OTTAWA (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell will resume drilling off Alaska after suspending operations for two years in the wake of an accident, the special U.S. envoy to the Arctic said on Monday, but gave no details as to when.

Shell has been moving oil rigs to Alaska as it awaits the green light from U.S. authorities. It froze operations in 2013 after the grounding of a rig in Alaska prompted protests from environmental groups.

“Clearly Shell and others will resume drilling and exploration up off the North Slope of Alaska,” Admiral Robert Papp said in an interview during a visit to Canada.

Papp, noting the accident had happened in December 2012 after that year’s drilling season had ended, said the Anglo-Dutch oil major understood the importance of taking all the necessary precautions. read more

Shell Oil Company, subsidiary of multinational oil giant Royal Dutch Shell Plc (ADR) (NYSE:RDS), is conducting drilling tests in Bellingham, Washington, ahead of potential regulatory approval for drilling in the Arctic.

According to media reports, government officials in Washington are observing Shell’s oil spill response system, which is to be deployed in the Arctic. The testing comes two years after the oil company’s previous venture ended abruptly in 2012, after it failed a deployment test because of damage to its emergency containment system. The failure led to heightened concerns over environmental safety. However, the system, which was deployed on a barge, has since been certified after repairs were carried out. read more

By John Donovan

The third successive year of a pre-AGM email bombardment of Shell by its former “Mr Fixit” company in Ireland, OSSL, is fully underway.

Several emails are sent every day by OSSL, not just to top executives at Shell, such as Ben van Beurden  but to the Irish Justice Minister and Senior Irish Police Officers.

The subject is always the same.

The alcohol purchased by OSSL on behalf of Shell, which OSSL distributed to senior Irish police officers on behalf of Shell. Police officers who took delivery are named in the emails. They were also named in a taxation invoice sent to Shell by OSSL for some £30,000 worth of police alcohol.  read more

Despite largely unfavorable movement in crude oil price during the recent months, some of Europe’s biggest oil companies are finding support from trading desks as they face a prolonged slump, which has seen oil price hit six-year lows.

In the three years before the summer of 2014, crude oil price had been averaging over $100 per barrel. However, oil price have crashed 50% since then, owing to record-high US oil production levels, coupled with the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries’ reluctance to cut output. This led to a supply glut in global oil markets. read more

Plans for revolutionary Peterhead energy project revealed

Extracts

Plans for a pioneering clean energy project in the north-east have been formally tabled with Aberdeenshire Council in a major milestone for the multimillion-pound scheme.

The carbon capture and storage (CCS) development planned for Peterhead Power Station could bring hundreds of jobs to the Buchan town and would be the first of its kind in the world.

Spearheaded by giant Shell, it involves pumping tens of millions of tonnes of harmful CO2 back into depleted North Sea gas wells, 62 miles offshore. read more
