MESSAGE FOR ROYAL DUTCH SHELL FROM AN ARCTIC FOX

UNEDITED CHILLING MESSAGE FOR ROYAL DUTCH SHELL FROM A 10 YEAR OLD CITIZEN OF AURORA, COLORADO. FULL CONTACT DETAILS WERE PROVIDED.

Your Oil is Killing the Arctic Foxes!

Yea yea, its fineeeeeeee.  It’s totally ok that your killing off my species.  I’ve always wanted to know what it’s like to be extinct, NOT. Im really special, but i guess your company, Royal Dutch Shell, doesn’t realize that.

I am an Arctic Fox, a fluffy, white, small animal. I mostly eat lemmings, a small animal too, but smaller than me. I live in skulks, or packs, and i eat leftovers from polar bear’s meals when there’s not enough  lemmings i need to eat.  Or the other starving arctic foxes eat them all. I live in mostly cold places, such as the arctic tundra, Russia, Iceland, Norway, Greenland, Alaska, Canada, Scandinavia, Finland, and Sweden. read more

Royal Dutch Shell and Total are emerging as frontrunners after a three-year slump thanks to strong growth projections but Exxon Mobil, the biggest publicly traded oil company, has largely disappointed with a weaker outlook.

Shell, NNPC, Oil Companies Alone Cannot Resolve Ogoni Problem

President of MOSOP, Legborsi Pyagbara addressing Ogonis during a protest against Shell’s pipe laying in Ogoniland, August 2017.

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) says resolving the Ogoni problem will require multi-stakeholder discussions involving Shell the Nigerian government and the Ogoni people. President of MOSOP Legborsi Saro Pyagbara made this known yesterday in Boue, Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Addressing a meeting of MOSOP Kingdom Coordinators, Pyagbara who was represented by the organization’s Publicity Secretary, Fegalo Nsuke, said all parties to the conflict including Shell, the Nigerian government and the Ogoni people must meet to resolve the Ogoni conflict which has led to the death of over 4,000 persons and a generation of Ogoni leaders.

Nsuke accused the Nigerian government and Shell of deliberately encouraging conflict in Ogoniland by attempting to resume oil production without resolving the issues raised by the Ogoni people. read more

Istvan Kapitany, head of Shell’s global retail business

By Kevin Orland: 9 February 2018

(Bloomberg) — While many oil producers are stepping back from their retail operations, Royal Dutch Shell Plc is doubling down.

Shell also is ramping up spending in China, India, Indonesia and Russia, Istvan Kapitany, head of Shell’s global retail business, said in an interview in Calgary. read more

Canadian shale boom triggers quakes in Alberta town as frackers rush to drill new wells

Communities like Fox Creek, Alberta, are feeling the economic benefits of the shale boom, along with fracking-linked earthquakes.

Bloomberg News: Robert Tuttle: February 9, 2018: 12:59 PM EST

In the Western Alberta town of Fox Creek, roughnecks shuffle through hotel lobbies, freight trucks choke slushy streets and, every once in a while, tremors shake the earth.

Welcome to Canada’s biggest shale boom. Chevron Corp., Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Encana Corp., Murphy Oil Corp. and XTO Energy Inc. are among those flocking to Fox Creek to stake their claim in the oil-rich Duvernay shale formation. 

Here, the prize is condensate, an ultra-light oil that’s perfect for diluting the heavy tar-sands crude for which Alberta is known. More locally produced diluent would be a plus for Canadian companies that now depend on the U.S. — and for communities like Fox Creek that are feeling the economic benefits along with fracking-linked earthquakes. More of both may be in the offing as drillers flock in Chevron’s wake into the Duvernay region. read more

REUTERS/Sergei Karpukhin/File Photo Ayenat MersieEjigu: 8 FEB 2018 NEW YORK (Reuters) – Oil prices fell to their lowest in seven weeks on Thursday amid fears of rising global supplies after Iran announced plans to increase production and U.S. crude output hit record highs.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude CLc1, meanwhile, was down 64 cents, or 1 percent, to settle at $61.15, its lowest close since Jan. 2.

Both benchmarks fell for the fifth straight day, the longest losing streak for Brent since November 2017 and for WTI since April 2017.

Brent futures have lost as much as 15 percent since hitting a four-year high above $71 in late January. read more

Oil multinationals leave heavy years behind

Printed below is an English translation of an article published today by the Dutch Financial Times, Financieele Dagblad

Oil multinationals leave heavy years behind

Bert van Dijk • Entrepreneurship

Fossil fuel companies may be subject to fire from environmental organizations, ‘green’ shareholders, financial regulators and prosecuting climate lawyers, but financially speaking the big oil and gas multinationals are back on their feet after a number of difficult years.

That is the most important conclusion now that four of the ‘Big Five’ have published their annual results. Cost savings, higher oil prices and rising demand for oil and gas in the world led to a total of more than $ 115 billion in operating cash flow for Shell, ExxonMobil, BP and Chevron combined and more than $ 51 billion in profits last year. read more

Shell can still grow in ‘rejuvenated’ North Sea, CEO says

Shell’s boss said yesterday that the North Sea is showing signs of “rejuvenation” and can provide the oil major with more room to grow.

Written by  – 

Doubts about Shell’s commitment to the UK were raised last year when it agreed to sell a package of assets to Chrysaor. But last month the Anglo-Dutch energy giant announced its decision to invest in redeveloping the Penguins area, 150miles north-east of Shetland. The project will involve the construction of Shell’s first new manned installation in the northern North Sea in almost 30 years. Chief executive Ben van Beurden said yesterday that the Penguins decision was “important” for Shell. FULL ARTICLE read more

Extract from the ebook “John Donovan, Shell’s Nightmare” (now available on Amazon websites globally)

(BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT SHELL’S EPIC 25 YEAR FEUD WITH JOHN DONOVAN – which puts the extracts below in overall context.)

Extract below from pages 55, 56, 57 & 58 consisting of an informed damning judgement (in June 2004) on Shell management by Dr. John Huong a Shell Production Geologist. He blew the whistle internally on the reserves fraud that resulted in the forced merger of Shell Transport and Trading and Royal Dutch Petroleum, into Royal Dutch Shell Plc in 2005.

Shell ‘transformation’ doubles profits as oil recovery takes hold

Jillian Ambrose

Royal Dutch Shell has doubled its profits following the oil major’s worst financial year in over a decade as the oil market recovery takes hold. The Anglo-Dutch oil giant said the “transformation” following its 2016 mega-merger with BG Group and $30bn portfolio overhaul has reopened flows of cash back into the business as oil prices soared to over $65 a barrel last year, from under $30 a barrel at its lowest point in early 2016. Shell’s earnings on a ‘current cost of supply’ (CCS) basis, which is a standard oil industry measure, more than doubled from the previous year to reach $15.8bn (£11bn) for 2017.

Shell poised to dethrone Exxon in oil titans’ cash clash

Ron Bousso: 1 FEB 2018 LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell could usurp its largest rival Exxon Mobil as the energy sector’s biggest cash generator after higher oil and gas prices combined with an improved performance lifted its 2017 revenue.Chief Executive Ben van Beurden has made no secret of his desire to challenge the dominance of the world’s largest listed oil company after its $54 billion purchase of BG Group in 2016 catapulted Shell into second place in terms of production. The Anglo-Dutch company on Thursday reported a more than doubling of profit in 2017 to $16 billion, the highest since the start of the 2014 downturn as the effect of years of costs cuts and the integration of BG Group filtered through. “We enter 2018 with continued discipline and confidence, committed to the delivery of strong returns and cash,” van Beurden said in a statement.
