De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek N.V.

Richard van Staden ten Brink, one of our criminal enforcement partners, wrote an op-ed article in Het Financieele Dagblad of 30 March 2015.

It can happen to any company. An employee commits fraud for the employee’s own personal gain, for the company’s benefit, or both. In this situation, a company has no other option but to start an internal investigation and impose disciplinary action. Often at this stage, the Public Prosecution Service is unaware of the investigation, and the company needs to decide whether to report the matter to law enforcement authorities. read more

Shell Pensioners Revolt

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 07.51.21

By John Donovan

Trouble is brewing for Shell in the UK as Shell pensioners revolt against the proposed change of name of their association. The “Shell Pensioners’ Association” (SPA) is open to all Shell pensioners in the UK and arranges a raft of social and other events through its Branch network. It also publishes a quarterly magazine, “SPA News”.

With the latest edition comes an announcement of a plan to change the name of the Club to “Shell Pecten Association” – the rationale being that younger new Shell pensioners are put off joining the SPA because they don’t wish to be seen as pensioners! No evidence to support this claim is provided. read more

The Groningen gas field is a giant natural gas field located near Slochteren in Groningen province in the northeastern part of the Netherlands. Discovered in 1959, it is the largest natural gas field in Europe.

The venture was a money spinner for Shell, Exxon, the Dutch government and the local population. read more

By John Donovan

I have provided a link to a 15 page document dated 3 October 2014, which Shell supplied to OSSL, the Irish company that has made serious allegations against Shell.

The information in the document may be of interest to some readers who have followed the long running saga and likewise newspapers and TV and radio stations who have covered the story.

As will be seen, Shell repeatedly states that OSSL has demanded money from them when all claims by OSSL against Shell have, according to Shell, already been settled.  read more

Screen Shot 2013-08-18 at 08.30.15Swathes of land and waterways in the Niger Delta are once again blighted with oil only months on from Shell’s clean-up efforts…

Extracts from a This is Money article by Rob Davies published 26 May 2014

Shell’s efforts to contain spills in Nigeria are making stuttering progress, with supposedly restored sites still mired in oil, a new report warns. Difficulty with stopping spills, often caused by oil theft from pipelines, further illustrates why Shell has opted to sell four major onshore blocks in Nigeria. Swathes of land and waterways in the Niger Delta are once again blighted with oil only months on from Shell’s clean-up efforts, claims campaign group Platform. The firm faced protests from several campaign groups over its Nigerian operations at its recent annual meeting. read more

Bumper £8m pay package for Shell boss Peter Voser (Daily Mail Article)

Shell suffered an embarrassing 10% shareholder rebellion against its executive pay report on Tuesday.

Almost 8% of the investor base voted against the company’s remuneration policy, which handed its outgoing chief executive Peter Voser a €3.3m (£2.8m) cash bonus in a year when profits dropped by $1.6bn (£1.05bn) to $27bn.

A further 2% of investors abstained from the vote at Shell’s annual meeting in The Hague.

The bonus took Voser’s total salary package to €5.1m, down from €5.2m the previous year, although this is still more than double the $2.7m package given to BP boss Bob Dudley last year. Dudley received no bonus as the company continues to deal with the consequences of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. read more

Rupert Neate: The Observer, Sunday 19 May 2013

Angry about the oil giants allegedly fixing the price of petrol for more than a decade? You’ll have a chance to harangue Shell – its offices were raided by European Union officials investigating the claims last week – at its annual general meeting on Tuesday. But only if you get on a plane to the Hague.

Royal Dutch Shell, the British part of which was founded by Lord Bearsted in 1897, has been regularly holding its meeting in the Dutch city most famous for trying war criminals. read more

Voser, the man ultimately responsible for Shell’s screw-up in the Arctic – a farce befitting a low budget Monty Python production, the man on whose watch Shell’s market capitalization has sunk below Chevron, making Shell the third largest of the Western oil majors, not number 2, and also the man responsible for robbing UK Shell shareholders of a UK forum for this years AGM, has been named Petroleum Executive of the Year 2013 Under the circumstances – his transformation of Royal Dutch Shell into a humiliated third rate oil company – the credibility of this annual award has been severely dented. read more
