Lawrence of Alaska joins Stone Energy Corp

By John Donovan

On 21 March 2013 we broke the news that David Lawrence, the Royal Dutch Shell executive most directly responsible for Shell’s infamous “screw up” in Alaska had been fired.

This was possibly in an attempt to save his incompetent bosses, Marvin Odum and Peter Voser, from the same fate.

Voser later took early retirement.

It has been announced today that Lawrence has joined Stone Energy Corporation.

Shell unethical, incompetent and greedy

Screen Shot 2013-01-25 at 01.00.51In 1996, I received an unsolicited letter of apology from Dr Chris Fay, the Chairman & Chief Executive of Shell U.K. Limited for the way we had been treated by Shell. It is printed below. This came at the climax of 3 high court actions we brought against Shell for breach of confidence and breach of contract, all settled in our favour. He was not amused by our whole page announcements in trade magazines of surveys about Shell involving over 1,000 Shell retailers in the UK.

In 1996, I received an unsolicited letter of apology from Dr Chris Fay, the Chairman & Chief Executive of Shell U.K. Limited for the way we had been treated by Shell. It is printed below. This came at the climax of 3 high court actions we brought against Shell for breach of confidence and breach of contract, all settled in our favour. 

Some time previously I had a nearly 2 hour meeting with Dr Fay at Shell Mex-House – just the two of us, served tea by his butler. He was not amused by our whole page announcements in trade magazines of surveys about Shell involving over 1,000 Shell retailers in the UK. I was a co-founder of the Shell Corporate Conscience Pressure Group, which commissioned the surveys.

News items of interest to Shell

In view of its past horrendous track record of dealing with a whistleblower (buried alive in multiple defamation actions, multiple injunctions, threat of imprisonment etc) and the fact that Shell was a pioneer in evil, sinister blacklisting activities, Shell is likely to be interested in these current news stories…

1.  WHISTLEBLOWER BOUNTIES:

The Financial Times carries the story that the Home Office in the UK is considering a US-style system in which corporate whistleblowers are paid a proportion of the penalties paid by companies. The suggestion was apparently buried deep in the policy document announcing the launch of the new National Crime Agency earlier this week.

1.  BUILDING BLACKLIST:

The construction firms – Balfour Beatty, Carillion, Costain, Kier, Laing O’Rourke, Sir Robert McAlpine, Skanska UK and Vinci – have apologised for their involvement with the company that held the blacklist, The Consulting Association. But they have not admitted liability. read more

Shell shuts Nigeria pipeline again, 150,000 bpd deferred

 Screen Shot 2012-12-10 at 18.46.44Shell Nigeria said on Wednesday it had shut down its Trans Niger Pipeline (TNP) owing to reports of leaks… The latest leaks were reported at B-Dere, Nonwa-Tai, and Bodo West, all in Ogoniland. Shell blames oil thieves for almost all leakages, although environmental campaigners say a failure to replace its decrepit 50-year-old equipment are as much to blame as sabotage.

(Reuters) – Shell Nigeria (RDSa.L) said on Wednesday it had shut down its Trans Niger Pipeline (TNP) owing to reports of leaks, deferring 150,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil just 10 days after the pipeline was re-opened.

“(Shell Nigeria) shut the line as a precautionary measure … and has also mobilised a spill response team,” Shell Nigeria spokesman Precious Okolobo said in an email to Reuters.

He added the cause of the leak was under investigation. read more
