The Arctic is once again under attack from oil companies.

Over the past year we’ve seen just how reckless Arctic drilling is. Shell, one of the world’s biggest and most powerful corporations, has been leading the charge but a catalogue of screw-ups forced it to pause its drilling program in Alaska.But Shell hasn’t given up yet – far from it. Instead they’ve signed a deal with Gazprom and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has thrown open the back door and invited Shell to drill in the Russian Arctic instead, where corruption is rife and oil companies are largely unregulated. read more

BP, Shell Slammed With More Crude-Oil Price-Fixing Claims

BP, Shell and Statoil have been barraged by suits since acknowledging that they were among the companies hit in a surprise raid launched by the European Commission and the Norwegian Competition Authority in May.

TUESDAY, 02 July 2013

The controversial Shell Corrib gas project takes centre stage when the theatrical force that is Donal O’Kelly returns to the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar with his latest work, Benbo Productions’ surreal and heartfelt ‘Ailliliú Fionnuala’ tomorrow night, Wednesday, July 3.

Written and performed by O’Kelly, directed by Sorcha Fox and designed by Robert Ballagh, ‘Ailliliú Fionnuala’ centres on Ambrose Keogh, who works for Shell. When the tunnel-boring machine he named Fionnuala sinks into the bog in Erris, he is magically confronted by the legendary Fionnuala of the Children of Lir. Fionnuala puts a geas on him – he’s bound to tell the truth about Shell’s operations. During his ordeal, Ambrose meets his school classmate, Malachy Downes, a Shell-to-Sea activist, and echoes from the past resound. read more

LONDON, July 3 | Wed Jul 3, 2013 2:15am EDT

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell said it had found oil at its latest deepwater drill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Vicksburg ‘A’ discovery, 120 km offshore, was estimated to hold potentially recoverable resources of more than 100 million barrels of oil equivalent, Shell said on Wednesday.

“The results of the Vicksburg well strengthen our existing deepwater Gulf of Mexico exploration portfolio and should contribute to the nearby Appomattox discovery,” said Mark Shuster, Executive Vice President of Shell Upstream Americas Exploration.

Shell has a 75 percent stake in the discovery, and CNOOC holds the rest. read more

Shell boss blames well-financed and highly organised criminals for crude oil theft

Screen Shot 2013-07-03 at 00.29.50By John Donovan: According to an article published yesterday, the Managing Director of The Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria, Mr. Mutiu Sunmonu (right) has blamed well-financed and highly organised criminals for crude oil in the Niger Delta. What he does not say is whether the finance and organisation came from Shell, bearing in mind Shell’s track record in colluding with militant leaders. Sunmonu is said to have called for accountability and transparency in the management of oil revenue. This from a company that falsified its claimed oil and gas reserves, engaged in a related cover-up, paid multimillion dollar fines for corruption and planted spies throughout the Nigerian government.  read more
