From “Outspoken”, a former employee of Shell Oil USA

John,

I don’t have time to prepare a full blow article for you, so I decided to drop you a note about Shell and its gas investments that will give you an idea as to why Shell is moving toward natural gas as the anchor for its business.

Attached is the link to an article on the Pearl GTL project in Qatar. Shell has an enormous investment in this project and Qatar has some of the greatest natural gas reserves in the world.

By Ben Lefebvre, Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

HOUSTON -(Dow Jones)- Saudi Arabia will be the sole supplier of crude oil to Motiva Enterprises LLC’s refinery in Texas after the facility finishes expanding its capacity to 600,000 barrels a day next year, a person familiar with the matter said Friday.

The expansion of the Port Arthur, Texas, refinery, a joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSA, RDSA.LN) and Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company Saudi Arabian Oil Co. (SOI.YY), is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2012. The boost in its intake of Saudi crude oil would coincide with Saudi Arabia’s pledge to boost its oil production despite opposition from fellow members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. read more

Tony Blair, Royal Dutch Shell and Corrupt Regimes

By John Donovan

Today The Guardian newspaper published an outspoken article by Ian Birrell about the “breathtaking hypocrisy” of Tony Blair.

It discusses his role in bringing “the maverick Muammar Gaddafi in from the cold as he brokered oil deals and oversaw prisoner transfer agreements that led to the release of the Lockerbie bomber.”

Shell drafted a letter that Tony Blair sent as UK Prime Minister to Gaddafi as part of the brokering process.

The article also covers “Blair’s appeasement of the Saudi royal family in perhaps the most disgraceful episode of his time in office, when his pressure led to the halting of the landmark BAE bribery case.” read more

Groups sue Obama administration over drilling approval

WASHINGTON | Thu Jun 9, 2011 7:14pm EDT

(Reuters) – Environmental activists are suing the Obama administration over its approval of a Royal Dutch Shell Plc plan to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico.

The suit, filed one day after Exxon Mobil Corp announced two big new oil discoveries in the Gulf, could signal a lengthy fight over the resumption of drilling near the site of last year’s BP Plc oil spill.

Oil exploration in the Gulf was halted after the spill, though drilling has gradually resumed since the administration began approving new permits in February. read more
