LYNN N. HUGHES, District Judge.

1. Introduction.

Beginning in 1998, James G. Wood told Shell Oil Company about designs to use smaller-diameter equipment for drilling in deep water. In 2004, the United States Patent Office awarded Peter Azancot a patent on drilling a small-bore well in deep water. Wood asserts that he is the sole inventor of the technology in Azancot’s patent.

Trawling the Internet seeking information about Court cases involving Shell, we stumbled across details of current litigation in the U.S. Courts against Shell International for alleged theft of Intellectual Property.

I personally know of several High Court Actions successfully brought against Shell on the same grounds, all by me. All resulted in media coverage.

Is Shell not concerned that it must be losing out from parties no longer willing to disclose ideas to the group because of its reputation as a serial poacher and predator of Intellectual Property? read more
