Safety at risk under Malcolm Brinded

Entirely the wrong man to entrust with an oversight function in relation to the safety of rail passengers. He was shunted out of Shell under a cloud. If that is a model of the Shell Prelude in the background of the photograph, it is not an encouraging omen. Mining giant BHP Billiton has appointed former […]

Shell risked offshore workers lives to dodge Alaskan tax bill

Despite all promises to the contrary, Shell is still putting monetary considerations before safety. Just read some of the recent articles about Shell’s reckless conduct in offshore Alaska. It put the lives of offshore workers and the environment at risk to avoid a potential multimillion dollar tax bill. Personally, I do not believe enough attention […]

Kashagan Debacle: Not enough engineers, too many idiots

When John Stubbs was assigned to the Kashagan project, he was confronted by an over-budget hopelessly out-of-control shambles and advised Shell senior management that he did not want the job. He was bluntly told by Shell EP boss Malcolm Brinded, to take it, or leave the company. Stubbs, an engineer and project manager highly regarded by […]

Kuwait suspects corruption in $800 million Royal Dutch Shell contract

Seems to me that the Kuwait government is being very diplomatic and the word “corruption” should be substituted for “irregularities.” In my experience, despite pledges to the contrary in its sham ethical code, Shell senior management is content to turn a blind eye to corruption. Lets face it, the entire Royal Dutch Shell Group was […]

China a sink hole for Royal Dutch Shell

There are so many things wrong in China and RDS has no idea of what is going on. Investors be aware that it is a sink hole with no financial bottom and the “good ole boy” politics are in play in China. Posting on Shell Blog by “Tyler” on 2014/04/05 at 04:04 Let’s talk China. […]

Shell Oil Boss Marvin Odum Should Resign after Alaskan Debacle

Now we have further confirmation that Shell was trying to dodge a multimillion tax bill. This time confirmation comes from the findings of an investigation by the Coast Guard division of US Homeland Security. There are going to be more Royal Dutch Shell executives looking for alternative employment… And Marvin Odum, Shell’s boss in the […]

Tales of the Unexpected and Royal Dutch Shell Prelude FLNG

Tales of the Unexpected – 2nd in a series of articles by Bill Campbell, retired HSE Group Auditor, Shell International, about safety issues relating to the Shell Prelude FLNG project A Prelude to disaster?

Royal Dutch Shell Chairman Jorma Ollila failed to disclose ownership of Luxembourg company worth €8.2 million

“It will be interesting to see what happens next. If Ollila (right) did not disclose his Luxembourg interests to the authorities, this was presumably because he did not declare them for tax purposes either. So when others within the companies that he leads commit breaches of inconvenient laws, they can presumably use the justification that […]

ROYAL DUTCH SHELL ALLEGED €2 MILLION BRIBERY SLUSH FUND

I have today been in email correspondence with Johan Groenewald, Senior Investigating Officer of the Garda Ombudsman Commission. Mr. Groenewald is currently investigating police corruption allegations made by whisleblower OSSL against Shell EP Ireland. I have supplied Mr. Groenewald with emails sent to a third party major company alleged to have held a €2 million […]

Peter Rees reappears but mystery remains over his exit from Shell

“Rees’ departure from Shell prompted much speculation in the City, given the company’s recent profit warnings, the on-going European Commission investigation into oil price-rigging and the arrival of new CEO Ben van Beurden.” Mr Rees has refused to comment on the circumstances of his unexpected and unexplained departure from Royal Dutch Shell during a financial […]

BP and Shell peril on the Russian front

“While BP is the biggest of Britain’s oil giants exposed to Russia, it is not alone. Royal Dutch Shell has a stake in the huge Sakhalin-2 liquefied natural gas (LNG) project off the Psacific coast of Russia, and is also working with gas giant Gazprom to drill for oil in the Russian Arttic shelf. The […]
