Jeroen van der Veer remains refreshingly candid even after all Royal Dutch/Shell has been through this year.

Asked at a conference about the International Energy Agency’s call for governments, regulators and corporations to unify energy reserves accounting, he said: “We are like the schoolboy standing in the corridor outside the classroom. I don’t think it is for us to lead the charge of new rules on reserve accounting, we shall leave that to others. But whatever the rules are, we will comply with them.” read more

Shell seeking to circumvent sanctions on Iran

UANI Calls on U.S., EU to Reject Royal Dutch Shell Scheme to Repatriate Iranian Oil Money Through Grain Deal

Published: October 26, 2012 

NEW YORK — United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) CEO, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, issued the following statement Friday in response to reports that Royal Dutch Shell is seeking to circumvent international sanctions and repay its $1.4 billion oil debt to Iran by having the U.S. agribusiness conglomerate Cargill ship Iran the equivalent amount of grain:

The U.S. and EU must not approve Royal Dutch Shell’s scheme to repay its oil debt to Iran by way of a grain shipment from Cargill. Although we support humanitarian shipments to Iran, Shell is simply trying to repatriate oil wealth to the regime and circumvent sanctions. Such a transaction is not humanitarian, and is incompatible with the current international sanctions against Iran. read more
