Dear Mr Brandjes

Several months ago, I publicly accused OSSL directors of bombarding Shell with blackmail demands for two years over the Shell sponsored corruption scandal in Ireland.

OSSL directors admitted supplying “gifts” on behalf of its client Shell EP Ireland to various parties, including the Irish police, to smooth the troubled path of the Corrib Gas Project.

One apparently legitimate OSSL invoice to Shell was for £30,000 of free booze showered on Irish cops accused of acting brutally towards “Shell To Sea” campaigners. read more

LONDON (Reuters) – Shell has no timeline to restart the Seibou 2 wellhead in Nigeria that it closed in January after it leaked 550 barrels of crude oil, a spokeswoman said on Friday.

The company said it closed the well, which is operated by Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria (SPDC), roughly 15 hours after the leak was detected.

The spill impacted 300,000 square metres of water surface, an area roughly the size of 42 football pitches, in Bayelsa State. read more

In-house: Shell appoints successors to litigation and downstream GC roles

This article may be of interest to parties contemplating or in litigation with Royal Dutch Shell. Details who is in and out at the top of the Shell’s in-house army of 750 lawyers. Definite hint of intrigue. This follows the sudden departure of Peter Rees QC in foggy circumstances involving Ben van Beurden

Extracts

Royal Dutch Shell has made two significant internal promotions to its in-house legal function, with associate general counsel (GC) for litigation Richard Hill (pictured) appointed to succeed Brad Nielson as GC for global litigation, while Martin Bambridge, currently associate GC for the energy giant’s downstream portfolio, will take over from downstream legal chief, Hans von der Linde.

Announced internally yesterday (5 March), both Hill and Bambridge will take up their new positions on 1 April and 1 May respectively. Both Nielson and von der Linde are leaving the energy giant, although Shell refused to comment on their destination or why they were leaving the company. read more

Police block striking refinery workers from entering Shell Houston HQ

(Reuters) – Police blocked several hundred striking laborers from entering Shell Oil Co’s downtown Houston headquarters during a protest on Friday to demand a new labor contract for U.S. refinery workers.

Officers quickly moved to guard entrances to the 50-story building as the workers climbed stairs leading to public doorways. There were no arrests or scuffles.

“We wanted to see if they would talk to us about the negotiations,” said Lee Medley, president of United Steelworkers union (USW) local 13-1, which represents workers striking at Marathon Petroleum Corp’s Galveston Bay, Texas, Refinery and Shell’s joint-venture Deer Park, Texas Refinery. read more
