SHELL BLOG COMMENTS ON PUBLICATION OF BRENT BRAVO JAW-DROPPING AUDIT NOTES MADE IN 1999 BEFORE THE FATALITIES OCCURRED

FROM RETIRED OIM (addressed to Bill – Bill Campbell)

Bill, now the full horror of your findings during the Expro audit have been made available via Johns’ web site I wonder what kind of reaction, if any, will be generated. In retrospect and with hindsight, publishing earlier might have sealed Brinded’s demise sooner and he would never have risen to an apparent level of “the untouchable”.

The Italians hopefully will ensure he will be disgraced never to be any where near a responsible position again. read more

The Financial Times has this weekend pointed put “the company’s leadership is changing at a time when its financial performance has been under scrutiny from investors” and also drew attention to the recent profit warning, following a succession of dismal quarterly results.  read more

Middle East can expect ‘dash for gas’, Shell exec tells Oman conference

Muscat, Oman (Platts)–12Dec2011/609 am EST/1109 GMT

Shell anticipates a dash for gas in the Middle East to cope with increasing energy demand and expectations that some 60 million people are due to enter its jobs market over the next ten years.

The forecast came from Mark Carne, Shell’s Executive Vice President for the Middle East and North Africa, addressing the Gas Arabia conference in Muscat Monday.

He was backed in this view by BP’s Chief Economist Christof Ruehl, who said that on a global basis, other fuels will continue to grow over the next 20 years, but gas will grow much faster than any other. He noted that BP’s current Energy Outlook to 2030 anticipates an average annual growth for natural gas consumption of 2.1%. read more

Warning about Mark Carne of Royal Dutch Shell Plc

Subject: Brent Bravo: watch Mark Carne

Dear John,

This email contains information about Mark Carne (right), who is currently employed by Shell as Regional Vice President for Middle East and North Africa. He reports directly to Malcolm Brinded. This email account has been set up to safeguard my anonymity, as Mr. Carne is known to not handle criticism very well.

Over the years you have reported about Brent Bravo http://royaldutchshellplc.com/tag/brent-bravo/, and consistently linked the matter with Malcolm Brinded. Maybe the time is right to take a closer look at Mr. Carne, who was the manager for Brent at the time. Mr. Carne’s style is to manage-by-viewgraph and to ignore or suppress unwanted information from the work floor. He instigated bonuses that led to the “Touch F*** All” culture on Brent; he remained clueless about their negative impact while others had already become concerned. Several years ago, Mr. Carne didn’t get a job in Shell UK that he was hoping for, and he left to take a role in BG. It didn’t take BG long to release him. read more
