RELATED CORRESPONDENCE ON SHELL BLOG

With unreserved apologies if you HAVE gotten his support: I find it very sad that you would decide to publish old documents from Iain, a man whose integrity and dignity you praise. His career concerns, his job applications etc are not something that should be shown around for cheap amusement, and to keep alive your anti-Shell moaning.

Yes this stuff was already in the public domain, but your explanation for publishing essentially says “it was hard to find, so I’ve made it easy for everyone to gawp at it”. read more

Extracts from an article by Mary Carolan published on 11 March 2014 by The Irish Times under the headline: “Judge fast-tracks hearing of Corrib gas challenge”

Screen Shot 2013-10-15 at 15.39.36A High Court judge yesterday granted an application from Shell E&P Ireland to fast- track the hearing of the latest legal action against the Corrib project and fixed a trial date on May 20th. The approach adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to its decision-making relating to licensing the refinery was “nothing short of alarming and extraordinary”, Martin Harrington has claimed. Last October, Mr Harrington, Geesala, Ballina, Co Mayo, won, on consent of the EPA, an order quashing a different revised licence issued by the agency for the Shell gas terminal at Bellanaboy, arising from defects in relation to how the EPA carried out an environmental impact assessment concerning the terminal development. Now he has brought a judicial review challenge to the amendment to the different 2007 licence. read more

Cash All Gone

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 14.46.22

Extracts from an article by Jim Landers published on 10 March 2014 by The Dallas Morning News under the headline: “Petroleum project costs worldwide benefit Texas prospect”

The cost of developing the world’s largest oil and natural gas fields has reached heights straining the budgets of even the largest oil companies. Royal Dutch Shell, Exxon Mobil Corp., Chevron and Total are all looking to spend less than they did last year on projects that have broken the $50 billion threshold. In Kazakhstan, where several of the biggest oil companies are struggling to bring online the Kashagan oil field beneath the Caspian Sea, project cost estimates have gone as high as $187 billion, according to Offshore Technology.com. Even if the Kashagan field begins production later this year well below that peak cost estimate, it may still take decades before the partners (Exxon Mobil, Shell, Italy’s Eni, Total, KazMunaiGas, IPEX and China National Petroleum Corp.) recover their costs. read more

Shell: no certainty fracking for Karoo shale gas economically viable

Extracts from an article by Melanie Gosling published on 11 March by Independent Online under the headline: “Fracking revenue still not quantified – Shell”

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 14.07.51Cape Town – Shell says there is no certainty that fracking for shale gas in the Karoo will be economically viable. Niall Kramer, Shell’s upstream manager, told delegates at a roundtable discussion on fracking on Monday that only once the oil company had completed exploration work would it be able to assess whether fracking would be economically viable. “Many people think this gas is a done deal. That’s not the case. read more
