Nigeria: Oil Spill in Nigeria – Activists Prank Shell, Hijack “Science Slam” in Berlin #Slamshell

Some young environmental activists, pretending to be scientists, on Wednesday pulled off a creative and subversive prank on Anglo-Dutch oil giant, Shell, in Berlin to demand cleaner business practices in Nigeria and elsewhere.

Royal Dutch Shell has closed a key oil pipeline due to oil theft less than a week after it announced it had reopened, underscoring the huge challenges faced by Africa’s largest oil exporter.

Leaks from crude oil theft on the Trans Niger Pipeline in Nigeria have continued, causing a further shut-in of Bonny Light grade oil, Shell said on Friday.

An estimated 100,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil was stolen from pipelines in the Niger Delta in the first quarter of this year, the report by London-based Chatham House said, not including the unknown quantities stolen from export terminals. read more

Nigeria: Slippery Justice for Victims of Oil Spills

Screen Shot 2012-11-27 at 12.12.54The first lawsuit against Shell outside Nigeria took 13 years to be heard in court. It was filed in 1996 by the family of Ken Saro-Wiwa, an author and activist, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, under the Alien Tort Statute, a 1789 law that gives non-U.S. citizens the right to file lawsuits in U.S. courts for violations of international law committed outside the U.S. Although Shell settled out of court in 2009 and agreed to pay the Saro-Wiwa family $15.5 million, it denied the charges that included complicity in human rights abuses and inhumane treatment of the Ogoni people.

In a stunning and dramatic legal ruling that echoed from the serene court chambers in the Netherlands to the heart of rural Niger Delta in Nigeria, the District Court of The Hague dismissed all but one of the lawsuits brought against Royal Dutch Shell, an Anglo-Dutch oil and gas company, by a group of farmers seeking compensation for the environmental damage caused by the company.

The lawsuit was filed in 2008 by four fishermen and farmers accusing Shell of ruining their livelihoods through environmental degradation. The claims centred on oil spills that occurred between 2004 and 2007 at the Ibibio-I oil well in the village of Ikot Ada Udo in Akwa Ibom State. read more

By Kimeng Hilton Ndukong, 3 July 2013

Labour unions are angry at the alleged inhumane treatment of colleagues by three oil companies.

Oil workers in Nigeria yesterday, July 3, 2013, ended a three-day warning strike over alleged poor working conditions for Nigerian staff in Agip, Chevron and Shell oil companies and the non-implementation of a collective bargaining agreement with petroleum tanker drivers, Thisday newspaper reported.

An emergency meeting on Monday, July 1, 2013 between the Federal government, the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and three oil companies, ended in deadlock. NUPENG had earlier on Monday directed all its members at the depots of the concerned oil companies to stop loading petroleum products for three days to protest their treatment by management. The strike was also called to protest the refusal by the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) to implement the signed collective bargaining agreement with petroleum tanker drivers. read more

Nigeria Loses N2.36 Billion Daily As Shell Shuts Down Pipeline

Screen Shot 2013-02-15 at 09.15.38

21 June 2013

NIGERIA’s daily crude oil output declined by 150,000 barrels, as Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited, SPDC, joint venture, Thursday, said it has shut the Trans Niger Pipeline (TNP) following an explosion and fire at a crude theft point on the 28″ section of the facility at Bodo West in Ogoni land.

To this end, the country is currently losing about $14.73 million (N2.357 billion) daily, pending when the pipeline is restored.

A statement by Mr. Tony Okonedo, Corporate Media Relations Manager, said that prior to the incident, SPDC had shut down the 28″ TNP to remove crude theft connections, and has now closed the 24″ TNP as a precautionary response to the fire. This means that the entire TNP system, comprising the 28″ and 24″ pipelines have been shut-in. The 24″ TNP will be reopened when it is safe to do so, while the 28″ TNP will remain shut-in until the fire has been extinguished, and investigation and damage assessment completed.” read more
