Dutch communities rattled by earthquakes are upending Europe’s energy market.

Towns in the northern province of Groningen sit atop the continent’s biggest gas field, where the Dutch government says exploration by oil and gas majors Royal Dutch Shell and ExxonMobil has triggered 196 earthquakes since 2013, damaging buildings and making home sales difficult.

Lawmakers, seeking support in provincial elections next week, have responded to residents’ complaints with a proposed cut in gas production – the second since December – in the hope that less output means fewer tremors. read more

A Port pledge? Shell’s Arctic fleet out in 2 years, no more lightning leases

With a $5.8 billion investment, Shell is determined to return to Alaska’s Chukchi Sea this summer.

The Seattle Port Commission is seeking a passage to calmer waters after facing protest and song over its lease of Terminal 5 to provide a staging area for Royal Dutch Shell’s Arctic oil drilling fleet.

Canadian Firm Welcomes Nigerian High Court Decision on Shell Oil Block

A Canadian firm and member of Crestar Consortium that won the bid for Shell’s Oil Mining Lease (OML) 25, James Bay Resources Limited, has welcomed the decision of a Federal High Court restraining the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) from acquiring the 45 per cent interest of Shell, Total and Agip in the disputed oil block.

James Bay is a part-owner of Crestar Integrated Natural Resources Limited, which was the winning bidder in May 2014 for the Shell’s 45 per cent participating interest in OML 25, and had deposited 100 per cent of the purchase consideration into an escrow account with JP Morgan in London. read more
