WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 (UPI) — Environmental organizations urged the Obama administration not to allow oil giant Shell to begin planned exploratory drilling in arctic seas off Alaska this summer.

After a series of delays, Shell was to begin its long-planned drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas during the brief ice-free period this summer. But the company’s window for drilling is narrowing, as it faces a Sept. 24 deadline when it must cease operations in hydrocarbon-bearing zones in the Chukchi and by Oct. 31 in the Beaufort. read more

HOUSTON — The Royal Dutch/Shell Group of Companies has agreed to pay $90 million to settle a lawsuit brought by U.S. employees after it revealed it had inflated its oil and natural gas reserve numbers.

On Jan. 9, 2004, when Shell admitted to overstating its reserves by 20 percent, the stock sank. Shell Transport and Trade dropped 7 percent that day. Royal Dutch Petroleum dropped 8 percent.

After several more revisions that year, Shell ultimately admitted to overstating oil and gas reserves by more than 40 percent. read more

CALGARY — Shell Canada Ltd. now expects the next phase of expansion at its Athabasca oilsands project in northern Alberta to cost about $7.3 billion.

That is nearly twice the estimated price released last fall.

Shell said yesterday its first major expansion at the Athabasca project, still targeting a 100,000-barrel-daily production boost, would now include “over-building” of common infrastructure to make further expansions cheaper and easier.

“The scope and scale of the expansion has been modified to include pre-building of infrastructure and utilities to support our longer-term goal of 500,000 barrels per day,” Shell spokesman Janet Annesley said. read more

iol.co.za: Peru tribes fear gas may bring extinction

Environmentalists say Shell’s contact in the 1980s wiped out half of the Yora tribe, pushing it toward extinction. Companies risk wiping out tribes with little or no contact with the outside world because pipeline workers expose them to diseases to which they have no immunity…

Malvinas, Peru – When Peru Camisea natural gas reserves arrive in Lima on Friday the economic boon they promise will come at a high price, the fear of extinction among the remote jungle tribes along the pipeline corridor.

Two decades after they were discovered, the Camisea reserves are expected to bring in about $8-billion in royalties for the government over a 40-year lifetime, generate billions of dollars in gas exports and slash Peru’s $700-million a year dependence on hydrocarbon imports. read more
