Shell is developing its major Cardamom oil and gas field in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. 

By John Donovan

A Shell employee, Danny Hanna discovered accounting irregularities while working at Shell Exploration and Production as Cost Management Lead on the Cardamom project. 

His supervisor was moving funds and deleting numbers to falsify reports to senior management and these false reports were subsequently delivered to the board of directors. The numbers consisted of miscalculations in estimates in the funding required to build and complete Subsea Tiebacks in the Gulf of Mexico, Shell Project Cardamom Deep. According to legal documents, the false reporting amounted to $750,000,000.00 plus dollars. read more

BloombergBusinessweek article by Jeremy Hodge published Friday 20 June 2014

A Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) subsidiary said it won a preliminary ruling in a U.K. court against thousands of Nigerians who say their land, rivers and wetlands were spoiled by two oil spills in the Niger River delta in 2008.

Judge Robert Akenhead ruled today that a Nigerian law, the Oil Pipelines Act, is adequate for compensating for spills, limiting the scope of the U.K. litigation to an assessment of actual damages caused, the company said in a statement today.

The lawsuit against Shell’s Nigerian subsidiary was filed by residents of the coastal Bodo community in 2012 after two spills on the Bomu-Bonny Pipeline in 2008, Shell said. read more

Shell in the US courts again for alleged theft of trade secrets

Screen Shot 2014-06-10 at 19.31.34 John  Donovan

A notice is prominently displayed on my website royaldutchshellplc.com warning against disclosing ideas to Royal Dutch Shell without taking every possible precaution. The websites creation a decade ago was prompted by Shell stealing ideas from me during the 1990’s.

Shell subsequently set up schemes – GameChanger and Ideas360 – to vacuum up ingenious ideas on an industrial scale. In other words, to get its hands on as many novel ideas as possible. 

Students have been enticed with promises of finance and even the chance to win prizes. read more

The Real Reason Shell Halted Its Ukrainian Shale Operations

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Extract from an OilPrice.com article by Igor Alexeev published 19 June 2014

Royal Dutch Shell has blamed air strikes by the government in Kiev against its own citizens in southern Ukraine as the reason it decided to declare a halt to its shale oil projects in the troubled region. In reality, the truth may be closer to the fact that company is disappointed with the economic viability of what it once thought was a large shale deposit and is looking for a way out. According to a recent statement by the former head of Royal Dutch Shell, Peter Voser, “the company is now analyzing its business in shale,” which, translated from the streamlined language of press releases, means: The project is not earning its keep and we need to do something (Read: write off expenses).
