John Vidal: Saturday 7 November 2015

Leaders of Nigeria’s Ogoni people have threatened to disrupt the country’s oil industry if the government does not release a British artwork commemorating the 20th anniversary of the execution of the writer Ken Saro-Wiwa.

The memorial, in the form of a large bus, has been impounded by customs in Lagos for six weeks because it is considered politically inflammatory. A quote from the writer on the side of the bus accuses the oil companies of “practising genocide against the Ogoni”. read more

Screen Shot 2013-04-22 at 08.38.43The US Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit against the Royal Dutch Shell Petroleum Company brought by alleged human rights victims. The ruling, which was handed down last Wednesday, is seen as a serious setback for the Ogoni community in the Niger Delta, who alleged gross human rights abuses during the mid-1990s by the military government in power at the time.

HAGUE TRIES TO HALT SHELL ‘MURDER’ CASE

“The allegations are grave: rape, systematic and widespread torture, extrajudicial killings.”

THE SUNDAY TIMES: HAGUE TRIES TO HALT SHELL ‘MURDER’ CASE

27 May 2012

WILLIAM HAGUE has been accused of hypocrisy after the government intervened on the side of Shell, Britain’s biggest company, over court claims the oil giant was complicit in torture and murder.

The foreign secretary is facing pressure from human rights groups over Britain’s role in a case in America’s highest court being brought by the families of 12 people from Nigeria’s Ogoniland community.

The case puts Britain in conflict with President Barack Obama’s administration, which argues the families should be allowed to sue Shell over claims their relatives were tortured and killed by Nigerian troops in the Niger delta in the 1990s. read more

British Prime Minister David Cameron Acting Dangerously Against Nigeria

MOSOP STATEMENT ISSUED 28 May 2012

British Prime Minister David Cameron Acting Dangerously Against Nigeria

MOSOP President/Spokesman, Dr. Goodluck Diigbo has described British Prime David Cameron’s government amicus brief in the Ogoni case of Kiobel v Shell in the United States of America as an ill-advised and short-sighted colonial tactics.

Diigbo said the prime minister’s action has deeper implications for destabilizing Nigeria. “What it means is that victims of oil operations that have no way of seeking equity and justice should take the law into their hands instead to use the legitimate judicial process available in the United States for requisite redress against violations by multinational oil companies in which Cameron’s government has vested interest,” Diigbo explained. read more

Shell Will Take Cue From Nigeria On UN Report

LONDON (Dow Jones)–Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSB.LN) “hopes to hear soon” from Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan on how recommendations from a United Nations report into long-standing pollution in the Niger Delta should be implemented, Chief Executive Peter Voser told shareholders Tuesday.

The 2011 report, which was funded by Shell, documented fifty years of oil contamination in the Delta region of Ogoniland. It concluded that stakeholders–including Shell and other oil companies, as well as the Nigerian government–should commit at least $1 billion to funding new institutions that oversee the clean-up and rehabilitation of the affected areas. read more

Pres Jonathan, Nigerian Politicians Blocking Ogoni Clean-Up

Of course, $hell has over the years refuted allegations of environmental degradation in Ogoni. The company has nowhere to hide from this environmental catastrophe that is killing Ogonis faster than not. Although my source says $hell is willing to deposit the take-off money, it is also common with the company taking undue advantage of the envy and division, greed and corruption in Nigeria.

Thieves steal £2.8bn of oil out of Shell’s pipelines in Niger Delta

By Rob Davies In Port Harcourt, Nigeria: PUBLISHED: 20:59, 28 March 2012 |

Thieves siphoned up to $4.5bn (£2.8bn) of oil out of Shell’s pipelines in the Niger Delta last year, in a worsening epidemic that threatens to overwhelm efforts to reduce oil spills.

‘Bunkering’ – the industry term for stealing oil from pipelines – resulted in lost production of up to 100,000 barrels per day last year.

The sheer scale of the problem means SPDC – Shell’s joint venture with the Nigerian government – is losing more oil to bunkering than is produced by countries such as Tunisia and Ukraine. read more
