From a leaked Shell email: More Shell Appointments under Voser Restructuring

By John Donovan

Shell’s attempts at stemming the flow of leaked Royal Dutch Shell confidential information to this website using external security organizations, involving sinister “invisible” (covert) activity, has self-evidently been less than successful. The flow has increased substantially over recent months, as regular visitors and Shell management will have noticed.


It appears that the involvement of “external contacts”, with FBI connections, resulted from concern in June 2009 over postings on our Shell Blog relating to Tom Purves, a Shell / Motiva Vice President.  Mr Purves and his alleged cronies, collectively described as “The Motiva Mafia”, have been the subject of serious allegations from our contributors and remain the target of hostile postings.

The leaked information is of interest to Shell suppliers, the media and rival oil companies who are no doubt laughing themselves silly at the continuing predicament Shell is in. We will shortly publish Shell internal documents confirming that Shell decided long ago that it will never take legal action against us. Too much Shell “internal laundry” – some badly soiled and extremely smelly – to be aired in open court.

This is what Shell Media said to Fox News about us:

“John and Alfred Donovan well known in UK / Hague. They perceive Shell played them and so have made it their mission to embarrass, belittle and criticize Shell, which they do quite well. Their website, is an excellent source of group news and comment and I recommend it far above what our own group internal comms puts out.”

What a great endorsement that Shell never thought would fall into our hands.

The latest leaked information on Shell appointments is printed below.
