US not ready for debate on exporting shale gas: Shell official


Washington (Platts)–26Apr2011/533 pm EDT/2133 GMT

Shell’s president for US operations on Tuesday called talk of exporting shale gas premature, at least politically.

“We’re still waking up to the fact that we have this enormous energy resource in our backyard,” Marvin Odum said at the US Energy Information Administration’s conference in Washington. “It completely changed the way we look at energy as a country.”

“I think we finish that realization process and then have the political debate about whether exporting some of that energy is something we allow to happen or not.” read more

Shell’s favorite website

We have received the latest installment of Shell internal communications relating to this website and its owners. The information has been supplied in response to a Subject Access Request to Shell under the Data Protection Act.

As always, there is some information which Shell would not want put into the public domain.

For example, further evidence of Shell leaning on newspaper publishers in relation to this website. Our regular visitors may recall that Shell was determined to kill a half page Sunday Times article about our exploits. The headline mentioned that our intervention in Sakhalin2 had cost Shell £11 BILLION (over $17 billion USA). This time we have evidence of Shell’s intent to lean on the Financial Times because of irritation that it mentioned our website in an FT article. Shell self-evidently has no regard for freedom of the press. read more
