EXTRACT

This week, Shell CEO Peter Voser denounced the Bristol Bay Times-Dutch Harbor Fisherman’s story in a London press conference, saying $6 million was nothing to Shell, and therefore didn’t factor into the company’s decision to move its rigs when they did. Remember, Shell’s plan was not only to move the Kulluk, but also the Noble Discoverer, which ran into trouble, too, luckily while it was docked in Seward and bobbing around in a horrific storm at not a risk to Alaska like the Kulluk.

In an interview with KUCB’s Stephanie Joyce, Voser said, “There was a statement made by a Shell person, but in a completely different context, in a completely different meeting. That was then taken out of that context and then someone made a story out it. Just to be very clear on this one.”

FULL ARTICLE CONTAINING EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE PROVING THAT CONTRARY TO VOSER’S ATTEMPTED DISTORTION OF THE TRUTH, NOTHING WAS TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT.
