U.S. Gulf still important to Shell

HOUSTON | Mon Jun 13, 2011 5:35pm EDT

(Reuters) – The Gulf of Mexico remains a “very strategically important” area for Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDSa.L) Americas arm both in terms of exploration and the company’s consideration of buying more assets, Marvin Odum, president of Shell Oil Co, said on Monday.

We’ve been growing our business there, mostly through exploration,” Odum said at the Reuters Global Energy and Climate Summit. “If something becomes available, I guarantee we’ll be looking at it.” read more

Royal Dutch Shell issues production warning in Nigeria after sabotage on major pipeline

By Associated Press, Updated: Monday, June 13, 4:39 PM

LAGOS, Nigeria — Royal Dutch Shell PLC is warning that it can’t meet forecast production in Nigeria after sabotage on a main pipeline in the country’s southern delta.

A Shell spokesman said in a statement Monday that the company’s Nigerian subsidiary has declared “force majeure” on its Bonny Light crude shipment for June and July. The term is used when it is impossible for an oil company to cover the promised supply from the field.

Tony Okonedo said an investigation found that the damage to the Trans Niger pipeline was caused by hacksaw cuts, suggesting black-market thieves tapped into the lines. The pipeline is a major conduit through Nigeria’s oil-rich region of swamps, mangroves and creeks almost the size of South Carolina. read more

Mobilization of Irish anti-Shell anti-Corrib protesters

Extracts from an email circulated today by the Rossport Solidarity Camp in Ireland.

We invite you to a direct action training weekend on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th June.

This training weekend is a great opportunity to get more involved with the campaign. It’s open to complete beginners to try out different ways of protesting, learning your legal rights and planning a safe and effective campaign against Shell. Please try and arrive by Friday 24th June evening if possible. Accommodation and food provided, donations welcome.

Since March we have been taking continuous action against Shell’s survey work and drilling more bore holes. We have reason to believe that Shell are due to begin construction work on the pipeline as they are due to submit their Environment Management Plan late this week. If you have ever wanted to take part in the campaign then now is the time! read more

Shell Sells First Gasoil Cargo From Pearl Gas-to-Liquids Plant

By Brian Swint – Jun 13, 2011 8:56 AM GMT+0100

Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) sold the first cargo of gasoil from the Pearl gas-to-liquids plant in Qatar, advancing the project that aims to bolster production growth for Europe’s biggest oil company.

The first commercial shipment of fuel was sold from the world’s largest GTL plant today, Shell and Qatar said in an e- mailed statement, without saying who bought the cargo. Pearl will reach full capacity by the middle of 2012, when it is expected to produce 1.6 billion cubic feet of gas per day from the North Field for conversion into kerosene, gasoil, base oils, paraffin and naphtha, Shell said. read more

Pearl GTL a step into new frontiers in green energy latest!

by Peter Sibon [email protected] Posted on June 13, 2011, Monday

QATAR: As Qatar is a desert sheikdom with a notoriously high temperature that can reach as high as 45 degrees centigrade on a typical hot summer day, some 52,000 men and women scramble to their workplaces early in the morning to avoid the scorching heat to start their day.

That was a typical day during the peak period at the construction site of the world’s largest integrated Gas to Liquids (GTL) project at Pearl GTL last year. read more

Big Green lawsuits are obstacle to jobs, economic growth

By: Examiner Editorial 06/12/11 8:05 PM

Federal regulators had no sooner completed their review and approval of Royal Dutch Shell’s application to resuming drilling for oil and natural gas in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico before Big Green environmental radicals were in federal court filing suit to stop the project. David Guest, a spokesman for Earthjustice, which filed the suit along with the Sierra Club, the Gulf Restoration Network and the Florida Wildlife Federation, said the litigation was necessary because “before new deep-water Gulf drilling occurs, the government must make a realistic assessment of the risk to the Gulf’s ecosystem, its communities, and the many jobs that depend on tourism, fishing and recreation. It has utterly failed to do so here.” read more
