Big Oil Can’t Resist the Chavez Charm

You'd think BP or Royal Dutch Shell, for instance, would be especially hesitant about cozying up to the strongman again. After all, BP saw one of its executives flee Russia to escape trumped up charges while having a power-sharing agreement forced on it. Shell was forced to sell its Sakhalin Island interests to Russian gas giant Gazprom. Such are the dangers of signing over your soul to the devil.

Shell’s ex-president presses on

During an appearance on CNBC early in the summer, John Hofmeister made a startling statement: "Oil isn't a free market." Soon after he said it, the show cut to a commercial and someone handed Hofmeister, who was about to retire as president of Shell Oil Co., a piece of paper. It was a message from Shell's headquarters in the Netherlands telling him he could not say that.

Have we reached the end of the road for oil?

This means that the huge profits being made by multi-nationals such as Shell or ExxonMobil may turn out to be their last hurrah. "The days of the international oil companies are coming to a glorious end," said Fatih Birol, chief economist of the International Energy Agency, last month. "Their reserves are declining and they will have difficulty accessing new ones."

American Energy Policy, Asleep at the Spigot

Consumers overseas might not like higher taxes on gasoline, but they’ve adapted, says Jeroen van der Veer, chief executive of Royal Dutch Shell, the European energy giant. “A society can work, can function and can grow even at higher fuel prices,” he says. “It’s a way of life — you get used to it.” In Mr. van der Veer’s native Holland, for example, gasoline sells for more than $10 a gallon, with $5.57 of that going to taxes.

Talks aim to avert Arctic oil rush

Commercial interest in exploiting the Arctic is hotting up. Denmark recently attracted the likes of ExxonMobil and Chevron, the two biggest US energy groups, along with several smaller players, to explore off its western coast. Alaska, meanwhile, garnered aggressive bidding by Royal Dutch Shell, Europe's biggest energy group, which earlier this year won the right to explore the remote part of the state's Arctic North Slope.

Inupiat Eskimo sue Shell to fend off danger of offshore oil

So far, neither the legal wrangling, nor the high costs of Arctic operations have daunted Shell and other top oil companies, which are eager to capitalize on soaring prices and projections of unquenchable demand for oil and gas in the coming decades. As the largest new player offshore, Shell has spent nearly $3 billion on leases in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas. Both Shell and ConocoPhillips are trying to amass federal permits that would free them to ramp up exploration this summer. Those permits would allow the "incidental harassment" of wildlife during routine industrial activities.
