Extract from an article by LNG INDUSTRY Written by Mike Johnson, Principal Consultant, DNV GL. Edited by Callum O’Reilly: published 9 July 2014

Floating LNG (FLNG) production plants are approximately the size of four football pitches. As these vessels are set afloat in the middle of the ocean to face nature’s wrath, and have people working in the restricted space available, it is simple to understand the mammoth undertaking, in not only their construction, but also making them seaworthy, safe and environmentally sustainable. Every single step of the design, construction and operation process is abound with risk…

Screen Shot 2014-02-21 at 16.11.57Extract from an article by Áine Ryan published in The Mayo News Tuesday 8 July 2014

THE Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) has confirmed to The Mayo News it is finalising its report about allegations by a former Shell contractor that Belmullet gardaí were given booze bribes. The allegations by services company, OSSL, have been reported in local, national and international media and were the subject of an internal inquiry by Shell and two Garda investigations.

Mr Desmond Kane, of OSSL, has claimed his company was instructed by Shell personnel to deliver a large amount of alcohol to Belmullet Garda Station before Christmas 2007. Shell has rejected the claim. However, Mr Kane says that, because of a dispute with the company, he was never paid for this delivery. He says he did get paid for earlier, smaller booze deliveries and other ‘sweeteners’ to local people. read more

Greenpeace’s most recent video targets popular toy brand Lego for its partnership with Shell. Though it begins innocently enough, panning over a Lego winter wonderland full of polar bears, wolves and icebergs, the video takes a sinister twist when a Lego version of a Shell drilling rig begins to flood the scene with oil.

Richard Beer, the Creative Director behind the film, said that although they love Lego, they hate to see the company “being used by Shell.” The final frames of the video highlight this message, saying, “Shell is polluting our kids’ imaginations. Tell Lego to end its partnership with Shell.” read more

Shell ‘short sighted’ on climate risk – study

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Extract from an article by Megan Darby published on 9 July 2014 by “Responding to Climate Change”

Shell was accused of “Orwellian doublethink” in its attitude to climate change on Wednesday, as an influential think-tank published new analysis.

In the latest instalment of the “carbon bubble” debate, the Carbon Tracker Initiative (CTI) highlighted flaws in the oil major’s optimistic assessment of its future profitability.

In a letter to shareholders in May, Shell dismissed as “alarmist” warnings that global action to mitigate climate change could destroy the value of its assets.
