Shell announces Iraq natural gas joint venture gets final approval

The Iraqi cabinet today approved an agreement with Royal Dutch Shell ("Shell") and Mitsubishi Corporation, forming a joint venture to gather raw gas from three major oil fields, adding an important domestic energy source for Iraq and offering the potential for gas exports.

The joint venture, held 51% by Iraq's South Gas Company, 44% by Shell and 5% by Mitsubishi Corporation., will be called Basrah Gas Company (BGC) and will gather raw gas that is currently flared because of a lack of infrastructure to collect it.

Shell will provide project management and technical expertise with the intention to facilitate the learning and development of Iraqi staff to progressively assume key positions in the management of the company.

Climate Change

EU aims to show leadership at Durban talks

The EU should show leadership at the UN climate summit in Durban and fight to continue the CO2-cutting Kyoto Protocol beyond 2012, says a resolution adopted by the European Parliament on Wednesday.  According to the resolution, the EU should give "public and unequivocal" support to the continuation of the Kyoto Protocol, a landmark binding international agreement that commits industrialized countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The parliament wants to avoid any gap after the current phase expires at the end of 2012.

Echoing previous climate resolutions, the resolution says the EU should aim beyond its current 20 percent emissions reduction target for 2020. Doing so would be in its own economic interest, given the benefits of "green jobs, growth and security".
