Hub-bub over Shell’s drilling plans for the off-shore US Arctic

OPINION OF A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR

John,

Permit me an observation about the very public hub-bub over Shell’s drilling plans for the off-shore US Arctic this summer.

Shell plans to drill in the US off-shore Arctic have been bitterly contested in the media, the courts, and the halls of Congress. Shell has apparently managed to overcome the technical and political obstacles and will be permitted to drill this summer, weather permitting. Given all the attention that will be focused on these exploratory drilling operations it is unlikely that there will be any sort of major ‘problem’ during drilling operations. It is also highly likely that these exploratory test wells will be successful and that the battle over oil production from off-shore US Arctic will move into its next phase. read more

London Evening Standard: Shell ‘has lied for 10 years’

London Evening Standard: Shell ‘has lied for 10 years’

James Rossiter,

25 June 2004

EMBATTLED oil giant Shell has been dealt another blow with the filing of a new multi-billion dollar US class action against dozens of directors.

The action accuses the company of falsifying its reserves for almost 10 years and demands that ‘insiders’ who benefited must be brought to book.

Today’s filing is also the first lawsuit in the Shell saga to accuse auditors KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers of negligence and malpractice.

The firm has admitted four times since January that it overstated the amount of oil and gas on its books, That has resulted in it reducing its proven reserves by 4.5bn barrels, or 22% of the total. read more

Insight: In hours, caustic vapors wreaked quiet ruin on biggest U.S. refinery

(Reuters) – In the end, all it took was a small chemical spill — perhaps less than a barrelful — to bring down the newest, mightiest oil refinery in the United States.

PORT ARTHUR, Texas | Mon Jun 25, 2012 11:50am IST

(Reuters) – In the end, all it took was a small chemical spill — perhaps less than a barrelful — to bring down the newest, mightiest oil refinery in the United States.

Three weeks ago, while workers repaired a minor leak at the Port Arthur, Texas plant owned by Motiva Enterprises, a few gallons a day of so-called “caustic” was inadvertently seeping into the newly built crude distillation unit (CDU), the 30-story-high network of interconnected cylinders and latticed pipelines at the heart of the refining process. read more

‘War crimes’, Shell and the Australian government

25 Jun 2012, 9:10 am   –   Source: The Conversation

Actions taken by a previous Australian government could be working against Nigerian plaintiffs who accuse oil giant Shell of being complicit in war crimes, write Rosaria Burchielli, Annie Delaney.

We all know corporations do bad things. Big corporates have been publicly named and shamed for their participation in causing harm to people and the planet, and they are not always held to account.

As the 2009 Ruggie report on business and human rights noted governance gaps have appeared which create a “permissive environment” allowing corporations to act with impunity.

But what we don’t all know is how so-called democratic governments support these same corporations who inflict harm. These are governments that have a duty to protect human rights and who are signatories to numerous international human rights conventions. read more
