Besieged by undercover activity during run-up to Shell SMART High Court Trial

Extract from the ebook “John Donovan, Shell’s Nightmare” (now available on Amazon websites globally)

(BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT SHELL’S EPIC 25 YEAR FEUD WITH JOHN DONOVAN – which puts the extracts below in overall context.)

We were besieged by undercover activity during the run-up to the SMART High Court Trial – the climax of our litigation alleging that Shell had stolen the SMART multi-partner loyalty card concept from our company Don Marketing. Shell had in reply brought a Counterclaim amid a barrage of aggressive threats and sinister activity against us. With regards to the reference to Charles Hoots, I have a file of information about him and his spying expertise, including the extensive article co-authored by him: “SHOULD THE CIA START SPYING FOR CORPORATE AMERICA?”. There is a reference to Mr Hoots in the US National Security Archive and his involvement in an intelligence related project concerning Afghanistan.  read more

Is the era of rising oil prices already over?

Is the era of rising oil prices already over?

From our editor • Fair

Oil prices were on the rise. A barrel of Brent oil, benchmark for the world oil markets, dipped on the $ 45 last year, then started a climb that ended two weeks ago at $ 70. Then the draft came in. Last week, the price of a barrel of Brent dropped by the $ 62. Is this the beginning of an oil price decline?

Hans van Cleef, energy economist at ABN Amro

‘Oil may start to decline in the short term. The prices were very much gone. There has been some fear about the potential of American shale oil. That puts pressure on prices in a fairly speculative market. read more

Shell Secret Manoeuvres in the Dark

Extract from the ebook “John Donovan, Shell’s Nightmare” (now available on Amazon websites globally)

(BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT SHELL’S EPIC 25 YEAR FEUD WITH JOHN DONOVAN – which puts the extracts below in overall context.)

…Shell Oil Co implemented a secret 265-page devious plan devised by a Washington-based firm, Pagan International called “The Neptune Strategy.” It was designed to undermine support for critics of Shell’s policy of propping up the despised racist apartheid regime in South Africa.

Extract below from page 97, including reference to a book – “Secret Manoeuvres in the Dark”- authored by Eveline Lubbers

It is relevant to point out that we were not the first critics of Shell to be the subjects of cloak and dagger activity. According to the same book in 1987, Shell Oil Co implemented a secret 265-page devious plan devised by a Washington-based firm, Pagan International called “The Neptune Strategy.”

It was designed to undermine support for critics of Shell’s policy of propping up the despised racist apartheid regime in South Africa. On page 67, Lubbers reveals that Shell had secret meetings with church delegates. read more

MOSOP Warn Shell Against Attempt to Forcefully Resume Production in Ogoniland

By Fegalo Nsuke

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) wishes to state its displeasure over an attempt by the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited to forcefully resume oil production in Ogoniland.

We state unequivocally that the actions of Shell are unacceptable to the Ogoni people. We note that Shell and its allies are still Persona Non Grata in Ogoniland and consequently, any attempt to forcefully resume production in Ogoni without properly negotiating with all stakeholders will surely be resisted by the Ogoni people and could lead to a breakdown of the peace and possible military crackdown as usual.

MOSOP therefore demand the immediate withdrawal of all equipment belonging to Shell in Ogoniland. read more

MESSAGE FOR ROYAL DUTCH SHELL FROM AN ARCTIC FOX

UNEDITED CHILLING MESSAGE FOR ROYAL DUTCH SHELL FROM A 10 YEAR OLD CITIZEN OF AURORA, COLORADO. FULL CONTACT DETAILS WERE PROVIDED.

Your Oil is Killing the Arctic Foxes!

Yea yea, its fineeeeeeee.  It’s totally ok that your killing off my species.  I’ve always wanted to know what it’s like to be extinct, NOT. Im really special, but i guess your company, Royal Dutch Shell, doesn’t realize that.

I am an Arctic Fox, a fluffy, white, small animal. I mostly eat lemmings, a small animal too, but smaller than me. I live in skulks, or packs, and i eat leftovers from polar bear’s meals when there’s not enough  lemmings i need to eat.  Or the other starving arctic foxes eat them all. I live in mostly cold places, such as the arctic tundra, Russia, Iceland, Norway, Greenland, Alaska, Canada, Scandinavia, Finland, and Sweden. read more

Shell, NNPC, Oil Companies Alone Cannot Resolve Ogoni Problem

President of MOSOP, Legborsi Pyagbara addressing Ogonis during a protest against Shell’s pipe laying in Ogoniland, August 2017.

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) says resolving the Ogoni problem will require multi-stakeholder discussions involving Shell the Nigerian government and the Ogoni people. President of MOSOP Legborsi Saro Pyagbara made this known yesterday in Boue, Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Addressing a meeting of MOSOP Kingdom Coordinators, Pyagbara who was represented by the organization’s Publicity Secretary, Fegalo Nsuke, said all parties to the conflict including Shell, the Nigerian government and the Ogoni people must meet to resolve the Ogoni conflict which has led to the death of over 4,000 persons and a generation of Ogoni leaders.

Nsuke accused the Nigerian government and Shell of deliberately encouraging conflict in Ogoniland by attempting to resume oil production without resolving the issues raised by the Ogoni people. read more

NAM pleased with NAM’s new claims protocol

Minister Wiebes of Economic Affairs and Climate presented a new damage protocol together with the region on Wednesday 31 January.

NAM director Gerald Schotman (left) responded with pleasure.

“From now on, the State can resume tackling the damage caused by earthquakes energetically. With this protocol, NAM now definitely stands for the future at a distance from that claim settlement. That was emphatically the wish of the Groningers and also of us as a company. At the same time I continue to emphasise: NAM will also compensate in the future for the damage caused by earthquakes.”

Calls for Dutch Parliamentary Inquiry into Groningen Gas Extraction

Louis Hoeks • Economics & Politics

A parliamentary inquiry into the gas extraction in Groningen is flashing. The request for such an investigation by the opposition parties GroenLinks, SP and the Party for the Animals received insufficient support during a debate with Minister Wiebes (Economic Affairs and Climate, VVD) on Wednesday. In the longer term, there seems to be more enthusiasm for a survey.

‘If this is not a good time for a parliamentary inquiry, what is the moment? Everyone needs to know why things have happened, as they have happened, “said Frank Wassenberg (PvdD). There are many questions in the House about decisions of the previous government, especially about the pace at which gas extraction has been reduced. read more

Oil multinationals leave heavy years behind

Oil multinationals leave heavy years behind

Bert van Dijk • Entrepreneurship

Fossil fuel companies may be subject to fire from environmental organizations, ‘green’ shareholders, financial regulators and prosecuting climate lawyers, but financially speaking the big oil and gas multinationals are back on their feet after a number of difficult years.

That is the most important conclusion now that four of the ‘Big Five’ have published their annual results. Cost savings, higher oil prices and rising demand for oil and gas in the world led to a total of more than $ 115 billion in operating cash flow for Shell, ExxonMobil, BP and Chevron combined and more than $ 51 billion in profits last year. read more

Shell’s team of undercover officers in Nigeria

Shell managed a large force of police officers, which provided security for the company’s personnel and property. The records show that this force included a team of undercover officers, which received training from the security services. 

Extract from pages 9, 10 & 11 of an Amnesty International document headed: “A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE? SHELL’S INVOLVEMENT IN HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN NIGERIA IN THE 1990s”

SHELL LENT MATERIAL SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE TO THE ARMED FORCES

Shell provided the security forces with logistical support and payments as a matter of routine during the 1990s. Former Shell Nigeria chairperson, Brian Anderson explained that this was standard practice in relation to the military:

“In reality, any operational contact with the government requires financial and logistical support from Shell. For example to get representatives of the Department of Petroleum Resources to view an oil spill we often have to provide transport and other amenities. The same applies to military protection.” (emphasis added) read more
