Greenpeace climate justice activists board and occupy Shell platform en route to major oilfield with message: ‘STOP DRILLING. START PAYING.’

Greenpeace International: 31 Jan 2023

Amsterdam, Netherlands – Greenpeace activists from Argentina, Turkey, the US and the UK have boarded a Shell contracted vessel in the Atlantic Ocean with a banner bearing the message: “Stop Drilling. Start Paying”.

Just two days ahead of Shell’s profits announcement, four Greenpeace International activists boarded the White Marlin vessel at sea north of the Canary Islands in a peaceful protest against the climate devastation around the world caused by Shell and the wider fossil fuel industry, without paying a penny towards loss and damage. read more

‘Get a grip’ Shell told, as it racks up the most broadband complaints (again)

THE SUNDAY TIMES

‘Get a grip’ Shell told, as it racks up the most broadband complaints (again)

Extracts from an article by Ellie McDonald published on Sunday 29 Jan 2023 (Page 15)

Shell Energy has been told to “get a grip” after a surge in broadband and landline complaints.

The telecoms regulator Ofcom also said it was monitoring the firm’s performance because its complaints volume remains far higher than its rivals.

Shell Energy, which started providing broadband in 2016, had 27 complaints per 100,000 broadband customers between July and September 2022 and 20 complaints per 100,000 landline customers. It was also the worst in the previous three months, when it received 31 and 23 complaints per 100,000 customers respectively.

Shell Energy Broadband said: “Ofcom’s table reflects our position up to six months ago. Since then we have invested heavily and made big strides in our processes.

We’re confident that these will be reflected when Ofcom releases its results for the current period.” read more

‘Record’ profits likely to spark renewed calls for windfall taxes

Energy giant Shell is set to announce record annual net profits of more than £32.3billion at its results on Thursday, on the back of high gas and oil prices.

By GEOFF HO:

The bumper profits expected from Britain’s oil majors is likely to spark renewed calls for windfall taxes.

Howard Cox, founder of campaign group FairFuelUK, said action is needed from the Government to stop oil groups “ripping off motorists” and adding to the cost-of-living crisis.

He added: “In a time of huge inflation, striving so hard in order to fill up your essential car, van, or truck at a Shell garage, you can be comforted you have helped double this global oil
giant’s already mega profits.

“It is even more sickening that forecourts like Costco can sell petrol and diesel so much cheaper, 10p to 20p per litre less than Shell. read more

Having made multiple requests over an eight month period, for a new smart meter due to mine not working, they finally installed a new meter which also does not work. I’ve received conflicting information as to next steps and they have little interest in fixing this.
They take out their own choice of direct debit each month, in spite of me setting this to a higher amount via their website.

Netherlands To Shut Down Europe’s Largest Gas Field

Netherlands To Shut Down Europe’s Largest Gas Field

The Dutch government plans to close the Groningen gas field this year despite Europe’s precarious supply position. Groningen is the largest gas field in Europe.

The field is dangerous, a government official from the Hague told the Financial Times, and the government has no plans to boost production from it.

“We won’t open up more because of the safety issues,” Hans Vijbrief told the FT. “It is politically totally unviable. But apart from that, I’m not going to do it because it means that you increase the chances of earthquakes, which I don’t want to be responsible for.” read more

Shell to spend $450m on carbon offsetting as fears grow that credits may be worthless

Shell to spend $450m on carbon offsetting as fears grow that credits may be worthless

The fossil fuel firm Shell has set aside more than $450m (£367m) to invest in carbon offsetting projects, and plans to spend the equivalent of half the current market for nature offsets every year, the Guardian can reveal.

But a joint investigation by the Guardian, Die Zeit and Source Material into Verra, the world’s leading carbon standard for the rapidly growing $2bn voluntary offsets market, has found, based on analysis of a significant percentage of the projects, that more than 90% of their rainforest offset credits – among the most commonly used by companies – are likely to be “phantom credits” and do not represent genuine carbon reductions. read more

Prelude FLNG Loads Out First Cargo Since Fire

by Bojan Lepic| Rigzone Staff| Wednesday, January 18, 2023

Even though Shell has not confirmed any restart on its massive Prelude FLNG, Reuters reported that the Methane Becki Anne LNG tanker has begun loading.

The Methane Becki Anne was the first LNG tanker to berth at Shell’s Prelude floating LNG site off Western Australia since it was shut down after a fire.

According to Reuters, the LNG carrier vessel berthed at the Prelude plant on January 17, Refinitiv ship-tracking data showed. Refinitiv’s data also showed that LNG has already begun loading. read more

Utterly useless. Worst internet provider I have ever experienced. And I use the term provider in the loosest sense of the term, as they provide very little. Signed up to 70mbps deal which promises a minimum of 40 at any time. Here’s what I get: download on Steam or blizzard servers, on an ethernet cable connected desktop, plugged directly to the router, 1mbps download speed. Absolute peak connection speed I have seen on anything, was on the PS4 speed test, max 3.5 Mbps. You can forget gaming with shell internet. I drop out completely at least once an hour. You can barely browse the internet. Forget online auctions, you wont stay connected long enough. What they are delivering isn’t even 5% of what was promised. Utter shambles. Do not use. read more

No problems when with the Post Office but now continual problems with Shell broadband speed and its continuity. I’m supposed to receive a speed between 35 Mbs and 45 Mbs. I get as low as 11 Mbs. I complain for which one has to wait around 30 mins for someone to answer the phone. I’m told that I must give 3 possible days when an engineer needs to visit but be prepared to be charged if I’m not at home but for which there is no reciprocal arrangement if the engineer doesn’t turn up, which has happened to me. In fact the problem can be solved without an engineer’s visit and this can be undertaken remotely. Then my speed is restored to around 36 Mbs (min for me should be 35) after which it is slowly decreased until I have to complain again. It seems like I’m being robbed of the service I pay for. As it can be quickly reset I believe that it is my ISP who is throttling my speed. Broken contract – new provider here I come. read more

Shell to pay $16m to Nigerian farmers over oil damage

23 Dec 2022

Shell has agreed to pay $16m (£13m) to four Nigerian farmers and their communities to compensate for damage allegedly caused by pollution coming from leaks in its oil pipelines.

The sum was agreed in negotiations between the oil company and campaign group Friends of the Earth.

But it is being given on the basis of “no admission of liability”, a joint statement says.

Nigeria’s oil industry has been a major source of environmental damage. read more

New contract for my 90 year old mother who has dementia and severe memory issues. Broadband was installed for the sole purpose of setting up internal monitoring in her flat so family members could ensure she was safe and well. Decided on a Shell package with home phone and broadband as listed on the MSE website back in August 22. This has honestly been my worst decision ever and would strongly advise anyone NOT to go with Shell, especially as their “customer service” is absolutely diabolical. Ironically my problem lies with the phone line as the broadband has(so far) been working satisfactorily. From the point of activation the phone line ceased to operate. Outgoing calls cut out after entering 3 digits, incoming calls didn’t ring on the handset. There then followed 3 months of infuriating and lengthy holds to Shell customer services plus a multitude of complaint emails with various agents suggesting frankly ridiculous solutions. All that was needed was to get an engineer out to the exchange/green cabinet and check the wiring. Two booked engineer visits went by with no one turning up. When I complained after the last no-show the agent decided to book a further appointment and classify my mother as a “vulnerable” customer. This engineer actually turned up, called me from the now working land line and advised that the wiring in the cabinet was not connected to my mother’s landline. This 5 minute fix took three months to happen. Case closed but no apology or credit for lack of landline. However, have now received bill for two engineer call outs at £60 each, one of which was a no-show. Don’t think we’ll be paying these as problem was outside the home. Shell, stay well clear. read more

Shater vs Shell – Information supplied by an insider

Information of interest to Shell Corporate Security managers in particular and Shell staff generally. 

Supplied by an insider.

Shater’s case against Shell is far from over.

In fact, once his case was assigned to a fierce conservative Republican appointed Texas judge, Shater’s attorneys started working on other judicial avenues. That judge, Andrew Hanen, is a fierce Republican appointed conservative with bizarre anti-immigrant policies. He is also known as the DACA judge – ruling against DACA immigrants throwing the lives of more than 600,000 people in the US into tumult.  The Texas Appeals Court that ruled against Shater is even more conservative with a number of Trump appointees. Discrimination cases were at their lowest level under the Trump administration. read more

Absolutely abysmal shocking customer service from Shell Energy

The content below is sourced from current verifiable customer reviews of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

Absolutely abysmal shocking customer…

Absolutely abysmal shocking customer service. They just keep moving the goal post, no response to your complaint. As a vulnerable person they have no concern whatsoever for you. I contacted Shell in June and the complaint is still unresolved. If you try to call them you just wait for hours and get knowhere, waiting to get this complaint resolved and then I can leave this appalling company. All the profits they make but they treat people like animals. read more

Court rejects Nigeria’s compensation request against Eni, Shell

By  and : November 11, 2022

MILAN, Nov 11 (Reuters) – An appeals court in Milan on Friday rejected Nigeria’s $1.092 billion compensation request against Italian energy group Eni SpA (ENI.MI) and Shell Plc (SHEL.L) in civil proceedings relating to a $1.3 billion oilfield deal.

The decision was read out in court.

In July prosecutors had dropped related criminal proceedings, clearing Eni and Shell, as well as managers including Eni Chief Executive Claudio Descalzi, in one of the oil industry’s biggest alleged corruption cases. read more

This bunch of incompetent, inept idiots took over my fathers broadband from the Post Office. Due to illness in July I cancelled his contract and was told that 13 days of his monthly fee would be reimbursed STILL NOT RECEIVED. A month later they reopened his account and took £40, raised the issue with them, guess what STILL NO REFUND. On 4 occasions I have requested a returns label to send their router back, guess what NO RETURNS LABEL SENT. They have now charged £35 for the router, which I couldn’t return as they do not have the capacity to do something as simple as send out a returns label. Look for a bunch of incompetent cowboys to provide your broad back, they’ll still be better than Shell. read more

Shell handed £90m by taxpayers to cut energy bills under price guarantee

The payments are one part of a major Government package to shield households

Shell has been handed £90m of taxpayer cash under the Government’s scheme to help families with surging energy bills.

The oil and gas giant’s UK household supply division received £90,141,141 from the Government in October, according to official figures.

All suppliers are being sent cash by the Government each month so they can shave £400 off customers’ bills in instalments between now and March. read more

SHELL ENERGY BROADBAND NIGHTMARE

Shell Energy Broadband Reviews recently posted on broadband.co.uk

Reviewer Clare Watson: Location Loughborough: Date 2022-10-19

Comments

DONT GO WITH SHELL – it should have zero stars. A series of looping automated online systems and a call back system that was designed to call me and instantly hang up meant it was almost impossible for me to get through to make a complaint. When I did I found out that Shell Customer Services is outsourced to a company or companies with employees in other countries who have no interest at all in Shell’s reputation or indeed providing a service to their customers. I was given a series of contradictory instructions re returning a router which I had done using the original label provided when I joined 3 years ago. I suspect that the address on the labels then has now changed – whatever I was charged for a router anyway because it supposedly failed to arrive. Four weeks had lapsed and by this time I had lost the proof of sending. To actually send that proof now would be extremely difficult since as above the looping system is designed to make it impossible to fill the boxes to enable you to submit a communication.

Shell pays no UK windfall tax despite profits jump

Shell pays no UK windfall tax despite profits jump

By Michael Race: Business reporter, BBC News: 27 Oct 2022

Shell has reported its second highest quarterly profit on record but it has not paid the UK’s windfall tax on energy firms.

The energy giant said global profits reached $9.5bn (£8.2bn) between July and September, compared to $4.2bn during the same period last year.

However, Shell said that because it had made large investments in the UK, it meant it had made no profit here.

It also does not expect to start paying windfall taxes until early next year.

The Energy Price Levy – or windfall tax – on the profits of energy firms was announced by Rishi Sunak in May, when he was chancellor. At the time he said it would raise £5bn in its first year. read more

Shell in talks with Government as ministers consider new windfall tax

Oil and gas giant did not pay any tax in Britain, despite an existing windfall scheme

By Rachel Millard: 27 October 2022 • 5:48pm

Shell is in talks with the Government as ministers consider a fresh windfall tax on oil and gas companies to help fill a £35bn black hole in the public finances.

Ben van Buerden, chief executive of the oil and gas giant, said he accepted the case for higher taxes after the industry was boosted by surging fossil fuel prices following Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. read more

Malabu Oil Scandal

Malabu Oil Scandal

October 18, 2022

The Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) has strongly condemned Italy for recent judgments that now place Italy at odds with the OECD’s Anti-Bribery Convention.

An Italian court sitting in Milan had a few months ago acquitted energy companies, Eni and Royal Dutch Shell along with a series of past and present managers, including Eni Chief Executive, Claudio Descalzi in one of the oil industry’s biggest corruption scandals.

The trial judge held that the companies and defendants had been discharged as there was no case to answer.

Italian prosecutors had alleged corruption in the deal while campaigners said the Federal Government of Nigeria was short-changed in the deal. They said $1.1 billion of the purchase price was siphoned off to politicians and middlemen, including the then Minister of Petroleum, Dan Etete.

They also called for Eni and Shell to be fined and for a number of past and present managers from both companies, including Descalzi, to be jailed.

The defendants all denied any wrongdoing. They said the purchase price for OPL 245 was paid into a Nigerian government account and subsequent transfers were beyond their control. read more

Ben van Beurden also warns against EU moves to cap price of gas and electricity to protect consumers

Alex Lawson Energy correspondent: Tue 4 Oct 2022 12.35 BST: Last modified on Tue 4 Oct 2022 12.48 BST

The chief executive of Shell has said governments may need to tax energy companies further to fund efforts to protect the “poorest” people from soaring bills.

Ben van Beurden, the outgoing boss of the oil and gas company, told an energy conference in London: “One way or another there needs to be government intervention. Protecting the poorest, that probably may then mean that governments need to tax people in this room to pay for it.

“I think we just have to accept as a society – it can be done smartly and not so smartly. There is a discussion to be had about it but I think it’s inevitable.” read more
