$45m claim against Shell Brunei involving another leak

By John Donovan

Amrtur Corporation, a supplier of drill pipes and other oil industry services, has sent a letter before action making a $45m claim against Shell’s Brunei business. The move is said to be triggered by cuts resulting from the fall in oil prices. According to a report in the FT: “Amrtur asserts it suffered lost revenues of B$61.2m ($45m) between 2012 and 2016 due to alleged breaches of its contracts with Brunei Shell Petroleum Company, the 50-50 partnership between the government and Royal Dutch Shell.”

Shell is one of 12 defendants along with the Mohammad Yasmin Umar, the Energy Minister of the notoriously corrupt Brunei regime. Perfect partners for Shell.

As a result of a leaked letter regarding the dispute, the claim is said to have gone viral on social media.
