Gas is abundant, affordable and acceptable. It’s also the future, argues Shell chief Peter Voser

Ahead of the Government’s gas strategy, Shell chief executive Peter Voser reveals why it is the fuel of the future and how he is riding the shale revolution.

It was apt that Royal Dutch Shell chose the Royal Institution in London’s Mayfair as the venue for its briefing with investors last week.

It would not have been lost on Peter Voser, the energy giant’s chief executive, that the institution was the working home of Michael Faraday, the man who in 1831 built the first electric motor and on whose principles the whole of electric power generation is based.

The Royal Institution was launched in 1799, a time when Britain was at war with France and fear stalked the establishment. Would the rapid industrialisation of the UK be put at risk by a lack of access to continental markets? For the princely sum of 500 guineas, members could join an “institution for diffusing the knowledge and facilitating the general introduction of useful mechanical inventions”. The country needed to work out how to make more energy to feed the beast of growth. read more

Niger Delta Villagers VS Shell – Seeking Justice Abroad

By Zainab Usman, 16 November 2012:

Legal action against Shell failed in Nigerian courts. So now villagers from the Niger delta are bringing the fight to Shell in their home country of the Netherlands.

In the latest case of Nigerians seeking justice abroad for crimes within Nigeria, a group of villagers from the Niger delta has taken oil behemoth Royal Dutch Shell to court in the Netherlands over alleged environmental pollution and “corporate crimes”.

Nigeria, the leading oil producer in Africa and eighth largest in the world, has most of its oil deposits located in the wetland and mangrove region of the Niger delta. Decades of oil extraction have left much of the region’s vegetation, farmlands, fishponds and drinking water polluted, and contributed to the impoverishment of much of its local population. read more

The Sins of The Reverend Sir Philip Watts

Update by John Donovan: Last week we revealed the latest incarnation of the disgraced reserves fraudster Sir Philip Watts, formally an arms supplier and human rights abuser in Nigeria, a spaceman and a notorious Group Chairman of Royal Dutch Shell Group. Sir Phil has now turned to religion in a big way.  Unfortunately the past penchant for cover-up associated with Sir Philip continues even in his new guise. One of the articles  cited as proof of his conversion to the path of righteousness has been speedily removed from the Waltham St Lawrence & Shurlock Row Parish Website. This is the only trace which remains and if past form is any guide, it too will quickly vanish, like Shell oil and gas reserves. This time I have retained a copy. Perhaps Sir Philip will include a reference to the unmasking of his past sins in his next sermon? Confession is said to be good for the soul. read more

A drill rig involved in Shell Oil’s inaugural season of Arctic oil exploration briefly caught fire Friday morning in Dutch Harbor, an international port in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, according to the Unalaska Fire Department.

Firefighters responded to calls of a fire at the U.S. Coast Guard docks at 10:22 a.m. Friday, where a plume of black smoke was seen coming off of a vessel, according to Unalaska Fire Chief Abner Hoage. As firefighters approached the docks there was an explosion aboard the Noble Discoverer, Hoage said. read more
