The Department of Environmental Affairs has issued an environmental authorisation for Shell South Africa Upstream B V’s proposed exploration drilling in the Orange Basin Deep Water Licence Area, off South Africa’s west coast.

This gives Shell permission to drill up to two offshore exploration wells in the northern portion of the licence area, which covers about 37 290km². Successful exploration of gas will be a major step towards the diversification of South Africa’s energy mix. read more

Almost 40 security staff at the Corrib Gas Terminal in north Mayo have begun industrial action in a dispute over payments and terms of employment.

The personnel involved in the one-day stoppage at the Bellanaboy facility are all members of SIPTU.

Those taking part in the dispute are employed by the Senaca Group, a security services firm, which is contracted by Shell E&P Ireland to safeguard its operations in Co Mayo. 

SIPTU has said the workers are taking the action after a number of contracts were terminated and working hours were unilaterally reduced in recent weeks. read more

SBM Offshore has been awarded the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for three large scale turret mooring systems associated with the proposed Browse floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) development in Australia.

The turrets are expected to be designed similar to and slightly larger in size than the Shell Prelude FLNG turret that SBM Offshore was awarded in 2011, and whose last module was recently successfully delivered from the construction yard in Dubai. Integration with the Prelude facility in Korea is currently ongoing. read more

US Follows Royal Dutch Shell plc Backs Away From Arctic Drilling

The US Interior Department announced on Friday that it will cancel the auction of 2016 and 2017 natural gas and offshore oil leases in the Arctic Ocean. The auction was scheduled under the Department’s current five-year Chukchi Sea leasing program for 2012–2017. The division cited low crude oil prices and lack of interest from oil companies as the main reason behind its decision.

This news comes a few weeks after Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE:RDS.A) withdrew its Arctic drilling plan. The oil giant had spent $7 billion for the Arctic campaign. It said last month that it has dropped its exploration and production (E&P) activities in the Burger prospect of the Chukchi Sea, as it found few traces of oil and natural gas in the region. The company was not satisfied with the drilling results; it had initially expected huge amount of oil traces in the Ocean. Shell has dropped all future plans of Arctic drilling for the foreseeable future. read more

A father-of-two claims he was refused more than £10-worth of fuel at a Shell petrol station in Sidcup after staff ‘thought he wasn’t going to pay.’

Daniel Tredget, 24, from Sidcup, was filling up his Vauxhall Zafira with petrol at the Shell Blendon garage in Blackfen Road when he claims the pump was suddenly switched off.

The Park Mead resident was driving back from the cinema just after 10pm on September 22 and wanted to fill up £70-worth of fuel but was reportedly thwarted at £9.10 by an employee. read more
