Shell’s SS tactics in Ireland

“Since the proposed project began, your company and/or agents acting on your behalf have been directly responsible for and/or suspected of… Video surveillance of bathers including children at the local beaches. Video surveillance of people in their homes.”

Dear John,

Regards to yourself and my best wishes to your father. Below is the text of the letter to Shell referred to in today’s Irish Times (13th Apr.’10) which you have on your website. Your many readers, including Shell ‘reputation managers’ may be interested in the full text. I have also sent copy as attachment to email as that may be easier to transfer to your site.

Thank you, Maura Harrington.

By James Paton

April 14 (Bloomberg) — The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission cleared Royal Dutch Shell Plc and PetroChina Co.’s A$3.5 billion ($3.3 billion) bid to acquire Arrow Energy Ltd. after a monthlong review of the proposed transaction.

The exit of Shell from downstream activities “represents all integrated oil super majors across the world retreating from the forecourt”

Stuff.co.nz By PETER KERR – BusinessWire Last updated 14:11 13/04/2010

The Infratil New Zealand Super Fund joint venture that bought Royal Dutch Shell’s local downstream assets gained an “extremely cheap” entry into the industry, according to brokerage McDouall Stuart.

The purchase at just under $700 million has been made at the bottom of the economic cycle, and both Infratil and the Super Fund are longer term participants willing to see through that cycle, said John Kidd, head of research at McDouall Stuart.

Shares of Infratil slipped 1.1 percent to $1.76, having reached an eight-month high on Monday. read more
