The oil multinational has filed a legal complaint in a federal court in Alaska, as it looks to remove the six Greenpeace activists from its vessel carrying the Polar Pioneer oil rig.

In an official statement yesterday, Shell said it has had talks with groups that are against the company’s planned drilling activities in Arctic this summer. While the company respects their views, the recent move by protesters has endangered their lives as well as lives of the crew members. The risky decision to climb a moving vessel is also illegal, claims Shell. read more

Shell Oil Drilling Serious Threat to Russian Polar Bear Reserve: Greenpeace

Screen Shot 2015-04-01 at 14.25.22

The oil drilling operation of Shell in the Chukchi Sea can harm the vast population of polar bears and walruses living in the Wrangel Island reserve.

The oil drilling operation of Dutch oil giant Shell in the Chukchi Sea, which is a marginal sea of the Arctic Ocean, is a threat to Russia’s Wrangel Island National Park, Greenpeace said in a report published on Wednesday.

“Shell has received government approval to drill exploratory wells in the Chukchi Sea. Greenpeace found that this drilling threatens not only the nature of the United States, but also Russia, in particular — the famous Arctic Reserve ‘Wrangel Island’,” they said in a statement. read more

Will Shell try to crush Greenpeace again?

By John Donovan

James Delingpole of Breitbart fame,”the world’s best political blogger”, says in an outspoken article about the Greenpeace Lego victory over Shell, that the oil giant should “crush” Greenpeace, who he describes as bastards.

Obviously not a man to mince his words. 

It is an article well worth reading. He is a brilliant writer.

SHELL OIL, LEGO, GREENPEACE AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT’S WAR ON CAPITALISM

Some extracts

For too long, big businesses like Shell have sought to escape the attentions of leftist attack dogs like Greenpeace (much as shopkeepers in Little Italy used to pay protection money to the Mob) by paying lip service to all the green orthodoxies and sponsoring worthy green causes. But it just doesn’t work because however much greenwashing it attempts, Shell will always be an oil company. And Greenpeace will always hate it – and try to destroy it – because Greenpeace hates oil companies. So the first step towards escaping this cycle of humiliation is to recognise who your enemy is and, instead of appeasing him, to face up to him and crush him. Trust me, Shell. It’s the only language these bastards understand. read more

Lego surrender in Greenpeace anti-Shell Arctic drilling campaign 

Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 10.04.04

By John Donovan

The Greenpeace campaign demanding that Lego should end its 50 year partnership with Shell has resulted in a surrender by Lego.

According to a Guardian article published today, the toymaker will not renew the current multimillion pounds deal for Shell branded Lego to be sold at Shell petrol stations in 26 countries. 

Lego had previously resisted the relentless Greenpeace campaign protesting about Shell’s plans to drill in Arctic waters.

The campaign targeting the world’s biggest toy maker, included a popular YouTube video – “Everything is not awesome” – which has attracted nearly 6m views.  read more

Behind the scenes at Greenpeace’s Lego and Shell protest viral video

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29From an article published by the Guardian newspaper on 22 July 2014

It had more than 4.5m views in its first week…

The film was designed to increase the pressure on Lego to cut its ties with Shell. Arguably it is the way the film subverts and disrupts expectations that explains why more than 4.5 million people have watched it since it was released earlier this month.

Greenpeace’s Lego Video Aims To End Shell Partnership

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Extracts from an article by Katherine Boehrer published by The Huffington Post on 7 July 2014

Greenpeace’s most recent video targets popular toy brand Lego for its partnership with Shell. Though it begins innocently enough, panning over a Lego winter wonderland full of polar bears, wolves and icebergs, the video takes a sinister twist when a Lego version of a Shell drilling rig begins to flood the scene with oil.

Richard Beer, the Creative Director behind the film, said that although they love Lego, they hate to see the company “being used by Shell.” The final frames of the video highlight this message, saying, “Shell is polluting our kids’ imaginations. Tell Lego to end its partnership with Shell.” read more

Greenpeace holds protest at Belgian GP

Screen Shot 2013-08-25 at 16.08.10Greenpeace activists attempted to disrupt the build-up to the Belgian Grand Prix after unfolding a large banner on the main start-finish grandstand.

After two para-gliders flew over the circuit trailing a banner protesting against race sponsor Shell’s Arctic drilling plans, four activists from Greenpeace Belgium scaled the roof of the main grandstand in the hour before the start.

As local police struggled to find a way of stopping the protest, the protestors unfolded a 20-metre long banner that read: “Arctic oil? Shell no!”

In a statement issued following the protest, Greenpeace international executive director Kumi Naidoo said: “I was a fan of Grand Prix racing when I was growing up, but I am not a fan of what Shell is doing in the Arctic. read more

OSLO | Wed Apr 24, 2013 4:20am EDT

(Reuters) – Environmental group Greenpeace launched a website on Wednesday seeking to attract whistleblowers from within oil companies to reveal risks with drilling for oil and gas in the Arctic.

Greenpeace wants governments to ban oil and gas firms from the fragile Arctic environment.

It urged employees of oil firms and sub-contractors to submit information to the new website (www.arctictruth.org) if they knew about serious safety issues or risks that were in the public interest. read more

Shell sues Greenpeace to stop Artic protests

COMMENT BY A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR

SHELL’S MADNESS…

Has anyone thought about the implications of a 500m exclusion zone around Shell property in Holland?
 
This would prevent Greenpeace members from entering a large proportion of the Hague, Rotterdam and Amsterdam, from using motorways and most major roads, or from going near any of the thousands of Shell locations which cover the country, such as refineries,  filling stations, oil and gas wells and production facilities.
 
Is Shell planning to publish a map showing the thousands of no-go areas implied?  The widely used Shell road map of Holland might provide a good starting point of the area “off limits” to Greenpeace members! read more

Digital assault on Shell

By John Donovan

The Financial Times has published an article under the headline “How Shell was hijacked in ad hoax.

Extracts

It is part of a web campaign jointly orchestrated by environmental group Greenpeace, activist organisation Yes Lab and members of the Occupy Wall Street movement to rally against Shell’s Arctic drilling programme.

The digital assault is a new type of internet campaigning. Rather than staging a protest, activist groups hijack brands and harness social media to derail a company’s image. “We’re only beginning to understand how much social media can change our society,” says James Turner of Greenpeace USA. read more

The Shell Oil Hoax: Is Your Brand Next?

Beware: Tools to Create a Faux Ad Campaign Are Cheap and Easy to Use

(Credit: Daniel Hixon via Shutterstock/Salon)

By: Jonathan Salem Baskin Published: June 18, 2012

The viral video clip looked as if it had been shot at a press conference announcing Shell’s plans for new Arctic drilling. So it was particularly ironic when a soda-pop dispenser shaped like an oil rig malfunctioned and sprayed revelers with cola (they used tiny polar bear dolls to sop it up). When the video got hundreds of thousands of views and was reported in mainstream media, Shell threatened legal action. If people were interested in the real story, they could visit the company’s site, ArcticReady.org, which detailed the opportunities for profit created by global warming. read more

Ice could delays Shell’s work in Alaska

Published: June 15, 2012 at 6:35 AM

WASHINGTON, June 15 (UPI) — Drilling operations in the arctic waters off the coast of Alaska might be scaled back if there is late ice cover in the region this summer, Shell said.

Shell aims to launch a drilling campaign in the coming months in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas off the Alaskan coast.

Shell President Marvin Odum told the Platts news service the program might get scaled back from five exploratory wells to three if there is late ice cover in the region.

“It’s a little ironic, isn’t it, that this is the year it looks like we’ll finally move forward with the drilling process and what we find through our analysis is there’s more ice in the Arctic this year than there has been in the last decade,” he said. read more

Greenpeace vs. Shell: Duelling vessels head for Arctic from Seattle

By

Seattle’s Elliott Bay is the epicenter of a global energy fight.

The Shell Oil Company has two rigs docked here, the Kulluk and the Noble Discoverer. Also in Elliott Bay is the Greenpeace vessel, Esperanza.

As soon as the ice clears, Shell’s rigs will head out for the Arctic. They’ll be the first to conduct exploratory drilling there in more than two decades. Greenpeace plans to shadow them, using submarines.

“… to bring back some of the baseline science and some of the information demonstrating what’s out there in this pristine environment that really has never been explored by anyone before and yet, a place where Shell wants to begin drilling,” says Jackie Dragon, the lead campaigner for Greenpeace’s polar expedition. read more

Shell injunction forces Greenpeace to get creative

With a judge ordering its boats to stay away from the oil firm’s Arctic rigs, the anti-drilling organization turns to social media and other means of getting its message out.

By Kim Murphy, Los Angeles Times: June 10, 2012 SEATTLE — One day last week, guests from various engineering and shipping companies around Seattle were invited to a reception at the Space Needle, supposedly hosted by Royal Dutch Shell to celebrate the upcoming debut of offshore oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean.

But most of the guests, it turned out, were actors and activists merely posing as drilling enthusiasts.

They looked on in mock horror as a giant ice sculpture emblazoned with Shell’s corporate logo began spraying a stream of Diet Coke on an elderly woman who was the supposed guest of honor. The woman, who gained fame last year when she was pepper-sprayed by police at an Occupy Seattle protest, shrieked as the emcees grabbed stuffed polar bears to help mop up the spill.

A video of the ensuing chaos quickly gained half a million views on YouTube. read more

Interesting information about Shell

John

I hope you and your readers found the Shell Contractor profile to be of interest.

Here is a case were a Federal Judge engaged in misconduct in a ruling favoring Shell Oil.
Shell Oil Co. v. United States | Justia U.S. Federal Circuit Court of …

During World War II, the U.S. contracted with oil companies for the production of aviation fuel, which resulted in production of hazardous waste. The waste was dumped at the California McColl site. Several decades later, the oil companies were held liable for cleanup costs under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. 9601, and sought reimbursement from the government based on the contracts. The district court entered summary judgment on liability, finding that the contracts contained open ended indemnification agreements and encompassed costs for CERLCA cleanup, and awarded $87,344,345.70. The trial judge subsequently discovered that his wife had inherited 97.59 shares of stock in a parent to two of the oil companies. The judge ultimately vacated his summary judgment rulings; severed two companies from the suit and directed the clerk to reassign their claims to a different judge; reinstated his prior decisions with respect to two remaining companies; and entered judgment against the government ($68,849,505). The Federal Circuit vacated and remanded for reassignment to another judge. The judge was required to recuse himself under 28 U.S.C. 455(b)(4) and the error was not harmless. read more

Greenpeace to monitor Shell Arctic drilling with submarines

By Steve Hargreaves @CNNMoney June 8, 2012: 6:47 AM ET

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Greenpeace plans on deploying two submarines to keep tabs on Royal Dutch Shell when the oil company starts drilling in the Arctic, which could begin as soon as next month.

The subs, a two-person and a one-person craft, are currently on board the Greenpeace ship Esperanza, docked in Seattle.

The Esperanza plans on tailing Shell’s drilling fleet, also docked in Seattle, when the fleet leaves for Arctic waters. Shell is waiting for the last batch of federal permits, expected any day, before deploying its ships. read more
