Another PR blunder from the House of Shell or a tragic piece of misreporting?

FROM OUR SHELL NEWS ARCHIVE OCTOBER 2005

The Guardian: Shell shows cracks: “Another PR blunder from the House of Shell or a tragic piece of misreporting?

“Ian McCredie, head of global security services at Shell, is reported to have told a Chatham House conference a tale of how up to 70 staff have been kidnapped over the last year in Nigeria. Mr McCredie then went on to slag off the royal family in Saudi Arabia, where Shell is desperately trying to ingratiate itself, before moving on to Russia – another key market for the Anglo Dutch giant.”

Another PR blunder from the House of Shell or a tragic piece of misreporting? Following on from a Shell press officer telling a TV reporter on camera not to bother to listen to its then-UK chairman Ron Oxburgh about climate change because he will soon be gone, comes a front page belter in yesterday’s FT.

AN INTRIGUING TURN OF EVENTS IN SHELL ESPIONAGE MACHINATIONS

By John Donovan

Regular visitors will be aware of our extensive history stretching back over a decade of being the subjects of intense Royal Dutch Shell espionage activity.

Shell admitted in writing its association with an undercover agent caught red-handed at our offices using fake credentials. Shell informed us that he was not the only investigative agent on our case, but refused to reveal the nature and scope of other intelligence gathering activities.

Shell categorically denied any connection with other sinister events, including threats made against us and our key witnesses in the run up to a High Court action against Shell; burglaries at the homes of our lawyer, our main witness and our own home during the same period, when Shell related documents were examined; interviews conducted with our key witnesses and our solicitor by undercover agents pretending to be journalists for well known newspapers.

Sir, The FT reports (“Oil groups face rise in threats to security”, October 4) on remarks by Ian McCredie, head of Global Security Services at Shell International, at a conference on political risk.

Mr McCredie described the increasing manifestations of insecurity that Shell and other oil companies face around the world. Threats include attacks on oil facilities, corrupt officials, industrial espionage, kidnapping, piracy and the potential for large-scale political instability. Many of these threats derive from weak governance, but that in turn reflects deeper problems that many societies experience in meeting the demands of the modern era.
