Camcorder strangest of Corrib incidents

LORNA SIGGINS

ANALYSIS : THE Corrib gas controversy has been marked by flashpoints, but none more extraordinary than that which occurred on March 31st of last year.

On that date, NUI Maynooth postgraduate student Jerrie Ann Sullivan was one of two women arrested near Glengad for alleged public order offences, and released later from Belmullet Garda station without charge.

Recording equipment, used by protesters, gardaí and private security, has become a type of armour in the long-running dispute. And so gardaí confiscated a camcorder which Sullivan had with her, but which she had borrowed from the university for her research. It was returned to the women on their discharge. read more

Shell sees profits surge on oil price rise

Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell today revealed that profits rose almost 50 per cent during the first three months of the year as it joined rival BP in benefiting from higher oil prices.

The Anglo-Dutch firm reported earnings of $4.9bn (£3.2bn) for the first three months of the year – just one day after BP posted profits of $5.6bn (£3.6bn) for the same period.

The profit surge has been fuelled by a marked increase in the price of crude oil. At the height of the recession in 2009, the average price of oil was just above $41 a barrel. In contrast, the average price for the first quarter of 2010 stands at $76 a barrel.

The company cut 5,000 jobs last year and will remove another 1,000 in 2010 – mainly in downstream and corporate functions – to make it more competitive against its rivals. read more

How Shell Made It Big on Facebook: a gushing farce

By John Donovan

The Wall Street Journal has today published an article by Ben Rooney under the headline:

How Shell Made It Big on Facebook

It can fairly be described as a gushing piece with Mr Rooney expressing his admiration for Shell’s “impressive achievement” in managing to “clock up just shy of one million Facebook fans in under two months?”

The article contains glaring howlers. It says that globally Shell has 50,000 employees, when it actually has around 100,000. It claims there is no attempt by Shell to  hide controversial topics, “such as Antarctica oil exploration,” when in fact the controversy is about Shell’s plans to commence drilling in the Arctic.  read more
