WASHINGTON — Shortly before Thanksgiving in 2010, the leaders of the commission President Obama had appointed to investigate the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico sat down in the Oval Office to brief him.

After listening to their findings about the BP accident and the safety of deepwater drilling, the president abruptly changed the subject. read more

What Is It Going to Take to Stop Shell’s Arctic Drilling?

Posted 04/20/2012

I’ve got one question for President Obama: What is it going to take for you to put a stop to Shell’s plans for Arctic Ocean drilling this summer? The reasons not to drill just keep mounting — and the reasons to drill? Well, there seems to be just one, and I can’t say it in politically correct company. I can give you a hint: Republican rhetoric and the 2012 presidential election.

Just yesterday, the National Oil Spill Commission that you appointed after the Deepwater Horizon disaster came out with a report card that noted that in the Arctic, there remain “many unanswered questions and much work to be done.” Specifically, this group of esteemed experts raised concerns about the fact that there remains no proven method to clean up an oil spill in the Arctic’s extreme conditions. read more

Canadian Exposure Critical to Growth at Chevron and Royal Dutch Shell

NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwire -01/09/12)- The oil and gas sector is set to play a big political role this election year as President Obama must decide whether or not to approve the controversial Keystone Pipeline which would send tar sands crude from Alberta to Texas. Originally, the Obama administration announced that it would delay a final decision in order to complete additional environmental studies. However Republicans in Congress are seeking to force Obama’s hand as the pipeline has become a cause for Republican presidential candidates.

Royal Dutch Shell biggest winner in Obama’s Lackluster Oil Plan

Obama’s Lackluster Oil Plan

Christopher Helman, 03.31.10, 07:26 PM EDT

In Texas parlance, it’s a classic case of all hat, no cattle.

HOUSTON — Royal Dutch Shell appears to be the biggest winner in Wednesday’s much-heralded but underwhelming announcement by President Barack Obama about opening up new offshore areas of the U.S. to oil and gas drilling.

Finally, after three years of wrangling, Royal Dutch Shell ( RDSA news people ) will be allowed to drill test wells in Alaska’s Chukchi Sea. But while the president giveth, he also taketh away. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said on a conference call Wednesday that the government would cancel another set of leases in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas pending further environmental study. The administration banned altogether any future drilling in Alaska’s Bristol Bay. read more

Oil Companies Loath to Follow Obama’s Green Lead

Royal Dutch Shell said last month that it would freeze its research and investments in wind, solar and hydrogen power, and focus its alternative energy efforts on biofuels. The company had already sold much of its solar business and pulled out of a project last year to build the largest offshore wind farm, near London.
