The Pipe

Oil exploration in the North Sea was in the spotlight yesterday after Royal Dutch Shell revealed that a pipeline leak resulted in an oil spill of 1,300 barrels.

At the same time the Norwegian energy giant Statoil announced that a recent discovery in the North Sea may be larger than previously thought and that oil production should be expanded. The company Heritage Oil reported that drilling and testing results from the first horizontal well in the Zapadno Chumpasskoye field in Russia has exceeded expectations and that they want to expand too.

We would like to recommend you to watch the nominee for Cinema for Peace International Green Film Award “The Pipe” by Risteard O Domhnaill about Shell’s grip on Irish fossile resources.
