Collusion between Shell and HSE in Brent Bravo cover-up

One of the examples of collusion between Shell and HSE was that HSE were aware that the Press Releases by Shell were false.  From the feedback from the CPS investigation they confirmed that the CEO of the HSE was aware that the statements made by Shell in the Press Releases in 2006 were totally false and misleading.

Bill Campbell quoted in Final Report on BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

Under the heading of “Learning from Accidents:”, page 231 of the Final Report published by the U.S. National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling

Extract from Chapter 8, page 233

Shell’s safety response. Shell, a long-time leader in Gulf of Mexico operations (before BP surpassed it, as described in Chapter 2), has had its own safety problems. Two men died in a gas leak on the company’s Brent Bravo platform in 2003; former Shell senior manager Bill Campbell, who had earlier led a safety review, said after the accident that his 1999 warnings had been ignored by the company.99 Shell denied that it operated at high levels of risk.100

Shell subsequently tightened and simplified its safety rules.101 Shell also has promoted the use of the “safety case” worldwide (a risk-management approach to regulation described in Chapter 3).102 It has adopted the safety-case approach even in the United States, where it is not required to do so, and has promoted it for the industry more broadly.103 Marvin Odum, president of Shell Oil Company and director of Shell’s Upstream Americas business, told the Commission’s November 9 hearing that “the safety case in deepwater drilling shows how we identify and assess the hazards on a rig; how we establish the barriers to prevent and control those hazards; how we assign the critical activities needed to maintain the integrity of these barriers.”104 read more

Deepwater Horizon Regulatory Failures

By W M Campbell – 12th January 2011 (Retired HSE Group Auditor, Shell International)

Regulatory Failures

As the queue begins to form of those who would sue BP and others for the failures that caused Deepwater Horizon, it appears, from the early release of the findings of the Presidential Commission published last week, that it was the negligence of multiple parties that caused the multiple failures.  Negligence also extends to the present and previous US Government administrations, their agencies and members of Congress.  To put the Commission Report in context we need to go back in time to 1982, and take in some history. read more

Oil companies warned on North Sea accidents

MESSAGE FROM BILL CAMPBELL, RETIRED GROUP HSE AUDITOR, SHELL INTERNATIONAL

John

You may be interested in this, things are not getting better offshore and the figs for 2009/10 exclude the helicopter incident.

What should concerns offshore workers is that for example the operators or installations who are having the increase in gas releases are not highlighted in the HSE report.  It appears a fundamental weakness that you can find out how your local hospital is performing but not how the installation your friends or family are employed on is performing.  Despite pressure to provide specific data the HSE still produces general data masking from public scrutiny the worst offenders.

Expert educates Shell CEO Voser on oil rig blowouts

Retired Shell International Health and Safety Group Auditor, Bill Campbell responds to our article…Voser claims Shell has nothing to learn from the BP disaster: Is this really true?

SHELL HAS NOTHING TO LEARN!

When the US oil industry put forward the case to the US president for drilling in deepwater of Louisiana and Florida they are quoted as saying blowouts are rare events.  They were confident they could drill in deepwater safely, they had nothing to learn.

But their argument was entirely flawed because the risks of drilling are the product of the probability of the blowout and the often catastrophic consequences of the blowout.

So if the event is credible, something that can and does happen on a Drilling rig, the Risk may be very high if the consequences are catastrophic and historical data shows that such events often were.

Deepwater Horizon – an independent assessment

My compliments to Panorama and your programme “How on earth did this happen”

Please see the attached analysis sent to the US investigators and Professor Robert Bea who according to CBS News 60 minutes has a role in collating survivors testimony and the Chemical Safety and Investigation Board (CSB) tasked I understand to investigate the disaster.

I have no connections whatsoever with BP, your people in Aberdeen are aware of who I am and I took part in 2006 in the BBC Frontline Scotland Programme the Human Price of Oil.  I have from time to time supplied Channel 4 with technical input on questions re offshore safety also. read more

Shell Arctic Drilling Plans: Email to Kim Murphy at LA Times

To our astonishment we discovered that a “Touch F*** All” policy was in place. Worse still, safety records were routinely falsified and repairs bodged.

Subject: What if an oil spill happened at an Arctic well?

Hello Kim

What your article does not mention is Shell’s notorious “Touch F*** All” safety culture in the North Sea oil rigs, which led to an explosion and deaths on the Brent Bravo platform.

Basically, production and profits were given a higher priority than the safety of offshore employees.

The truth was exposed by Bill Campbell, the HSE Group Auditor of Shell International.  This was his self-explanatory letter to UK Members of Parliament which led to a criminal investigation by Scottish Police and legal authorities currently underway. It would be equally relevant to substitute the Arctic Ocean for the North Sea. read more

By Bill Campbell (above), retired HSE Group Auditor, Shell International

On the subject of the integrity of Royal Dutch Shell Chairman, Jorma Ollila, raised by former Shell executive, Paddy Briggs, the information below was copied to Nokia yesterday, it should be self explanatory, if Nokia do not act they could find themselves guilty by association:

The attached information explains why Royal Dutch Shell along with the UK Oil Industry Health and Safety Regulator the HSE are currently being investigated by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in Scotland. read more

Royal Dutch Shell Fat Cat Malcolm Brinded: Big Brain but no scruples

Shell Foundation Chairman Malcolm Brinded

By Alfred and John Donovan

On Monday we will publish Shell internal documents and correspondence with Malcolm Brinded providing evidence of how this brainy man,  who remains at number 2 in the Shell hierarchy, sanctioned corrupt practices, deceit, theft and other illegal action involving a conspiracy of Shell managers. This dishonest activity was also condoned by Richard Wiseman, the former Shell Legal Director now laughingly given the job of Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer at Royal Dutch Shell Plc. The Shell UK legal team Wiseman controlled played a key role in a corrupted Shell tender process. read more

PUBLIC STATEMENT BY BILL CAMPBELL, FORMER SHELL INTERNATIONAL HSE GROUP AUDITOR

Update on Shell employee safety issues from Bill Campbell, former Shell HSE Group Auditor, Shell International

Upstream Magazine reported and made Society aware on 14th March technical problems with lifeboats on Brent Bravo and Tern. Although the HSE now confirm that lifeboats had now been repaired it was neglect of maintenance and failure to invest in replacement lifeboats which led to the problems arising. All this in a Company earning net profits of circa $3 million per hour and which in the last day or two announced record quarterly profits. This is a Company that constantly replays in response to any criticism that Safety is its Number 1 priority and it would never compromise safety.
