The deal with Shell is a coup for Gazprom at a time when many Western companies are reducing their exposure to Russia because of Western sanctions over Moscow’s actions in Ukraine.

Gazprom is building a global strategic alliance with energy major Royal Dutch Shell that will include asset swaps and allow the Russian gas giant to penetrate new markets, its chief executive told Reuters.

Gazprom, the world’s top gas producer, said on Thursday that Shell and its long-time gas buyers in Europe – Germany’s E.ON and Austria’s OMV – had agreed to build two new Nord Stream gas pipelines under the Baltic sea to Germany. read more

Shell is back in Unalaska, and trying to be a good neighbor in by not inconveniencing air travelers at the local airport. That’s why Shell has a separate boarding and security area, constructed at the local airport, to accommodate oil company passengers flying on chartered Ravn Alaska flights, according to Shell spokeswoman Megan Baldino.

The charter flights were put in place so Shell employees did not take up too many seats on the daily Alaska Airline flights operated with small Pen Air commuter planes. read more

Royal Dutch Shell has successfully used and tested emergency equipment meant to respond to a well blowout in the Arctic Ocean, US regulators said today.

Officials with the Interior Department’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement oversaw exercises, carried out on Tuesday and Wednesday in waters near Washington state.

They focused on Shell’s capping stack, designed to sit atop a damaged well and choke off flowing oil and gas. read more

The oil spill containment vessel is part of Shell’s drilling fleet. It was docked in Bellingham at the time of an accident. read more
