Shell win Public Eye ‘shame’ award at Davos from online voters

Shell won the public vote by a wide margin among 41,800 online voters, the two groups said, singling out its “highly risky search for fossil fuels in the fragile Arctic”.

MENAFN – AFP – 24/01/2013

(MENAFN – AFP) Campaigners at Davos on Thursday awarded their annual Public Eye shame awards to Goldman Sachs and Shell “for particularly glaring cases of companies’ greed for profit and environmental sins”.

At an “award ceremony” on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, the Swiss chapter of Greenpeace and the Berne Declaration said Goldman Sachs had won the jury prize, while Shell had been chosen by online voters for the public award. read more

Last year’s 198 spills were due to bunkering or operational incidents, the data showed. Spills and pipeline sabotage can lead to force measures and loading delays.

Ukraine Signs Drilling Deal With Shell for Shale Gas

By STANLEY REED: Published: January 24, 2013

LONDON — Royal Dutch Shell, the largest oil company in Europe, has signed a contract to drill for natural gas in Ukraine.

The company’s chief executive, Peter Voser, and the Ukrainian president, Viktor F. Yanukovich, signed a production agreement Thursday for the potentially prolific Yuzivska gas field in the eastern part of the country. The signing took place at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Winning an active Shell drilling program is a potential boon for Ukraine, which is thought to be one of the best bets in Europe for so-called shale gas and tight gas. Such gas, found in porous underground shale rock, is usually withdrawn through the process known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. The technique is controversial, because of the potential environmental effects, but Ukraine is more politically receptive to it than some other countries. read more

Royal Dutch Shell a pioneer in blacklisting

CURRENT NEWS – BLACKLISTING: As could be expected, Shell was a pioneer in this evil, sinister and totally unethical conduct, detailed in an article we published 2 years ago: “Shell’s North Sea history of safety violations, blackmail and blacklisting.” 

By John Donovan

“At last the scandal of the illegal blacklisting of so-called troublesome workers in the building industry is getting the attention it deserves.”

(extract from Daily Mirror article published 24 Jan 2013)

“There should be a full inquiry into allegations of “shameful and insidious” blacklisting of workers on projects such as Crossrail and the Olympics. Labour’s Michael Meacher said blacklisting was the “worst human rights breach in the UK since the war”. During the Labour-led debate, Shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna said what had happened was “nothing short than a national scandal” and workers deserved honesty.” read more
