Shell caught in storm on South Bank

THE TIMES: TUESDAY, 10 September 2013

By Deirdre Hipwell

Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar are facing a multimillion-pound bill to defend their proposed redevelopment of the Shell Centre in Central London after a public inquiry was called.

The developers’ plan to create a large commercial and residential campus next to the London Eye was dealt a blow after Nick Boles, the Planning Minister, “called it in” last week, catching both the market and Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, by surprise.

The Times understands that Mr Johnson was furious… read more

Brent Bravo Deaths: Information supplied today to Shell and the Police

Screen Shot 2013-09-09 at 17.59.46The first article is attached which I would ask John Donovan if he could kindly print this on his website on 11th September.  In separate correspondence I will pass you the Shell evidence from 1999/2003 which is then cross compared with the prosecution findings and the public inquiry.  In all, 4 or 5 articles will be published which will support the case that Director’s of Shell were culpable in relation to the deaths, and that HSE officials were, by the examination of their own evidence, involved with Misconduct in Public Office. Perhaps the most damaging will be… Shell accepts retention of mentally unstable Manager contributed to offshore deaths…

RECEIVED TODAY FROM MR BILL CAMPBELL, RETIRED HSE GROUP AUDITOR, SHELL INTERNATIONAL. MR CAMPBELL HAS ALSO SENT THE SAME INFORMATION TO ROYAL DUTCH SHELL AND GRAMPIAN POLICE. MR CAMPBELL IS A NORTH SEA EP PLATFORM SAFETY EXPERT, OFTEN CITED IN THE PRESS AND ON TV

We approach the 10 year anniversary of the deaths of Sean McCue and Keith Moncrieff on Brent Bravo on 11 September 2003.  Evidence led at the public Inquiry insinuated they were in part responsible for their own deaths since they carried out work without a permit. During the recent anniversary of Piper Alpha I was approached by a number of journalists to make comment in general re the effectiveness of the safety case regime and I plan to publish a number of articles and provide them with the evidence that they were misled in 2006, a number of journalists lost their jobs, or left their current employer, for daring to go up against the mighty Shell, so I can assure you there is no love lost.  After the investigation by the Procurator Fiscal – read more

Shell corruption scandal that won’t go away

Although numerous people including at Shell and the Garda have been named on this website in connection with the Corrib gas corruption scandal, still no defamation proceedings have been issued against me or OSSL?

Many companies within the Royal Dutch Shell Group have issued defamation proceedings for alleged defamation in articles published on this website, but not even the hint of any such action on this occasion. It is not as if Shell is short of lawyers. It has an in-house army currently being reshuffled by Peter Rees QC. Michael Coates has been appointed as Shell’s new head of legal in the UK. Hans von der Linde is general counsel for Shell’s global downstream business, and currently leads a team of 300 people based in 40 countries. read more

Worker killed at Corrib gas tunnel

A contractor has been killed almost 2km (1.2 miles) underground as he worked on the controversial Corrib gas tunnel.

Gardai and the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) have launched separate investigations into the accident, which happened under Sruwaddacon Bay near Aughoose in north Mayo.

The German man, who was single and aged in his 20s, was part of the maintenance support crew employed by Herrenknecht, the manufacturers of the tunnel-boring machine.

He sustained fatal head injuries in the accident just before 9am at the font end of the Corrib tunnel 1.8km (1.1 miles) underground.

Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL) expressed its sincere condolences to the family and co-workers of the man. read more
