Update on cyber-espionage attacks

Screen Shot 2013-03-20 at 17.41.41By John Donovan: High tech sophisticated attacks are still targeting this website every few minutes, day and night. Someone with very deep pockets continues to spend a lot of time and resources trying to disrupt and thwart our activities. The associated threats also continue. I wonder when whoever is responsible will realise that their efforts are counter-productive? The underhand cowardly attacks and the related intimidation only makes us more determined to continue operating this entirely non-commercial website focused on the activities of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. Shell has denied any involvement or knowledge of the covert activity. We are aware that Shell has been in past contact with the National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance in Pittsburgh (of which Shell is a member) in an attempt to block our outspoken activities. This was triggered by Shell Oil Company in a panicked reaction to our contact with Bill O’Reilly of Fox News regarding Shell’s linkage with Iran – an extremely sensitive subject.  read more

BY LIAM DENNING OF THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: Chevron, Shell and Big Oil’s Big Divide

Chevron just took silver. That offers gold for investors. A decade ago, Chevron’s market capitalization of $70 billion was half the size of Royal Dutch Shell’s. This year, though, Chevron has opened up a lead: Worth $232 billion, it is now the second largest of the Western oil majors, trumping Shell’s $215 billion. It isn’t first time Chevron has overtaken Shell; it nudged ahead briefly in the depths of the financial crisis and last October. But this lead looks more sustainable—and points to important differences in the two oil majors’ strategies and performance. read more

Shell reveals Iranian oil trade loss, $2.3 bln Iran debt

By John Donovan: Despite giving the impression to the contrary, as this Reuters article confirms, Royal Dutch Shell has continued funding a fanatical regime intent on the extermination of the Jewish people. Iran is bent on developing nuclear weapons to destroy Israel, finishing the job that Shell’s former Nazi partners embarked upon, killing millions of Jews in the Holocaust. Shell is now caught in a difficult situation caused by its own machinations and greed.

* Made loss on Iranian oil trading shortly before embargo

* Cannot pay $2.3 bln to Tehran due to sanctions

* Previous attempts to settle debt failed to get approval

By Dmitry Zhdannikov

LONDON, March 20 (Reuters) – Oil major Royal Dutch Shell lost money trading Iranian crude in 2012 shortly before a European Union embargo and still owes $2.3 billion to Tehran for oil purchases.

The details, revealed in Shell regulatory filings, is the first disclosure of its dealings with Iran in 2012, when it kept buying Tehran’s oil right up to the mid-year EU embargo deadline. read more

Shell CEO Peter Voser and the Arctic Fiasco

Screen Shot 2013-03-20 at 09.53.55 In February 2011, Peter Voser, who can be compared with Custer for leading an ill-advised charge, was becoming irate about the delays stating: “I’m not prepared to take the uncertainty and pay the money and then not get to the drilling,”; “We need urgent and timely action on permitting to go ahead with the 2012 drilling program.”

By John Donovan

It is appropriate, in view of Shell’s Arctic debacle, properly condemned by the U.S. government, to reflect on the campaign by Shell to lead the anticipated exploration charge into the pristine Arctic/Alaskan waters.

Shell promised that it was fully prepared and pressed heavily to get underway, steamrolling serious misgivings by many parties.

Shell took an aggressive approach to such opposition, obtaining an injunction against Greenpeace to prevent any interference.

As has become abundantly clear, Shell was wrong and those with misgivings were proved right. read more
