Comments on: Shell Blog News and information on Royal Dutch Shell Plc. Wed, 24 Sep 2014 14:23:14 +0000 hourly 1 By: Relieved Wed, 24 Sep 2014 14:23:14 +0000 I have been reading the recent comments and as a former Shell USA employee I can only shake my head in disgust. There was a day when was a ‘good company’ to work for, and it was truly fun to work for Shell (at least Shell USA), but that was long ago. Management proliferated (mostly the mediocre types) and the company has gone to sh*t as a result. I doubt Shell today can keep good staff for very long. As a result my guess is that Shell is going to f*ck up big time one of these days and pull a BP Gulf of Mexico style stunt that will damage the company beyond repair.

Dear Sir,


We Congratulate the Country Chair and Managing Director (MD) of Shell (SPDC), Mr. Mutiu Sunmonu, for being among prominent Nigerian Professionals to be honoured by the Federal Government of Nigeria with the National Honours Award; Commander of the Order of the Niger (CON).

This has been our advice to the Nigerian Government right from the Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo’s (Rtd) regime; that the National Honours should not only be conferred on Politicians who are known to have looted the nation’s treasury, but the National Honours Award should most importantly be given to prominent professionals in other sectors of the Nigerian economy.

We are glad that the present Nigerian Government has followed our advice in this regard, by recognizing prominent professionals like the Country Chair/MD of Shell (SPDC) to be among the recipients of the 2013/2014 National Honours at the formal investiture this year in Abuja. Mutiu is considered among the ‘non-government’ recipients that have contributed to the economic growth of Nigeria. This is also the first time a serving Nigerian MD/CEO of Shell (SPDC) will be given such a National Award.

We join in Congratulating Mr. Mutiu Sunmonu for the said National Award.

Zik Gbemre, JP

By: motivadog Tue, 23 Sep 2014 15:10:25 +0000 although this is about Norco, I can honestly say the words back stabber, rude, mean spirited, bullying, vindictive, inadequate and many others too numerous to list could describe the supervisors at the Motiva terminal where I worked and would still like to be working, but It seems the good ol’ boy (and girl) network is the accepted management style at Motiva. I was told that most management people are untouchable no matter how wrong they are, or what they do! I wanted to work a few more years, but I left one month after making my 80 points, took the pension and got another job. It all comes down to ” the names may change, but the bulls**ts the same” no matter where in Motiva you are, or were employed!

By: oldtimer63 Tue, 23 Sep 2014 15:09:38 +0000 Shell Oil is one of the most corrupt companies on the face of the Earth. No doubt the former secret service guy would make them nervous. No telling what he saw or stumbled across. I’ll bet this goes far beyond some loud-mouth lady being pretentious and crappy. I know a few active and former secret service agents, and performing a “surveillance,” especially one so lame, on one is not a good idea at all. These guys are heavily trained operators and I can guarantee you whomever did the surveillance had no idea what kind of potential danger he was in. Once with the Government, always with the government, that I can tell you about secret service agents. Also, who in the hell does such things? Ridiculous. I smell lawsuit, and if I were Shell I’d pay this guy a large sum of cash before he rips them a new one.
