LARGEST CASE IN INDUSTRY’S HISTORY Nigeria Eni/Shell corruption case: Future of Eni’s CEO at stake

LARGEST CASE IN INDUSTRY’S HISTORY

Nigeria Eni/Shell corruption case: Future of Eni’s CEO at stake

By Christophe Le Bec
Posted on Thursday, 24 September 2020 18:22

The highly publicised corruption trial which alleges that oil majors Eni and Shell took part in an unlawful acquisition – that of the OPL 245 oil licence in Nigeria – entered its final phase on Monday, 21 September in Milan, with the defence presenting its case.

Key business and political figures were set to go before the Italian court in relation to a Nigerian business deal dating back to the early 2000s. The corruption case is one of the largest in the oil industry’s history. read more

Shell Energy Beware

The above extracts are from Trustpilot, Facebook Group: Shell Energy (formerly First Utility) – the worst customer service ever?? and First Utility Reviews

The Shell Energy gripe website is being launched in response to consumer horror stories involving debt collectors and bailiffs, with complaints posted online by outraged Shell Energy customers like the damning examples quoted in the above header.

By John Donovan

Shell and its shareholders will not welcome the news that I am launching another website later this month focussed on Shell. This time the target is Shell Energy, a global brand of rapidly growing importance and value to the parent company – Royal Dutch Shell Plc – in its quest to move away from an increasingly toxic fossil fuel-based business. Part of the gathering flight of ethical investors deserting Big Oil, in Shell’s case a transition into becoming a global energy and broadband company, instead of a dying oil giant. read more

Cartech-one reviews

Warning about cartech-one.co.uk

Don’t be misled by the home page for car-tech-one.co.uk into believing you are dealing with a UK company.

The text is all in English, the prices are all in UK pounds and the website address and trading name give the impression that it is a UK business. Unfortunately that is not the case.

The business is owned and operated by a German company with belligerent arrogant customer service staff. Patrick Kissler in particular seems to be a graduate of the Basil Fawlty charm school. His response to the legitimate complaint was to issue a threat about making the relevant email correspondence public.

The company despatched an order from Germany after it was cancelled when the customer realised that the order was coming from Germany and would take up to 8 days. Cartech-one.co.uk accepted the cancellation and promised to return the funds already paid. As can be seen in an extract from an email sent to the German company, matters only got worse. Amazon delivered the same product overnight.

I sent an email addressed in BLOCK CAPS to the Managing Director of car tech-one.co.uk. I got a threatening response from the person named in the complaint, Mr Patrick Kissler.

Shell Prelude FLNG project relegated to backburner

By John Donovan

A Reuters article published today reports that a collapse in the benchmark price of gas has hit Shell’s “long-delayed $12.6 billion Prelude project off northwest Australia”.  Citing Shell Prelude, it says that FLNG projects are being relegated to the backburner.

Shell executive VP Steve Hill is quoted as admitting: “There was maybe an expectation when Prelude was being conceived that this was the future and every LNG project would look like that. I think that got kind of superseded by the U.S. being the primary source of new LNG supply ..” read more

Shell cost-cutting plan will undermine the welfare of its pensioners

By John Donovan

Today we publish below a notification letter dated 8 December 2016 sent by a Shell HR VP to all Shell UK pensioners. 

Basically, Shell is intending to scrap the network of 45 Pensioner Liaison Representatives established over 40 years ago, who currently represent 28,000 Shell UK pensioners. Although Shell still rakes in billions of dollars in annual profits, the reason given is cost-cutting arising from the BG takeover and the low price of oil. 

The letter, pdf copy attached, is signed by a Shell HR VP Jonathan Kohn who openly admits that what is proposed is a “significant change”.  read more

John Donovan, Shell’s Nightmare: Secret Litigation Settlements

Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 16.11.07

By John Donovan

I published an article earlier today listing a number of settlements that Shell has made in various litigation claims ranging from fraud to complicity in murder. 

Shell’s settlement of my first three High Court claims against the company were all shrouded in secrecy. 

See: High Court papers unveil ‘secret’ Shell writ losses.”

John Donovan, Shell’s nightmare: MY EPIC FEUD WITH THE UNSCRUPULOUS OIL GIANT ROYAL DUTCH SHELL

About: John Donovan, Shell’s nightmare

His ebook tells the truly extraordinary story of a series of battles in an epic feud between him and the oil giant Royal Dutch Shell. It all stemmed from the repeated theft of intellectual property by Shell.

Donovan was chairman of a sales promotion agency, Don Marketing, that devised spectacularly successful forecourt promotions for Shell on an international basis. Many involved budgets of several million dollars. A mutually beneficial relationship lasted for over a decade.

This was followed by two decades of acrimony involving six High Court actions, a County Court case and proceedings via the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO). read more

Siemens, Mossack Fonseca and Shell

Screen Shot 2016-04-11 at 13.12.00

By John Donovan

It’s interesting to note that there seem to be parallels between Siemens (mired in the Panama Papers scandal) and Shell.

A few years ago, Siemens was prosecuted for bribery, and some of their senior employees were jailed. It was suspected that some of the funds provided by Siemens for the bribes were kept by the Siemens executives involved, but lack of evidence prevented the executives involved from being prosecuted. 

The amounts involved in the Siemens cases were tiny in comparison with Shell’s OPL 245 payments, but were funnelled through Mossack Fonseca.  read more

On 7 November, we published the first news of the firing of Lorraine Mitchelmore, the President and Country Chair of Shell Canada.

The information, which came from a Shell insider source, was posted on our Shell Blog under the alias of “Manny”

The departure of Lorraine Mitchelmore has been confirmed today by the mainstream media, 10 days later.

She claims that she was not sacked, but stepped down to spend more time with her children.  read more

SHELL und DEUTSCHLAND (SHELL AND GERMANY)

Screen Shot 2015-08-17 at 08.44.37
Screen Shot 2015-08-17 at 08.38.13English translation below of the text shown on the centre section of the above German road map published by Shell in Nazi Germany after Hitler came to power in January 1933. Shell boasted about its contribution to the German economy stretching back to 1924. We assume the map provided directions to the Polish border.

In the years approaching WW2, the ardent Nazi, Sir Henri Deterding, was in control at Shell along with likeminded Group Managing Directors (two of whom subsequently became Director Generals of Shell), all willing to get into bed with the Nazis. read more

Simon Henry sells £423,400 ($660,736.58) worth of stock in Royal Dutch Shell Plc

Chief Financial Officer Simon Henry sold 20,000 shares of Royal Dutch Shell Plc stock in a transaction dated Tuesday, May 5th.

The stock was sold at an average price of GBX 2,117 ($33.04), for a total transaction of £423,400 ($660,736.58).

Simon knows more than we do about Shell’s ill-fated 2015 Arctic Drilling campaign.  

The cost thus far is north of $6 billion, without a thimble full of oil to show for it. 

With further mishaps, growing global opposition and time fast running out for the 2015 drilling season, he will probably soon flog some more shares, before ordinary investors start taking flight.

AramcoShell.com: one of the most valuable domain names in the world?

Aramco Shell .com

By John Donovan

I own and operate many Shell related domain names including, for example, RoyalDutchShellPlc.com and RoyalDutchShellGroup.com, both of which Shell International unsuccessfully attempted to seize 10 years ago in proceedings via The World Intellectual Property Organisation.

Depending on reaction to this article, I may put one of my domain names – aramcoshell.com up for sale, probably by auction.

It is potentially one of the most valuable domain names in the world.

Here is my logic for such an assertion:  read more

Shell, climate change and a question of reality

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 09.56.22By John Donovan

Royal Dutch Shell CEO Ben van Beurden is said to have lambasted fossil fuel critics at the Shell AGM yesterday, accusing them of ignoring reality.

Two days earlier, Terry Macalister of The Guardian, who has always been scrupulously fair in his comments and reporting in relation to Shell, seemed to suggest that it is Mr Van Beurden who is having a problem in relation to the reality of climate change.
