Royal Dutch Shell Plc .com website back online

By John Donovan

Apologies for the royaldutchshellplc.com website being down for over three hours today. This was due to “an event”, possibly a denial of service attack by an unknown party flooding the website with requests. Matters were not helped by confusion in our contact with technical support staff at the dedicated server hosting company in Dallas. More steps have been taken to hopefully minimize the impact of any future “events”.

Royal Dutch Shell Plc may become Europe’s largest oil and gas producer as a $100 billion spending program starts to pay off and closest rival BP Plc scales back.

This year, Shell’s Pearl gas-to-liquids and Qatargas 4 liquefied natural gas developments in the Middle East are scheduled to come on stream, following investment of about $21 billion, the latest in a line of projects from Brazil to Canada that have reversed a seven-year decline in production. At the same time, BP forecasts output will drop 11 percent this year as it sells more assets to pay for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. read more

BP’s Safety Drive Faces Rough Road

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Bob Dudley, the new chief executive of BP PLC, has vowed to change the safety culture of the accident-prone oil giant in the wake of the deadly explosion and spill at one of its wells in the Gulf of Mexico last year. But the story of a little-known BP safety official on the desolate North Slope of Alaska offers some cautions about just how difficult a job that will be.

The day after the Gulf well blew out last April, killing 11 rig workers, Phil Dziubinski was suspended from his job and escorted out of his office in Alaska. The company said he was let go as part of a broad management overhaul. In a five-month skirmish, two government agencies rejected Mr. Dziubinski’s claims that he was fired as retribution for warning of safety risks.
