By Will Kennedy – May 15, 2012 4:47 PM GMT+0100

Cove Energy Plc (COV), the U.K. explorer that’s agreed to be bought by Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA), reported a new gas find off Mozambique, increasing the size of its discoveries in the east African nation by as much as 66 percent.

The Golfinho exploration well, drilled by partner Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (APC), found 7 trillion to 20 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas, according to a statement today. The discovery was separate to the existing Prosperidade find, which holds as much as 30 trillion cubic feet. In total, the Rovuma Area 1 block where Anadarko and Cove are exploring may hold more than five times the U.K.’s existing gas reserves. read more

Shell Arctic oil spill sniffer dogs: is this a late April Fools joke?

Trained sniffer dogs at work…

COMMENT BY A FORMER EMPLOYEE OF SHELL OIL COMPANY

John,

I read your latest blog regarding the proposed use of dogs by Shell to sniff-out oil spills in the Arctic.

A Dachshund and Two Border Collies Play Role in Shell’s Arctic Drilling Plans

Title: A Dachshund and Two Border Collies Play Role in Shell’s Arctic Drilling Plans

Royal Dutch Shell is all set to drill exploratory wells in Arctic waters this summer after receiving approval by the federal government back in February. Shell intends to start drilling off the Northwest coast of Alaska in as early as June. In order to prepare for the possibility of dealing with oil spills, Shell has added three new employees that can apparently detect spills in the Arctic. Amazingly enough, these employees have been a bargain for Shell. The new employees include border collies Jippi and Blues, and Dachshund Tara. These are the cutest and cuddliest workers Shell has ever employed. read more
