Stranded natural gas reserves

FROM A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR

The world has vast volumes of what is called ‘stranded’ natural gas. This is gas that is not considered economically exploitable for a variety of reasons. As a consequence this type of gas is usually ‘flared’, i.e., burned, at the well site, although a small amout of it is utilized one way or the other at or near the well site.

However, our ability to convert that gas into LNG and diesel type fuels is rapidly beginning to make this resource economically viable to explt.  And believe it or not, there is somewhere on the order of 6000 TCF of this gas located worldwide. read more

Why can’t those geniuses at Shell think of something like this?

FROM A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR

John,

Thought you might like this article.

New Toilet Turns Human Waste Into Electricity and Fertilizer‎‏

Why can’t those geniuses at Royal Dutch Shell think of something like this ??? Maybe RD Shell needs to invest in the Loo market.

Think of all the natural gas that can be generated and recycled.

How many trillions of cubic meters of gas found in conventional geologic gas fields is an invention like this worth ???

Perhaps we are getting a peek at the future for modern sewage disposal where billions upon billions of cubic feet of natural gas are recovered from human waste daily. How much of this bio-gas does a city like London or New York or Paris, etc. produce on a daily basis ??? read more

Court To Allow Shell to Drill in Gulf of Mexico

The Eleventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday threw out a petition by Defenders of Wildlife and Gulf Restoration Network to halt Shell Oil’s latest exploration plan to drill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management had approved Shell’s plan, or “Shell EP,” to conduct drilling in ten exploratory wells between 7,100 and 7,300 feet deep off the shore of Alabama in the Central Gulf of Mexico.

The petitioners challenged the ruling, claiming that Shell EP violates the National Environmental Policy Act and the Endangered Species. The court said that NEPA’s requirements had been met, and the low probability (estimated risk of 0.07%) of an oil spill means the exploratory drilling does not violate the Endangered Species Act. read more

Welcome to the Commonwealth of Shell!

We will bear the burden of Shell tax credits

June 26, 2012

I am dumbfounded by the Post-Gazette’s Friday editorial “No Shell Game: Corbett’s Tax Break Plan Is a Good Deal for State”! You have sold out to the interests of big oil and gas along with the Corbett administration. Your initial caution flag on ethane cracker tax credits has turned into a white flag of surrender.

Royal Dutch Shell (the full name) has co-headquarters in London, United Kingdom, and in The Hague, Netherlands. It is the second-largest company in the world based upon revenues. Why are we even considering giving tax credits to such a global behemoth? It would be better that Shell pay us for the privilege of operating here. read more

Investors eye increased Shell bid for Cove

By Sarah Young

LONDON | Mon Jun 25, 2012 11:42am EDT

(Reuters) – Shareholders are betting Shell (RDSa.L) will up the stakes in a bid battle for explorer Cove Energy (COVE.L) after Thailand’s PTT Exploration and Production PTTE.BK extended the deadline for investors to accept its $1.9 billion offer.

Cove shares were up 0.3 percent to 265.5 pence at 1021 EDT on Monday, still above the 240 pence per share PTT has offered, as investors eyed a potentially higher bid from Shell.

PTT said on Monday that investors would now have until July 6 to accept its offer, after it won acceptances from only 0.25 percent of Cove shares by last Friday’s deadline. read more

Jiffy Lube still scamming customers

Jiffy Lube still scamming customers

FROM A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR

John,

Jiffy Lube is a company owned by Shell Oil here in the States. It has been hit with a class-action lawsuit in California,

Lawsuit Hits at Jiffy Lube Intervals

Thought you might like to pass the information on to your readers

Also a comment on the article: Shell lied for 10 years

Shell Oil USA in the States was lying (and in a serious way) about their reserves way back in the mid-1980’s prior to the stock buy-out by Royal Dutch. So, this fraud goes back 20 years or more in the States, not just to the mid-1990’s. I am going to presume the same holds true for all of Royal Dutch’s op-co’s and subsidiary companies. Reserve fraud at Shell Oil USA was a ‘cultural problem’ and I presume it still is because the character and quality of senior and mid-level management throughout Royal Dutch Shell has not improved by any noticeable degree. This is no surprise because current corporate leadership grew-up and prospered in that environment of ‘institutionalized’ fraud. read more
