south of Vermilion Bay.

HOUMA, La.—The fire that engulfed an oil and gas platform Thursday in the Gulf of Mexico heightened pressure on the energy industry, which is battling greater regulation and a deep-water drilling ban.

The accident on Mariner Energy Inc.’s shallow-water platform sent 13 workers tumbling into the ocean, but there were no casualties and little or no oil appears to have been spilled. read more
