For decades Shell has tried to suppress online criticism

1995

Shell first took issue with my Shell-focused Internet activity in March 1995. Shell’s rabid false allegations about my late father and me resulted in a libel action and other litigation (IP theft) all subsequently settled in our favour by Shell.

2000

In November 2000, DJ Freeman, solicitors acting for Shell, sent a threatening letter to a server hosting company for www.nuclear-crimes.com AKA Shell’s Nuclear Crimes. DJ Freeman boasted in their letter that the website in question had already been removed from the Internet by a previous hosting company, Easyspace after DJ Freeman sent a threatening letter on behalf of Shell. read more

Shell’s failed blundering attempt to kill my royaldutchshell.website

Shell’s failed blundering attempt to kill my royaldutchshell.website

By John Donovan (last updated 30 July 2021)

Last week, a CYBERSECURITY INTELLIGENCE outfit acting for Shell issued a 5-day ultimatum on behalf of Shell to the company hosting my royaldutchshell.website.

I would not have had a clue about the ultimatum letter if the hosting company had not tipped me off about what was going on behind my back at Shell’s direction.

For 26 years, I have used the Internet as a medium to criticise and expose Shell’s unscrupulous dishonest activities, including, for example, the Shell securities fraud that ruined Shell’s reputation. read more

Shell To Appeal Landmark Court Ruling

Shell To Appeal Landmark Court Ruling

By City A.M – Jul 21, 2021, 11:30 AM CDT

Shell has today confirmed that it will appeal against a landmark court ruling requiring the oil giant to cut emissions faster than it had planned to.

The Anglo-Dutch firm said that it had been unfairly singled out by the ruling, which it said was not an “effective” way of tackling climate change.

In May, a court in the Hague ordered the firm to slash greenhouse emissions by 45 percent from 2019 levels by 2030. read more

Shell abandons push for oil spill case to be heard in Nigeria

Shell abandons push for oil spill case to be heard in Nigeria

Bloomberg 12/07/2021: Shell has abandoned its final attempt to argue that a major lawsuit brought by thousands of Nigerians over an oil spill in the West African country should be heard in Nigeria rather than the UK.

Shell’s legal team declined to return to England’s High Court with arguments that the five-year-old case would be better heard in Nigeria, according to the parties in the case, conceding that the Nigerian subsidiary will now be joined to claims made in England against the parent company.

The UK Supreme Court said in a landmark ruling in February that Shell’s parent company could be sued in English courts for the actions of its Nigerian subsidiary. The court, however, left the door open for Shell to argue that it was more appropriate to leave any action against the local unit to Nigerian courts. By including the subsidiary in the UK proceedings, more documents about Shell’s work in Nigeria are likely to be made public. read more

Dividend delight for Royal Dutch Shell shareholders as economic recovery enables oil giant to raise payouts

  • Shell expects to withdraw its ‘milestone’ target to cut net debts to below $65bn

  • Investors will get payouts that are between 20-30% of cash flow from operations

Royal Dutch Shell has announced that investors will receive higher payouts following a recovery in oil and gas prices and a reduction in its debt pile.

It said that thanks to an ‘improved macro-economic outlook’ and ‘strong operational and financial delivery,’ shareholders would be awarded returns that were between 20 and 30 per cent of cash flow from operations. read more

Rapid oil cuts is ‘valley of death’ for Shell, says chief Ben van Beurden

Rapid oil cuts is ‘valley of death’ for Shell, says chief Ben van Beurden

Boss says he has to balance wind-down of fossil fuels with cashflow from new businesses

Cutting Royal Dutch Shell’s oil and gas production too quickly before its new green businesses are generating cash would lead the company into a “valley of death”, its chief executive has said.

Speaking in the aftermath of a Dutch court ruling forcing the oil major to cut its emissions faster than planned, Ben van Beurden said he was prepared to take “more risk than our investors traditionally would like to see us take” to accelerate the growth of its clean energy operations. read more

Shell urged to drop appeal over landmark climate ruling

By : 2 MIN READ: JUNE 24, 2021

LONDON (Reuters) – A Dutch activist group that won a legal battle against Royal Dutch Shell over its climate strategy has urged the company to ditch its appeal and hold joint talks on how to reduce its emissions, according to a letter seen by Reuters.

Shell CEO Ben van Beurden said the company planned to appeal the ruling but that the Anglo-Dutch company would also accelerate its energy-transition strategy and deepen emission cuts.

The court ruling came amid mounting pressure from investors and activist groups on the world top oil companies including Exxon Mobil to tackle their emissions. read more

Behind Shell’s strategy to get into green energy.

Behind Shell’s strategy to get into green energy.

June 21, 2021, 8:07 a.m. ET

Ben van Beurden, the chief executive of Royal Dutch Shell, has been talking about the need to cut emissions since 2017. In the view of some, though, Shell has dragged its feet.

The company’s clean energy investments since 2016 add up to $3.2 billion, Stanley Reed reports for The New York Times, while it has spent about $84 billion on oil and gas exploration and development, according to estimates by Bernstein, a research firm.

“You cannot claim to be in transition when you only invest” such a small percentage of capital in new businesses, said Mark van Baal, founder of Follow This, a Dutch investor activist group. read more

Big Oil Looks To Cut Production Following Activist Backlash

By Alex Kimani – Jun 19, 2021, 6:00 PM CDT

Two weeks ago, Big Oil suffered a series of boardroom and courtroom defeats in the hands of hardline climate activists.

…a Dutch court ordered Royal Dutch Shell to cut its greenhouse gas emissions harder and faster than it had previously planned. Never mind the fact that Shell already had pledged to cut GHG emissions by 20% by 2030 and to net-zero by 2050. The court in The Hague determined that wasn’t good enough and has demanded a 45% cut by 2030 compared to 2019 levels. read more

Ben van Beurden pledges to ‘rise to challenge’ after court ordered oil firm to cut global carbon emissions by 45%

Joanna Partridge: Wed 9 Jun 2021 18.21 BST

Royal Dutch Shell has vowed to accelerate its strategy towards becoming a net zero emissions business, two weeks after a Dutch court ruling ordered the company to cut its global carbon emissions by 45% by the end of 2030 compared with 2019 levels.

Shell’s chief executive, Ben van Beurden, promised to “rise to the challenge” in helping to create a low-carbon energy system, but came out fighting for the Anglo-Dutch oil company he runs, insisting it has been leading the industry in taking responsibility for its carbon emissions. read more

Shell says a court ruling on greenhouse gases will speed up its plans to cut emissions.

THE NEW YORK TIMES

Shell says a court ruling on greenhouse gases will speed up its plans to cut emissions.

: June 9, 2021

Royal Dutch Shell will respond to a recent defeat in a Dutch court by accelerating its efforts to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions, the company’s leader said Wednesday.

Ben van Beurden, the chief executive of Shell, said that he was “disappointed” by the ruling requiring the oil company, Europe’s largest, to move faster in slashing greenhouse gases, but added that the company was planning to do just that.

“For Shell, this ruling does not mean a change but rather an acceleration of our strategy,” Mr. van Beurden said in an article published on LinkedIn. “We will seek ways to reduce emissions even further in a way that remains purposeful and profitable,” he added. read more

Shell promises to accelerate shift to low carbon

The oil giant Shell will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions more quickly than planned following a legal ruling in the Netherlands, its chief executive has promised in a blog post.

The firm would take “some bold but measured steps,” Ben van Beurden wrote.

Environmentalists won a court case in May, arguing Shell was failing to reduce emissions quickly enough.

Mr van Beurden said Shell would appeal against the ruling, but meanwhile he would look at hastening the transition. read more

Shell to deepen emission cuts following court ruling, CEO says

LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell will seek ways to accelerate its energy transition strategy and deepen carbon emission cuts following a landmark Dutch court ruling last month, CEO Ben van Beurden said on Wednesday, a move that will likely lead to a dramatic shrinking of its oil and gas business.

Shell plans to appeal the May 26 court ruling that ordered it to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by 2030 from 2019 levels, significantly faster than its current plans. read more
