Shell shoots itself in both feet on Remembrance Day

By Paddy Briggs

The real question to ask about Shell’s unbelievably crass decision not to allow the sale of poppies at their petrol stations this year is at what level the call as made.

Ignore the statement from Shirley Cinco, at Shell’s “Customer Service Centre” in Manchester, that: “Rather than simply giving to worthy causes, Shell prefers to donate skills, time and knowledge as well as money. It is in the context of this strategy that Shell Retail will not be allowing any further charities, including the poppy appeal, to use its forecourt network to collect monies.” This is corporate speak of the worst kind and misses the real issue by many a mile. That issue is, of course, not about the decision itself but about who took it and about how it is perceived. read more

SHELL IT ‘IDENTITY CRISIS’

SHELL IT’s ‘IDENTITY CRISIS’

One of the more intriguing IT projects running at the moment is “IAM” – IDENTITY and ACCESS MANAGEMENT. Shell has always had poor quality ‘people’ records. Identity Theft is all around us. So an idea now exercising senior minds is that that “Corporate Identity Theft” could become a reality.

Far-fetched? Remember that computer viruses started in science fiction. Many Shell people now work from home and never meet anyone face-to-face. Some have never even met their bosses. So “IAM” sounds like an idea whose time has come, and is perhaps even overdue. Could this even be chance to enforce a set of standards on ALL Shell systems ? Even those that persistently ignore them? read more

Shell Ireland receives €90m from parent firm to complete Corrib gas works

By Gordon Deegan

Saturday, November 07, 2009

SHELL Ireland has received a €90 million cash injection to complete its controversial works to allow gas be taken from the Corrib gas field.

The cash injection to Shell E&P Ireland Ltd from its parent company is confirmed in documents recently lodged with the Companies’ Office.

The €90m represents a 28% increase in the company’s share capital to €344m.

A spokesman for Shell E&P Ireland confirmed that the injection of equity “is towards the development costs of the final phases of the project”. read more

Big Oil’s lean look fuels Houston area jobs fear

Houston's energy economy has clearly felt the sting of an unprecedented drop in crude and natural gas prices, with more than 18,000 jobs lost in past months.

But recent downsizing moves by Royal Dutch Shell, ConocoPhillips and other oil and gas companies appear to go beyond the typical bottom-of-the-cycle belt tightening.

They suggest a permanent shift toward doing more with less — in what could be a troubling trend for Houston.

SHELL MINDLESS AND MISGUIDED

Marc Horne

SHELL, the oil giant, is facing a boycott of its products by armed forces veterans after it banned poppy appeal collections at its petrol stations.

Veterans will this week discuss organising an embargo in protest at the Anglo-Dutch company’s refusal to allow poppies to be sold on its forecourts.

Shell Retail, which operates more than 1,000 service stations in the UK, imposed the ban because, it says, it already contributes to a number of charities, including Macmillan Cancer Relief, the RSPCA and Motability. read more
