Shell Corruption in Nigeria

Screen Shot 2013-02-15 at 09.15.38More evidence has emerged to show that global oil giants, Shell and ENI, were very much aware that they were paying over a billion dollars to an ex-con in a shady deal over a Nigerian oil bloc.; An email presented during the trial also mentioned that the Shell official who feted with Mr Etete would refer to someone in The Hague known as “Peter” over the terms of the deal. Curiously, Shell’s CEO is named Peter Voser. Mr. Voser has not responded to questions sent by our partner, Global Witness, a U.K. based international organisation committed to transparency and accountability in the global extractive industry, on whether he is the “Peter” mentioned in the email.

By Nicholas Ibekwe, 11 March 2013

More evidence has emerged to show that global oil giants, Shell and ENI, were very much aware that they were paying over a billion dollars to an ex-con in a shady deal over a Nigerian oil bloc.

Despite insisting that they had no previous knowledge that a huge chunk of the $1.1billion (N155 billion) they paid to the Nigerian government for oil block OPL-245 will be transferred to Malabu Oil, owned by convicted felon Dan Etete, proceedings from a recent U.K. High Court case shows that Shell, and Italian energy giant, ENI, were aware of the final destination of the money. read more

UK Shale Gas Numbers Could Be Stratospheric

By Peter C Glover

EXTRACTS

Should we? Shouldn’t we? While Europe dithers over whether the blatant economic success of the US shale gas ‘miracle’ will translate to these shores, the UK Government has been slightly more pro-shale active. But, while the threat of (liberal democrat-instituted) over-regulation still casts a shadow, the pro-shale (mostly conservative) wing of government looks set for a stratospheric boost.

For the second time in the last couple of months, the London Times reports industry sources as claiming the upcoming British Geological Survey’s (BGS) official assessment of UK shale reserves, due next month, will be “increased dramatically”.  If the report is to be believed, the figures being touted for domestic reserves could well prove to be a dazzling “200 times greater than experts previously believed”.  read more
