Slaughter and May Reservations over Royal Dutch Shell SEC filing

I wonder how many ordinary stock holders in Royal Dutch Shell Plc are aware of the extensive reservations set out by Slaughter and May in Exhibit 5.1 attached to an SEC filing involving gazillions of dollars, in which Royal Dutch Shell Plc is the sole guarantor?; e.g. “undertakings, covenants and indemnities contained in the Indenture may not […]

Jeroen van der Veer: Hypocrite Supreme

Mr Van der Veer (shown right) is no fan of this website. In January 2008, as was reported in The Times, we published a leaked email from him in which he forecast that world demand for oil and gas would outstrip supply within 7 years. Events has shown that he was talking nonsense on that […]

SHELL SPONSORED CORRUPTION OF THE IRISH POLICE

Under the circumstances, I wondered if a pilot scheme was underway in Ireland already, with Shell sponsoring the Garda?

In Shell’s case, a vast amount of information, which fully met Wikipedia guidelines, but was deemed damaging to Shell’s reputation, has been either covertly removed, or removed in dubious circumstances by editors hiding their identity behind an alias, as they are allowed to do.

Shell Buckets, Superbuckets and Rustbuckets

How come that nobody dared say what everyone in the world saw (thanks to the Donovans) that you simply cannot go to this most sensitive area in the world with a couple of old rustbuckets?

Verdict on Royal Dutch Shell CFO Simon Henry

Shell internal email correspondence irrefutably proves that Simon Henry was aware in March 2002 that “reserves bookings were made that should not have been made”. Walter van de Vijver, the “sick and tired” Chief Executive of Shell EP, gave the information directly to him.
