The police officers, using guns and grenades, killed 80 people…

Extract from pages 8 & 9 of an Amnesty International document headed: “A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE? SHELL’S INVOLVEMENT IN HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN NIGERIA IN THE 1990s”

Under Executive Summary.

SHELL UNDERSTOOD THE RISKS OF CALLING FOR MILITARY INTERVENTION

There is irrefutable evidence that Shell knew that the Nigerian security forces committed grave violations when they were deployed to address community protests. The company knew the risks since at least 1990, when Shell called for the assistance of a paramilitary police unit to deal with peaceful protestors at Umuechem village, also in the Niger Delta. According to an official enquiry, the police descended on the community, “like an invading army that had vowed to take the last drop of the enemy’s blood.” The police officers, using guns and grenades, killed 80 people.

It is clear from both public statements and internal company documents that at least from this point on Shell executives knew and understood the risks associated with calling for the intervention of the security forces in dealing with protestors. This was well before the ISTF launched its operation in May 1994. For example, an internal Shell memo dated 23 February 1993 reveals that senior Shell staff worried that calling for a “military presence…will attract a potential confrontation which may have catastrophic results.”

These risks were confirmed by three other incidents involving protestors in 1992-3: the death of a man and injury of several others on Bonny Island in July 1992 after Shell airlifted a “Rapid Intervention Force” comprising paramilitary police to the location; and the two incidents mentioned earlier, when soldiers shot local people along the pipeline in April and May 1993. By February 1994, Shell had had further confirmation – if it was needed – of the specific risks associated with the army, when the ISTF, commanded by Major Paul Okuntimo, shot at thousands of peaceful protestors outside the main gate the Shell HQ in Port Harcourt, injuring several of them.

There is great anger in Bonny that SPDC is taking the silence of Bonny people for cowardice, a good number of indigenes are gearing up to confront the multinational oil and gas giant…

The Organization of Fishermen Seafood Dealers and Farmers in Niger Delta (OFSDF/ND) have accused multinational oil giant Shell Petroleum Development Company, SPDC of playing a fundamental role in encouraging and aiding the high spate of illegal bunkering around the Oloma axis of Bonny in Rivers state. Following the shoddy pipeline clamping job and company’s refusal to destroy or evacuate illegal bunkering equipment within their pipeline facilities sabotaged by local refiners

Spokesperson for the OFSDF/ND, Mrs Preye Okosi, made this assertion in a letter written to the Amanyanabo of Bonny Kingdom, His Majesty King Edward Asimini William Dappa Pepple, demanding that Shell must return to the site and complete the inconclusive clamping jobs and ensure the destruction/clearance of illegal bunkering equipment within the Oloma, Ogbonga and Berger axis, or risk stoppage of all her activities in the area.

The letter reads in part: “ANASAMI CONSTRUCTION LIMITED contractors to Shell was awarded a job to work on SPDC pipeline clamping within the ogbonga axis and to destroy local equipment previously used for illegal bunkering in the area to curb the menace of pipeline vandals. However, instead of professionally carrying out the job according specification, the company abandoned the contract halfway and left the area without concluding the clamping job, and had also failed to evacuate remains of the local refinery equipment that was used for illegal bunkering in the area”.

The situation according to OFSDF/ND spokesperson is worrisome because with the presence of the illegal bunkering tools, there is the possibility that the bunkers might revisit and have a seamless access to burst the pipeline with their equipment still in place and continue from where they stopped.

Okosi also disclosed that a damaged pipeline along the Oloma axis left unclamped is still experiencing some amount of leakage. Hear her: ”We are aware they did a cofferdam job, like a tentative preventive arrangement which is over a year now, however SPDC has consistently refused to return to site to do the final clamping”, she said adding that there is also sabotage on the Shell pipeline valve that is yet to be attended to by the company and the concern is that if not repaired it will attract the return of the these illegal bunkers again.

The letter reads: “As the Organization of Fishermen Seafood Dealers and Farmers in Niger Delta (OFSDF/ND) we are greatly concerned because we are the ones directly affected by the spew of spill which obviously robs off on our source of livelihood. Your Majesty our King, we have come to conclude that with the glut of inconclusive jobs done by Shell sub-contractors and continuous silence on the path of SPDC to order the contractor back to site at Ogbonga, including the company’s refusal to carry out clamp job on the various leakages and valve, it has become apparent that there is collusion between shell, their subcontractors and the illegal refiners to continue their illegal refining business” it opined..

The group said the absence of Shell and their contractors at the various leakage points have accounted for monumental damage to the environment and fishing activities, adding that in spite of the consequences brought about by their pollution, SPDC is yet to do a proper clean up, rather they are playing politics with the cleanup in these areas.

In another development, information gathered reveals that SPDC is at loggerheads with the Bonny kingdom over an unfortunate decision to carry out a reassessment project within the Bonny territory without involving their host and critical stakeholders Bonny Kingdom.. The people of Ancient Bonny kingdom are said to be incensed that a joint investigation report that should have been signed by members of the host community, Bonny was rather taken to the Andonis by SPDC officials to sign. The action according to one Asinyetogha Furo from Green’s Iwoama in Bonny is an affront on the King and good people of Bonny kingdom, if you consider that a supreme court judgment has clearly identified our boundary with the Andonis.

Similarly, an indigene of the area Victor Hart disclosed that Shell has continued to defy the kingdom in all front. According to him, last year there was a spill and overflow in the shell terminal tank farm due to a mechanical failure on the path of the company. SPDC contacted the Freedom To Operate (FTO) Committee of Bonny kingdom in charge of oil and gas to inform them that job for the clean-up exercise has been awarded. However the Freedom To Operate (FTO) Committee realized that the job was awarded to a non- indigenous contractor against agreement reached between the company and the kingdom on facility and equipment failure and therefore requested that Shell must stop forthwith and re-award the job to an indigenous contractor. This request by the Bonny kingdom according to him, has not been effected as SPDC continue to disregard the order to date, instead they have remained adamant and unconcerned.

There is great anger in Bonny that SPDC is taking the silence of Bonny people for cowardice, a good number of indigenes are gearing up to confront the multinational oil and gas giant, insisting that they must subject to the various MoU’s.

In the letter written to His Majesty King Edward Asimini William Dappa Pepple by the Organization of Fishermen Seafood Dealers and Farmers in Niger Delta, they warned that SPDC must return to conclude all pending clamping job to forestall further destruction of the environment by these illegal bunkers. The Bonny monarch recently has signed up for the zero-bunkering in his kingdom which is a good development; but the fishing organization is warning that all SPDC activity will be brought to a halt by both the community and the fishermen should they continue in this deceit and seeming conspiracy.

An umbrella group for 140 Presbyterian churches in Allegheny County is calling for a halt to the construction of a sprawling petrochemical plant in neighboring Beaver County, saying it would worsen already high levels of pollution and cancer risk in Southwestern Pennsylvania. 

“We are part of a faith tradition that has affirmed our responsibility to care for the earth as our home and care for all people, especially our most vulnerable populations,” says a letter signed by officials of the Pittsburgh Presbytery, representing more than 28,000 members of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in Allegheny County.

“This plant, and subsequent plants that are planned for the Ohio Valley, will be mass producing plastic products that have been linked to the death of animals and the diminishment of fragile natural habitats,” said the letter, approved by presbytery representatives at their December meeting.

At the same meeting, the presbytery also endorsed a proposal that its national denomination pull all of its investments from fossil fuels in response to the “devastating and urgent reality of climate change.” And it’s urging churches to explore using solar or other renewables to power their churches.

The actions come from a presbytery in the hub of one of the nation’s richest sources of natural gas, and in a region where many Presbyterian churches were historically built on the money that donors and members earned through coal, oil or gas.

Shell Chemical Appalachia has already begun constructing a multi-billion dollar cracker plant in Potter Township, just northwest of Allegheny County. The plant will take ethane, a natural gas liquid plentiful in the Appalachian region, and transform it into pellets for plastic manufacturing.

The plant is expected to create up to 6,000 construction jobs and 600 permanent jobs.

But the presbytery says the plant will massively increase the emissions of carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds while also expanding the demand for a regional infrastructure of fracking wells and pipelines.

“We can’t ignore environmental issues any longer, especially in our region, where air quality is one of the worst in the nation and we have a fossil-fuel industry looking to take advantage of the poverty of our area and the need for jobs,” said the Rev. John Creasy, associate pastor of the Open Door Church in Highland Park and a member of the presbytery’s peacemaking committee, which proposed the measure.

“We’re trying to do this sensitively and help our region develop a vision for clean-energy jobs, and jobs that will last into the future,” he said.

Shell spokesman Michael Marr said: “We are disappointed this group of church representatives registered opposition without first meeting with Shell to understand the environmental controls we have put in place during design, construction and operations.”

He noted that the plant has received approval from the state Department of Environmental Protection, and will have “the best available environmental controls.”

He added that “we have been heartened by the tremendous support our site has received from community members, business leaders and federal, state and local elected officials of both political parties.”

The Rev. Sheldon Sorge, general minister for the presbytery, said presbytery representatives approved the measure decisively in a standing vote at their meeting. Presbytery representatives include ordained ministers and elders from the congregations.

Opponents of the measure included the Rev. Ted Martin, senior pastor of Hampton Presbyterian Church.

“We use plastic in our lives every day,” he said. “Whether it’s made here or made in China, it’s going to be made.”

He said individuals should try to reduce their use of plastics and pressure companies to produce more environmentally sustainable products and energy sources.

But “the fracking is happening” throughout the region, he said. The natural-gas byproducts will either be shipped elsewhere for processing or could remain here and provide “jobs that could have a ripple effect on the economy.”

He said he’s confident in the strength of environmental regulations governing the plant.

The topic of the cracker plant has not arisen in deliberations of the Beaver-Butler Presbytery, where it will be located, according to the Rev. Alan Adams, its executive presbyter.

When a related issue arose several years ago — whether churches should sign leases for natural-gas extraction from under their property — the presbytery created a manual and required congregational leaders to study it before signing anything, he said.

“In our presbytery there’s a lot of diversity of opinion in regard to that,” he said.

Fossil fuel investments

Separately in December, the Pittsburgh Presbytery joined a dozen other presbyteries in endorsing a proposal from the Hudson River Presbytery in New York. It would require the national denomination’s foundation and pension fund to pull investments from the fossil fuel industry and to invest instead in renewable energy.

The measure will go before the Presbyterians’ national General Assembly in June. Proponents compare it to the denomination’s past divestment from companies involved in tobacco, alcohol, gambling and military contracting.

The measure is not a call to “quit using fossil-fuel products,” Rev. Sorge said. “We couldn’t well do that and live in this world.”

Also, he said, “We don’t mean to impugn the companies that are involved in fossil-fuel production.” But “it’s an instrument for getting us to take seriously the need to look for alternative, renewable energy resources.”

Reached for comment on the proposal, Erica Clayton Wright of the Marcellus Shale Coalition said in a statement: “Natural gas is improving our environment, providing economic and public health benefits as well as jobs across our region and keeping families safe and warm during these dangerously cold periods. We’re proud of the hard work that our local workforce does each day to safely provide the affordable energy that’s improving and lifting up countless lives.”

According to the environmental group 350.org, more than 800 educational, philanthropic and other institutions worldwide have divested from fossil fuels, including liberal religious denominations such as the Episcopal Church and United Church of Christ.

The Presbyterians’ General Assembly in 2016 directed its office for faith-based investing and corporate engagement to raise issues of climate change with companies in which it holds stock, according to office director Rob Fohr.

Since then, the denomination has joined in shareholder resolutions that, for example, contributed to ExxonMobil urging (unsuccessfully) that President Trump keep the United States in the Paris climate accord; Phillips 66 issuing a human-rights report; and Marathon and Valero agreeing to issue sustainability reports.

The Presbyterians’ Board of Pensions hold $145 million in stock in companies listed on an index of top carbon producers, less than 2 percent of the board’s portfolio, while the Presbyterian Foundation holds $21 million, or about 3 percent of portfolio, Mr. Fohr said.

These amount to a fraction of the market capitalization of energy corporations, many in the tens or hundreds of billions of dollars, so divestment would have more of a symbolic than a financial impact.

The New York City government is suing the world’s five largest publicly traded oil companies, seeking to hold them responsible for present and future damages to the city from climate change. The suit, filed Tuesday against BP, Chevron, Conoco-Phillips, ExxonMobil and Royal Dutch Shell, claims the companies together produced 11 percent of all of global warming gases through the oil and gas products they have sold over the years. It also charges that the companies and the industry of which they are part have known for some time about the consequences but sought to obscure them. FULL ARTICLE

Marjan van Loon, CEO of Shell Nederland. Photo: Wiebe Kiestra for the FD

Printed below is an English translation of an article recently published by the Dutch equivalent of the Financial Times, Financieele Dagblad under the headline ‘With this ambition we embrace the Paris goals at Shell’.

By Bert van Dijk  Energy Editor

Shell wants to drastically reduce its CO₂ footprint in the world. The CO₂ footprint must be halved in 2050 not only for its own activities, but also for the end-use of its products. That recently launched ambition is a world first. It is the first time that a large oil and gas company expresses such measurable climate ambitions.Marjan van Loon, CEO of Shell Netherlands.

‘We have been chewing for years,’ says Marjan van Loon, president of Shell Netherlands, in a meeting with the FD. People have often said to us: just speak out, connect with the Paris goals. With this ambition, we embrace those goals. ‘

Shell Nederland employs about 10% of the entire group with 10,000 employees. It does business with more than two thousand Dutch companies and Shell invests each year, according to their own say, € 3.5 billion to € 5 billion. ‘Of course that is the wet sector in Rotterdam, but it is also greenhouse builder Kubo who builds greenhouses around our solar panels in Oman to protect them from the desert. Every year we receive 90,000 travelers from the Netherlands, from Shell alone. The hotels notice that, just like the taxi drivers, “says Van Loon.

Shell wants to do it in the Netherlands, she wants to say. In fact, the Netherlands is the guide country for the rest of the Shell world when it comes to the energy transition. It is no coincidence that the head office of the newly established New Energies division will be located in The Hague and not, for example, in London, Singapore or Shanghai. This part will concern, among other things, the development of clean fuels, wind and solar energy.

To the 51-year-old Van Loon the task of getting the ‘new’ Shell in the spotlight. After the departure of the somewhat distant and officially operating Dick Benschop two years ago, she had to give Shell a better, friendlier, but certainly less fossil image.

Did you succeed?

‘I notice that people know better what Shell does. We have been very explicit about our ambitions and in favor of a clear climate goal in the coalition agreement. People have also seen more from Shell in the Netherlands in the past two years. ‘

Climate. The word falls for the first time in the conversation that takes place in the office of Van Loon in The Hague. There is a saucer of pepernoten on the conference table. On her desk a model of a windmill. That symbolizes the future. A future that Shell wants to commit to through the CO₂ ambition.

Shell wants to halve the CO₂ footprint in 2050. How are you going to do that?

‘By developing new cleaner fuels, producing more sustainable energy and stimulating electric driving. We set up charging stations ourselves, we have purchased charging station company Newmotion and announced the Ionity partnership, which will be charging stations along the European motorways. We hope to be able to seduce people electrically because charging is well taken care of. That is also going faster and faster. You will be ready in 4 to 8 minutes at the latest charging stations. Then you can pee, drink a cup of coffee and go on again. ”

Critics say that halving the CO₂ footprint in 2050 is not enough. That must go to zero.

‘The international climate models show that for the 2-degree scenario in 2070 you have to be CO₂ neutral. A halving in 2050 is in line with that goal. ‘

You drive one of the few hydrogen cars in the Netherlands. What are the experiences?

‘Very well. It is an electric car, only you make your own electricity. The only waste you produce is water. The biggest advantage is the discussion that arises. If a Shell director does not run on petrol or diesel, what does that say? Do you really believe in it? How does this fit with the Shell strategy? How does hydrogen work? I get these kinds of questions. We also learn a lot in Germany. We have a partnership there to roll out four hundred hydrogen stations, we already have ten at Shell locations and another twenty are in the planning. ‘

Shell, together with Eneco, Van Oord and Mitsubishi, won the last tender for a large offshore wind farm in the Netherlands. The next tender for offshore wind will start on December 15, where for the first time only subsidy-free bids can be made. Are you going to register on that?

“I can not say anything about that, of course. But we are very interested in wind energy in the Netherlands and want to be a major player in that. I think it can be much more and much bigger. We are talking about the first five wind tenders, but besides these five wind farms we are also very busy thinking about how you can scale up, because that will be necessary. ‘

Why?

‘You can make electricity more sustainable, but that is only 20% of the energy that the world uses. If we want to make mobility, the built environment and industry more sustainable, we will need much more wind than the five tenders now. ‘

Last week was the kick-off for the negotiations on the new Energy Agreement. One of the focal points in the coalition agreement is the capture and storage of CO₂. Will that become an important part of the new agreement?

‘CO₂ storage is certainly needed to meet the Paris goals, but it is not a final destination. It is simply necessary, but as a society you want to try to prevent CO₂ emissions and CO zonder capture and storage in the future. ‘

Renovation head office

Shell is in transition. Literally. The stately head office of Shell on the Carel van Bylandtlaan in The Hague is under construction. The listed building from 1917 is one of the oldest Shell offices in the Netherlands and is thoroughly renovated and made more energy-efficient a century after construction.

The building was built at the time by the Batavian Petroleum Company (a forerunner of Shell) built by the Bataafsche Aanneming Maatschappij, a forerunner of the current BAM Group.

Shell has remained loyal all these years, because the current renovation is being carried out again by BAM.

In the meantime, the Shell branch in Rijswijk, where Projects & Technology is housed, will be dissolved and the employees will be divided over existing branches in The Hague and Amsterdam. Opposite the closure of Rijswijk is the arrival of a new building for the growing division New Energies in The Hague.
