Investigation into Shell’s shadowy entanglement with the Dutch government

We are going to investigate Shell’s entanglement with the Dutch government.

APRIL 15, 2019: THE NETHERLANDS

A group of journalists have launched a mass freedom of information campaign in an attempt to chart Shell’s political influence in the Netherlands.

Requests have been submitted to 17 government institutions – nine ministries, three provincial administrations and five municipalities – asking for all documents originating form or relating to the oil company.

The Platform Authentieke Journalistiek (PAJ) submitted the requests in association with investigative website Follow The Money (FTM), which will publish the results on its website as the Shell Papers.

It has set up a dashboard where the documents will be uploaded in full as they come in and which allows readers to track the progress of all requests for information made under the freedom of information law or wet openbaarheid van bestuur (WOB).

On its website, FTM said it wanted to establish ‘the influence of Shell on Dutch public administration regarding, for example, economic, financial, international, environment and even education policy’.

The PAJ defines itself as a co-operative association of young researchers who aim to collate and publish information ‘which contributes to the political struggle of people who are affected by exclusion, exploitation and other forms of injustice’.

The significance of Shell for the Dutch economy and society is hard to overestimate.

Since its foundation at the end of the 19th century, the company has had close ties with the Dutch government. Both the Netherlands and Shell shareholders have benefited from this. read more

Extinction Rebellion protest: Shell HQ windows smashed as thousands of climate change activists shut down major London streets

At fossil fuel company Shell’s London headquarters, activists daubed “Shell kills” on its walls and reportedly glued themselves to its windows. Images showed shattered glass in front entrance’s revolving doors.

Thousands of environmental activists have shut down some of central London’s busiest roads in an attempt to force the government to address escalating climate change.

Members of Extinction Rebellion (XR) took over roads around Parliament Square, Oxford Circus, Marble Arch, Waterloo Bridge and Piccadilly Circus late on Monday morning, in what they hope will be the UK element of an international week of protest.

Organisers said they planned to occupy the streets day and night until at least Wednesday, with many taking part willing to be arrested. read more

Shell is investing $300 million in planting trees

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

Shell is investing $300 million in planting trees

Bert van Dijk: 9 April 2019

Shell will invest $ 300 million in planting trees in the coming three years. As part of the global investment program, Shell is investing more than € 17 million in the outside fund of Staatsbosbeheer. Both organizations want to plant more than five million trees in the coming twelve years. It is about the largest planting in the past hundred years. Shell announced this on Monday.

The global program must help Shell to achieve its goals of reducing CO₂.

Cooperation with business

“We invest in the Netherlands in, among other things, offshore wind energy, solar energy, electric mobility, biofuels and energy efficiency, but CO₂ compensation is also an important part of achieving climate goals,” said Marjan van Loon, president Director of Shell Nederland in a statement. read more

THE TIMES: Shell branches out into tree-planting campaign

April 9 2019, 12:01am, The Times

Europe’s biggest oil company will plant millions of trees as part of a $300 million plan to reduce its carbon footprint.

Royal Dutch Shell said that it also would give motorists the option of paying more for fuel to fund projects offsetting the emissions that they would generate by driving.

The one cent per litre voluntary levy is being launched in the Netherlands this month and will be rolled out at Shell’s petrol stations in Britain this year.

The Anglo-Dutch energy group employs about 80,000 people worldwide. It reported profits of $24 billion last year, mainly from producing and selling oil and gas. read more

SHELL TO CHARGE CUSTOMERS EXTRA FOR ‘CO2 NEUTRAL’ FUEL

From next week Wednesday, Shell will offer customers in the Netherlands the option to pay one cent extra per liter of fuel. The Dutch oil and gas giant will then use that extra money to compensate for CO2 emissions. “This offers customers in the Netherlands an interim solution as long as electric driving is not yet affordable for everyone”, Marjan van Loon, director of Shell Nederland, said to NOS.

According to Shell, that one extra cent per liter is enough to drive in a “CO2 neutral” way. The voluntary contribution from customers will be invested in CO2 compensation projects, such as planting trees in Peru and Indonesia. The company invests abroad in such projects because the Netherlands does not yet have a certified CO2 compensation system, Shell said. read more

Corrupt Sultan of Brunei introduces tough Islamic penal code

When Brunei put harsh new laws in place this week that made adultery and gay sex punishable by stoning, it focused international attention on the country’s sovereign, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, 72, whose vast wealth and family spending have landed his name in the tabloids for decades.

The sultan, as the main enforcer of religion in the Southeast Asian country, has in recent decades advocated a hard-line vision of Islam that is at odds with the royal family’s opulent lifestyle. Here is a look at his powers, his background and the international condemnation of Brunei’s new laws. read more

Shell, Eni In Italian Court Over OPL 245 Award Process

Ayoade told the court: “The award process for OPL245 to Shell and ENI did not follow the procedure established in the Petroleum Act, Petroleum (Drilling and Production) Regulation and DPR Guidance Notes for Prospective Bidders. Failure to follow the relevant laws, policies and regulations is fatal to the legality of the OPL 245 award (Zebra Energy Ltd V FGN (2002)). It is my considered view that the licence award on the basis of a FGN Resolution Agreement is anomalous and unprecedented in the Nigerian Oil and Gas Sector.”

BY SAHARAREPORTERS, NEW YORK: APR 05, 2019

The Federal Government appears to have made progress in the prosecution of the flaws associated with the controversial award of OPL 245 to oil giants, Shell and Eni.

On Wednesday, a consultant hired by Italian prosecutors, Dr Dayo Ayoade, said in Italy that the contract award of OPL 245 to Shell and ENI, did not follow Nigerian legal provisions. He spoke in Milan, where he made lead presentations to prosecutors.

Ayoade, of the Department of Law, University of Lagos, was hired by Milan prosecutors to ascertain whether the two oil giants met corporate and legal obligations. The celebrated case is being contested by high-profile legal experts from Nigeria and across the world, including a retired Nigerian Supreme Court Judge, Justice Emmanuel Ayoola JSC (Rtd), who stood in for Shell; a Queens Counsel (QC), Prof. Frank Odita, representing ENI, with Mrs. Felicia Femi Olusegun. read more

Shell sued in Dutch court over Climate Change

April 5, 2019

Environmental activists take Shell to court on Friday to try to stop the Anglo-Dutch oil giant drilling for gas and oil, and to ensure it meets climate change targets.

Some 17,000 people and six organisations have signed up to Milieudefensie’s call for co-defendants in the case, which the green group hopes will lead to a judge ‘forcing Shell to stop being a major cause of climate change.’

The 2015 Paris agreement on climate change included a commitment to leave oil, gas and coal in the grounds as much as possible, the lobby group says. ‘These three fuels are major causes of global warning and this is why we have to stop our dependence on them as soon as possible. ‘ read more
