The Shell top no longer plays for the Hague football club Wilhelmus

Marco Vlot 2 Dec 17:36

After more than a hundred years, Shell is moving its headquarters from The Hague to London. A shock for the city, even if only the top managers move and the rest of the staff remains in The Hague. Not everyone is confident that this will remain the case. read more

Shell can proceed with seismic survey after environmental groups lose urgent court bid

Lameez Omarjee

  • A high court has dismissed an urgent application to block Shell from proceeding with a seismic survey off the Eastern Cape coast.
  • Judge Avinash Govindjee said that he was not convinced that there is cause to fear “irreparable harm” if an urgent interdict was not granted.
  • Meanwhile communities on the Wild Coast have also filed an urgent application to block the seismic survey.

A South African high court has dismissed an urgent application to block Shell from proceeding with a seismic survey off the Eastern Cape coast.

The ruling was delivered by Judge Avinash Govindjee at the Eastern Cape Division of the Makhanda High Court on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, four environmental and human rights organisations – Greenpeace Africa, Natural Justice, the Border Deep Sea Angling Association, and the Kei Mouth Ski Boat Club – filed an urgent application to block the seismic survey, given the alleged harm it would case to the environment and marine life. read more

Shell pulls out of a U.K. oil field targeted by climate activists.

Shell pulls out of a U.K. oil field targeted by climate activists.

Dec. 2, 2021

Royal Dutch Shell said Thursday that it had decided not to invest in a British oil development off the coast of Scotland that has become a test of the government’s environmental credentials.

The field, known as Cambo, is in deep water northwest of the Shetland Islands. It is seen as a bellwether for the future of Britain’s declining but still large North Sea oil industry.

The British government is considering whether to approve the project, which environmental groups and some politicians have said should be rejected because it would produce carbon dioxide emissions responsible for climate change. read more

Activists hail North Sea oil ‘death blow’ as Shell walks away

Oil giant has pulled out of the Cambo field amid lack of support from UK and Scottish governments

By Rachel Millard; Oliver Gill and Matt Oliver 2 December 2021

A major North Sea oil project which it was claimed would help secure UK energy supplies has been plunged into crisis after Shell pulled out citing doubts about its viability, amid a lack of political support in Westminster and Holyrood.

The Cambo oil field off the Shetland Islands was set to create an estimated 1,000 jobs and produce more than 170m barrels of oil equivalent in a boost to the UK’s oil and gas industry even as it moves towards greener energy. read more

Shell pulls out of controversial Cambo project in Scotland

LONDON (AP) — Royal Dutch Shell has pulled out of a controversial oil project near Scotland’s Shetland Islands, saying the project no longer makes economic sense for the company.

Shell had a 30% stake in the Cambo project, which is opposed by environmental groups who say Britain should stop developing new oil and gas fields as part of its efforts to combat global warming. read more

Shell scraps plans to develop Cambo North Sea oilfield

LONDON, Dec 2 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) said on Thursday it had scrapped plans to develop the Cambo North Sea oilfield, which became a lightning rod for climate activists seeking to halt Britain’s development of new oil and gas resources.

Following “comprehensive screening” of the Cambo field, Shell “concluded the economic case for investment in this project is not strong enough at this time, as well as having the potential for delays,” the company said in a statement. read more

Nigerians in Oil-Rich Delta Pin Hope on U.K. Trial Against Shell

=&0=&(Bloomberg) — Dec 2, 2021

In the heart of Nigeria’s oil region, communities and their leaders see a U.K. court as their best chance to resolve a legacy of environmental damage in the area that they blame on Royal Dutch Shell Plc.

More than 40,000 residents of the crude-rich Niger Delta were permitted by the U.K. Supreme Court in February to seek compensation over pollution, allegedly caused by Shell, in a reversal of two previous rulings. The communities see this process as a guarantor of their legal rights, even if Shell were to follow through on its plans to exit some of the oilfields. A date for a trial hasn’t been set. read more

: 2 Dec 2021

Avirtual court sitting in Makhanda has heard arguments between oil giant Shell and a group of environmental and human rights organisations opposed to its plans to explore the ecologically sensitive Wild Coast for oil and gas.

HOUSTON — A national security review has delayed the sale of Royal Dutch Shell’s controlling interest in a Texas refinery to Mexico’s national oil company Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex), Shell said on Tuesday.

Shell in May disclosed a sale of its 50% interest in the 302,800 barrel-per-day (bpd) Deer Park, Texas, refinery outside Houston to partner Pemex for about $596 million.

The closing was expected as early as Wednesday. read more

    Shell faces activist outcry over planned seismic survey of South African coast

    By PAUL BURKHARDT and Laura Hurst: Bloomberg

    Royal Dutch Shell faces a growing campaign against its plans to conduct a seismic survey of potential oil and gas reservoirs off South Africa’s rugged coastline.

    The standoff is the latest example of environmental groups’ push to halt oil and gas developments before they even get going – an effort that has been buoyed by an International Energy Agency report saying no new fields can be tapped if the world wants to prevent damaging climate change. read more

    Shell to ‘blast’ South African coastline in search of oil during whale season

    Shell is set to spend the next four months searching for oil and gas along a virtually untouched South African coastline.

    The million-pound company plans to look for fossil fuels underneath the sea along the Eastern Cape’s Wild Coast – a stretch of land aptly named for its untamed wilderness and lack of major industrialisation.

    But Shell’s ships will have to conduct three-dimensional seismic surveys to do this, using underwater explosions to record ground vibrations which can indicate what natural resources lay beneath. read more
