Shell’s Nigerian accounts frozen in oil deal dispute

Feb. 19, 2021 9:59 AM ET Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.A) By Carl SurranSA News Editor: 12 Comments

  • A Nigerian court has restricted Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDS.ARDS.B) access to its bank accounts in the country amid a legal dispute over a pipeline deal six years ago.
  • A local oil producer is demanding billions of dollars in damages, claiming Shell misrepresented the condition of the pipeline and undercounted the volume of crude one of its facilities received from the Nigerian company, Bloomberg reports, citing court documents.
  • The allegations involve its $2.4B purchase in 2015 of a 45% interest in an oil block and pipeline from three multinational companies, including Shell.
  • The dispute is just one among several related to Shell’s activities in Nigeria; YTD, a Dutch court has ruled Shell is liable for oil spills in two villages 13 years ago, and the U.K. Supreme Court allowed 40K fishermen and farmers to sue Shell in England.

    Shell turns to forests and the earth to soak up its emissions

    LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell set out plans on Thursday to boost the use of nature-based carbon offsets and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, two climate solutions in their infancy but seen crucial to controlling global warming.

    Both technologies can mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions Shell and its customers cannot eliminate on the path to the group’s 2050 net zero carbon target.

    Shell wants to ramp up its use of nature-based carbon offsets, which include forestation projects, to 120 million tonnes a year by 2030, a big jump given the entire voluntary carbon offset market reached 104 million tonnes in 2019, Ecosystem Marketplace figures show. read more

    Shell unveils green strategy after oil output peak

    Shell unveils green strategy after oil output peak

    Energy giant Royal Dutch Shell declared Thursday that its oil output is locked in decline after peaking in 2019 as it outlined green plans to switch away from fossil fuels.

    Shell said in a statement that it will invest up to $6.0 billion (4.9 billion euros) per year in green energy projects developing and promoting biofuels, electric car charging and renewables.

    More than half the amount could end up being spent on marketing, Shell said.

    In addition, Shell plans to still invest $8 billion annually on new oil and gas exploration. read more

    Shell’s past sins in Nigeria catching up with the oil giant at last

    The recent UK Supreme Court judgement represents a major defeat for Shell after decades of evading legal retribution for its evil plunder and pollution in Nigeria.
