We are group of Omani youth, engineers and others who have started a campaign to demand the nationalization of PDO and therefore to cancel the PSA agreement between PDO (& hence SHELL) and the government of OMAN.
Our goals are:
-Nationalization, take back the 40% currently owned the private shareholders through legal process
-Restructuring the company completely and thoroughly
-Dividing block 6 into smaller concession areas; easy ones which can be solely operated by national resources and more difficult ones which require sophisticated technologies and high capital investment which can be offered for PSA’s
We would be grateful if we can help us to get:
-any insight of SHELL position in OMAN,
-any information of the renewed sharing agreement of 2004,
-any correspondences related to the subject,
-any confidential documents,
-any information of how the Omani government approached Shell regarding the overbooked reserves prior to 2004?
-your own view of the subject would be highly appreciated
Any information which you think will help the campaign and you can share with us will be appreciated. How do you think we should proceed? Any advice?
