Shell Accused of Unlawful Drilling in New Zealand

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29MOSCOW, October 9 (RIA Novosti) – Oil and gas giant Shell and its New Zealand partner firm Todd Energy were accused of unlawful offshore drilling in New Zealand, but managed to evade court prosecution and only received a warning letter, New Zealand News UK reports.
