ROYAL DUTCH SHELL ‘TOUCH F*** ALL’ APPROACH TO OFFSHORE DRILLING

Screen Shot 2014-08-28 at 12.59.38A safety audit on the Brent Bravo platform in 1999 led by Bill Campbell exposed a “Touch F*** All” culture with safety records routinely falsified. The damning audit report was passed to then Shell EP director Malcolm Brinded, who made promises to remedy the situation that were not kept. Instead Brinded decided to put profits before safety. Hence the subsequent deadly explosion followed by a cover-up at the highest level of Royal Dutch Shell.

The global firesale of Shell assets continues with the sale of four oil fields in Nigeria for $5 billion

The FT states: Shell’s phlegmatic chief executive Ben van Beurden will need to hold his nose when he takes the money… and in a related article, describes Shell’s actions as a “retreat from the Niger Delta” (apparently triggered in part by militancy, violence and bunkering).
