Shell environmental rhetoric, vs toxic reality

Introductory flowery rhetoric in a 1958 Shell advert: Shell Guide to LIFE IN THE CORN

“In the growing and ripening stages corn and hay are a sanctuary for wild life which man does not invade.”

The advert concludes with the slogan: “You can be sure of SHELL The Key to the countryside.”

Presumably this was meant as an assurance that it was safe to trust Shell with the environment.  Ironically the use of weedkillers was mentioned in the advert. read more

A HUMAN rights report into the policing of the controversial Corrib Gas project has recommended the establishment of new policing guidelines. Specifically, the report recommends that the Department of Justice publish a guide defining methods that may be legitimately used by An Garda Síochána during protests that range from non-violent and non-compliant actions to violent actions.

The report on The Corrib Human Rights Monitoring Initiative states this guide would help ensure that gardaí ‘respect and fulfil the right to peaceful protests and exercise their legal duty and responsibility to prevent, detect and investigate crime and to safeguard the right of others to public order and security’. The guide would also clarify issues surrounding protests on private grounds and acceptable procedures for private security personnel. read more

Shell May Delay Australia’s Arrow LNG Project to 2014, CEO Says

By Bloomberg News – Nov 20, 2012 10:07 AM GMT

Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA), the world’s biggest liquefied natural gas supplier, may delay until 2014 a decision on its Arrow LNG venture that’s forecast to cost $20 billion amid rising expenses for energy projects in Australia.

“We are in preparation of a potential final investment decision of that project somewhere in the 2013/14 time frame,” Peter Voser, Shell’s chief executive officer, said at a media briefing in Beijing today.

Costs for LNG plants are surging in Australia as it moves to challenge Qatar as the world’s biggest exporter of the fuel amid rising demand in Asia. Arrow Energy Ltd., owned by Shell and PetroChina Co. (857), said in March that it planned to decide in late 2013 whether to develop the LNG export project on Queensland state’s Curtis Island. read more

Shell CFO: Confident US Government Will Approve Keystone XL Pipeline

By Selina Williams: Published November 20, 2012 by Dow Jones Newswires

Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSA) is confident the U.S. government will approve the controversial Keystone XL pipeline extension that will carry crude from western Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast, its chief financial officer Simon Henry said Tuesday.

“We remain confident the U.S. government will take a balanced view…and allow the full extension to proceed,” Mr. Henry told a Canadian energy event in London.

The re-election of President Barack Obama has revived hopes the oil pipeline will gain government approval after environmentalists were instrumental in getting the scheme blocked last year. read more

Exxon, Shell Said to Face Delay on Kashagan Output Boost

By Nariman Gizitdinov – Nov 20, 2012 9:45 AM GMT

Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) and their partners in Kazakhstan’s Kashagan oil field face a delay of at least two years on a plan to boost output 20 percent, reducing the time they have to recoup costs in the $46 billion project that’s already running eight years late, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.

Kazakhstan has told the partners to put the $5 billion step-up plan, taking output to as much as 450,000 from 370,000 barrels day, on hold until they study how the start of production next year affects the deposit, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private. read more
