Shell verdict will determine whether other firms could be tried for oil spills

…the reality is that despite condemnation by the UN Environment programme in 2011, despite Nigerian government promises, NGO fury and mounting despair in the communities, Shell’s oil spills go on, the gas flaring continues and the people of the delta remain as poor as ever. The verdict is due tomorrow.

People affected in the Niger delta have come to Europe to ask for justice as multinationals dismiss their claims with impunity

There’s not much left of Goi, an Ogoni village on the Niger delta.

When I went there two years ago large parts of it and the surrounding land still hadn’t recovered from a series of spills of Shell oil that had taken place in 2004. Most Goi people had been farmers and fishermen, but they had mostly moved out because the water, the houses, the mud in the creeks all still reeked of crude.

I had met Eric Dooh whose family comes from Goi, and who has spent years fighting Shell for compensation. This week he’s in Amsterdam representing his father and on Wednesday, he and three other farmers from other parts of the polluted Niger delta will hear the verdict of a Dutch court on the case. read more

Shell, Kinder Morgan to jointly export LNG from the United States

Mon Jan 28, 2013 9:10am EST

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSa.L) said it will tie up with Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI.N) to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) from a terminal near Savannah, Georgia.

El Paso Pipeline Partners LP (EPB.N), a Kinder Morgan unit, and Shell will form a limited liability company to develop a natural gas liquefaction plant at Southern LNG Co LLC’s existing terminal.

Recent drilling innovations have unlocked vast shale oil and gas reserves, placing the United States in a position to be a major exporter. A number of companies, including Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N), have lined up to get permission to sell the country’s cheap abundant natural gas overseas, where it can fetch much higher prices. read more
