Muhammad Bello: 18 Dec 2013

The delay in the circulation of the report of the ad hoc committee on the transaction involving the federal government, Shell, Agip and Malabu Oil and Gas Limited in respect of Oil Block OPL 245 yesterday stalled its consideration.

Had the process sailed through without the problem that arose, Muhammad Abacha, son of the late former Head of State, General Sani Abacha and  Kweku Amafegha, perhaps standing in for  a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mr. Dan Etete, as well as Pecos Energy Limited, would have been beneficiaries of the committee’s work. read more

Is our federal government too close to Big Oil?

Environment Canada’s recent approval of the Jackpine oilsands mine expansion appears to prove, once and for all, that the current federal government works for corporations, not for the benefit of this country.

Environment Canada’s recent approval of the Jackpine oilsands mine expansion appears to prove, once and for all, that the current federal government works for corporations, not for the benefit of this country.

The Jackpine oilsands mine expansion is a project that would increase the current extraction of bitumen by 100,000 barrels per day, making the total extraction from that mine around 350,000 barrels per day.

Shell, who is spearheading the project, by its own environmental assessment, has declared that 185, 872 hectares of wetlands will be permanently lost or altered and that there will be 40-60 per cent loss of habitat for migratory birds and some species at risk. read more

Fracking realities

BP and Shell are globally known, many would think, not for responsible management and regulation of the oil industry but rather for huge oil pollution in the USA and Africa…

From (Prof) Andrew
Watterson

Your illuminating report on the fracking map for Scotland (18 December) highlights a number of major issues.

AMEC, the consultancy firm chosen by the UK government to assess the effects of fracking, is one that has done much work for oil companies such as BP and Shell.

BP and Shell are globally known, many would think, not for responsible management and regulation of the oil industry but rather for huge oil pollution in the USA and Africa and, in the former company, for ­lethal health and safety failures. Former BP staff are at the centre of the move to develop fracking. read more

OIL giant Shell has been accused of breaking safety rules at the St Fergus gas terminal.

The Health and Safety Executive has acted over the methods used to lift material in areas near equipment filled with gas.

It is understood inspectors feared a major accident – and that not enough was being done to protect staff and the environment if there was an incident. read more

Motiva Enterprises LLC plans to shut the fluid catalytic cracker at the Convent, Louisiana, refinery, by October 2016 because it’s unprofitable to operate, a person familiar with operations said.

The refinery’s crude units don’t produce as much feedstock, such as vacuum gasoil, as the unit can process. Motiva found it too costly to purchase additional feed, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public. A catalytic cracker upgrades vacuum gasoil into gasoline and other fuels. read more
