Shell reserves fraud discovery documents added on Saturday 24 November 2007

The email correspondence which proves that Walter van de Vijver, Chief Executive of Shell EP, warned Philip Watts about “aggressive” reserves bookings and other matters in August 2002:

Walter van de Vijver to Phil Watts:

“I feel strongly that we should stop talking to analysts about things we have not delivered yet…”: “With aggressive historical proved reserves booking, massive investment in Nigeria with increasing risks, few material discoveries, ROACE pressures, we just need to be very careful.”

Exhibit 185: August 2002 Shell internal email correspondence between Walter van de Vijver and Philip Watts (2 pages)

Shell reserves fraud discovery documents published on Sunday 25 November 2007

The first item, Exhibit 186, is email correspondence on 3 January 2004 from Frank Coopman, Chief Financial Officer, Shell Exploration and Production B.V. to Curtis Frasier of Shell International, which was copied to John Darley, SIEP-EPT. This was sent 6 days before the Shell reserves fraud was announced to a stunned world. Frank Coopman made it plain that the “independent” Group reserves auditor, Anton Barendregt (a retired former Shell employee who acted as the Group reserves Auditor on a part-time basis) was in fact “not completely independent”.

The following day, Anton Barendregt sent an email to Frank Coopman copied to John Pay, John Darley and John Bell admitting that with hindsight he should have been more “forceful” in respect of a correct formulation of Group guidelines in relation to avoiding conflict with SEC rules. He stated in his penultimate paragraph: “I realise that Curtis may not like my references to the guidelines. I seem to remember him saying that we should not say externally that our internal guidelines were different from the SEC’s. I do not see how we can maintain that pose in ernest. It would imply saying that either our guidelines were SEC compliant (which would be easily refutable lie) or that we had no guidelines at all, which would be unbelievable and also clearly not true.”

“I like Phil Watts. He is an ‘upstreamer’ and has a good understanding of the business and is looking to grow it profitably.”

“RD/Shell’s management comes across as honest and credible.”

“Management’s weakness is that they got ahead of themselves in their promises.”

Transcript of Videotaped Deposition of MATTHIAS BICHSEL, Executive Vice President Technical, Shell Exploration and Production B.V.: taken in New York, New York October 31, 2006

Exhibit 49 (200 pages) Bichsel Deposition

Exhibit 50 below is of particular interest. In addition to the Deposition of Bichsel, it also contains his CV, confidential email correspondence and PERSON OVERVIEW documents for Bishsel and other senior Shell Executives, as follows: –

Brian Ward, Director, Technical and Operational Excellence: RBD Europe and Africa; Shell International Exploration and Production: Extract: “Brian needs to take care against slipping back in his natural Shell “operations management” role thereby diluting his all-round abilities as “role model EP leader”.

Zaharuddin (Din) Megat, Regional Business Director, Central and South Asia and Russia, Shell International Exploration and Production:

Extract: “Din’s portfolio was reduced on April 1, 2002 to better align scope and capabilities.”

Extract: “Din does not always choose his words carefully when communicating with staff which has resulted in misunderstandings, anger and frustration for several of them this past year. He needs to work on his ability to build effective working relationships with, and more effectively motivate, those reporting to him.”

Tim Warren, former Chairman Shell Australia: Extract: “Tim’s long hours are a legend at Shell. Given our current struggles with work-life balance, he would be well served to lead by example in managing his own work hours and ensuring those he leads focus on the most critical strategic initiatives/issues.”

John Darley, Director Shell Technology Exploration and Production; SIEP

Bob Sprague, Regional Business Director Shell International Exploration and Production: Extract: “He is direct in his communications with others, sometimes uncomfortably so when stating his concerns or objections (particularly through e-mail!). He displays… intolerance for decisions/ recommendations where staff work has not been thorough or the thinking well organised. His lack of natural engagement skills and absence of pro-active behaviour towards changing performance or business climates can “downgrade” his overall excellence in-depth expertise and perspectives.”

Bichsel Matthias, Exploration Director, Shell International Exploration and Production

Lorin Brass, Director, Business Development Support, Shell International Exploration and Production: Extract: “Lorin needs to work at more forceful, persuasive presentation of his position.”

Dominique Gardy, Chief Financial Officer, Shell International Exploration and Production Company: Extract: “…Dominique at times has appeared to be spread a bit thin and needed to consider more effective delegation, time management and perhaps more effective use of resources.”

Carol Dubnicki, HR Director, Exploration and Production, Shell International Exploration and Production.

Extract from Gordon Parry email to Robert Inglis and Grimore Simon (circulated to several other Shell colleagues) 6 Sept 2000:

Gents, I attach the final version of the note requested by Heinz at the last EPG meeting regarding reserves booking in Angola and Brazil.

This note was forwarded to Phil Watts who remarked, quote

“It is critical that the Angola reserves are booked this year or our EP scorecard will be shot” unquote:

“Herewith Phil’s reactions. We must pull this off aggressively! And we need on well, at least, as appraisal, whatever the purists say!”

Let’s be guided accordingly!

Gordon
