Shell shuts gas plant after strike

Emily GosdenThe Times

Shell has been forced to shut its troubled Prelude floating liquefied natural gas plant as workers escalate a strike over pay.

The oil and gas group was yesterday in the process of halting production at the plant off the coast of Australia after informing customers it would be unable to offload cargoes.

Shell had already been forced to reduce output from Prelude after workers at the floating plant went on strike last month.

The latest strike plans effectively prevent tankers being moored alongside the plant to offload cargoes and, with storage facilities on the plant nearing capacity, Shell was forced to shut down production. Strike action is expected to continue until July 21. read more

BP and Shell are set to unveil bumper payouts for shareholders this week as the government threatens to levy a windfall tax if the oil giants do not reinvest profits into the North Sea and clean energy projects.

JP Morgan under fire for dubious $1.3bn Nigeria oil deal

U.N. pact may restrict plastic production. Big Oil aims to stop it

By John Geddie, Valerie Volcovici and Joe Brock: Fri., February 18, 2022

It’s Namibia–a country that’s never produced a barrel of oil.

We don’t hear much about new oil discoveries these days. Onshore discoveries are almost unheard of because nearly everything except the African final frontier has been explored. Offshore discoveries are few and far between. read more

North Sea gas: Government balancing on environmental tightrope as Shell plans drilling in Jackdaw field

: Climate change correspondent

Tuesday, 11 Jan 2022

Deep in the North Sea, 150 miles directly east of Aberdeen, lies an enormous and as yet undrilled gas field called Jackdaw.

Its owner Shell has described the field as “critical” to its North Sea strategy.

In October 2021 the government’s environmental regulator for the offshore fossil fuel industry rejected Shell’s plans to drill on as-yet unspecified environmental grounds.

But Europe’s largest oil and gas group isn’t giving up, submitting revised proposals and, as a spokesperson told Sky News, continuing to “work with the regulator to explore options around developing the Jackdaw field”. read more
