Screen Shot 2016-05-21 at 10.18.28Finally, Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE:RDS.A), Chevron and other oil and gas companies can heave a sigh of relief as the militant group, Niger Delta Avengers has agreed to consider peace talks with the Nigerian government. The group has said that it does not have new demands, as it just wants foreign oil and gas companies to leave the southern region of the Niger Delta and stop oil pollution.

The group said it wants “genuine attitude” by the government and a “conducive atmosphere” to carry out dialogue. This is definitely good news for the Nigerian economy and international energy companies which have suffered badly in the past few months. The Avengers started to attack oil infrastructure in February, when they blew up Shell’s Forcados terminal and under-water pipeline. read more

MOSCOW, June 14 (Reuters) – Russian gas giant Gazprom and oil major Shell will sign a deal on a planned Baltic liquefied natural gas (LNG) project on the sidelines of a forum in St. Petersburg later this week, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters on Tuesday.

He said the deal will be signed in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who will meet Shell’s Chief Executive Ben van Beurden at the forum.

Gazprom plans to build the plant, which may produce up to 20 million tonnes of LNG per year, by December 2021. read more

Nigeria: Shell Loses 130,000 BPD Over Facility Shutdown

Screen Shot 2016-06-14 at 16.35.33Shell confirmed to Reuters that the pipeline suffered a leak but the company has not commented on the cause.

Also a source close to the matter informed Reuters that the line could be offline for at least a week, shutting down about 130,000 barrels per day of production.

The leak comes just as Shell finished repair work on the Nembe Creek Trunk Line. The Nembe line was shutdown in early May after a leak was discovered.

The TNP transports around 180,000 barrels of crude oil per day to the Bonny Export Terminal and is part of the gas liquids evacuation infrastructure that is critical for domestic power generation and liquefied gas exports. read more

Much ado about ethane: Why Shell is interested in this gas that goes into many products

Screen Shot 2016-06-14 at 16.25.49By Anya Litvak / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: June 14, 2016

Ethane, the gas around which Royal Dutch Shell has vowed to build a multibillion-dollar petrochemical mecca in Beaver County, has never been the star of the show.

Since the beginning of Marcellus Shale development a decade ago, ethane has swung between perk and burden. The hydrocarbon is recovered along with methane — the main ingredient of commercial natural gas — and either can be left in the gas stream to boost its energy content or be separated and sold to so-called cracker plants. read more
