Anonymous allegations against Shell Oil Company

BY JOHN DONOVAN

I am interested in contacting the author of the buyer review below by a verified purchaser of my EBook available on Amazon.com and many other Amazon sites. The five-star review has only just been brought to my attention.

I would like to know more about the background to the serious allegations made against Shell Oil Company.

BUYER REVIEW OF MY EBOOK

Very Interesting Read. Highly Recommend!

This company’s unsafe practices caused the explosion and death of my father that left a total of 10 children without fathers. They used fraud, coverup, lies and deception and even refused to pay my family Workers Compensation or my father’s funeral. This book has let me know that Shell Oil Company has ruined so many other people’s lives and has no limit on how far they will go to save money and hurt people. read more

SHELL CANADA INSIDER ALLEGATIONS ABOUT CAROLINE GAS PLANT

“Management has been mostly concerned with cutting costs and phasing out plant equipment as it is no longer required.  …culture has been of the “don’t touch F_ck all” variety…” “I chose to work somewhere else because I felt that there was too much corruption and neglect to overcome…”

SHELL CANADA: …they are wanting to sell their Alberta operations….. because there is no money left in it…they have syphoned it all off…

…in Caroline Alberta they had a massive sour gas leak on March 23 2003. It was in the local paper….Caroline Alberta or Sundre Alberta. (Sundre roundup)

I think also on 2010-2011 they had multiple explosions at their Caroline facility supposedly an employee during an explosion at the south compressor station had to be airlifted to hospital and was seriously injured. read more

OPL 245: London court rejects JP Morgan’s objection to lawsuits involving Shell/Eni

Malabu Oil deal: FG claims $1.975b against JP Mogan, Shell, Eni

…London court rejects JP Morgan’s objection to suit

by Eric Ikhilae, Abuja: February 22, 2019

As part of efforts to recover funds lost by the country through the controversial Malabu Oil deal, the Federal Government has initiated two suits against American bank, JP Morgan Chase and two multinational oil companies – Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Eni.

Salihu Isah, spokesman to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN) said, in a statement on Friday, that in the first of the two suits, now pending before the Commercial division of the High Court in London, the FG is claiming $875m against JP Morgan for allegedly allowing the misappropriation of state funds over the Oil Prospecting License, OPL 245. read more

The crooks at USB Bank and Royal Dutch Shell

Former Shell CEO Peter Voser is an unlucky man. He had the incredible misfortune to be in charge of the bad guys at both corporate giants, Shell and UBS Bank simultaneously, while presumably being personally innocent of any criminal acts? What are the chances of that happening? The question of managerial negligence, twice-over, must surely be another matter?

By John Donovan

Printed below is an article published yesterday by BBC News reporting that the “Swiss banking giant UBS has been fined €3.7bn (£3.2bn; $4.2bn) in a French tax fraud case.”

The article goes on to say that “Following similar cases in the US in 2009 and Germany in 2014, the bank accepted large fines.”

During the period of criminal activity the then Chief Executive Officer of Royal Dutch Shell Plc – Peter Voser – was paid millions of Swiss francs in his role as a director of UBS AG. He was also a member of the governance and nominating committee and of the strategy committee. read more

Shell accused of complicity in Nigerian murders

By John Donovan

I heard from a major news organisation that Esther Kiobel brought up my name several times during an interview at the Dutch court hearing yesterday, kindly expressing her thanks for my help.

Esther approached me after the US Supreme Court decision that thwarted on jurisdiction grounds her attempts to sue Shell in the USA for complicity in the murder of her husband, Dr Barinem Kiobel. It took over a decade of litigation to arrive at that decision. read more

Wiesenthal Centre to Royal Dutch Shell CEO: ‘Disassociate Your Company from Glorification of a Nazi War Criminal’

By John Donovan

I became aware today of a letter (see below) which a director of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre sent to Royal Dutch Shell CEO Ben van Beurden on 5 February 2015. The communication stemmed from my campaigning activities that ended with Allseas renaming the worlds largest ship. I will shortly be supplying the Simon Wiesenthal Centre with a trove of evidence about Shell’s Nazi history including its close partnership in Nazi Germany with IG Farben, the chemical giant which manufactured the gas used to exterminate several million Jewish people in the Holocaust. Dutch Directors of the Royal Dutch Shell Group including Sir Henri Deterding helped finance Hitler and the Nazi Party.

“Annul Shell’s dealings with Allseas – a company which apparently celebrates Nazi crimes by glorifying a perpetrator”

Paris, 5 February 2015

In a letter to Royal Dutch Shell CEO, Ben van Beurdon, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels, noted, “Shell has contracted from the Swiss-based offshore pipeline installation and subsea construction company, Allseas Group, their crane-ship Pieter Schelte, to service Brent oil platforms on the British continental shelf.” read more

SHELL INVESTS IN GOOGLE KITE FLYING

Printed below is an English translation of an article published today by the Dutch Financial Times, Financieele Dagblad.

Shell invests money in Google’s energy flyer

Bert van Dijk

ShellRDSA € 27.98 + 0.65% has taken an interest in Makani, a start-up of Google parent company Alphabet, which has developed a kite with which electricity can be produced. That is what Makani CEO Fort Felker announced on Tuesday. Makani is now being further developed as an independent company outside Alphabet.

The investment is made by Shell New Energies, Shell’s business unit that deals with new forms of energy, such as wind and solar energy. Financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.

Great ambition

“Shell has great ambitions to expand renewable energy activities and we see great potential in floating offshore wind technology,” said Dorine Bosman, vice president Shell Wind Development in a press statement. According to Shell, Shell wants to further develop and test the energy-flyer technology together with Makani at sea.

It is Shell’s second investment in a company that can generate electricity using kite technology. Previously Shell already invested money in the Scottish Kite Power Systems through its investment arm Shell Ventures. Makani has developed a lightweight wing with eight propellers attached. The kite is released via a cable, after which it flies in circles in the air. Electricity is generated here, which is led back to the ground via the cable. read more

OPL245: Former Nigerian Minister Admits Receiving $10m Bribe From Dan Etete For Malabu Oil Deal

Latest news on the OPL 245 scandal involving several senior Shell executives, including Malcolm Brinded and MI6 “people” hired by Shell, as admitted by RDS Chief Executive Ben van Beurden during a telephone call surreptitiously recorded by investigators. During the same conversation, on the spur of the moment and perhaps shocked by the news that RDS global HQ was being searched for evidence, he issued instructions that if carried out, could qualify as obstruction of a criminal investigation.  read more

Alarm Bells Ring Again About Shell Prelude Safety Issues

By John Donovan

For several years, retired Royal Dutch Shell experts, including Bill Campbell, have rung alarm bells about safety issues in relation to Shell’s Prelude FLNG project. See Royal Dutch Shell Prelude to disaster 

We have also published related information supplied to us by an insider. The person in question has been intimately involved in the project at a high level. He is deeply concerned that warnings issued to Shell (and other parties) have been ignored and that financial considerations are taking priority over safety issues. The whistleblower supplied me with internal information and photographic material. 

Bill Campbell made a chilling assessment: “The revolutionary concept of offshore LNG installations (FLNG) is said to have economic and environmental advantages. A distinct disadvantage however is that the risks to health and safety of persons employed offshore on the LNG FPSO’s, such as Prelude, will be higher, when compared to onshore LNG plants of similar capacity, specifically the potential for loss of life; …loss of containment of hydrocarbons is likely to occur on Prelude during its operational life, either through flaws in the design, human error or failure to inspect and maintain. It’s almost inevitable.  It’s only to be hoped that the consequences of these losses never reach their full potential.”  read more

Total may compete with Shell/PGGM in a takeover bid for Eneco 

Printed below is an English translation of an article published today by the Dutch Financial Times, Financieele Dagblad.

Total may challenge Shell in violation of the acquisition of energy company Eneco

From our Editor

The French energy group Total is considering making an offer for the Dutch energy company Eneco. The financial press agency Bloomberg reports this on the basis of information from insiders.

Total would already have counsellors in hand to study the pros and cons of a bid. If the French continue this plan, they may expel Shell who has publicly announced that they want to acquire Eneco.

About three weeks ago, it became known that the British-Dutch oil and gas multinational and pension provider PGGM wanted to bid together for Eneco, one of the three major energy companies in the Netherlands. The combination was the first party that had publicly announced its interest. read more

Shell stealthily seeks a green future

Printed below is an English translation of an article published today by the Dutch Financial Times, Financieele Dagblad.

Shell is looking for a green future in silence

How should Shell still make money if the role of fossil fuels becomes smaller and smaller? The company is sorting out with investments in green start-ups.

Beeldbewerking FD studio

Bert van Dijk

The construction of a large wind farm in the North Sea, an offer for Eneco and the acquisition of the charging station company NewMotion; it is the big steps that everyone can see that oil and gas multinational Shell is putting to a little less fossil. But under the bonnet of Shell and out of view of the general public, many smaller investments in start-ups give at least as interesting an insight into Shell’s view of the future. A search for the green future of Shell. read more

Shell Brent Bravo deaths caused by criminal negligence

The ugly truth behind the deaths – criminal negligence, corruption, falsification of safety records, conducted under a brutal, mentally unbalanced Asset Manager operating a Touch F*** All regime, supported by Malcolm Brinded, has been covered up by Shell for almost two decades. Shell got away with manslaughter.

EU intransigent on the backstop could backfire

Reading between the lines, Dublin’s own assessment is that the outcome from a no-deal Brexit could actually bring about what they fear most – the return of a hard border.

Irish backstop farce engineered by Leo Varadkar and his deputy Simon Coveney (above)

By John Donovan

The duo representing Ireland in the Brexit negotiations have consistently insisted on the need for a backstop in the EU/UK Brexit withdrawal agreement to prevent any return to a hard border between the UK and the Irish Republic.

Leo Varadkar and his deputy Simon Coveney have persuaded all other remaining EU member countries to insist on the inclusion of a backstop in any Brexit withdrawal agreement.

Britain has consistently stated that there will be no return on its account to a hard border.

Although the backstop issue is the main block to the withdrawal agreement being approved by the UK Parliament, the Irish have continued to insist on a cast iron backstop mechanism with no time limit.

It is only in recent days that alarm bells have started to ring in Dublin and elsewhere about how the EU intransigent on the backstop could spectacularly backfire. Matters that Coveney would prefer to keep secret have begun to seep out.

Extract from Irish Times Article

…when Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas told the daily press briefing in Brussels yesterday that in the event of a no-deal Brexit, “you will have a hard border” in Ireland, alarm bells sounded in Dublin.

Extract from The Guardian

The warning came a day after Irish police chiefs denied they had drawn up secret plans to send 600 officers to beef up border security if Britain crashes out of the EU on 29 March without an agreement.

Extracts end

Varadkar is now nervously warning about the prospect of British police and army checkpoints reappearing on the border in the event of a no-deal scenario.

Varadkar warns of army checkpoints on border after a no-deal Brexit

Chaotic Brexit could see uniformed border police, says Irish PM

Brexit: Soldiers may return to Irish Border, Varadkar warns

Reading between the lines, Dublin’s own assessment is that the outcome from a no-deal Brexit could actually bring about what they fear most – the return of a hard border.

This time with a mostly hostile population on the UK side of the border pissed off by Irish government unhelpful mischief in the exploitation of Brexit. How would that help those who dream of a United Ireland?

Varaskar has made plain his disdain for the democratic Brexit referendum vote and is trying to thwart the outcome. A reckless gamble that could indeed backfire badly, irrespective of the nationality of police or soldiers on the border.

If it ends up with forces in place on either side of the border, who knows what might happen, bearing in mind that terrorists could deliberately create an incident that could ignite a war. A potentially very dangerous scenario that could happen.
