Shell speeds up refinery closure

Shell has been non-committal on the future of its Geelong refinery…

SHELL has brought forward the closure of its Clyde refinery in Sydney by up to nine months, cutting about 350 jobs as tough operating conditions plaguing the shrinking sector worsen.

Shell said it would close the 90-year-old refinery on September 30, which is earlier than indicated last year when the company said Clyde would close some time before the middle of next year.

Like most Australian manufacturers, refineries are straining under the weight of a high dollar, high-skilled labour costs and expensive raw materials – in the case of refineries, crude oil. read more

Shell to close Sydney refinery

Oil company Shell will close a Sydney refinery in September, creating uncertainty for up to 275 employees and at least 100 contractors.

Thursday June 7, 2012

Oil company Shell will close a Sydney refinery in September, creating uncertainty for up to 275 employees and at least 100 contractors.

The company on Thursday informed staff at the Clyde refinery, in Sydney’s west, that operations will stop from September 30.

Staff will be supported in finding other employment, either within the terminal operations at the site, or elsewhere within Shell, the company said.

Up to 30 employees had already found other jobs, Shell said.

The decision to close down comes almost one year after Shell decided to convert the Clyde refinery into a dedicated fuel import terminal. read more

ANCHORAGE (CN) – Shell Oil sued 14 major environmental groups in Federal Court to stave off the “virtual certainty” of legal challenges to its right to harass or kill walruses and polar bears during its summertime Arctic drilling.

Shell has sued environmental groups three times since February and received two protective injunctions. It sued on Feb. 29 to try to stop 13 environmental groups from launching “last-minute legal challenges” to its Arctic drilling, and claimed Greenpeace had illegally boarded Shell’s Noble Discoverer vessel on Feb. 27 in protest. read more

SHELL CORRIB GAS PROJECT IN IRELAND ON SHAKY GROUND

EMAIL RECEIVED FROM MAURA HARRINGTON SPOKESPERSON OF “SHELL TO SEA” CAMPAIGN: SHELL CORRIB GAS PROJECT IN IRELAND ON SHAKY GROUND

Dear John,

Further interesting developments on the west coast!

This morning registered a 4.0 magnitude earthquake off Belmullet. This occurred in the general area of the Corrib Field and at a depth too close to the reservoir for any complacency.

Shell had hydrotested the offshore pipeline over the weekend and, while I’m by no means saying that Shell is the cause of the earthquake it is not unreasonable to wonder what the effect of this has on ALL their offshore Corrib installations.

Below link to Irish Times article where ‘Shell’s pet Rabbitte’ feels the need to say there is ‘no link’ with Corrib! read more
