What the news media says about the website which has cost Shell billions…

In July 2007, the One World Trust, an independent research organisation associated with the UK Houses of Parliament and the United Nations, said in an "Accountability in Action" newsletter: "As The Royal Dutch Shell plc website shows, a gripe site can have a profound impact on global organisations". The newsletter went on to say: "The site has not only cost Shell billions of dollars in Russia... "even Shell insiders unhappy with the company use it".

Message from the Rossport Solidarity Camp: Shell Corrib Gas Project in Ireland: ‘More jailings ahead…

Shell are also applying for Compulsory Acquisition Orders (which led to the jailing of the Rossport Five back in June 2005). I have no doubt that this will lead to serious confrontation on the ground with plenty of folk living locally saying they are prepared to go to jail.

Why Exxon Still Denies Peak Oil

Executives, especially Exxon executives, have thought for some time that they could keep oil prices under control by pretending that Peak Oil is a left-wing myth. Or that it won’t happen until we’re all dead. Most executives (other than Exxon’s) have stopped that foolishness by now.

Chevron Quarterly Profit: Soaring crude prices are pumping up profits to astronomical levels

From THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: Chevron Corp. reported a 9.6% rise in first-quarter profit, echoing a theme set earlier in the week by other international oil companies: Soaring crude prices are pumping up profits to astronomical levels.

Levy is needed on oil profit windfalls

From The Los Angeles Times: It seems quaint to think of it now, but it was only three years ago that lawmakers in Washington were debating whether to impose a windfall profits tax on the oil industry for all oil sold above $40 a barrel.

Are the International Oil Companies Running Out of Oil?

Is the world running out of oil? The answer is: No, not for a long, long time. So far, we have produced only about 1 trillion of the world’s approximately 5 trillion barrels of recoverable oil, both conventional and nonconventional.

But getting at the other 8 to 10 trillion barrels of oil locked within planet Earth is going to be very, very difficult, if not impossible. Even for the 4 trillion barrels of remaining recoverable oil, we face production barriers, environmental concerns, infrastructure constraints and geopolitical complications that are truly mind-boggling.

Time for big oil to explore places it would rather avoid

Rising costs and taxes, and limited access to new supplies help explain why BP and Shell have performed so badly and underperformed US peers ExxonMobil and Chevron. But other factors have been at work, such as the fatal accident at BP's Texas City oil refinery and the reserve misreporting scandal at Shell.

Exxon must act to keep an enviable reputation

Whether viewed over the past five years or past 20, Exxon's total shareholder returns have comfortably exceeded the average of its peers: Royal Dutch Shell, BP and Chevron.

But nobody is perfect...

Dawn of an energy famine

This week the shape of the global energy crisis came into its sharpest focus yet. The world needs renewable energy fast, but as BP and Shell announced record profits, they also demonstrated that they are in essence retreating from renewables, perhaps with the exception of biofuels. They intend to focus their record billions on expanding production of what remains of traditional oil and gas, plus tar sands and liquid fuels from coal - ruinous in their effect on the climate.

Letters to The Guardian: Shell ditches renewables stake

Google Images: Shell Logo

Following the government’s recent re-embrace of nationalisation, and Shell’s decision to withdraw from the London Array project (Shell ditches renewables stake, May 1), how about bringing Shell’s share into public ownership, financed by an appropriate levy on Shell’s rapidly increasing profits?

In search of some wind in their sails

Shell may have been concerned by the rising price of offshore wind, but it is seriously misguided if it thinks that concentrating its efforts on extracting the remaining fossil fuels is a better bet than renewables in the medium or long term.

Problem with Equiniti’s online service for Shell shares

Are oil companies up to their ‘old tricks’?

Jeroen van der Veer, chief executive of Royal Dutch Shell, says that the proposed European Union scheme to force companies to pay for carbon emission permits — previously handed out free — threatens to destroy Europe’s petrochemical and refining industries. Mr van der Veer, whose company made a profit of $27.6 billion last year, thinks that the proposals would harm his “struggling” industry
