Royal Dutch Shell Crimes Against Humanity?

By a Guest Contributor

Royal Dutch Shell may have a serious problem if they are found to be guilty of violating international ‘human rights’ law, etc. Perhaps this is why the British and Dutch governments have moved to try and shut down a decision on the part of the US Supreme Court that would allow the original case to proceed.

I am referring to the case in Brazil where Shell clearly knew what kind of harm they were doing to their workers, the local environment, and through the sale of pesticides whose sale and manufacture had been banned in the mid-1970’s within the US and other countries. read more

Shell seeks to draw a line after fourth cut in reserves

By Michael Harrison, Business Editor

25 May 2004

Royal Dutch-Shell, the crisis-torn oil giant, yesterday cut its proven reserves for the fourth time this year but then sought to reassure the City that it had drawn a line at last under the fiasco.

The latest downgrade means that Shell has now removed 4.5 billion barrels of oil from the proven category, equivalent to just under a quarter of its total reserves.

Malcolm Brinded, the head of exploration and production for Shell, said he was as sure as he could be that this would be the last revision to reserves estimates. “We are not planning to make further changes but you can never say never,” he added.

MOSCOW | Fri May 25, 2012 5:12am EDT

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) may join a Gazprom (GAZP.MM)-led initiative to extract gas from the Arctic seabed off Russia’s coast, several sources said, in an attempt to inject new impetus into the huge project delayed by years of talks over financing.

Located in the freezing waters of the Barents Sea, the Shtokman gas field is one of the world’s largest with reserves of almost 4 trillion cubic meters – enough to meet global demand for about a year. However, the project to extract gas has been mired in prolonged and painstaking talks over billions of dollars of investment, timing and the make-up of the consortium. read more
