The Shell Petroleum Development Company Limited, the Nigerian subsidiary of Dutch oil giant, Royal Dutch Shell, on Friday confirmed militants’ claims that a major damage was done to its oil installations in Delta State in the early hours of Friday, saying the attack had forced it to shut down crude exports indefinitely.

The statement corroborates earlier statements by the Niger Delta Avengers, a new militant group that has claimed responsibility for a series of attacks on oil installations, in renewed hostilities across the oil-rich region. read more

The Niger Delta Avengers in the early hours of Friday claimed responsibility for another catastrophic attack on an oil facility owned by Shell Petroleum Development Company (SDPC) in Delta State, saying it had issued a prior warning to the oil giant to desist from carrying out any repair activities in the area.

“At 3:00 am today @NDAvengers blow (sic) up the SPDC Forcados 48″ export line. We warned SPDC not to go ahead with repair works but they refused.”

The attack followed a series of bombings that rocked Chevron, Agip and NNPC oil and gas installations across the Niger Delta in the last few days. read more

Maggie Fick in Lagos: 2 June 2016

The Nigerian government is finally starting a long delayed clean up of the area which first brought the neglect of the country’s oil-producing communities into the global spotlight.

Millions of barrels of oil have been spilt since oil was discovered in the southerly Niger Delta region in 1956, with much of the environmental destruction occurring in an area known as Ogoniland. Over the decades there have been thousands of spills, many as the result of oil theft and sabotage, but activists say companies including Royal Dutch Shell have consistently failed to prevent or clean up spills. read more

* High costs, decommissioning hamper deals

* Shell not selling upstream assets at $48/bbl -CFO

* BP fails to sell stake in Forties pipeline -sources

LONDON, June 2 When it comes to the North Sea, there is no such thing as an easy sale, even for oil giants Royal Dutch Shell and BP.

More than any other region in the world, the North Sea has suffered greatly over the past two years as a 60 percent drop in oil prices, high operating costs, dwindling reserves and a tough tax regime has hit operators hard. read more

Oil major Shell has resumed flights with CHC in Norway almost a month after a North Sea helicopter crash which killed 13 people.

The company had suspended its operations with the helicopter operator in the wake of the accident on April 29th.

Alternative flights were carried out to its two North Sea fields using Bristow Helicopters instead.

The decision to resume CHC flights comes as the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority decided to suspend all use of the Super Puma H225 after the Accident Investigation Board Norway (AIBN) called read more

Shell continues investigation into offshore pipe mishap

Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 08.27.16“We are still completing our assessment to fully understand what happened,” said Cameron Yost, spokesperson for Shell Canada Thursday.

“It’s too early to discuss the results or what our next steps may be.”

Earlier this year, the Stena IceMAX, a ship contracted by Shell Canada, dropped a specialized pipe, called a riser, onto the ocean floor.

The riser, used to connect a drill ship to an subsea well head, is now at the bottom of 2,000 metres of water.

The incident was caused by poor weather and rough seas, Shell officials said. No drill fluid or oil was leaked. read more
