JOHN DONOVAN ABOVE LEFT, SHELL CRITIC & ACTIVIST
By John Donovan
There is a considerable PR campaign in full swing at the moment publicising Shell’s association with the world’s largest ship of its kind, Pioneering Spirit. It entered service in 2016.
Shell will be using it to remove Brent Delta topsides. The work is scheduled to begin this summer.
What is less well known is that the Ship began life under the name of a Nazi officer in the Waffen-SS who served during World War II.
