Russian energy minister Alexander Novak boasted earlier today that Shell (and ExxonMobil) are expanding operations in Russia and the Russian Foreign Ministry has said energy cooperation should not be damaged by political tensions. See extracts below from a RIA Novosti article.

It was originally expected gas would flow from the Mayo field back in 2003. The project attracted strong levels of local opposition, which has delayed the scheme. “The completion of the Corrib tunnel brings us a step closer to producing first gas in 2015 and to improving security of supply for the Irish energy market,” said Shell E&P managing director Michael Crothers. read more
