Royal Dutch Shell will spend more than $1 billion this year developing one of Iraq major oilfields, where it will resume operations on May 1, officials said on Saturday.

“The figure for the budget will exceed one billion dollars,” said Mehdi Badi, the head of the joint management committee for the field.

The Majnoon field was shut down in June for maintenance and to bring new production facilities online.

When it comes back on stream, initial output will be 100,000barrels per day (bpd), which will quickly rise to 200,000, Oil Minister Abdul Kareem Luaibi said on Saturday. read more

As you well know, there is great interest in the case against Royal Dutch Shell Plc., for complicity in torture, murder, and other crimes against humanity, and now pending before the US Supreme Court.

For those who are interested I would recommend the book: The Nuremberg Legacy, by Norbert Ehrenfreund, a retired California Superior Court Judge. This book discusses the legacy of the Nuremberg Trials and how they have influenced US law. He also discusses several of the cases being tried under the Alien Tort Statute and how the precedents set at the Nuremberg Trials have influenced the decisions of US Courts. Most importantly he makes note of the fact that although the Nuremberg Trials were foreign in nature, the US Supreme Court will recognize and use the precedents set by those trials so long ago. read more
