Marvin Odum blathering on

FROM A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR

John,

I just read your latest blog where Marvin Odum (right) blathers on about the strategic importance of Alaska to the domestic energy production future of the US and how Royal Dutch Shell and the White House have found ‘common ground’ on this matter. Really, and to whom besides Shell is it strategically important???

And since when is the White House (or DoI or DoE) considered competent on energy policy issues. Institutionalized competence is the issue here.

The simple fact of the matter is that with proven US natural gas reserves climbing steadily (as a result of advances in drilling technology and exploration in the lower 48 states) it is these on-shore natural gas reserves of the lower 48 state that are of strategic importance to the US. And will be of increasing importance as gas reserves continue to climb. read more

On Alaska, White House and industry find common ground, for a change: Odum

On Alaska, White House and industry find common ground, for a change: Odum

Washington (Platts)–17Jun2012/1248 pm EDT/1648 GMT

Relations between the oil industry and the Obama administration may be strained in many regards, but there is agreement on at least one issue: the strategic importance of developing resources offshore Alaska, Shell Oil President Marvin Odum said in an interview aired Sunday.

While the industry has criticized the administration of slow-walking permit applications for the Gulf of Mexico in the wake of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster, Shell has been successful in getting approval for its plans to drill exploratory wells in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas. read more

Shell exec says offshore Alaska exploration a different kettle of fish

by Dermot Cole: Jun 16, 2012

Peter Voser, the CEO of Royal Dutch Shell, tells the Canadian publication MacLean’s that the company’s Alaska exploration plans  are centered on safety.

Here is the relevant exchange from Maclean’s with the Swiss-born oilman:

Q: After BP’s blowout in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, public concern about offshore activity also spiked. Your company is planning to drill this summer in Alaskan waters, and Canada is contemplating Arctic drilling. What do you say to critics who contend it’s just too dangerous in such a fragile environment? read more

Lavishing tax-free gifts on Royal Dutch Shell

Kelly: Corbett’s lavishing tax-free gifts in pursuit of potentially toxic refinery

By Chris Kelly: Published: June 17, 2012

Sinking in the polls as he continues to gut funding for education, the sick, the elderly and the poor, Gov. Tom Corbett, R-Drillers, is about to show his critics that there are some people he really does care about.

In fact, his concern for their welfare knows no limit.

Royal Dutch Shell PLC may seem an odd name for an individual, but the international energy behemoth is, indeed, a person, just like you and me. Ask Mitt Romney. Or the U.S. Supreme Court, any Wall Street gangbanker or cheerfully exploited tea party patriot eating Hamburger Helper minus the ground chuck as Rush Limbaugh earns $45 million a year explaining why it’s all the Kenyan-in-Chief’s fault. read more
