Bogs and Booze

Screen Shot 2012-11-12 at 15.56.19John Donovan of royaldutchshellplc.com who, along with his father, Alfred, worked with Shell up until the early 1990s, has pointed to the reluctance of Shell to take court proceedings against OSSL and of An Garda Siochana to investigate as very curious: “It would follow that if the allegations are false and the items on the invoice false then, bearing in mind that OSSL has been pressing Shell for payment on false grounds, Shell must surely be legally bound as a public company to call in the Garda and/or the UK police to immediately investigate the relevant Irish or UK citizens responsible for what would undoubtedly be a very serious criminal act”. read more

PORT HARCOURT, Nigeria, Oct. 18 (UPI) — Royal Dutch Shell is selling off four of its onshore Nigerian oil blocks because of the constant theft of large volumes oil from its pipelines, officials said.The move highlights the West African state’s growing battle with criminal syndicates that are stealing an average of 100,000 barrels of crude a day. That costs the continent’s second largest economy after South Africa up to $1 billion a month, a criminal enterprise on an industrial scale that officials say rivals the narcotics trade as the world’s most lucrative crime.

Oil industry officials and community workers say this massive theft of Nigeria’s key resource involves crooked politicians, security forces, oil industry personnel and oil traders.

There are also militant groups operating in the oil-rich but impoverished Niger Delta, a labyrinth of swamps and creeks that provide cover for the complex network of crime.

“There’s a sophisticated organization,” says Philip Mshelbila, Shell’s chief of communications in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital. “Clearly it’s not just local. There has to be a wide network.” read more

Alaska Dispatch: October 18, 2013

An environmental group opposed to drilling in the sub-Arctic says that Sakhalin Energy has pulled back on plans for two new oil drilling platforms off Sakhalin Island. Pacific Environment says Royal Dutch Shell and Gazprom decided not to move ahead with a new mobile platform in 2014 and delayed a decision on a permanent platform until 2017. Pacific Environment says that the platforms would threaten the survival of the Western Gray Whale, of which there are only about 150 alive. read more
