CN crews are responding to a derailment and subsequent oil leak after nearly 40 train cars carrying crude oil derailed near a village in western Manitoba early Saturday morning.

The incident occurred on local rancher Jayme Corr’s property.

“You can smell crude in the air. That’s really concerning,” he said “There’s oil leaking, and where they’re sitting is [near] a water lagoon.”

According to Jonathan Abecassis a media relations director for CN,  approximately 37 crude oil cars have derailed and there is indeed a partial leak of crude oil.

“A perimeter has been set up around the area to facilitate site access. There are no reports of injuries or fires,” he wrote.

“CN crews will be conducting a full site assessment to determine how much product has spilled and exactly how many cars are involved. First responders are on location.”

CN’s environmental team has started cleaning up the area.

Corr says he thinks a derailment like Saturday’s has been a long time coming.

“It seems to be the trains go faster, they’re longer, heavier, and the maintenance is getting less and less,” Corr said.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada has sent investigators to the site of the derailment.

Oil majors increasingly are trying their hand at being alternative-energy minors, but this is still pinky-toe dipping.

Royal Dutch Shell, which traces its roots back to the late 19th century, has just bought Greenlots Global, a California software company serving the electric-vehicle charging sector. This follows other deals by Shell — along with the likes of BP, Chevron and Total — to invest in renewable energy, retail power, batteries and other non-fossil fuel businesses.

For now, though, this is still pinky-toe dipping. Shell’s plan to invest as much as $2 billion a year on “new energy” opportunities is a hefty amount, but less than 10 percent of its capital expenditure budget. Besides anything else, there’s a straightforward reason for taking it slow: returns.

Oil majors have a testy relationship with investors these days. Shell’s stock is one of the better performers, but mainly because it has embraced a strategy centered on payouts: Its dividend yield scrapes six percent. A decade of high spending trashed return on capital across the industry.

Alternative-energy investments can be justified on one level. A solar farm in the southwestern US is a relatively low-risk project for a more risk-averse crowd. But they also raise a conundrum, especially if eventually done at a meaningful scale. Investments in power-related infrastructure provide fundamentally different returns from what oil majors have offered historically. These companies have been built to take world-scale risks in the hope of generating high returns to match that.

French oil major Total provides a useful example here, because it has made some of the biggest investments in alternative energy businesses and, as a result, has come closest to actually splitting this business line out in its accounts. Total’s downstream operations picked up some of the slack as the oil crash hit the upstream. The gas and power business has had steady returns of about 10 percent

Total’s upstream oil and gas business accounted for more than four-fifths of capital employed in 2018, just as it did in 2015

It can be argued that alternative-energy businesses may not necessarily provide the thrills of cyclical upswings, but they do generate steady returns. Certainly, renewable-power projects seem to do so. But these are still early days.

Hence, Shell is taking an integrated approach to power, electric-vehicle charging and the like, similar to its existing model in oil and gas, aimed at capturing margins on several levels. One critical question concerns whether or not value will move up and down the electrified value chain, the way it does with oil and gas.

Proponents of oil majors pivoting to a brave new world can point to examples such as Ørsted ASA, the Danish oil and gas company that became an offshore wind-power giant. Two caveats, however: First, Ørsted’s target for annual return on capital employed through 2025 is 10 percent — about what you would expect for this sort of company but not an oil major. Second, getting investors comfortable with such a transformation is definitely a lot easier when you’re 50 percent-owned by the Kingdom of Denmark. For everyone else, the battle royal over what that incremental dollar goes toward — old energy, new energy, shareholders — is just getting going.

Oilfield Job Shop by Oilfield Job Shop Staff - 5d ago

Even if recently-imposed US sanctions are lifted, the accelerating exodus of Venezuela’s oil workers means that the country’s declining crude production is unlikely to rebound anytime soon.

Venezuela was once one of the world’s top five oil exporters, pumping 3.5 million barrels a day in 1998 when President Hugo Chavez was elected and launched Venezuela’s Bolivarian revolution.

Today, the state-run oil company PDVSA produces less than a third of that. Critics blame corruption and years of mismanagement by the socialist government.

Even worse, production is about to sink even further due to fresh sanctions by the Trump administration targeting PDVSA and its Houston-based subsidiary Citgo with the aim of depriving the increasingly wobbly President Nicolas Maduro of more than $11 billion in exports this year.

Venezuela’s oil workers began flooding out in 2003, shortly after Chavez fired thousands of them — many by name on national television — for launching a strike that paralyzed output. The oil workers accused Chavez of riding roughshod over the nation’s democratic institutions, while Chavez said the picketers were plotting a coup.

Tomas Paez, a professor at Central University of Venezuela who studies the Venezuelan exile community, estimates that 30,000 oil workers fled in the initial wave, many banned from working in the country’s oil industry.

He said it’s difficult to gauge how many more have left as Venezuela’s economic problems have worsened under Maduro, but from the tar sands of northern Canada to the deserts of Kuwait, Venezuelan roughnecks now live in more than 90 oil-producing countries.

“Let’s say, where there is oil, there is a Venezuelan,” Paez told the Associated Press.

Many have made new lives in their adopted countries with no plans to return to a gutted Venezuela. And with each new departure, fewer remain behind with the know-how to pump the world’s most abundant oil reserves, once the economic backbone of a thriving country.

“We are losing man hours, hours of training, millions and millions of hours that we can’t calculate,” said union leader Ivan Freites, secretary of the Federation of Professionals and Technicians of Oil Workers of Venezuela. “It’s impossible to recover our trained personnel working abroad.”

In a recent speech laying out the economic plan for his second six-year term, Maduro vowed to catapult Venezuela’s production to five million barrels a day. But he provided few details other than promising to take charge personally and root out corruption.

The embattled president retains support from powerful allies, including Russia and China, which are both heavily invested in Venezuela’s oilfields.

While the most-talented engineers left long ago — many contributing to a production boom in neighbouring Colombia — there’s still demand for labour throughout the industry.

“We’re still in a talent-short market, especially with people willing to go into hardship locations — like Kurdistan,” said Dane Groeneveld, CEO at California-based PTS Advance, an oil industry recruiter, referring to Iraq’s Kurdish region.

“It’s those people who are now getting picked up by national oil companies around the world,” Groeneveld added.

Indigenous pro oil rally in Alberta stresses energy industry is vital for them.

Indigenous supporters of Canada’s oil and gas industry turned out in force last week to make the point that the sector plays a vital role in their lives.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re a business owner or a worker or an aboriginal community. We’re all in this together,” Lee Thom, a councillor from Kikino Metis Settlement, told a crowd gathered in a recreation centre in Lac La Biche, Alberta.

Rene Houle from Whitefish Lake First Nation said the energy industry generates spinoff businesses that employ hundreds of people in his community — with the money that’s earned spent at car dealerships, movie theatres and other businesses in neighbouring towns.

The bottom line, he told The Canadian Press,  is the oil and gas sector helps keep people from becoming burdens on the social-welfare and justice systems.

“We would not have a proper living. We would not have a meaningful way of life, a healthy way of life,” Houle said. “Alone, our First Nation would not be able to generate that.”

Last Sunday’s rally was organized by the Region One Aboriginal Business Association, which represents northern Alberta Indigenous businesses, and was supported by Rally 4 Resources and Canada Action, which have organized other recent pro-oil rallies and convoys in Western Canada.

Organizers stressed the event was non-partisan and not affiliated with “yellow vest” events, where participants wear yellow, high-visibility vests similar to recent protests in France, but which often have an anti-United Nations message.

Attendees were instead asked to wear blue fire-retardant coveralls and hard hats.

Bill C-69, the federal legislation which critics argue will make it more difficult for new pipelines and energy projects to get approval, was mentioned during the rally.

While organizers and speakers said they weren’t completely opposed to the bill, they argued it needs to be amended to better balance economic development and the need to protect the environment, traditional Indigenous lands and harvesting rights.

“The way it is right now, in its current state, is devastating for oil and gas,” Shawn McDonald, president of the Region One Aboriginal Business Association, told the rally.
