SHELL TO SEA SUPPORTER BECOMES PRESIDENT OF IRELAND

SHELL TO SEA SUPPORTER MICHAEL D. HIGGINS (RIGHT) BECOMES PRESIDENT AS  CAMPAIGN MARKS ANNIVERSARY OF GARDA BATON CHARGE AT SHELL’S REFINERY SITE

10 November 2011

— Michael D. Higgins: ‘The people of Erris deserve protection from any company that seeks to trample over their rights. No company should be outside the law’ —

As Shell to Sea supporter Michael D. Higgins prepares to be sworn in as President of Ireland tomorrow (Friday Nov 11th), hundreds of campaigners will gather in north Mayo to mark the fifth anniversary of the infamous Garda baton charge at Shell’s refinery site.

In February 2010, Michael D Higgins said of the Corrib project: “Agencies of the State got involved on the side of the developer, rather than on the side of the community. Given that alternative models were available in other countries, it was scandalous that we proceeded as we did.” [1] read more

Two major energy companies have combined forces to bolster the case to build the UK’s first carbon-capture project at Peterhead power station near Aberdeen.

The power company SSE and Shell, the fuel producer, announced their alliance after the collapse of £1bn proposals to fit carbon-capture and storage (CCS) plant to Longannet coal-fired power station, one of Europe’s largest coal-powered stations, last month.

Ministers have insisted they are still committed to funding a pilot project but the collapse of the ScottishPower scheme at Longannet has damaged confidence that the UK will build carbon-capture plant. read more

* Rights group says 2008 Delta spills poisoned rivers, farmland

* Shell says clean up operation hampered by sabotage, theft

* U.N. report in August proposed $1 billion Ogoniland clean up

By Tim Cocks

LAGOS, Nov 10 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell’s failure to mop up two oil spills in the Niger Delta has caused huge suffering to locals whose fisheries and farmland were poisoned, and it must pay $1 billion to start cleaning up the region, Amnesty International said on Thursday.

A spokesman for Shell said the company had already acknowledged the two oil spills and started cleaning up, adding that oil theft was responsible for most spills in the Delta. read more

Oil drilling returns to Gulf of Mexico

John Moylan goes behind the scenes at Perdido to see how Shell’s operation works

9 November 2011

It’s a one-and-a-half-hour flight by helicopter to the loneliest platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

Perdido lies 200 miles (322km) south of the coast of Texas. It’s just nine miles from the edge of US territorial waters.

The huge structure floats in more than 8,000ft (2,438m) of water, making it the deepest deep water drilling and production platform anywhere in the world.

It collects oil from wells at depths of more than 9,000ft. read more

Shell steps up involvement in UK carbon capture

LONDON | Wed Nov 9, 2011 11:13am EST

(Reuters) – Oil and gas major Shell stepped up its involvement in carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology on Wednesday by formalizing its partnership with Britain’s SSE to install CCS technology at one of the utility’s Scottish gas-fired power plants.

The two companies signed a joint development agreement for the Peterhead CCS project on Wednesday, three weeks after the British government scrapped plans to fund a CCS project at Scottish Power’s Longannet coal-fired plant. read more

Shell must pay $1 bn for Niger Delta clean-up: rights groups

10 Nov, 2011, 02.35AM IST, AFP

LONDON: Oil giant Shell should commit $1 billion (700,000 euros) as a first step to clean up the Niger Delta following two devastating oil spills in 2008, rights groups said Thursday.

Shell has accepted responsibility for the spills in the southern Nigerian state of Ogoniland that affected the Bodo fishing community and has agreed to pay compensation, which is currently being decided in the British courts.

But Amnesty International and the Centre for Environment, Human Rights and Development (CEHRD) accused Shell in a report of failing to act quickly enough to fix the damage and demanded the Anglo-Dutch group make the billion-dollar contribution. read more
