Shell’s “Dragon” Scheme: Seeking a License to Pollute

Posted by John Donovan 4 April 2024

In a move that surprises absolutely no one, Shell is angling for a long-term license from the US government for their latest gas project in Venezuela. Because apparently, when it comes to exploiting natural resources and wrecking the planet, Shell just can’t get enough.

Dubbed the “Dragon” field, this little venture is estimated to contain a whopping 4.2 trillion cubic feet of gas – because why settle for small-scale environmental destruction when you can go big, right?

But wait, it gets better. Shell’s got a cozy little partnership going on here, roping in state-owned companies from both Venezuela and Trinidad and Tobago. Because why should Shell take all the blame for pillaging the earth when they can spread it around a bit?

The US government, in a move that surprises absolutely no one, granted Trinidad a two-year license to negotiate and develop the Dragon project back in 2023. But that’s not enough for Shell – oh no. They want more time to wreak havoc, so they’re pushing for a longer-term license. Because apparently, two years just isn’t enough time to ruin the environment properly.

And let’s not forget about the money. Shell’s not about to invest over a billion dollars without some assurance that they’ll get to keep on polluting. Because when it comes to prioritizing profits over the planet, Shell’s got their priorities straight.

But don’t worry, folks, Shell isn’t the only one in on this little game. The Venezuelan government is throwing their weight behind the project too, awarding a nice, juicy 30-year license to Shell and their buddies over at Trinidad’s National Gas Company. Because why stop at ruining one country’s environment when you can ruin two?

And as for the US government’s response to all this? Well, they’re keeping pretty quiet – surprise, surprise. Because when it comes to turning a blind eye to environmental destruction in the name of profit, the US government’s got that down to an art form.

So there you have it, folks. Shell’s latest scheme to plunder the planet for profit, with a little help from their friends in government. Because when it comes to corporate greed and environmental devastation, Shell’s leading the charge – straight to hell.
