Shell lobbied the Government to send millions of pounds of weapons to Nigeria that may have fallen into the hands of militants guilty of human rights abuses, a report has warned.

Oil theft in Nigeria cost Shell some £460million in its last set of quarterly results and the Anglo-Dutch firm has sought Government help to deal with the fragile security situation in the West African county.

But sending weapons to Nigerian security forces risks further destabilising a dangerous situation, said campaign group Platform. read more

HOUSTON | Fri Aug 16, 2013 12:45pm EDT

(Reuters) – A new piping problem may force the newest crude distillation unit at Motiva’s Port Arthur refinery, the largest plant in the United States, to run up to 75,000 barrels-per-day below capacity through fall of next year.

Sources familiar with refinery operations said one of the pipes taking crude oil into the 600,000 bpd refinery’s new CDU has suffered continuous vibration problems when it runs at or near full capacity for more than five months. read more

Where is my defamation writ from Shell?

Screen Shot 2013-08-16 at 12.11.02Members of the news media: give Shell and the Garda PR people a call. See if you can obtain a straightforward denial from either that the events revealed in The Observer article took place?  At the moment you are being deceived by trickery into believing that Shell and the Garda are innocent of the charges, when in fact they are guilty as hell.

By John Donovan

As a long term Shell shareholder I demand that Royal Dutch Shell issues a high court writ against the publisher (me) who for many months has repeatedly posted articles online, picked up by Google News, stating as a matter of fact that Shell has corrupted the Irish Police Force, the Garda.

Shell has an army of several hundred in-house lawyers led by Peter Rees QC. Why are they so reticent on this matter?

If Shell is certain that the events that its former Mr Fixit company OSSL says took place, are in fact an invention by OSSL, then it is duty-bound to issue proceedings to defend the companies reputation against these scandalous lies.  read more

There is much evidence to all matters of GIFTING FAVOURS …you have declined an offer to visit the evidence …..perhaps you will have a rethink ……you trashed OSSL to cover your tracks …..but you will not make liars of us in the national press.

“Those systems are now certified. The engineering problems have been overcome,” said James Watson, director of the U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, or BSEE. read more

EPA Exemption for Shell Survives Federal Suit

By TIM HULL OF COURTHOUSE NEWS SERVICE 15 August 2013

(CN) – A Shell drilling ship need not face federal air quality standards while it explores the Beaufort Sea off Alaska’s North Slope, the 9th Circuit ruled Thursday.

A host of environmental groups, including the Center for Biological Diversity and the Natural Resources Defense Council, had challenged a permit that the Environmental Protection Agency reasonably granted Shell Offshore in 2011, allowing the Kulluk ship to “construct, operate, and conduct ‘pollutant emitting activities'” in the Beaufort Sea. read more

OSSL SHELL GARDA CORRUPTION SCANDAL

Screen Shot 2013-05-13 at 17.33.04What started out on a small scale as festive gifts, in later years expanded into an industrial scale operation, rewarding hundreds of Garda officers for their diligent support for Shell, steamrollering all opposition.

EMAIL SENT ON 15 AUGUST 2013 FROM OSSL TO SHELL LEGAL BOSS, PETER REES QC

Dear Mr Peter Rees

I have read your impressive article about Royal Dutch Shell and the Rule of Law.

Do you really mean what you say about fighting corrupt practices and your insistence on honesty, integrity and respect for people by everyone at Shell?

I am sure you have heard of OSSL and our allegations.

Shell says there is no evidence to support them.

This is because Shell EP Ireland ensured that the audit trail evidence was all destroyed. We had to hand over all receipts.

What started out on a small scale as festive gifts, in later years expanded into an industrial scale operation, rewarding hundreds of Garda officers for their diligent support for Shell, steamrollering all opposition. read more
