Time wasters

Half an hour to pickup a call, even worse to answer a chat and then agent put the phone down on you. The staff in customer service is rude and incompetent. It is appalling that this company does not value the time of its customers and operates by such low standards. This is not what you expect from a global brand like Shell. What a shame. Will happily rejoin EDF Energy read more

Broken Shell.

If you have an issue with Shell Broadband and have 90 minutes to waste listening to the same music over and over then Phone them, and when you eventually get through, they will transfer you to another department, more music, but you will never get through and it seems, that is what they want. I guess the same would apply to Shell Energy. read more

Ofcom investigates whether Shell Energy failed to tell customers about better deals

Ofcom investigates whether Shell Energy failed to tell customers about better deals

29 April 2022: Ofcom has opened an investigation into whether Shell Energy has complied with our rules to issue end-of-contract and annual best tariff notifications to its broadband and landline customers.

On 15 February 2020, we introduced rules that require broadband, mobile, home phone and pay-TV companies to warn their customers when their minimum contract period is coming to an end, and what they could save by signing up to a new deal. They must also remind any customers who remain out of contract about their best deals every year. read more

Energy giant Shell fined £50,000 by North Sea regulators

Evening Standard

Energy giant Shell fined £50,000 by North Sea regulators

The North Sea Transition Authority imposed the penalty for breaches of production consents.

By Katrine Bussey: 28 April 2022

Energy giant shell has been fined £50,000 by North Sea regulators for breaching production consents.

The North Sea Transition Authority (NSTA) requires the consents for companies to produce oil and gas.

It has now fined Shell and served the company with a sanction notice for breaching five field consents.

The NSTA said adhering to production consents is “an indicator of good stewardship of fields, and is an important component of a stable, well-regulated industry which has the trust and confidence of investors and the public”. read more

Absolutely terrible customer service

Absolutely terrible customer service. When you ring every agent tells a different story they promise to call back and don’t . Very frustrating just can’t get passed young uninformed agents and they won’t pass on to a superior just can’t get answers !!

AVOID this supplier at all costs

Shell Energy caused me untold problems when I moved out of my flat. Instead of closing the account after I’d paid in full, they kept the account open, continued to charge me AND the new tenant so essentially running two accounts on one property. Given I wasn’t living in the property and having passed on all the details of the new tenant, Shell kept texting me to tell me to make a payment, eventually threatening me with creditors, despite not living in the flat, and having paid in full on my departure. This situation was incredibly stressful, and it transpired that the new tenant was ALSO being charged. In the end she had to pay two bills, one of £333 for the bill in my name, despite me having left months ago plus her ongoing direct debit. That bill was eventually refunded but it took months to get it resolved and in the mean time Shell was charging two customers for one energy supply which is terrible. Therefore my advice is AVOID SHELL ENERGY AT ALL COSTS. read more

Appalling broadband

Appalling broadband. The worst EVER! Never any issues when was with Post Office Broadband, so…, with Shell, drops literally every few seconds.

Shell Broadband worst service ever

My contract started last November 2021 and since day 1 my Wi-Fi never worked. I have an opened case since 6 months because they weren’t able to solve it. I’ve called the customer service so many times and it’s just a waste of time. They kept asking for money even to leave the contract and they only sent me an engineer on February. The engineer proved that there’s no fault in my house and they still charged me for it. I’m not free to leave the company as they are going to charge me for it. They gave me some credit back but they are using it to pay the engineer and basically since I’ve received this credit my Wi-Fi stopped working at all. I cannot even see the line. This situation is creating me so much anxiety and stress. I’m not even sleeping at night time. Nothing like that ever happened to me in my all entire life. I regretted so much signing that contract. Don’t join it because it’s the worst company ever. I never received the service I’m paying for and they only keep asking me for money. There’s nothing worst than that. I wish I could come back and never sign this contract. I’m trapped. read more

Shell tightens restrictions on Russian oil buying

Shell tightens restrictions on Russian oil buying

By Ron Bousso and Rowena Edwards

April 27 (Reuters) – Shell SHEL.L on Wednesday tightened its restrictions on buying Russian oil, saying it would no longer accept refined products with any Russian content, including blended fuels.

Shell last month said it would phase out buying Russian crude and its involvement in all Russian hydrocarbons from oil to natural gas, after facing an uproar over buying a Russian crude cargo in the days following Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine. read more

BP and Shell record mega-profits as firms exploit soaring energy prices

BP and Shell record mega-profits as firms exploit soaring energy prices

RECORD gas and oil prices since the Ukraine conflict have helped deliver bumper dividends for shareholders in energy companies.

By TOM HILL

13:56, Wed, Apr 27, 2022 | UPDATED: 13:57, Wed, Apr 27, 2022 Both gas and oil prices had already been pushed up over winter as supply failed to keep pace with demand bouncing back from the pandemic. Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine prices have been squeezed even further with oil soaring past $100 (£79.64) a barrel to heights of up to $130 (£103.52). The increased revenue from energy has helped deliver soaring returns for investors with the oil sector seeing dividends rise 29 percent in the first quarter of 2022 according to data firm Link Group. Link points to an “astonishing rebound in oil prices” which it says has “delivered a dramatic turnaround” for energy firms. The contribution of energy firms helped drive up UK dividends by an average 12.2 percent on an adjusted basis.

Among the top 10 dividend payers for 2022 are Shell, BP and National Grid.

The growing profits for energy firms has attracted criticism given the UK’s current cost of living crisis with some calling for a windfall tax on the gains.

So far though the Government has dismissed the idea with Justice Secretary Dominic Raab calling the idea “disastrous”. read more

Friends of the Earth warns Shell directors they face personal liability if energy firm doesn’t clean up its act

Shell directors risk ‘personal liability’ if they fail to boost the energy giant’s green credentials, an environmental group has claimed.

The threat to senior figures, including chief executive Ben van Beurden, was made in a recent letter from Friends of the Earth’s Netherlands branch, Milieudefensie. read more

Oil giant Shell feels heat over giant $21 billion Prelude floating LNG plant

Oil giant Shell feels heat over giant $21 billion Prelude floating LNG plant

By energy reporter Daniel Mercer

Key points:

  • The Prelude project has been beset by cost and time blowouts, as well as technical problems
  • A lobbyist and former engineer says safety issues are the biggest concern
  • There are claims Prelude may never pay royalties for the gas it processes off Australia’s north-west coast

When Dutch-Anglo oil giant Shell decided to build a massive floating gas factory known as Prelude in 2011, it was billed as the dawn of a new era for the industry.

Australia was midway through a once-in-a-lifetime $300 billion splurge that would make the country the world’s biggest producer of super-chilled, shipped gas.

Floating gas plants were supposed to be the logical evolution, vacuuming up gas wherever they went and making fortunes for shareholders and taxpayers. read more

Shell board ‘could be liable’ for failing to tackle CO2: Milieudefensie

April 25, 2022

Environmental campaign group Milieudefensie has written to the members of the board at Shell warning them they could be held liable for failing to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions despite being ordered by judges to do so last year.

Last May, a court in The Hague said that Shell must play its part in the fight against dangerous climate change and ‘reduce the carbon dioxide emitted by the Shell group and its customers by 45% net by the end of 2030, compared with the level in 2019.’ read more

Ukraine urges Johnson to ensure ‘not a drop’ of Russian oil reaches the UK

Shell, one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, has pledged to withdraw from Russian oil products, but…

Ukraine’s government has urged the UK to ensure “not a single drop of Russian oil enters the country”, as it pushed for a “total and immediate” boycott on Russian fossil fuels.

Oleg Ustenko, economic adviser to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, said it was “no time for half measures”. It comes amid concerns Britain may adopt a definition of Russian oil that allows some Kremlin supplies into the country, even under the impending embargo. read more
