Shell beats forecasts as profits more than double

By Michael Race: Business reporter, BBC News: 27 Oct 2022

Shell has reported profits have more than doubled between July and September helped by high oil and gas prices.

The energy giant said underlying profits reached $9.5bn (£8.2bn) in the third quarter.

That compares to $4.2bn during the same period last year though it is a slowdown from the second quarter when it announced record figures.

The invasion of Ukraine sparked oil and gas prices to rise as nations pledged to cut dependence on Russian energy. read more

Energy company Shell reports profits of $9.5bn for Q3 of 2022

The chief executive of Shell had himself called on the government to tax oil and gas companies in order to protect the poorest people in society from soaring energy costs.

Energy company Shell reports profits of $9.5bn for Q3 of 2022 but not at record levels seen in first half of year

The London-listed oil and gas company had reported record profits in the first half of the year amid soaring oil and gas prices.

Shell has reported operating profits of $9.5bn (£8.19bn) for the third quarter of this year, lower than that of the three months before but still more than double the same period in 2021. read more

Shell is possibly the worst broadband supplier in the world

“We are experiencing high call volumes” blah blah blah. Why not employ some more people if you are always so busy????? I was 149 in the queue. That is ridiculous!!!!

Say no to Shell broadband

1, Waiting over a hour to talk to a customer service advisor.
2. Overcharged for a package of £47/month (from 153mbps to 304mbps; advertising with 290mbps average speed). However, the actual average download speed just 75mbps. And never fix the low speed problem. The internet will be suspended for 5 minutes between 2am to 3am.
3. Cancellation team is the worst customer service provider team in the world. Threatens me with £290 early termination fee. Bad and rude attitude. read more

DO NOT USE SHELL

DO NOT USE SHELL. We have had the worst internet connection for months now and have even had to upgrade our phone contracts just to get online. We have contacted shell several times, who have done absolutely nothing to resolve the issue. They are now trying to charge us 273 as an early termination charge which I refuse to pay as I will not pay for a product that DOES NOT WORK!! LEAVE ME ALONE SHELL!!

Very low internet speeds and terrible customer service provided by Shell Energy Broadband

My basic problem with Shell is that every time I call, I’m on the line for 40 – 50 minutes, most of it ‘on hold’: “Actually speaking to a human is near impossible unless you have a spare 2hrs to spend trying to get through.”

Called to renew /upgrade contract. After agreeing I recieved two emails first with confirmation of 18 month instead of 12 month. Second email telling I am coming to the end of my contract soon and info on continuing price and an offer higher then just agreed. Customer service person spoke garbled english and had no clue after 23 minutes about my new contract. Then cut me off. Absoultely useless CS. read more

Terrible customer service for Broadband Customers !!

I haven’t had my first bill yet and I spent so much time holding the line with their customer service. Never manage to have a resolution but only be passed between customer service, retention service and technical support.. not a single person has taken ownership of the issue or got anywhere close to giving me a solution. I’m dreading the thought I’m now stuck with them for over a year. What a massive mistake !!
PS Not once I’ve been given the name of the person I was talking to; this makes me very worried about the authenticity of the previous reviews praising individuals for their “great” service !! read more

Terrible Broadband Provider

Terrible Broadband provider.

Not had any service for months even though paying for high speed fibre, I have been on the phone for literally hours every week only for them to keep telling me my fault has been resolved.

This morning was the 4th time I’ve taken time away from work for an engineer, to fail to turn up or even call me.

After an hour on hold this morning, they advised its not possible for me to speak to a manager, to make a complaint, or basically do anything to resolve the situation. read more

Shell broadband speed is glacially slow

Avoid at all costs

I didn’t ask to be a Shell Broadband customer. I signed up for Post Office broadband, but Shell bought them out and existing PO Broadband customers were forced to migrate to Shell or pay an early termination penalty.  Shell customer service is hopeless, you waste huge amounts of time on the phone trying to contact these people, the broadband speed is glacially slow (and my broadband was meant to be fast but it was hopeless).  I’ve just got rid of them and had to pay £157 for the privilege. Don’t even think about becoming a Shell Broadband customer, it’s not worth the time, money and stress. It’s a rip off. read more

Was switched to shell when previous company went bust. shell by far are the worst company I have ever delt with . 2 visits to fit a smart meter. Sending me a letter saying they have to increase my direct debit to over £400 a month way UNDER my usage.as I will not pay a ridiculous amount each month I cancelled the direct debit and simply pay each month for actual energy used not a penny more not a penny left. Shell have marked my credit file a month in arrears.but not updated it for over 3 months. Customer service is awful they simply too big to care as soon as I am able to switch I will be leaving my money be better spent elsewhere read more

Bombardment of complaints about Shell Energy Continues

14 June 2022

The content below is sourced from current verifiable customer reviews of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

Very poor company, terrible service

Very poor company, ridiculous estimated bills, avoid at all cost

Terrible company

Terrible company, poor customer relations, threatening text messages when I have upped my direct debit with them every month and make one off payments which they don’t seem to apply to my account. It is impossible to speak to a human being, you have to leave your account number and phone number on an automated line with a promise of a call back that never comes. I have done an online enquiry form disputing what I am paying and don’t even get an acknowledgement. I have so far paid them £511 this month alone yet my balance has gone up not down. This company are an absolute joke!! The sooner I can move supplier the better. I am only with them because pure planet went bust and I was automatically moved to shell. They clearly can’t cope with the new volume of customers but are more than happy to take our money! read more
