Kiobel vs. Royal Dutch Petroleum: Obama Administration now supports Shell

FROM A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR 

John,

I found this article and thought your readers might find it interesting. Politics does indeed make for strange bedfellows. Marvin Odum’s 12 plus visits to the White House have obviously ‘paid off’, although one wonders who got paid off, no pun intended. It is amazing how far politicians will go to get elected.

If you doubt the significance of the political influence that Royal Dutch Shell has then this should cast away any and all doubts. Recall that the British and Dutch governments went to bat on behalf of Royal Dutch Shell.

The Washington Post: Shell shareholders to back unification

FROM OUR ARCHIVES…

Another dampener on Shell’s biggest corporate overhaul since the two holding firms tied up in 1907, is a spat over the rights to the web domain “royaldutchshellplc.com.” Disgruntled shareholder Alfred Donovan beat Shell to register the domain name. Shell has sued Donovan for the rights to the domain but while the matter plays out, Donovan uses the site to lambaste Shell management.

The Washington Post: Shell shareholders to back unification

Friday 24 June 2005

All Reuters News DUBLIN (Reuters) – Royal Dutch/Shell shareholders are expected to vote overwhelmingly in favor of scrapping the oil giant’s century-old dual-listed structure on Tuesday.

Shell hopes the unification of its Dutch and British parent companies will improve management efficiency and accountability, areas on which the firm needs to reassure investors after a damaging reserves overbooking scandal last year.

“It’s what investors have been calling for. Hopefully it will sail through … we hope it’s going to augur a new era,” said Richard Lewis, who manages $8 billion, including Royal Dutch shares, for New Star Asset Management in London. read more

Shell fights on for Cove

Mark Leftly: Sunday 24 June 2012

Royal Dutch Shell is expected to turn up the heat in its battle for Cove Energy, the Mozambique-focused gas explorer that has generated huge interest among the supermajors.

Cove shareholders have until Wednesday to accept Shell’s 220p-a-share bid, which was tabled in April but has since been trumped by an offer of 240p, or £1.2bn, from Thailand’s PTT Exploration & Production. Shell has already extended its offer once, but can do so again as an absolute deadline cannot be enforced until mid-July. read more

Shell gears up for new Arctic quest

By Jennifer A. Dlouhy: Saturday, June 23, 2012

VALDEZ, Alaska – A new chapter in U.S. oil exploration could open within days as Shell sails into seas north of Alaska, hoping to tap into a potential 90 billion barrels of crude that have beckoned for decades.

The company has been there before, drilling exploratory wells in the 1980s and 1990s that tantalized with promise of riches deep below the freezing Chukchi and Beaufort seas.

But a decadelong slump in oil prices depressed the value of the bounty. Crude from the Exxon Valdez tanker blackened Alaska’s coast, drawing worldwide scrutiny to the potential for oil-related environmental disaster – a prospect reinforced two decades later when a blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico claimed lives and livelihoods there. read more

IS SHELL AN ENVIRONMENTAL AND A FINANCIAL RISK IN THE ARCTIC?

Posted June 22, 2012

EXTRACTS

THE ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS:  

For four years the focus of this blog has been to highlight the great risks of opening America’s Arctic, the Beaufort and Chukchi seas, to offshore oil development. We started by explaining the extreme fragility of the Arctic Ocean ecosystem…

THE BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL RISKS:

It comes as no surprise that Shell routinely ignores the warnings of environmental groups; our message doesn’t fit in their business plan. What is surprising, though, is when Lloyd’s of London, the world’s largest insurance company, a syndicate of professionals focusing on risk assessment and management, issued a report essentially echoing our concerns, the warnings were equally ignored. You would think if Shell isn’t going to listen to us, they would at least listen to one of the world’s foremost financial institutions. read more
