UANI Condemns Royal Dutch Shell for Increasing Its Business in Iran

Sept. 28, 2010, 2:35 p.m. EDT

NEW YORK, Sep 28, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) — United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) today condemned Royal Dutch Shell for increasing its business with Iran. Rather than complying with the spirit of U.S. and EU law, Royal Dutch Shell over the summer conducted over a billion dollars’ worth of trade in crude oil. The U.S. sanctions that President Obama signed into law in July are targeted directly at Iran’s oil industry. The Guardian broke the news of Shell’s business in Tuesday’s newspaper. read more

Shell Iran controversy: internal emails reveal panic at Shell

By John Donovan

I am in possession of authentic Shell internal emails revealing that Shell prepared contingency plans out of concern at the prospect of a boycott of Shell in the USA, arising from Shell’s treachery in dealing with Iran.

The emails are available to the news media on request to [email protected]

Royal Dutch Shell is still trading with the fanatical Iranian regime despite: –

*Iran’s avowed intent to become a nuclear power…

*Sanctions imposed on Iran…

*Iranian threats to eliminate Israel… read more

BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL: THE PIPE

BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL 13 – 28 October 2010

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cm58nTYARzE The Pipe

Risteard Ó Domhnaill’s compelling and deeply moving documentary follows a campaign trying to prevent Shell lay a pipeline in county Mayo.

When it was discovered that there was a reserve of 11 trillion cubic feet of natural gas 80km off the west coast of Ireland, a consortium led by Shell developed plans to lay a pipeline into County Mayo, through the village of Rossport. Without having been consulted in the planning process, the small farming and fishing community objected, fearing the risk of environmental damage, and understandably keen to protect their land, fishing grounds and, indeed, their very way of life. Risteard Ó Domhnaill’s compelling, moving film followed the campaign against Shell over four years. There are disturbing scenes of Irish Garda being deployed to remove protestors and drag people to jail; and implications that the Irish government is backing Shell, motivated by economic greed. Tension mounts when the protestors disagree on the best way to take Shell on, and individuals feel compelled to take increasingly more desperate action. Ultimately, The Pipe serves as a stirring tribute to the brave men and women fighting for their rights, and standing up to a corporate giant. Yet there’s poignancy, too, as its inhabitants accept, whether Shell stay or go, Rossport will never be the same again. read more

CBS News Report: Shell Increases Oil Trade with Iran

CBS News.com

September 28, 2010 6:28 AM

While its competitors bowed to international pressure against trade with Iran, the U.K.-registered oil giant Shell increased its purchase of crude from the isolated regime over the summer, according to a report in Tuesday’s Guardian.

The British broadsheet says it obtained confidential documents revealing that Shell paid Iran at least $1.5 billion for crude oil in the summer months alone, as competitors including BP halted orders from the Islamic Republic.

Iran is under strict economic and military embargoes implemented by the United Nations Security Council and many countries unilaterally, including, of course, the United States.

Shell’s only response to the Guardian’s report was to insist that the purchase of Iranian crude in no way violates any sanctions.

The importation of oil from Iran has not been banned by the sanctions currently in place, but most large petroleum companies have voluntarily stopped purchasing from the nation. read more

Shell increases crude oil trade with Iran – report

Reuters Africa Tue Sep 28, 2010 1:41am GMT

LONDON, Sept 28 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L: Quote) has bought $1.5 billion worth of crude oil from the National Iranian Oil Company (NOIC), Britain’s Guardian newspaper said, citing sensitive trading documents.

The newspaper said the UK-registered company this summer stepped up its orders of Iranian oil while other major buyers — including BP (BP.L: Quote) and India’s Reliance Industries (RELI.BO: Quote) — halted orders following U.N.-imposed sanctions in June in reaction to Iran’s uranium enrichment programme.

Wide-ranging international sanctions implemented in June and July have excluded crude oil sales, but Western-allied powers have increased political pressure on countries to trade less with Iran. read more
