COMMENTS FROM A ROYAL DUTCH SHELL RETIREE ON CURRENT NEWS STORIES
Interested in the report on this leak they are trying to stop in Athabasca…
Few people probably realise this is a nightmare and very likely unstoppable until the whole aquifer runs out of energy. Compare it with a blow-out. I think it is a major mishap but have no other info then what I read in the article.
And the oilwells in Sakhalin going to sand is a disaster of great magnitude.
With winter starting they presumably cannot re-enter the wells and try to fix it. It also shows the original design was flawed. I bet that even those atheist Russians (and the secular Shell folk as well) are praying the same will not happen on the gaswells because then they really are f*cked!
Finally, will Malcolm Brinded be attending the funeral of his friend Gaddafi, or is Shell’s focus solely on its slick switch of allegiance to the new government?
