Labour unions are angry at the alleged inhumane treatment of colleagues by three oil companies.

Oil workers in Nigeria yesterday, July 3, 2013, ended a three-day warning strike over alleged poor working conditions for Nigerian staff in Agip, Chevron and Shell oil companies and the non-implementation of a collective bargaining agreement with petroleum tanker drivers, Thisday newspaper reported.

An emergency meeting on Monday, July 1, 2013 between the Federal government, the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and three oil companies, ended in deadlock. NUPENG had earlier on Monday directed all its members at the depots of the concerned oil companies to stop loading petroleum products for three days to protest their treatment by management. The strike was also called to protest the refusal by the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) to implement the signed collective bargaining agreement with petroleum tanker drivers. read more

HOUSTON — A drilling hunch with its roots in the Jurassic period is paying off for Royal Dutch Shell, with a potential 100 million-barrel oil find adding to its bounty in the Gulf of Mexico.

Shell said Wednesday that its Vicksburg exploratory well encountered an estimated 500 feet of net oil pay. The well is 5 miles from the company’s Appomattox site, where Shell already has found 500 million barrels of potentially recoverable resources.

“This is a Jurassic-age reservoir that is more than 160 million years old that was deposited as desert dunes and now is sitting beneath the floor of the Gulf of Mexico,” said Mark Shuster, executive vice president of Shell Upstream Americas Exploration. read more

Questor share tip: The 10pc fall in Royal Dutch Shell is unwarranted

Royal Dutch Shell falls are overdone. Questor says buy

Royal Dutch Shell ‘B’
£21.55-28½p
Questor says BUY

A significant oil discovery in the Gulf of Mexico failed to boost shares in Royal Dutch Shell yesterday. Europe’s largest oil major by market value has seen its shares slide by almost 10pc since the start of May, as concerns about global growth mounted. So, now looks like a good time to buy one of the UK’s largest income payers.

Yesterday, Shell said that an exploratory well at Vicksburg in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico revealed potentially recoverable resources of more than 100m barrels of oil equivalent (boe). The find adds to more than 500m boe of potentially recoverable resources that have already been identified at a nearby discovery called Appomattox. read more
