Comment on Wikipedia controversy

COMMENT FROM A FORMER SHELL EMPLOYEE (A RELIABLE SOURCE KNOWN TO US) WHO RETAINS CONTACT WITH SHELL INSIDERS

I am curious. Did this dust up with Wikipedia occur just after you notified RD Shell of your article about the US Dept. of Defense confirming that Shell was the object of a Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) counter-intelligence operation because of their (alleged) attempts to gain unlawful access to highly classified military technology, including technology related to the design/fabrication of nuclear weapons?

(Or perhaps it was caused by the recent dredging up of the story of their less than responsible manufacturing and distribution history of highly toxic and long lived pesticides, etc. Maybe it was both.) read more

Instant reaction on Wikipedia

By John Donovan

Within minutes of me publishing the article Wikipedia Klan exposed, the following posting was made on the Wikipedia nomination for deletion page for royaldutchshellplc.com.

Delete not enough coverage in reliable sources to have its own article. Blog sites criticizing large corporations are like teeth, we all have a mouthful. This article should have borne in mind that Wikipedia is not a platform for free speech, it is an encyclopedia.–?IanMacM? (talk to me) 16:13, 13 October 2010 (UTC) read more

Wikipedia Klan exposed

By John Donovan

Within literally a few minutes of publication yesterday of my article Ku Klux Klan culture at Wikipedia: secrecy and censorship a link to the article was inserted into the Wikipedia nominated for deletion page for the Wikipedia article… royaldutchshellplc.com.

This is the article under heavy attack by persons/ parties choosing to conceal their identities, motives and background.  The article in its current form was authored by a Wikipedia editor, not by me. I have not edited the article since June 2009.

Shortly thereafter the following message was inserted on to my Wikipedia User page…

This was instant retribution by persons/parties unknown in response to me exercising my right to freedom of expression/freedom of speech. An absolute disgrace.

Yesterday evening I received a message from the founder of MyWikiBiz which goes a long way to confirming that my concerns about Wikipedia articles relating to businesses being wide open to manipulation, so they end up being little more than adverts, are well-founded. This is true in respect of the Wikipedia article about Royal Dutch Shell. My own website, with publishes ALL news articles about Shell, negative and positive in nature, provides a much more accurate picture of Shell than the sanitized heavily censored Wikipedia articles. read more

Is Shell warming up BP for a friendly takeover bid?

Friends like these…

There has never been much love lost between British-based oil majors Royal Dutch Shell and BP.

But Shell chief executive Peter Voser’s attack on BP over the design of the Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico looks over the top.

He accused BP of using cheaper options in the drilling and claimed Shell would have handled matters differently. No doubt it would, in much the same way as it found its own creative way of measuring its oil reserves in 2004 that led to a clear-out of top management and regulatory fines. read more

Royal Dutch Shell wades in with attack on BP over spill

By Hugo Duncan and Simon Duke

Last updated at 12:49 AM on 13th October 2010

The boss of Royal Dutch Shell last night launched a blistering attack on beleaguered rival BP over the devastating Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Peter Voser said his company would never have made the mistakes that led to the death of 11 workers on the Deepwater Horizon rig and the biggest environmental disaster in US history.

‘Shell clearly would have drilled this well in a different way and would have had more options to prevent the accident from happening,’ he said. read more

Iraq Oil Is ‘Game Changer’

OCTOBER 13, 2010

Production Revival Will Challenge Big Suppliers Like Saudis, IEA Chief Says

Reuters: Iraqi police check oil pipelines during a patrol at the Shueiba refinery in the country’s southern province of Basra in August.

By GUY CHAZAN

The revival in Iraqi oil production will be a “game-changer” for global oil supplies and a challenge for other big oil producers like Saudi Arabia, the International Energy Agency said Tuesday

Fatih Birol, the IEA’s chief economist, said in an interview that 20 years from now, Iraq could be pumping two to three times more than the 2.5 million barrels a day it currently produces—”comforting” oil markets worried about shrinking supplies, and possibly buffering against price spikes. read more

BP’s report into how the Deepwater Horizon exploded and sank on April 20, killing 11 men, cleared the company of any serious negligence.

But Mr Voser said to “correctly investigate” the company ought to have looked more closely at its own well design.

The oil executive sought to distance the industry from BP’s mistakes, saying his own company would have had more safety barriers in place. read more
