openprovider.co.uk: The EU domain battle

“A recent example of an expensive lawsuit is the Shell case for royaldutchshellplc.com and royaldutchshellgroup.com. Shell lost this case. So far the lawsuit has cost millions and the domain still doesn’t belong to them.

(Comment by John Donovan on 3 November 2012: We have no idea how much Shell paid out in legal costs for an action served in the USA with Shell paying all costs incurred by the World Intellectual Property Organisation. We do know how much it cost us in legal costs. Not one penny. We represented ourselves and vanquished Shell and its army of lawyers. We still own all of the Shell related domain names Shell unsuccessfully tried to seize.)

Shell Arctic season ends

Shell Arctic season ends; top holes drilled at Burger, Sivulliq

Shell has ended its 2012 drilling season in Alaska’s Beaufort and Chukchi seas, company spokesman Curtis Smith said Oct. 31, the last day that the company was permitted to drill under the terms of its approved exploration plans. Smith said that the company has drilled the top sections of the Burger-A well in the Chukchi Sea and the Sivulliq well in the Beaufort Sea, and that these top holes will position Shell for a successful drilling program in 2013.

“In support of 2012 drilling, Shell deployed numerous assets and rotated thousands of employees to the Arctic for the first time in 20 years,” Smith said. “We are very pleased with the work we accomplished this year and look forward to picking up where we left off when the sea ice retreats in 2013.” read more

How Shell’s Move To Revamp Culture Ended in Scandal

Paddy Briggs, a retired Shell communications executive, recalls one event where he and about 40 executives were issued shovels and pick-axes and dispatched to a Dutch village to help it restore an old playground. The oilmen gave up around lunchtime amid heavy rain. Such gimmicks became the butt of jokes, “but nobody said, ‘Hey, have we lost our minds here?’ “says Mr. Briggs.

In late 2000, the head of the Dutch exploration unit at Royal Dutch/Shell Group asked his planners to deliver five-minute skits pitching ideas for discovering oil and gas.

In one skit, a naked employee ran on stage to catch the boss’s attention, say two people who attended. Another featured a mock episode of the Jerry Springer show, the incendiary daytime TV talk program. A third, after a bit of fun and games, promised to extract large quantities of natural gas cheaply from seemingly declining Dutch fields. read more
