AN INTRIGUING TURN OF EVENTS IN SHELL ESPIONAGE MACHINATIONS

By John Donovan

Regular visitors will be aware of our extensive history stretching back over a decade of being the subjects of intense Royal Dutch Shell espionage activity.

Shell admitted in writing its association with an undercover agent caught red-handed at our offices using fake credentials. Shell informed us that he was not the only investigative agent on our case, but refused to reveal the nature and scope of other intelligence gathering activities.

Shell categorically denied any connection with other sinister events, including threats made against us and our key witnesses in the run up to a High Court action against Shell; burglaries at the homes of our lawyer, our main witness and our own home during the same period, when Shell related documents were examined; interviews conducted with our key witnesses and our solicitor by undercover agents pretending to be journalists for well known newspapers. read more

Shell and Gazprom talk on Japan gas

Royal Dutch Shell has cemented its partnership with Gazprom by discussing asset swaps and how to increase shipments of gas to Japan, where the Fukushima nuclear disaster has caused an energy shortage.

Shell revealed last year that it would let Gazprom share some of its projects abroad if it is allowed to help develop the third and fourth stages of the lucrative Sakhalin island in Russia. Photo: EPA

Peter Voser, Shell chief executive, flew to Moscow for meetings with Alexey Miller, the head of Gazprom, where they talked about deals related to Siberia and Asia.

“While discussing the situation on global energy markets, both sides considered the issue of increasing LNG [liquefied natural gas] supplies to Japan from the Sakhalin-2 project as the fastest way to stabilise power supply for its consumers,” a Gazprom spokesman said.

Shell revealed last year that it would let Gazprom share some of its projects abroad if it is allowed to help develop the third and fourth stages of the lucrative Sakhalin island in Russia. Deals could even take the form of asset swaps, as Gazprom seeks to increase its presence on the international stage. Sakhalin is thought to contain reserves of more than 14bn barrels of oil equivalent. read more

Shell shutdown a rational move, but it will cost jobs

LAST week Treasurer Wayne Swan rejected the concept of Singaporean control of Australia’s stock exchange, but it seems fuel supply is a different matter. Shell’s decision yesterday to close its Sydney refinery means more Australian fuels will be imported from the likes of Singapore.

It is by no means as black and white as painted above, but the contrast is worth noting as Australia moves further into a trade deficit for liquid fuels.

Resources Minister Martin Ferguson predicts the deficit will hit $30 billion in 2015, double the level two years ago. read more

MOSCOW, April 12, 2011

Russian energy giant Gazprom and Anglo-Dutch oil major Shell discussed joint projects in West Siberia and in the east of Russia, Gazprom’s participation in Shell’s undertakings in third countries and increased liquefied natural gas (LNG) deliveries to quake-hit Japan from the Sakhalin-II project, Gazprom said on Tuesday.

Gazprom head Alexei Miller and Shell CEO Peter Voser held a working meeting on Tuesday to discuss the companies’ interaction under a protocol on global strategic partnership, the Russian energy giant said in a statement. read more

Nigeria: Shell plans $101M gas pipeline project

LAGOS, Nigeria

Royal Dutch Shell PLC says it will build a $101 million gas pipeline through Nigeria’s oil-rich southern delta to help it cut down on burning gas from its operations.

Shell’s local subsidiary issued a statement Monday saying it will build a 26-mile (42-kilometer) pipeline to bring the gas to a plant for domestic use.

The gas fires, known as flaring, are caused by the burning of natural gas that is produced along with crude oil. Environmentalists describe it as one of the largest sources of greenhouse gases which cause global warming. Those living in the Niger Delta say the burning contributes to acid rain and causes respiratory illnesses. Flaring leaves their fishing villages bathed in light at all hours. read more

Shell goes with refining flow – all downhill

Illustration: Simon Letch

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

The news that Royal Dutch Shell has bitten the bullet on its oil refining plant in NSW, Clyde Refinery, should come as no surprise. The economics of refining fuel are not what they used to be.

For Shell in particular its move to pull back from this business is in keeping with a worldwide spring cleaning exercise that has resulted in it selling down its stake in Woodside Petroleum. The sale of the remainder of this 24 per cent stake is inhibited only by its ability to find an appropriate buyer and an attractive price. read more
