Shell is embroiled in a pay dispute with workers at its Pernis oil refinery in the Netherlands.

A spokesman for the FNV union told Reuters that employees were ready to close half of the on December 7 because Shell only wants to give them a raise of 1%.

A Shell spokeswoman was cited as saying: “The unions indicated that they intend to continue activities [as early as next Wednesday]. Should this be the case, they will have a financial consequence. We are confident that we are going to reach a solution.” read more

Riser crumpled to ocean floor eight months ago during drilling for exploratory oil well

A new report commissioned by Shell Canada shows it would be safer and easier for the company to abandon a multi-million-dollar two-kilometre pipe at the bottom of the ocean, instead of retrieving it.

The huge pipe — called a “riser” — crumpled to the sea floor eight months ago off Nova Scotia’s coast.

“To make investments in clean energy technologies more attractive, governments must set an effective price on CO2 emissions”

There will be more people on this planet, more people will be living in cities, and more people will be seeking a better life. “A better life” in this context does not mean a tv in every room or a new smartphone every year. It does mean adequate housing, healthcare, sanitation, and modern transport. read more

Royal Dutch Shell plans to link part of its executive bonuses to greenhouse gas emissions and conduct more active screening of future investments to further efforts to reduce the energy group’s carbon footprint, its CEO told Reuters.

The new initiative by the Anglo-Dutch group comes in response to mounting pressure from investors to adapt to an expected flattening in oil consumption within as little as five years and international plans to phase out fossil fuels by the end of the century to combat global warming. read more
