BBC News: Shell names first Nigerian boss

BBC News: Shell names first Nigerian boss

20 July 04

Oil giant Shell has for the first time named a Nigerian to head its operations in Nigeria, one of the world’s biggest oil exporters.

Basil Omiyi, 58, will start work as Shell Nigeria’s managing director in September, after joining the company 34 years ago.

Localisation has been a key demand of Nigeria’s restive oil-workers’ unions.

The appointment appears to scotch reports that Shell would leave Nigeria – where it is the biggest oil producer.

“I am honoured to be the first of what I expect will be many Nigerians to hold the post. I look forward to the opportunities and challenges which lie ahead,” Mr Omiyi said. read more

NEW DELHI: Petrogoods customers are in for a global experience from the third quarter of the current fiscal, with the government set to allow the world’s biggest retailer, Shell, to start running its gasoline stations.

Shell has submitted to oil ministry an audited report on completing investment in excess of Rs 2,000 crore in the oil sector. Once it is vetted, the company can start selling products. “We will be in the marketplace in the third quarter of the current fiscal. Our investment in the Hazira LNG project itself exceeds Rs 2,000 crore. There are others. We expect a clearance any day now,” Vikram Singh Mehta, who heads Shell’s India operations, said. Shell has licence to open up to 2,000 outlets but can only construct them at present and not start selling products till the investment is completed. read more

Royal Dutch/Shell, the Anglo-Dutch energy group, plans to reduce sharply the number of international law firms it uses in an attempt to cut its $100m (£53m) a year legal bill.

Shell, which already has 550 in-house lawyers, is in the middle of a review that will see the number of external advisers it relies on internationally falling from 20 to fewer than five. It plans to retain another 10 firms for specific projects.

Clive Grant, the group’s legal services co-ordinator, said: “Shell is trying to reduce its overall legal spend by using fewer international law firms, with whom we build close relationships.” read more
