ANDREW BURRELL AND PAUL GARVEY: JANUARY 02, 2014

ROYAL Dutch Shell’s new chief executive, Ben van Beurden, could move within weeks to order a sale of the oil giant’s unwanted $7.4 billion stake in Woodside Petroleum, a move likely to attract interest from some of the world’s biggest sovereign wealth funds.

More than three years after Shell sold down an initial $3.3bn stake in Woodside, speculation is building that Mr van Beurden, who formally took over from Peter Voser yesterday, will move to sell the remainder of its 23.1 per cent interest in the Perth-based oil and gas producer. read more

Shell Still Aims For Arctic Oil Drilling Despite Mishaps

Exactly a year ago, an oil rig being towed to Seattle ran aground on a remote island in the Gulf of Alaska. The New Year’s Eve accident capped a year of trouble for Shell Oil in Alaska and in Puget Sound.

Shell is still seeking federal approval to drill in the Arctic, and a critical ship in Shell’s Arctic fleet is still sitting idle on the Bellingham, Wash., waterfront.

Shell’s spying was not restricted merely to its  perceived enemies, such as Greenpeace. Shell has even spied on it own employees, all of them.

By John Donovan

A recently published 54 page report by Gary Ruskin – Spooky Business : Corporate Espionage Against Nonprofit Organizations – focuses on corporate espionage carried out by major companies against non-profit organizations, activists and whistleblowers.

On page 3, Shell is named as one of the major companies that has engaged in such activity:

Many of the world’s largest corporations and their trade associations — including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Walmart, Monsanto, Bank of America, Dow Chemical, Kraft, Coca- Cola, Chevron, Burger King, McDonald’s, Shell, BP, BAE, Sasol, Brown & Williamson and E.ON — have been linked to espionage or planned espionage against nonprofit organizations, activists and whistleblowers. read more
