Shell’s alleged secret reactor

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-YJPdBHbP4

COMMENT FROM A FORMER EMPLOYEE OF SHELL OIL USA

I read your article about the so-called ‘secret reactor’ that was possibly buried at a location that is now a residential home site. I doubt that is the case, but one cannot expect Shell to tell the truth about such matters

However, the ownership, operation and disposal of civilian reactors in the UK is a highly regulated business. Therefore, appropriate UK governmental agencies should have records of any nuclear reactor owned and/or operated by Shell, including who built it, the model type, date of commissioning, its location of operation, its size, the type of fuel, and its purpose (medical research, isotope production, etc.).

There should also be records of when it was decommissioned, and when, where and how it was disposed of. It is normal practice to bury old reactors after they have been ‘scrubbed down’.  My guess is that the UK operates some sort of ‘old reactor graveyard’, where decommissioned reactors are buried, literally. read more

Shell’s retreat from Nigeria

From a Shell retiree…

Shell will be reducing activities in Nigeria and appears to be selling off below market price due to all the hassle there. John Browne leading a consortium. All in Sunday Times.

If true, this will be a major blow in the face of Shell, they give up. Precisely what you can expect from beancounters who have never worked in bad places like Nigeria… I see it as reducing value. Bunch of cowards.

And what happened to the promises of Brinded? By 2013 or 2014 he ‘hoped’ to realise 6-6.5 mln boe/d. And this ‘promise’ was as recent as 2005 or thereabouts. I would like to know where the deliverable is? read more

Browne Leads Group Bidding for Shell Nigeria Fields, Times Says

Bloomberg

BP Plc’s former Chief executive Officer John Browne is leading a group of bidders for $4 billion of Nigerian oil fields being sold by Royal Dutch Shell Plc, the Sunday Times said.

Browne’s Riverstone Management Ltd. is interested in bidding, as is KKR & Co. and Blackstone Group LP, the Times said. Another bid group includes Perenco SA, Addax & Oryx Group Ltd. and Oando Plc, the newspaper said. Any bidder will have to have a local partner to meet government requirements, it said.

Partners ENI SpA and Total SA have the right to buy Shell’s 30 percent stake in the fields, and Nigeria’s majority holding national oil company must approve any deal, the Times said. read more

By Tracey Boles

OIL giant Royal Dutch Shell will confirm its star is rising this week by reporting estimated earnings of $4.4 billion (£2.8 billion) for the third quarter, up almost 70 per cent on last year.

The earnings haul for the Anglo-Dutch company compares to $2.6 billion (£1.6 billion) in the third quarter of 2009 and has been driven by its exploration and production arm, much of it from gas revenues. read more
