Pumps are being refurbished and 4,400 tonnes of steel has been cut up into “coupons” ready to be sold.

Current owner Able UK is even selling the sand it dug up when it was strengthening the quayside which would receive Brent Delta at its yard in Hartlepool. read more

Lagos — Justice Mojisola Olatoregun, sitting at a Federal High Court in Lagos has dismissed a suit by Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company Ltd challenging the imposition of $3.6billion fine on it by the Federal Government.

The court resolved all the issues in the defendant’s favour and dismissed the suit.

Shell sued the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA), challenging its powers to impose levies or fines over oil spills.

The plaintiff prayed the court to declare that NOSDRA cannot, in the light of Section 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the 1999 Constitution, validly exercise any powers under Section 5, 6, 7 and 19 of the NOSDRA Act. read more

Practitioners are divided over whether an agreement between Shell and the Dutch tax administration breaks EU government aid rules.

The debate has heated up in recent days after an article released June 18 by a Dutch academic claimed Royal Dutch Shell Plc avoided a tax on dividends by routing shares through a trust in the Channel Island of Jersey.

Shell didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

The company received permission to use the structure in 2005 during a merger of its British and Dutch parent companies, but the agreement may have violated Dutch withholding tax rules, according to the article, written by Jan van de Streek, a professor at the University of Amsterdam. read more
