Comments on: Shell Blog News and information on Royal Dutch Shell Plc Tue, 22 May 2018 16:03:24 +0000 hourly 1 By: Bogus Group Tue, 22 May 2018 16:03:24 +0000 Yet another appears to have failed outside the cossetted Shell and BG echelons. The chief executive of Network Rail increasingly irked shareholders and commuters alike with a legacy of delays, cancellations and general disruption to services and will now take “early retirement” from the role. However with the praises of his chairman and the Transport Secretary ringing in his ears, I’m sure another revolving door will beckon.

However, you are probably right about B v B, anyone who can pull a rabbit out of the hat after swallowing BG Group’s toxic assets and them jettisoning them like the faecal pellet from an owl deserves some credibility.

Just think about Manchester United fans having to watch Alexis Sanchez being paid over £31 million (£600,000 per week) and providing performances that do not justify such sums.

On 15th January 2018 Total took over Operatorship (22.5%) of Berbigao, Sururu and Atapu West (previously Iara West, Iara Central and Iara East respectively) Pre-Salt oil Fields in the Entorno de Iara (Block BM-S-11A) area in the Santos Basin. Shell acquired its interest (25%) in Iara through its acquisition of BG Group.

Production in Iara was expected to start in 2018 through the 150,000 barrel per day capacity P-68 FPSO in Berbigão-Sururu fields, which would have been followed by a second FPSO in 2019 in the Atapu field.

Upstream reports that first oil from Petrobras’/Total’s pre-salt Berbigao field in the Santos basin could be delayed to next year due to slower than expected integration work with the Berbigao FPSO, P-68.

This in contrast to the report from Royal Dutch Shell March 19th 2018, wherein Ben van Beurden is quoted:


‘And growth will continue in 2018 as we expect three more FPSOs to start up. We have P-67 coming on Lula North. We have P-68 in Berbigao. We have P-69 in Lula Extreme South. And altogether, that represents over 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day peak production capacity, all Shell share.’

But, no doubt, the Executive bonuses will still be paid regardless!
