By Steve Evans: Published 8 July 2011

Thanks to WikiLeaks and hacktivists Anonymous, data breaches have never been higher up the agenda.

CBR looks at some of the more infamous incidents of data loss.

Extract

Shell, 2010

Keep your workers happy seems to be the message behind this leak. Energy giant Shell was rocked in early 2010 when a database of 170,000 of its workers was emailed out to human rights groups and environmental activists, including Greenpeace and royaldutchshellplc.com, a website run by anti-Shell campaigners. It was rumoured that the database was emailed out of the company by a disgruntled employee. According to The Times, a covering letter criticising Shell’s activities in Nigeria was sent out with the database, apparently signed by more than 100 workers in the US, Holland and the UK. read more

Inside Shell’s Iran Game

Forbes: Inside Shell’s Iran Game

June 3, 2010 – 4:58 pm Mark DubowitzBio | Email Mark Dubowitz is Executive Director of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and leads the Foundation’s Iran Energy Project  

Royal Dutch Shell resumed its gasoline shipments to Iran, International Oil Daily reported this morning.  The company got back into business with the Iranian regime after a six-month hiatus. The move is a slap at the U.S. Congress, which has been working to develop energy sanctions that could curtail the regime’s nuclear weapons program, human rights abuses, and support for terrorism.

According to International Oil Daily, Shell delivered three 30,000-ton shipments of gasoline last month to Iran’s Bandar Abbas port. The company’s last known shipment to Iran was recorded in October 2009. read more

Essar, the Indian conglomerate, has bid for three European Royal Dutch Shell refineries on sale as part of the Anglo-Dutch oil group’s restructuring of its downstream operations.

The disposals by Shell are part of its strategy to rid itself of smaller refineries in favour of investing in large, integrated complexes, such as those in Port Arthur, Texas and Rotterdam. The package is valued at about £1.5bn ($2.4bn). read more

Oil giants destroy rainforests to make palm oil diesel for motorists

Shell had the best record of the major companies for declaring the sources of its biofuel. It said that it did not use any palm oil last year because it could not find any from a sustainable source. Luis Scoffone, vice-president for biofuels, said that Shell could have met its biofuel obligation more cheaply if it had bought palm oil.

By Bill Campbell (above), retired HSE Group Auditor, Shell International

On the subject of the integrity of Royal Dutch Shell Chairman, Jorma Ollila, raised by former Shell executive, Paddy Briggs, the information below was copied to Nokia yesterday, it should be self explanatory, if Nokia do not act they could find themselves guilty by association:

Only faith can solve the energy crisis

Scandinavia is one of the most secularised corners of the world and by reputation one of the most rational.

NEW YORK — Royal Dutch Shell agreed to a $15.5 million settlement Monday to end a lawsuit alleging that the oil giant was complicit in the executions of activist Ken Saro-Wiwa and other civilians by Nigeria’s former military regime.

Shell, which continues to operate in Nigeria, said it agreed to settle the lawsuit in hopes aiding the “process of reconciliation.” But Europe’s largest oil company acknowledged no wrongdoing in the 1995 hanging deaths of six people, including poet Ken Saro-Wiwa. read more

Private equity funds are expected to take a healthy interest in Shell’s New Zealand asset sell up, The Australian Financial Review reported.

Shell has put its so-called downstream businesses on the block which include 230 petrol stations, aviation and marine fuel, bitumen, chemical, supply and distribution businesses plus a 17 per cent stake in New Zealand Refining and a quarter stake of FlyBuys operator, Loyalty New Zealand.

The AFR reported that Shell’s adviser UBS was putting a financing package together for bidders, which would provide clarity about the terms on which a lending syndicate was willing to roll over debt. read more

Royal Dutch Shell to compensate shareholders for reserves scandal

News that the oil giant had overstated reserves in submissions to the US regulator, the Securities & Exchange Commission, led to the departure of Sir Philip Watts, the chief executive, and Walter van de Vijver, Shell's then exploration chief. It came as a serious shock to investors and left Shell's reputation – and share price – in such tatters that there was speculation it would be taken over by a resurgent BP. The FSA subsequently fined Shell for committing market abuse and breaches of the listing rules after making misleading statements between 1998 and 2004.

Shell Blog Posting by Iain Percival, Royal Dutch Shell retired Global Chief Petroleum Engineer

By Iain Percival

I have now caught up with the news / comments having returned from a most refreshing break at my home in Scotland – no internet connection which is good, for a while at least 🙂

My two pence of observations are as follows.

1. I have written on several occasions that Shell upstream is populated by many, many seriously good and dedicated technical professionals who wish for nothing more than (i)an interesting and rewarding career coupled with recognition for good / original / innovative contribution , (ii) progression based not on WHO you know but on what you know (capability) and demonstrable delivery of technical and / or commercial contribution, (iii)  courageous, knowledgeable & honest leadership, (iv) minimal burden of dealing with “stuff”, (v)association with a well respected company name (brand Paddy??). read more

Well-off chiefs turn to charity

Jorma Ollila, chairman of Nokia and Royal Dutch Shell, says it can help win back respect as long as it does not look like an afterthought.

Royal Dutch Shell and Royal Bank of Scotland to merge

by Paddy Briggs  RDS and RBS to merge

BY

Flora Poi

The leaked news, yet to be confirmed but buzzing around the City, that the two regal corporations Royal Bank of Scotland and Royal Dutch Shell are to merge has caught analysts and legislators off their guard. The idea that a failing bank and a struggling oil company should pool there resources seems extraordinary – but no stranger than the bizarre train of circumstances that has led to this apparent accord. The further leaked insider information that the two beknighted ex-CEOs of Shell and RBS, Sir Philip Watts and Sir Fred Goodwin, are to be jointly tasked with the creation of the new global giant has rocked the city to its foundations “It’s as if Lehman Brothers went bust” one insider said over a large glass of Château Margaux 1986. read more

Ensure there is no backlash against foreign workers says Lord Kerr, Deputy Chairman, Royal Dutch Shell

Published: February 6 2009 02:00 | Last updated: February 6 2009 02:00

From Mr Roland Rudd and others.

Sir, At this time of economic difficulty and real hardship for many people, it is more important than ever to cherish the principle of the free movement of labour in the European Union. This has been called into question by the strikes at the Lindsey oil refinery and elsewhere. The fundamental principle of the European single market is the free movement of goods, capital, services and labour. This means that continental European companies can invest in the UK; such investment generates economic growth and productivity. Similarly it enables UK companies to trade easily and invest in the rest of Europe. It is estimated that the single market is worth £20bn annually to the UK. read more
