Alarm Bells – Shell Pearl GTL gasifiers crippled?

“Pearl’s gasifiers are crippled because of water-side corrosion on the syngas effluent cooler (SEC) tubes. The shells of all of Pearl’s SECs will have to be cut apart so the tubes can be replaced. Somebody made a massive design error.”

Dear Mr Brandjes

I am contacting you as my designated contact point with Shell at least until this weekend when you retire. 

Please see my email correspondence with Neil Gilmour, Shell VP CP Integrated Gas & Projects.

Mr. Gilmour is on leave, hence my approach to you. 

Regards

John Donovan

Dear Mr. Gilmour

As you may be aware, I operate the website royaldutchshellplc.com

A contributor has just posted the following message on our Shell Blog which, if it is true, could impact on share value. 

Pearl’s gasifiers are crippled because of water-side corrosion on the syngas effluent cooler (SEC) tubes. The shells of all of Pearl’s SECs will have to be cut apart so the tubes can be replaced. Somebody made a massive design error.

If this serious allegation is without any foundation, then I will quickly publish, unedited, any rebuttal you wish to make. 

Please reply ASAP.

Regards

John Donovan
