Will Shell block Internet publication of its Nazi past?

Will Royal Dutch Shell carry out threat to block Internet publication of its connection with Hitler and the Nazis?

By John Donovan

I have printed below my recent email correspondence with Mr. Michiel Brandjes, the Company Secretary and General Counsel Corporate of Royal Dutch Shell Plc.

As can be seen, it relates to Royal Dutch Shell’s support for Hitler and the Nazis.

I have already published a related article: “Royal Dutch Shell and the Nazis: Shell threatens legal proceedings

This is obviously a highly sensitive subject for Shell.

The reply to my email concerning our intention to publish related information from “A History of Royal Dutch Shell”, authored by Shell’s paid historians, is the first time we have managed to elicit any comment from Shell on the subject. read more

Shell chief Peter Voser warns oil demand could outstrip supply

Peter Voser, the chief executive of Royal Dutch Shell, believes the $116 oil price caused by the Middle East crisis will soon ease back, but warned of a longer-term shock where “supply cannot meet demand”.

Lack of investment over the past two to three years will most likely be the biggest driver of high oil prices, he said on Friday.

“We may face a situation at one stage where supply cannot meet demand,” Mr Voser said. “That’s where OPEC spare capacity will help but we have to replace significant barrels because of natural decline over time.”

The boss of Europe’s biggest oil company said he had confidence in the ability of OPEC, the oil cartel, to compensate for the loss of 1m barrels per day of production from Libya. More than half the North African country’s production has been lost as uprisings worsens and the nation heads towards civil war. read more

The Inuit prepare to defend their rights

Mar 3rd 2011

WHEN in the Arctic, you should at least treat your host well. Royal Dutch Shell, an oil giant, had to learn this the hard way when planning to drill exploration wells in the Beaufort Sea off Alaska a couple of years ago. The firm had spent $84m on offshore leases and had satisfied regulators. But it failed to win over the Inupiat, an Inuit group. They worried that icebreakers and drill ships would hurt the bowhead whales on which they depend. Their leaders and environmental groups sued American regulators for not following a 1970 law on environmental impacts. This allowed them to wrest a number of concessions from Shell, including a commitment to stop all offshore operations during the bowhead migration and hunt, should drilling ever proceed. read more

Essar’s Stanlow deal hits union bump


S Kalyana Ramanathan / London March 5, 2011, 0:34 IST

Essar Energy’s $350-million deal to buy Shell UK’s oil refinery and associated assets at Stanlow, near Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, has hit a road block. The employee union has rejected the deal in its current form due to differences over pension payout and other issues.

Union members who spoke to Business Standard after the first round of consultation on March 1 said that while they were keen to become part of the Essar Group, they would not allow Shell to wash its hands off certain agreements it had entered into with the employees. read more

Countrywide plc cover-up may result in police investigation of ‘illegal dealings’

By John Donovan

MY NEPHEW, RICHARD DENTON.

Regular readers of this website may recall that in mid-February, I published an article about the the astonishing incompetence and mendacity of Carsons Estate Agents (a subsidiary of Countrywide plc) in its dealings with my nephew Richard Denton.

When I published the article, I challenged Carsons/Countrywide to issue defamation proceedings against me if they disputed the assertions I had made. It speaks volumes that no such action has been taken to protect the reputation of the UK’s largest Estate Agency Company.
