Variety Review: The Pipe

(Docu – Ireland)

By JOHN ANDERSON

A Scannain Inbhear Teoranta presentation in association with Underground Films, Riverside Television and TG4 with the participation of the Irish Film Board. (International sales: Cinetic Media, New York.) Produced by Rachel Lysaght, Risteard O Domhnaill. Directed by Risteard O Domhnaill.

With: Pat O’Donnell, Maura Harrington, Willie Corduff, Mary Corduff.

What do people do, when the law prevents them from protecting themselves? That’s the question at the heart of “The Pipe,” a stirring, character-rich docu from Irish helmer Risteard O Domhnaill about Shell vs. Rossport, Ireland, where the oil company decided to run a gas line, and the community decided otherwise. The Irish don’t harbor a lot of affection toward things British, but those behind “The Pipe” might think fondly of BP, whose recent gulf disaster will add currency and urgency to this charismatic David-Goliath tale. Look for some theatrical gas and a secure on-air berth. read more

“If we create space for natural gas to grow, natural gas will change the world’s energy landscape for the better,” Voser said at the World Energy Congress in Montreal. read more

US oil moratorium could reduce global supply: Shell CEO

13 September 2010

(AFP) MONTREAL — Prolonging the US government’s freeze on new deepwater oil drilling in the aftermath of the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico could dent global oil supplies as early as 2015, Royal Dutch Shell said Monday.

US President Barack Obama’s order to block new deepwater drilling after a deadly explosion ripped through a BP-leased rig in April has only had a “rather small” effect on oil supply so far due to Saudi Arabia’s huge oil capacity, chief executive Peter Voser said. read more
