28/06/04

LONDON (Dow Jones/AP) — Royal Dutch/Shell Group Monday reiterated a commitment to end the process of flaring off natural gas from oil projects in Nigeria by 2008.

The company said it has spent about $2 billion to date on infrastructure to collect and ship the gas which would otherwise be burned off into the atmosphere.

Shell has been under pressure from environmentalists and local residents to end gas flaring in Nigeria. Some say the process contributes to global warming. read more

Shell rigs start journeys to Arctic

By Jennifer A. Dlouhy: Updated 10:59 p.m., Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Two Shell Oil Co. drilling rigs have begun their long treks to Arctic waters, where they are expected to begin boring five exploratory oil wells later this summer.

The departure marks a final phase in Shell’s seven-year quest to drill in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas north of Alaska. Although the company is still awaiting final drilling permits to launch the work, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar told reporters on Tuesday that those approvals are probable.

Shell spokeswoman Kelly op de Weegh confirmed that the drilling rigs and support vessels have left the Seattle shipyard where they underwent hundreds of millions of dollars in renovations to prepare them for the planned drilling. read more

Two massive Shell Oil Co. drilling rigs left a Seattle dock early Wednesday, starting the long trek to Alaska’s Arctic waters and leaving behind years of legal battles and regulatory hurdles in a quest for riches under the sea.

With little drama, the Kulluk — a 29-year-old conical Arctic drilling rig that spent a dozen years mothballed in Canada — launched for Dutch Harbor, a supply stop on the way to the far north, just before 8 a.m. Seattle time. The Noble Discoverer — a 1960s-era vessel used as a log carrier before being converted for drilling — was right behind, said Curtis Smith, an Anchorage-based Shell spokesman in Seattle for the sendoff. read more

Appeals court rejects arguments against new wells

Posted on Wednesday, 06.27.12

The Associated Press

ATLANTA — A federal appeals court has rejected arguments by a coalition of environmental groups, who maintain that U.S. regulators failed to thoroughly review the potential dangers of drilling new deep wells in the Gulf of Mexico.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision supports a federal agency’s approval, allowing Shell to move ahead with plans for 10 deep-water wells.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management failed to properly analyze potential catastrophic spills and underestimated the likelihood of a spill, the environmental groups argued. read more
