During an oil industry conference in Abuja this week, Royal Dutch Shell Africa Vice President Ann Pickard warned that the petroleum industry bill would make a bad situation worse and could scare away as much as $50 billion in deep offshore oil investments. Ms. Pickard on Tuesday called the bill a "cumbersome document that lacks insight into the very basics of our industry." – Royal Dutch Shell plc .com [cached]

Ann Pickard, Shell's chief in Nigeria, knows the true meaning of oil crisis.
(Fortune Magazine) - Ann Pickard's title sounds normal enough - she's regional executive vice president in Africa for Royal Dutch Shell's exploration and production division. But there's nothing normal whatsoever about Pickard's job. Indeed, as Shell's top official in Nigeria, Pickard may well hold the most dangerous executive post within the oil industry.
A 53-year-old Wyoming native who helped organize battered women's shelters before entering the energy biz in the late 1980s - "making $7,000 a year doesn't quite cut it," she says of her former life - Pickard is the first woman to run Shell's African operation. She talks a lot about reducing accidents, and by accidents, she's not talking about the industrial variety.
"Our accidents tend to be people getting shot because they're at the wrong place at the wrong time," Pickard says matter-of-factly.
"I don't think it was an attack on Shell per se, but more a political point being made to the government that the militants can reach anywhere the industry operates," says Pickard, who reports to Shell's E&P chief Malcom Brinded.
A mother of two young children, Pickard says she would not remain in Nigeria if she believed her children or husband, a retired naval officer, were in danger. (She typically travels with bodyguards and police escorts.) Why does Pickard stay? "I like these types of environments because you make a difference," Pickard says.
She ticks off a list Shell's contributions to local communities - ranging from employment to health programs to college scholarships.
Green is most open, and red is least," Pickard says.

Ms Pickard's appointment as chairman of Shell Australia, replacing Russell Caplan who is retiring after 42 years with Shell, is another coup for Perth at the same time as further weakening Melbourne's once-proud title as the capital of the country's resource sector.
Mrs Pickard (pictured below) arrived in Perth three months ago to take up the reins as head of Shell's Australian upstream business and with a self-proclaimed mandate to change Shell's upstream status from non-operator to that of an operator.
Woodside chief executive Don Voelte, who is a close personal friend of Ms Pickard's, is likely to welcome her promotion.
Ms Pickard will take over the chairmanship of Shell Australia on August 1.
June 4 (Bloomberg) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Europe's largest oil company by market value, said Ann Pickard will succeed Russell Caplan as chairman of its Australian operations on Aug. 1.
Pickard will also continue to be executive vice president for oil and gas exploration and production in the country, Shell said.
Shell Australia's business includes two refineries, the Prelude floating liquefied natural gas project, a stake in the Chevron Corp.-led Gorgon LNG venture, and a proposed coal-seam gas to LNG plant in Queensland state. Perth-based Pickard, 54, took up her Australian role in March following her role as Shell's regional executive vice president for Africa.
Australia is "the biggest growth area we've got," Pickard said last month. She was previously based in Lagos, Nigeria, for about four years.
