Could this mean that Cambo is to be abolished?
Shell is selling its stake in the controversial Cambo oil field, it has been announced.
The project – which is west of Shetland – is the second-largest undeveloped oil and gas discovery in the UK’s North Sea.
The oil major is looking for a buyer for its 30% holding.
Cambo has been the focal point of many protests, and Shell has been rumoured for months to be looking for someone to take over its part.
The remaining 70% of the field is owned by Ithaca Energy.
