Beware of a man in a Shell Hat

Screen Shot 2013-03-05 at 15.42.20By John Donovan: We have published below the content of an email sent on 1 March 2013 to Shell CEO Peter Voser by a former Shell supplier in Ireland: The OSSL Company. Basically it is alleged that Shell involved the company in corruption, facilitating bribes given to third parties on Shell’s behalf, including the Irish police. This activity all related to the highly controversial Corrib Gas Project in Ireland, dogged by allegations of corruption, threats, imprisonment of protestors, and misconduct by Shell from the outset. OSSL claims that invoices were falsified at the instruction of Shell as part of the conspiracy. The email message has a typically Irish flavour…

CONTENT OF THE OSSL EMAIL TO PETER VOSER

A man in a SHELL HAT asks for a car engine …we ask why us?

The man in the SHELL HAT explains its for him …we ask who will pay and explain we don’t sell car engines …

The man in the SHELL HAT say he will pay and as a favour to him can we locate it and buy it

We think he’s wearing a SHELL HAT he must be a man of integrity or SHELL would not give him that hat.

We tell the man in the SHELL HAT your engine is here  …fine he says i will come and see you…

He arrives in our premises in person in the HAT ….now about that engine it’s not actually for me… now even although you thought it was because I told you it was read more

Shell to build LNG plants in U.S., Canada for transport fuel

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell said it would build two small-scale gas liquefaction units in Louisiana and Ontario as part of an investment plan to unlock value in the use of liquefied natural gas as a transport fuel.”These two units will form the basis of two new LNG transport corridors in the Great Lakes and Gulf Coast regions,” Shell said in a statement on Tuesday.

Shell said it was also working to use natural gas as a fuel in its own operations, which follows an investment decision in 2011 on a similar corridor in Alberta, Canada.

Shell, which has bet the most heavily of all the top oil firms on a future for cleaner-burning natural gas, said it is using its expertise to make LNG a viable fuel option for the commercial market.

In the Gulf Coast corridor, Shell plans to install the liquefaction unit at its Geismar Chemicals facility to supply LNG along the Mississippi river and intra-coastal waterway and to exploration areas offshore Gulf of Mexico and onshore Texas and Louisiana. read more

Nigerian Oil Thieves Return to Decimate Output

Screen Shot 2013-03-05 at 14.17.28 By Elisha Bala-Gbogbo on March 05, 2013

Nigeria’s oil thieves are back in action, sabotaging pipelines to rob Africa’s biggest crude producer of more than a 10th of its daily production.

In the first two months of this year alone, Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) and other oil companies have declared three force majeures, a legal clause that allows them to miss contracted deliveries due to circumstances beyond their control. The thefts threaten to outpace the worst year, 2009, at the height of the insurgency by militants in the Niger River Delta. read more

Shell weighs security in Nigeria

Published: March. 4, 2013

ABUJA, Nigeria, March 4 (UPI) — Supermajor Shell said it was calling on the Nigerian government to do more to help ensure its operations are safe from oil bandits.

Shell last year declared force majeure on Bonny Light crude, the Nigerian blend, because of “incessant crude theft and illegal bunkering” on a pipeline the Nembe Creek trunk line in southern Nigerian.

Shell Managing Director Mutiu Sunmonu was quoted by The Guardian (Nigeria) as saying his company might shut down some operations there because of ongoing pilfering. The newspaper reports Shell says saboteurs are stealing about 60,000 barrels of crude oil per day from the region. read more

SPOOKY AFFAIR INVOLVING SHELL AND THE U.S. GOVERNMENT?

At that time, following our email correspondence with a high level U.S. intelligence source, the source was authorized by U.S. Dept. of Defense government attorneys to confirm to us that an investigation directed at Shell in the USA had been initiated by the US Department of the Navy, Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). The whole strange affair may apparently still be rumbling on, perhaps towards a conclusion that will make any Shell return to the Arctic even less likely.

Screen Shot 2013-01-31 at 16.35.00

By Tom Fowler: March 5, 2013

Royal Dutch Shell PLC will build plants in Louisiana and Canada to produce liquefied natural gas as a fuel for heavy trucks and large ships, the company said Tuesday.

The LNG terminals are among the latest efforts by energy companies to create greater demand for what is now a glut of natural gas in North America.

Shell, one of the largest gas producers in the U.S., will build the facilities in Geismar, Louisiana, along the Mississippi River south of Baton Rouge, and in Sarnia, Ontario, on the southern shore of Lake Huron just east of Michigan. read more

Shell: Ormen Lange gas output reduced due to reduced power at Onshore gas plant

Screen Shot 2013-03-05 at 08.18.48

BY KJETIL MALKENES HOVLAND

OSLO — Royal Dutch Shell said that gas flows from the giant Ormen Lange field offshore Norway have been reduced following a grid failure affecting an onshore gas processing plant.

Gas flows from the Nyhamna gas processing terminal, whic processes gas from the Ormen Lange field mainly for export to the U.K., was reduced by 53 MMcm, according to Gassco. Output is expected to be reduced by 37 MMcm, it said.

The terminal on Norway’s west coast has a maximum production capacity of about 70 MMcmpd, said a Shell spokeswoman. The maximum production at Ormen Lange is equal to about 20% of the U.K.’s natural gas consumption, read more
