Oil and gas trade body drops ‘oil and gas’ from its name

By Matt Oliver: 31 January 2022 • 4:20pm

The trade group that represents UK oil and gas companies is dropping the words “oil and gas” from its name to reflect the ongoing rise of green energy.

Oil and Gas UK will be renamed Offshore Energies UK from February 14, the body said on Monday.

It follows a year-long strategic review by the group, which said the change reflects “the evolving nature of the industry”.

OGUK said its members, which include BP, British Gas owner Centrica, Shell and Chevron approved the name change in December. read more

Experts warn Shell and BP could find it ‘impossible’ to work in Russia if it invades Ukraine

  • Western countries have threatened to impose crippling sanctions on Moscow 

  • US, UK and EU are drawing up plans to hit Russian gas projects with curbs

Shell and BP could find it ‘impossible’ to work in Russia if it invades Ukraine, experts have warned.

Western countries have threatened to impose crippling sanctions on Moscow after it began building up troops on the Ukrainian border.

 Analysts said soaring oil prices could cushion the blow for Shell, BP and other firms affected by the rules.

Shell works in Russia with energy giant Gazprom and BP with state-backed oil firm Rosneft, in which the British group owns an almost 20 per cent stake. read more

Hopeless Shell Broadband

The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Broadband published on Trustpilot.

HOPELESS

BROADBAND. JUST DON’T DO IT FOLKS.
I’ve been trying for 17 days to transfer service to a new address and it’s proving impossible:
Calls are deferred with no promised callback.
Webchat requests are deferred, or the webchat isn’t even manned – so you wait in queue position 1 for an hour for nothing.
Emails, even COMPLAINT emails are ignored.
I’ve now cancelled but even getting that confirmed is proving impossible because I’m unable to get a response. read more

Shell Energy absolutely chronic customer service coupled with consistent harassment and threats

Absolutely chronic customer service…

Absolutely chronic customer service coupled with consistent harassment and threats. Impossible to speak to anything other than a bot (currently I am no 70 awaiting “chat” service). This company should be investigated by the ombudsman, it is simply not fit to trade

What customer service?

No immediate option when moved across from Green, but its fair to say they couldn’t organise the proverbial in a brewery. Two ‘tickets’ lodged for tech problems 10 days ago now and simply heard nothing from them since. The nature of the problems are costing them so in no hurry to chase them up! read more

Pathetic reliability from Shell Broadband

Shell Energy Broadband Reviews recently posted on broadband.co.uk

Reviewer Terence Coleman: Location Cheltenham: Date 2022-01-28

Comments

Waste of space. They give you a 3rd hand refurbished router that doesn’t meet current standards. When you complain they offer to upgrade you (5 times during a 30 minute call), to a package that costs the same as the one you have just switched from.

Reviewer Charles: Location Birmingham: Date 2022-01-22

Comments

Broadband speed is generally acceptable, but reliability is pathetic. What is good about speed when the connection keeps dropping off? Cheap broadband but not worth the stress alongside. Avoid. read more

Shell says one of the largest hydrogen electrolyzers in the world is now up and running in China

PUBLISHED FRI, JAN 28 20227:39 AM EST

Anmar Frangoul KEY POINTS
  • Located in Zhangjiakou, Hebei Province, China, the electrolyzer will produce green hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles during the Winter Olympics.
  • Wael Sawan, Shell’s integrated gas, renewable and energy solutions director, says electrolyzer is “the largest in our portfolio to date.”
  • While there is excitement in some quarters about green hydrogen’s potential, the vast majority of hydrogen generation is currently based on fossil fuels.

A 20 megawatt hydrogen electrolyzer described as “one of the world’s largest” has begun operations, energy major Shell said Friday.

Located in Zhangjiakou, Hebei Province, China, the electrolyzer will produce green hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles being used at Zhangjiakou’s competition zone during the Winter Olympics, which are due to open on Feb. 4. Once the Games finish, commercial and public transport will use the hydrogen. read more

CHRISSY SUTTLES   | Beaver County Times POTTER TWP. — A Pennsylvania petrochemical plant years in the making will likely be online in a matter of months, with crews putting the finishing touches on Shell’s ethane cracker facility.

    Shell’s massive carbon capture facility in Canada emits far more than it captures, study says

    Sam Meredith@SMEREDITH19
    • The “Quest” plant in Alberta, Canada, owned by oil giant Shell, has previously been touted as a “thriving example” of how CCS is working to significantly reduce carbon emissions.
    • However, an investigation by watchdog group Global Witness, showed that while 5 million tons of carbon dioxide had been prevented from escaping into the atmosphere at the plant since 2015, it released a further 7.5 million tons of greenhouse gases over the same period.
    • In response, a spokesperson for Shell told CNBC via email that the analysis was “simply wrong.”

    One of the only facilities in the world that uses carbon capture and storage technology (CCS) to reduce the emissions of hydrogen production has been found to emit far more greenhouse gas emissions than it captures.

    The Quest plant in Alberta, Canada, owned by oil giant Shell and designed to capture carbon emissions from oil sands operations and safely store them underground, has previously been touted as a “thriving example” of how CCS is working to significantly reduce carbon emissions. read more

    Can’t fix their own mistakes

    I moved home and left Shell. My bill has been incorrect for 6 weeks. I explained I would not pay my final bill until it is corrected.

    I have phoned multiple times, spent hours of my personal time to proactively solve this. Despite several promises from multiple agents my bill has never been updated.

    I am now being threatened with debt collectors and damage to my credit rating. I have ran out of time and energy and am just going to pay the bill. Terrible performance and a company I will never go with again no matter the cost. read more
