Anthony Ogalo (retail sales manager), Christine Busingye, Diana Kigozi, and Sam Bukenya say the company has deliberately refused to inform them about the details of its intended sale.

The campaigners, from Greenpeace, dropped a 40-metre square banner, which has a picture of an oil rig and the words It’s No Oil Painting, down the front of the gallery. read more

Hi Alfred,

I designed an online resource guide for students called http://www.environmentalsciencedegree.com.

Kiobel et al vs. Royal Dutch Shell at the US Supreme Court

Ogoni rallying call…

EDITED MESSAGE FROM OUR FRIEND, OGONI ACTIVIST, BEN IKARI (Ben is not particularly fond of Shell)

Dear Ogonis, Friends and Supports of the Ogoni struggle living in the Washington, DC. area in particular. Please endeavor to attend the upcoming Ogoni case: Kiobel et al vs. Royal Dutch Shell. The hearing or argument is taking place at the United States Supreme Court (USSC), at One First Street Washington, DC on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 (next week).

This case will hopefully help change the way American companies and foreign ones such as $hell, will do business oversees henceforth. They shall be forced to apply same standards that are operational in America when in foreign countries. Implying especially, that they shall be held accountable for human rights violations as a way to curb corporate sponsorship of the kinds of crimes, genocidal cases recorded in Ogoni and Niger delta. read more

Shell Bids $1.6 Billion for African Oil Explorer Cove Energy

Feb. 22 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Europe’s largest oil company, offered to buy African explorer Cove Energy Plc for 992.4 million pounds ($1.6 billion) to gain a foothold in Mozambique.

Shell is offering 195 pence for each Cove share, a 26 percent premium to the closing price of the London-based company yesterday, according to a statement. Cove’s board separately said it expected to recommend the proposed acquisition.

Cove put itself up for sale last month after reporting one of the world’s largest gas discoveries in a decade off Mozambique. Cove has an 8.5 percent stake in Rovuma Area 1, which holds 15 trillion to 30 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas, enough to justify production of liquefied natural gas for Asian markets. The find is operated by Anadarko Petroleum Corp. read more

Scandal tainted Executive Director Malcolm Brinded ejected from Shell?

By John Donovan: Wednesday 22 February 2012

Seems we should change the poster to “NOT WANTED”

Royal Dutch Shell has today announced the surprise departure of Executive Director Malcolm Brinded.

The announcement does not say that he has retired from the company, but instead that he has “agreed to step down.” In other words, he was asked to leave.

Mr Brinded has attracted negative publicity for his association with past scandals, including the oil reserves fraud.

His role in the Brent Bravo “avoidable accident” resulted in the deaths of Shell employees, a record breaking fine being imposed on Shell, a police investigation and a long campaign for offshore worker safety by retired Shell International HSE Group Auditor, Bill Campbell. read more
