    Shell’s massive carbon capture facility in Canada emits far more than it captures, study says

    Sam Meredith@SMEREDITH19
    • The “Quest” plant in Alberta, Canada, owned by oil giant Shell, has previously been touted as a “thriving example” of how CCS is working to significantly reduce carbon emissions.
    • However, an investigation by watchdog group Global Witness, showed that while 5 million tons of carbon dioxide had been prevented from escaping into the atmosphere at the plant since 2015, it released a further 7.5 million tons of greenhouse gases over the same period.
    • In response, a spokesperson for Shell told CNBC via email that the analysis was “simply wrong.”

    One of the only facilities in the world that uses carbon capture and storage technology (CCS) to reduce the emissions of hydrogen production has been found to emit far more greenhouse gas emissions than it captures.

    The Quest plant in Alberta, Canada, owned by oil giant Shell and designed to capture carbon emissions from oil sands operations and safely store them underground, has previously been touted as a “thriving example” of how CCS is working to significantly reduce carbon emissions. read more

    Can’t fix their own mistakes

    I moved home and left Shell. My bill has been incorrect for 6 weeks. I explained I would not pay my final bill until it is corrected.

    I have phoned multiple times, spent hours of my personal time to proactively solve this. Despite several promises from multiple agents my bill has never been updated.

    I am now being threatened with debt collectors and damage to my credit rating. I have ran out of time and energy and am just going to pay the bill. Terrible performance and a company I will never go with again no matter the cost. read more

    Shell Officially Drops ‘Royal Dutch’ From Name After Relocation

    By Laura Hurst: 21 January 2022, 17:28 GMT

    Shell Plc has dropped “Royal Dutch” from its name, part of a major overhaul of its legal and tax structure announced in December.

    The energy giant officially changed its name on Friday, according to a statement, following earlier approvals from its shareholders and board of directors.

    Shell’s overhaul involves integrating its dual-share structure into a single line of shares and relocating its headquarters to London. The changes will only involve about a dozen executives – including Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden and Chief Financial Officer Jessica Uhl — moving to the U.K. capital. read more

    RENEWED SHELL DIVESTMENT OF ONSHORE ASSETS: NOTHING TO CHEER ABOUT

    -By Zik Gbemre

    RENEWED SHELL DIVESTMENT OF ONSHORE ASSETS: NOTHING TO CHEER ABOUT

    • Insecurity is the single challenge pushing Shell and other multinationals out of the dreadful Nigerian investment climate.
    • It’s hypocritical of the President and Governors of the Niger Delta to go about the world begging for foreign investors when those already established are exiting the country.
    • Even for a developed economy like Russia, Putin had to step in to restrain Shell’s threat to leave the disunited Soviet Union at war with breakaway nations.

    Insecurity was the biggest challenge that forced Shell to start divesting its onshore assets in the Niger-Delta, starting with stakes in Delta state in 1999.

    Due to large scale youth violence encouraged by Chief James Ibori, tribal wars, ceaseless oil theft and communal disturbances, climaxing in a deliberate attempt by Governor Ibori successor cousin, Emmanuel Uduaghan’s desperation to buy some of the key assets provided the impetus for Shell’s gradual exit from Delta. read more

    ROYAL DUTCH SHELL’s CEO Ben van Beurden today described a court ruling from The Hague ordering faster, deeper cuts to the company’s carbon emissions as a “body blow”.

    In comments likely to provoke controversy among green activists, he said: “I was listening at home as the judge gave her verdict. It felt like a body blow.
