COMMENT: This article is very interesting because it addresses directly an allegation I made some time ago, i.e., that Shell was abandoning oil production wells without plugging them. As such these wells represent an ongoing pollution hazard and wellhead equipment slowly corrodes away. Eventually many of these wells could begin to leak oil and gas, polluting the surrounding environment. Shell clearly has no intention of re-entering these wells and putting them back on production. The reason they were not plugged is that management didn’t want to spend the money to do so, and really didn’t give a flying **** about the future environement and health problems these wells posed for the local populace. I suspect that there are hundreds of old Shell well that have been abandoned but not plugged, and I suspect that many of these wells are now leaking both gas and oil into the surrounding environment.
