S.Africans protest against Shell oil exploration in pristine coastal area

By 

PORT EDWARD, South Africa, Dec 5 (Reuters) – South Africans took to their beaches on Sunday to protest against plans by Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) to do seimsic oil exploration they say will threaten marine wildlife such as whales, dolphins, seals and penguins on a pristine coastal stretch.

A South African court on Friday struck down an application brought by environmentalists to stop the oil major exploring in the eastern seaboard’s Wild Coast, rejecting as unproven their argument that it would cause “irreparable harm” to the marine environment, especially migrating hump-back whales. read more read more

Shell evacuates Prelude floating LNG plant after power outage

Shell evacuates Prelude floating LNG plant after power outage

By STEPHEN STAPCZYNSKI AND MATTHEW BURGESS on 12/6/2021

(Bloomberg) –Royal Dutch Shell Plc has evacuated non-essential staff from its floating liquefied natural gas facility in northwest Australia as the operator struggled to restore power that knocked out operations earlier in the week, according to people familiar with the matter.

The delay in bringing essential power generators back online at the Prelude LNG export plant had left workers without ventilation, potable water services and a sewage treatment system, said one of the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity as they’re not authorized to speak to media. The evacuation of non-essential staff was assisted by Inpex Corp.’s helicopter and rescue vessel, the people said. read more

Shell pulling the plug on the Cambo North Sea oilfield is a problem for us, too

Oliver Shah Sunday December 05 2021, 12.01am, The Sunday Times

You can’t be sure of much when it comes to Shell these days — and Shell, it seems, can’t be sure of anything when it comes to politics. Last month, chief executive Ben van Beurden was fêted for moving the oil major’s headquarters from Holland to London as part of a simplification of its corporate structure.

On Thursday, Shell pulled out of a major oil project in a storm of recrimination, saying the economics were “not strong enough at this time” and complaining of “potential for delays”. read more

Shell’s Prelude LNG vessel shuts operations, staff evacuation underway after electrical fire

ABC KimberleyBy Madison Snow 5 Dec 2021

Key points:

  • Smoke coming from an electrical utility triggered automatic fire detection and management systems
  • A Shell spokesperson says the fire was contained and all staff are accounted for
  • Staff have continued to be evacuated from the vessel as Shell works to restore main power

The world’s largest floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) vessel has been shut down since Friday after a fire started in an electrical utility at 11pm on Thursday night.

Shell’s Prelude FLNG facility, moored 400 kilometres north of Broome on WA’s Kimberley coast, has been operating on backup power since Friday.

The facility has a staff of around 200 people and a Shell spokesperson said a “skeleton crew” remained aboard and non-essential workers were continuing to be evacuated while work was done to restore main power. read more

Virtue-signalling over oil development is hypocrisy

The Sunday Times

Virtue-signalling over oil development is hypocrisy

Michael Glackin: The Sunday Times

Three months ago, Simon Roddy, upstream director at oil major Shell, warned that the very future of the UK oil and gas industry was at stake in the row over the Cambo oil project.

Roddy insisted Shell’s investment in greener energy sources and emissions reduction on rigs relied on investors having certainty about the rules on oil and gas development.

This year, Roddy’s boss, Shell chief executive Ben Van Beurden, offered a similar defence of the scheme, arguing that the investment was needed to meet continuing demand for oil and gas. read more

Hacking attack underway on Shell Nazi History .com website

By John  Donovan

A hacking attack is apparently underway targeting my shellnazihistory.com website.

According to Jetpack Monitoring (see above)over 50,000 total blocked brute force attacks were made on the website between Nov 4, 2021 and Dec 4, 2021.

We can only speculate on who might have the motive and any prior form to take such sinister action against a non-commercial entirely free to use highly informative website?

It is true that Shell has used cloak and dagger activity against my Shell focussed websites several times, as recently as July 2021. But there is no evidence that Shell is behind the more recent attacks. read more

Cambo: Jobs warning as Shell pulls out of oil field development

Cambo: Jobs warning as Shell pulls out of oil field development

Energy companies’ reputational struggles and Whitehall’s green ambitions leave oil investment in limbo  and 4 December 2021 

It was less than a month ago that Kwasi Kwarteng was celebrating Shell’s plans to move its group headquarters out of Holland and to the UK.

The business secretary heralded the decision as “a clear vote of confidence in the British economy as we work to strengthen competitiveness, attract investment and create jobs”.

Today he may have more complex feelings towards the FTSE 100 oil giant – and greater uncertainty about the challenges ahead for the economy. read more

Cambo: Jobs warning as Shell pulls out of oil field development

3 Dec 2021

Business leaders have warned that thousands of oil and gas jobs could be at risk in the UK after Shell pulled out of the Cambo oil field development.

  • Located in the North Atlantic, about 125km (75 miles) north west of the Shetland islands.
  • Major stakeholder is Siccar Point Energy, with a 70% stake, backed by private equity firm investors.
  • Siccar Point Energy says Cambo could deliver 170 million barrels of oil over 25 years, and 53.5 billion cubic feet of gas.
  • The exploration licences dates back to 2001, but UK government must approve drilling – which could start as early as 2022.

Aberdeen’s Chamber of Commerce said a “premature” end to domestic production could see some areas suffer the fate of mining communities in the 1980s.

Environmentalists say new fossil fuel projects like Cambo are incompatible with action on climate change.

Cambo’s majority stakeholder said it still planned to take it forward. read more

Shell pulls out of controversial Cambo project in Scotland

The Washington Post Shell pulls out of controversial Cambo project in Scotland By Danica Kirka | AP: 3 Dec 2021 at 10:26 a.m. EST

LONDON — Royal Dutch Shell has pulled out of a controversial plan to develop a new oil field near Scotland’s Shetland Islands, buoying environmentalists’ hopes that the project may be shelved altogether as Britain seeks to combat global warming.

Shell, which had a 30% stake in the Cambo project, said Friday that the decision was based on an assessment of what was best for the company and its shareholders.

The project has faced stiff opposition from groups such as Greenpeace, which argue Britain must stop developing new oil and gas fields if it is serious about reducing carbon emissions. U.K. authorities granted an exploration license for the project in 2001 and the government is now considering whether to authorize commercial operations. read more

Shell’s decision to abandon Cambo oil field does nothing to aid the transition to green energy

Shell’s decision to abandon Cambo oil field does nothing to aid the transition to green energy

Sky’s Ian King argues that environmental campaigners and other critics have scored an own goal by opposing the project and will only force us to buy in more energy from abroad.

: Business presenter : Friday 3 December 2021 

Shell’s decision not to proceed with its interest in the Cambo oil field may not necessarily be the triumph for environmental campaigners that they seem to think.

It does not, for example, guarantee that Cambo’s oil – some 170 million barrels worth over 25 years – will stay in the ground. read more

Shell moving its headquarters from The Hague to London

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’s giant $24b Prelude LNG ship shut down after fire

Shell’s giant $24b Prelude LNG ship shut down after fire

By Peter Milne

A fire late Thursday night on Shell’s Prelude floating LNG vessel off the Kimberley coast caused production at the $24 billion giant to be shut down and left the crew using backup power.

A small fire was detected at about 11pm in an electrical equipment area on the world’s largest vessel that can accommodate more than 200 crew.

A Shell spokesman said the fire triggered automatic fire systems and was extinguished before it spread further and all workers were safe and accounted for. 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
