Alleged Shell violation of U.S. Export Restrictions


Dear John,

As a Shell insider I need to stay anonymous but I will point you to the right story.

As you possible know, there are export restrictions to export software and technology which is US based to restricted countries like Iran, Sudan, Syria, North Korea and Cuba. Shell violates this export restrictions as Shell is using software and technology without a valid export license.

One example will be that in the joint venture from Shell and Sinopec both companies are using Microsoft Windows Operation system. They never got a valid license from the US government. It looks like that in some cases Shell take the business risk only for profit to make business with terrorists.

The joint venture in Iran is operating in

Etelaat Newspaper Building
South Naft Ave
Mirdamad Blvd

Other violations happen in Syria and Sudan.

The other problem there is that Shell help Sinopec also with technical expertise in exploration and production. This possible will also violate current restrictions special from the US.

Companies and special oil companies which support Iran run the risk to loose all government contracts with the US. You will not find any information on the official Shell website about the joint venture in Iran as Shell is trying very hard to hide this.

From my point of view the Shell export compliance office must be aware about the violation from software and technology. The top management, Malcolm Brinded up to the CEO must be aware about the other violations with the joint venture.

I trust you that you keep my address confidential and that you take this maybe as a starting point to challenge Shell. The public need to know about how unethical Shell run this business just for profit.

With kind regards
