WITH four strokes of his pen, Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt has given approval to a suite of enormously expensive and controversial projects planned for Central Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef.

Shell rapidly expanding its positions in unconventional gas (tight gas, shale gas and coal-bed methane)

From pages 31 & 32 of “Royal Dutch Shell and its sustainability troubles” – Background report to the Erratum of Shell’s Annual Report 2010

The report is made on behalf of Milieudefensie (Friends of the Earth Netherlands)
Author: Albert ten Kate: May 2011.

Unconventional gas and high-volume fracking

Not only for oil, but also for gas Shell is resorting to unconventional production methods. In December 2010, Shell-CEO Peter Voser stated: “In recent years, Shell has increased investment in natural gas projects in countries like Qatar, Australia, Russia, the United States and Canada, with a special focus on tight gas, shale gas and coal-bed methane – together these are known as unconventional gas. We’re currently exploring the potential for unconventional gas outside North America in countries like China and South Africa, as well as some European countries.” The Shell-CEO proceeds: “I know by 2012 Shell will be producing more gas than oil, and, I know, when it comes to natural gas supplies, a revolution is under way. (…) Shell is set for strong growth in tight gas.” read more

Shell May Seek to Develop Unconventional Gas Fields in Russia

Bloomberg

By Stephen Bierman – Sep 24, 2010

Royal Dutch Shell Plc may seek to develop coal-bed methane in Siberian Russia after a meeting with regional officials.

“The Kemerovo region is Russia’s leading coal province and may be of interest for Shell given our expertise and advanced technologies in coal-bed methane,” Vera Surzhenko, a spokeswoman for Shell, said by telephone from Moscow today. “At the moment it is too early to say anything specifically.”

Russia, holder of the largest natural-gas reserves, may have as much as 87 trillion cubic meters of coal-bed methane, OAO Gazprom Chief Executive Officer Alexei Miller said in February. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at the time said this was the equivalent of two OAO Gazproms. read more

Bloomberg News
March 24, 2010, 12:53PM

Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Europe’s second-largest oil producer, said it expects to double spending on acquisitions to about $2 billion this year.
