Banter with Michiel Brandjes of Royal Dutch Shell Plc

By John Donovan

On Friday I sent an email to Mr Michiel Brandjes (right), Company Secretary & General Counsel Corporate of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. It had a subject – “Gannet Oil Spill: Document Authenticity” – but no content.  It was sent by mistake.

It prompted the subsequent self-explanatory email correspondence.

Shell tried to lean on Time Magazine

By John Donovan

Our applications compelling Shell to supply us with Shell internal documents in which we are mentioned, has generated some very revealing information, especially in regards to Shell bullying and manipulating the news media.

We have previously published articles revealing Shell’s intent to “kill” a half-page story about this website that The Sunday Times was on the brink of publishing.

The story was killed.

In 2007 Shell lawyers and media specialists in the USA and Europe were frantic about thwarting our contact with Fox News. As is evident from repetitive fragmented Shell internal correspondence, Shell was panicked about the prospect of Bill O’Reilly taking up our suggestion of Americans boycotting Shell, because of its continued links with the fanatical Iranian regime.

Email to Peter Voser concerning Royal Dutch Shell Nazi Secrets

By John Donovan

Printed below is an email my father sent to Richard Wiseman, Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer at Royal Dutch Shell Plc., which was also sent to Peter Voser, Chief Executive Officer and Michiel Brandjes, Company Secretary/General Counsel Corporate.

The stated subject: Royal Dutch Shell Nazi Secrets.

Knowing that my father is 93, it seems extraordinarily impolite of Mr Wiseman to not even have the courtesy to acknowledge receipt.  Shell has not taken issue with the accuracy of what was stated in the article, nor raised any copyright objections. read more

Shell Pakistan business ethics under attack

Junior employees of Shell Pakistan are scared, as their fate is unclear, as was the case of Shell Ethiopia, Sudan and Djibouti in 2008 and they may also end up being left to protest against being SOLD like slaves.

Dear John Donovan,

I joined Pakistan Burma Shell almost 30 years ago as a fitter. I used to repair dispensers installed at petrol pumps of Pakistan Burma Shell. When Burma Shell was purchased by, Shell Pakistan, all the technicians like me were removed from service without proper benefits, (some cases of which are still pending in court).

Because of that experience, I launched a small firm of my own and started doing repair and minor repair work projects as a contractor at Shell petrol pumps in city of Sargodha Pakistan. read more

Shell Corrib Gas Project flood of leaked internal emails

By John Donovan

I have published below Shell internal emails and minutes of a meeting, all relating to the Shell led Corrib Gas Project in Ireland.

All of the items been supplied by a group of Shell Corrib employees who wish to be known as “Celtic Tiger 5?.

This is what they claim:

We are Celtic Tiger 5 who are current shell employees working in/or for Shell Ireland. We represent HSE, Commercial, IT, Construction and are interested in spreading correct information to the outside world and our fellow citizens in the West. Please feel free to publish this information on your website…

As previously indicated, Shell will be concerned about the prospect of another active subversive employee group within the company following the leak to us in February of the Shell Global Address Book in what was described as the worlds biggest breach of employee details. The leak turned into a global PR black-eye for Shell. read more

A close call for Shell on North Sea platform

On 11 May 2010, just weeks after the Gulf of Mexico disaster, Shell had a very narrow escape on the NAM-L13-FE North Sea platform that could have killed many people. There were 71 persons present at the time of the incident. Fortunately, none were injured. There was however significant damage to the platform.

Article by John Donovan including current related email correspondence with Royal Dutch Shell Plc

On 20 April 2010 an explosion and fire took place on the BP-licensed Transocean drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, located in the Gulf of Mexico. As we all know, the fall out from the explosion has been earthshaking in its ramifications in many directions.

On 27 June 2010, the Guardian published a related article “Shell: deep-water oil drilling will go on” featuring an interview with Peter Voser, the CEO of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. It contained this boast attributed to Mr Voser:

We would not have drilled the well in the same way. We have got other safety procedures across the globe. But I think for some companies there will be some learning from this as well…

In other words, Shell has nothing to learn from the BP disaster. read more

Shell declines to comment on alleged industrial espionage targeting U.S. Navy Dept

Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 09.22.43By John Donovan

Printed below is email correspondence with Mr Richard Wiseman, Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. I am grateful to him for his response.

It seems reasonable to conclude in view of his response, that there is substance to astonishing allegations of Shell industrial espionage in the USA directed at the US Navy Department, involving classified military information.

Mr Wiseman must have checked with his American colleagues before replying, yet has been unable to issue the requested denial – see below – which would have resulted in non-publication. read more

U.K. Parliament Bribery Bill sheiks Shell

On Thursday, the UK House of Commons passed the Bribery Bill, which would make it illegal for companies doing business in the U.K. to bribe government officials.

The U.K. measure goes further than the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act because the legislation, if passed by the House of Lords, will make it illegal to request or accept a bribe. Companies could also face prosecution for failure to prevent bribery by employees.

This development will be of interest to Shell in view of its key involvement in the so called “Scandal of the Century“, for which BAE Systems has recently paid nearly $500 million in fines. read more

Dear Mr White

We safety received the Shell internal documents/emails and your covering letters, all delivered to us by motorbike messenger on Monday evening.

With reference to the documents and emails, we note that Shell has changed the method of censoring the information so that we sometimes have some visual clue to which parts have been removed. However, the censor appears to have got carried away with one Shell internal email, where even the date has been deleted.

£200,000 Legal Aid for Yorkshire Ripper: Zero for war veteran Alfred Donovan sued by Shell

By Alfred Donovan

Appeal: Peter Sutcliffe, shown here after an attack in prison, has launched a High Court bid to be released.

EXTRACT FROM A DAILY MAIL ARTICLE PUBLISHED 2 MARCH 2010:

The Yorkshire Ripper is using taxpayers’ money in an attempt to win his freedom.

Peter Sutcliffe, who murdered 13 women and tried to kill seven more, claims doctors believe he is ‘on the way to being cured’ and no longer poses a risk to the public.

Now 63, he has received legal aid to fund a team of leading barristers in his High Court battle to be released from the secure Broadmoor Hospital. This is likely to run up a bill of £200,000. read more

Shell Ethics Chief involved in bending the truth

We should not give the impression that we are over-concerned with the D’s website, or that management spends a lot of time worrying about it. (Shell)

By John Donovan

I am still studying the Shell internal documents and communications the company was recently obliged to supply to me in accordance with an application under the Data Protection Act.

It is interesting to note the way events in our unusual relationship with Shell have been spun by Shell lawyers, depending on who is being given the information.

Richard Wiseman (right) is now the Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. We crossed swords with him many times during the seven separate court actions we brought against the oil giant, which settled ALL of these claims, involving breach of confidence, breach of contract and libel.

A lengthy document sent by allegedly disillusioned Shell employees to leading environmental and human rights activists sought to launch a corporate revolution at the oil giant.

The document, which was given to IT PRO, was attached to a leaked database containing contact details of nearly every Shell employee. It was sent by 116 disillusioned full-time employees in the US, the UK and the Netherlands to Greenpeace and other campaign groups active in Nigeria.

The document contained information on how the contact database could be used change the way Shell operates, by influencing employees, the public, top institutional investors and non-governmental organisations. read more

Shell guilty of allowing worlds biggest breach of employee details

By John Donovan

Shell media spin machine went into overdrive last week trying to downplay the worlds biggest ever leak of employee details, including personal information, which Shell Ethics boss Richard Wiseman, has twice admitted puts the safety of some employees at risk.

A copy of a related email from Mr Wendel Broere, Group spokesman, Global media relations, Shell International B.V, desperately engaged on a damage limitation exercise with the news media, was leaked to me on the day it was sent. My role is discussed in the email, no doubt because I am the person who broke the story which turned into a global PR disaster for Shell, with all kinds of unwelcome repercussions, including an investigation by the Information Commissioners Office and the prospect of a fine for being reckless with confidential employee data. read more

Shell hit by massive data breach

The Register

Posted in IT Director, 15th February 2010 09:20 GMT

By John Oates

Shell has been hit by a massive data breach – the contact database for 176,000 staff and contractors at the firm has been copied and forwarded to lobbyists and activists opposed to the company.

John Donovan, an activist who received the database, said he had voluntarily destroyed the files. But he warned that other copies were available online.

The email supposedly comes from 176 “concerned staff” to highlight Shell’s activities in Nigeria. The database is about six months old and could have been released by a recently-laid off staff member, or there could really be a rogue campaign group within Shell.Richard Wiseman, chief ethics and compliance officer at Royal Dutch Shell, wrote to staff last week after the breach emerged. read more

British intelligence group Hakluyt & Company warned today of a drop in revenues this year after businesses cut back on spying on their rivals in the recession.

But the Mayfair-based firm, which has been described as “a retirement home for ex-MI6 officers” and whose boardroom roll reads like a Who’s Who of the City, said demand for corporate spooks had started to pick up again. read more

Age discrimination at Shell: a message directed at Shell Ethics Chief Richard Wiseman

By John Donovan

Interesting that this posting on our Shell Blog, raising the issue of age discrimination in the restructuring process, is directed at Shell veteran Richard Wiseman, the Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer of Royal Dutch Shell Plc who is close to retirement age.

FROM A SHELL INSIDER

A POSTING ON SHELL BLOG BY rockdude1950 on Dec 6th, 2009 at 2:51 pm

Shell encourages anyone with knowledge of activities that go against the company’s code of conduct to step forward and bring those activities to the attention of the Ethics and Compliance manager. The reorganization has provided many examples of actions that violate not just the code of conduct, but the laws of several countries in which Shell operates. I use this way to bring these actions to the attention of the Ethics and Compliance manager since I do fear retribution and a witch hunt, even with all the assurances to the contrary. The violations permeate throughout the process and come down from the high level in the EC. read more

Attention of Mr Gavin White, Company Secretarial Department, Shell International Limited

Dear Mr White

You are of course aware of our SAR Application lodged on 4 September 2009 via Mr Brandjes and my subsequent correspondence with you on the matter.

Bearing in mind that no information has yet been supplied, could you please include within the current application, any relevant Shell documents/information/communications/notes/instructions etc right up to date, so that recent events are dealt with now, rather than having to submit a further SAR application. read more

Outrage as top arms dealer plans “ethics” lecture

IF RICHARD WISEMAN (RIGHT), SHELL’S RULE BENDING CHIEF ETHICS AND NON COMPLIANCE OFFICER CAN GIVE AN ANTI-CORRUPTION SPEECH IN ASIA, DESPITE HIS TRACK RECORD IN SUPPORTING CORRUPT PRACTICES BY SHELL MANAGERS, WHAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH THE HEAD OF BAE SYSTEMS, AN ARMS COMPANY “ACCUSED OF CORRUPTION IN FIVE CONTINENTS”, DELIVERING A LECTURE ON ETHICAL ISSUES?

By staff writers 3 Nov 2009

The news that the head of a multinational arms company is to deliver a prominent lecture on ethics has been greeted with a mixture of derision and outrage. Dick Olver, chair of BAE Systems, will focus on ethical issues when he delivers the Mountbatten Memorial Lecture on 12 November.

BAE has long been criticised by NGOs, charities, churches and faith groups for its arms sales to oppressive regimes such as Saudi Arabia and Indonesia. The company has been accused of corruption in five continents and is thought to be on the brink of prosecution in the UK. read more

ENERTAG PATENTS: MORE ROYAL DUTCH SHELL IP CHICANERY?

Shell has had advance sight of the article below concerning intellectual property owned by Enertag SAS.

Shell had the opportunity to:

  • point out any inaccurate information
  • supply comment for publication with the article on an unedited basis
  • seek an injunction to prevent publication

Since there has been NO response, we have published the article as per the draft supplied to Shell; namely to Royal Dutch Shell Plc CEO Peter Voser, its Company Secretary & General Counsel Corporate, Michiel Brandjes, and its rule bending Chief Ethics & Non Compliance Officer, Richard Wiseman.

THE ARTICLE

By John Donovan

In July of this year, I received an email from the Chief Executive Officer of Enertag SAS, a high technology service company providing solutions for subsea oil & gas asset management, in which Shell Technology Ventures  Fund 1 had acquired a stake. read more

Domain name battle for Royal Dutch Shell Plc .com (guess who lost)

LEAFLET BEING DISTRIBUTED AT SHELL CENTRE, LONDON, WEEK COMMENCING 26 OCTOBER 2009

Domain name battle for Royal Dutch Shell Plc .com (guess who lost)

By John Donovan of royaldutchshellplc.com: Oct 2009

Only Shell could end up in the humiliating position of its arch critics owning the dotcom domain name for the unified parent company Royal Dutch Shell Plc.

Richard Wiseman, currently RDS Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer, has publicly boasted that he was the conductor of the legal orchestra responsible for creating the unified company from the ashes of the Shell Transport/Royal Dutch structure destroyed by the reserves fraud.

Unfortunately, he forgot to ensure that the top-level domain name for the new company was secured before the name of Royal Dutch Shell Plc was publicly revealed. Imagine the shock and horror when Shell executive directors discovered the identity of the party who had beaten them to the precise dotcom domain name for the company: my father, Alfred Donovan (now 92 yrs old). read more

A pirate flag at Shell Centre as a warning to all who enter

EMAIL FROM JOHN DONOVAN TO SHELL ETHICS CHIEF RICHARD WISEMAN: 20 OCTOBER 2009

Subject: Leaflets at Shell Centre (Revised email)

Dear Mr Wiseman

I understand that a Shell security guard was sent out on a mission to obtain the names of the people issuing our leaflets to Shell employees outside Shell Centre.

That can only be viewed as another act of deliberate intimidation. Why else would they be asked for their names, unless you intend putting them on your Christmas card list? read more

To: [email protected]
Subject: Leaflets at Shell Centre

Dear Mr Wiseman

Just to confirm that at 2pm today, I visited Shell Centre and personally established with your security staff the boundary between Shell property and public access property in front of the Shell Centre on York Road. No one from within the building had the courtesy or courage to come outside and deal with me, a long term Shell shareholder. Instead, instructions were given over a two way radio. read more

ROYAL DUTCH SHELL USING BULLY BOY TACTICS TO THWART LAWFUL PROTEST IN LONDON

Subject: ROYAL DUTCH SHELL USING BULLY BOY TACTICS TO THWART LAWFUL PROTEST IN LONDON

Dear Boris

I currently have a team of three people on most business days distributing Shell related leaflets in the vicinity of the Shell Centre in York Road, Waterloo. The main thrust of allegations set out in the leaflets are not directed at ordinary Shell employees, many of whom work in fear of being “culled” or forced to reapply for their own jobs, but against their ruthless fat cat bosses. read more

Question for Shell Ethics Chief, Richard Wiseman about Shell alleged use of asbestos

Posted on Shell Blog by “FE”

Dear Mr Wiseman

Can you please let me know if Shell used asbestos in their coal gasification plant in Dong Ting?

If yes, did Shell decide to remove the asbestos (providing a safe working environment) or did Shell decided for cost reasons to take no further action?

Who will take care of the asbestos during operation and maintenance?

Information added by royaldutchshellplc.com

Why is asbestos dangerous?

Breathing in air containing asbestos fibres can lead to asbestos-related diseases, mainly cancers of the lung and chest lining. read more
