Voser’s on the way out…. let’s book the losses!

Screen Shot 2013-09-30 at 08.37.38The people who will really be laughing are those who sold the US prospects to Shell over the past few years. These assets were acquired by Shell at a cost of several billion dollars right at the top of the market.

Looks like Ben van Beurden is going to be starting with a clean sheet – wholesale disposals (and huge write-offs) in Voser’s last quarter as chairman of the CMD…which of course starts tomorrow.
 
Today’s press mentions disposals of the Eagle Ford shale interests in Texas, shale prospects in Colorado and Kansas, the Chukchi sea prospects off Alaska (interests acquired at enormous cost), and onshore assets in Nigeria – essentially everything that Marvin Odum and Dave Lawrence built up over the past few years plus the Niger delta… And these are just the ones we know about.

Colorado: Shell gets OK for fracking in Spanish Peaks

July 4, 2011 by Bob Berwyn

State approves 14,000-foot-deep fracking operation without public hearing

SUMMIT COUNTY — Shell Oil & Gas has been cleared to drill deep into a unique geological formation near the Spanish Peaks, in southern Colorado, to explore new natural gas resources.

Huerfano County planning and elected officials gave the exploratory fracking project a conditional green light last week, to the dismay of many local residents who are clamoring for more upfront research and better safeguards against environmental impacts.

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission last month denied a citizen request for a public hearing because the request didn’t come from a local government entry. read more

Federal oil shale plan focus of public hearings in Colorado

By Catherine Tsai
The Associated Press: 05/05/2011

Tracy Boyd, a Shell official, was among speakers at Bureau of Land Management public meetings in Golden on efforts to review the Bush administration plan released in 2008. About 50 people attended afternoon and night sessions. read more

Oil, Water Are Volatile Mix in West

"We're picking up properties as they become available or look strategic," said Tracy Boyd, a spokesman for Royal Dutch Shell PLC. Shell does not expect to need large quantities of water for at least 15 years, he said, and by then it may have developed less water-intensive ways to extract oil, perhaps using wind power.

Carbon dioxide shale solution sought

Shell is convinced climate change is occurring and is pursuing everything from sequestration to pursuit of cleaner energy sources to address it in all of the company’s operations, Boyd said. A big part of the carbon footprint associated with oil shale development could come from the electricity needs such projects would create. Boyd said he expects Shell would use wind energy to help power its shale effort.

DEVELOPMENT: Oil shale development grabs more water

WHAT IT MEANS: Royal Dutch Shell has filed a claim on about an eighth of the spring flow in Colorado’s Yampa River. If the claim survives the expected legal challenges, Shell will use that water to extract and process shale oil. But focusing on the Yampa misses a larger point. Shell and other companies, including Chevron and EGL Resources, have been collecting water rights on the Colorado and White rivers for decades in hope of exploiting the shale deposits beneath Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. read more
