Oil: A tale of two cartels

Tony Hayward, group chief executive of British Petroleum, made heads turn at the World Economic Forum in Davos, forecasting a “supply challenge” for the energy industry, which would have to increase output to 100mbd — a new peak for oil from the current capacities of 83-84 mbd. He was strongly backed by Mr Peter Voser, CEO of Royal Dutch Shell, who added to the scare stating that the industry would have to find up to $27 trillion to fund the investment in oil over the next 20 years.

Oil rig spill off Louisiana could threaten coastline

The slick has now grown to about 1,500 sq km

BBC NEWS

There are fears of an environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, as efforts to clear up an oil spill have been suspended because of bad weather.

A drilling rig leased by the oil company BP exploded and sank off the Louisiana coast last week.

Some 1,000 barrels of oil a day are leaking into the sea from the damaged well, officials say.

They say the oil leak has the potential to damage beaches, barrier islands and wetlands across the coastline.

Eleven workers are still missing and presumed to have been killed in the accident. The search for them has been called off. read more

Shell saved Hitler and the Nazi Party

How Royal Dutch Shell saved Hitler and the Nazi Party. Same motive then, as for Shell dealing with the terrorist Gaddafi, the corrupt Saudi regime and the fanatical Iranian mullahs now: access to oil. We have gathered much more evidence of Shell’s evil relationship with the Nazi.

‘Serious spill’ from sunken US oil rig

Oil leaks from a sunken drill pipe 5,000 ft beneath the ocean surface

BBC NEWS

Oil is leaking from a damaged well feeding a rig that sank off Louisiana on Thursday, in what US officials are calling “a very serious spill”.

The well is estimated to be leaking at a rate of about 1,000 barrels (42,000 gallons) of oil per day.

Although the US coastguard said on Friday that no leak was detected, the latest evidence suggests a spill. Bad weather has hampered efforts to fix it.

Eleven workers are still missing after an explosion and fire on Tuesday.

The Deepwater Horizon had been burning for 36 hours when it sank on Thursday in 5,000 ft (1,500m) of water, despite efforts to control the flames. read more

Short-termism at Royal Dutch Shell

UPDATED MONDAY 26 APRIL 2010

“In an obsessively cost conscious environment such as the one that rules in Shell at the moment all labour-intensive sectors are at risk –irrespective of their intrinsic value or their competence – or even the likely long-term demand for their products and services.”

Posting on Shell Blog by Wilt Staph on Apr 24th, 2010 at 12:14 pm

A couple of decades ago Shell had five refineries in the United Kingdom – when the sale of Stanlow is completed soon they will have none. Is this because refining is a sunset industry with no growth potential and no chance of earning returns? Not if you take note of reliable global demand forecasts it isn’t. The “US Joint Forces Command” – the top of the American armed forces pyramid – has recently said that globally a “severe energy crunch is inevitable without massive expansion of production and refining capacity”. Most other forecasters agree that the planet will need substantially more not less refining capability in the years ahead. So why has Shell retreated so dramatically from refining and what are the implications for the “new Shell” which will emerge from the radical reviews underway under Peter Voser? read more

The BP oil well in the Gulf of Mexico that suffered a catastrophic accident on Tuesday night appeared to have stopped leaking on Friday, easing fears that it could cause serious environmental damage.

The incident nevertheless ranks as one of the US offshore industry’s worst disasters. On Friday night the search was called off for the 11 workers missing from the Deepwater Horizon rig that had been working on the well.

BP’s reputation at risk after oil rig explosion

Daily Telegraph

Tony Hayward is at the centre of his first major crisis as chief executive of BP, after a drilling rig the company hired exploded in the Gulf of Mexico.

By Garry White
Published: 6:19PM BST 23 Apr 2010

The rig, called Deepwater Horizon, was owned and operated by Transocean. Eleven of the Swiss-based company’s staff are still missing.

BP has sent a flotilla of 32 ships to help to clean up the resulting oil slick. The US Coast Guard says about 200 barrels of oil were spilled and there was no oil escaping from the well the rig had tapped.

“We are determined to do everything in our power to contain this oil spill and resolve the situation as rapidly, safely and effectively as possible,” Mr Hayward said. “We have assembled and are now deploying world-class facilities, resources and expertise, and can call on more if needed.” read more

Oil firms benefit from crude prices

24 April 2010

Oil majors BP and Royal Dutch Shell are set to benefit from improving crude prices when the rivals present their first-quarter figures.

Consensus forecasts put underlying profits from BP on Tuesday at around 4.8 billion dollars (£3.1 billion) – almost double its earnings for the first quarter of 2009.

Similarly Anglo-Dutch rival Shell is likely to make gains on last year’s 3.3 billion dollars (£2.2 billion) in first quarter figures on Wednesday.

In its recent strategy update, BP said it would begin production on 42 major projects worldwide over the next five years as existing fields decline, and boost profits by taking more costs out of the business. read more

A deepwater oil platform that burned for more than a day after an explosion has sunk in the Gulf of Mexico as hopes faded of finding 11 missing workers.

The sinking of the Deepwater Horizon could release more than 1,135,600 litres of crude oil a day into the water. The environmental hazards would be greatest if the spill were to reach the Louisiana coast, about 50 miles (80km) away. read more
