Shell investigates leak in Niger delta

Shell is facing legal action in a UK court on behalf of 11,000 members of the Niger delta Bodo community, who say the company is responsible for spilling 500,000 barrels in 2008. Shell has admitted liability for two spills in the Bodo region but estimates the volume is far lower.

This is the first time the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board has acknowledged the validity of arguments that Shell is shirking its responsibilities since the agency ordered Shell to clean the 50-acre property more than two years ago. The latest order comes just a few weeks after the Carson City Council declared a local environmental emergency at the housing development, which sits on land that housed an oil tank from the 1920s to 1960s. Large amounts of waste oil seeped into the ground beneath the tract. read more
