In Dutch court, Shell pushes Greenpeace to stay back or pay up

September 21, 2012 | 12:36 pm

Shell has taken Greenpeace International to a Dutch court in an attempt to keep protesters at least 500 meters (1,640 feet) away from its properties — or face fines of $1.3 million or more.

The court case was triggered by the latest round of Greenpeace protests against Arctic drilling being done in the Netherlands. Pumps at scores of Shell gas stations around the country have been blocked. In some cases, bicycle locks have been used to clamp fueling nozzles together. read more

Shell gets OK to prepare 2nd drill site off Alaska

21 September 2012

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Federal officials have given Royal Dutch Shell PLC approval for limited site work in the Beaufort Sea off Alaska’s north coast.

The decision Thursday was widely expected. A Shell drill ship, the Kulluk, is positioned in the Beaufort waiting for the whaling season to end.

The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement already gave Shell approval for similar work in the Chukchi (chuk-CHEE’) Sea.

The company can’t drill into petroleum zones until its spill response barge is in place. A containment dome on the barge was damaged in tests last weekend. read more

Shell sues Greenpeace to stop Artic protests

COMMENT BY A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR

SHELL’S MADNESS…

Has anyone thought about the implications of a 500m exclusion zone around Shell property in Holland?
 
This would prevent Greenpeace members from entering a large proportion of the Hague, Rotterdam and Amsterdam, from using motorways and most major roads, or from going near any of the thousands of Shell locations which cover the country, such as refineries,  filling stations, oil and gas wells and production facilities.
 
Is Shell planning to publish a map showing the thousands of no-go areas implied?  The widely used Shell road map of Holland might provide a good starting point of the area “off limits” to Greenpeace members! read more

Federal regulators on Thursday gave Royal Dutch Shell the green light to move forward with preliminary well work in the Beaufort Sea off northeast Alaska as soon as the subsistence whaling season ends.

The company is also working to obtain support from Inupiat Eskimo whalers that could allow Shell to move its drill rig over the Sivalluq prospect in the Beaufort, 20 miles north of Point Thomson off Alaska’s northeast coast, Shell spokesman Curtis Smith said. read more

Shell wins approval for limited Beaufort drilling

By Yereth Rosen

ANCHORAGE, Alaska | Thu Sep 20, 2012 6:01pm EDT

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSa.L) on Thursday won approval for limited drilling in the Beaufort Sea off northern Alaska, allowing the British oil company to start one exploration well there while it pursues a separate prospect in the Chukchi Sea.

The U.S. Department of Interior’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement granted Shell a permit to drill to shallow depths at the Beaufort well, which follows approval three weeks ago for similar preliminary drilling in the Chukchi. read more
