The Court of Appeals has calendared for hearing a pending petition of Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp. questioning a Manila regional trial court’s resolution that ordered the Big Three oil companies to open their books of account to government audit amid allegations of price fixing.

Shell’s Retreat from Oil Site Downplayed

by  Emilia Narni J. David: BusinessWorld: Thursday, January 05, 2012

Shell Philippines Exploration B.V. remains interested in bidding for other oil and gas prospects even as it pulled out of one of its work sites, the Energy department yesterday claimed.

The government said the withdrawal of Shell from service contract 54B is to allow the firm to look at more sites in the country.

“Shell has expressed to the Energy department its continued interest in exploration opportunities in the Philippines and will bid for new areas,” said Energy Undersecretary Jose M. Layug in a text message. read more

Why you can’t be sure of SHELL

Dear John,

Thank you very much for giving my letter a chance to be published in your site.

Shell scam against its employees in the Philippines?

You are a precious gift to me and to others who are presently enslaved by what you called “tyranny” being capriciously committed by Shell against its very own employees.

I am very thankful that I known your website and you, because in the early moments of my struggle, nobody seemed to be listening, but now,  that you hear me, I believe, the honorable justices of the courts in the Philippines down to the labor arbiter who voluntary opted be ignorant of the law are not only listening …more so they have their legs shaking because of the exposure of  their malfeasance and wrongdoing. read more

Oil spill in the Philippines

Dear Mr. Donovan,

I am a resident of Bangkal village in Makati City, a working-class neighbourhood in the Philippines.

I wish to tell you that Shell and Chevron have done a great environmental damage to our ground, but have kept quiet about it all this time.

A month ago, an oil spill was discovered in our area, where a pipeline runs under it. The spill is said to have been going on unnoticed for some months. The pipeline carries Shell and Chevron products. Our government has somewhat penalized the pipeline operator, First Philippine Industrial Corp. (which is incidentally 40% owned by Shell Petroleum). But the owners of the spilled fuel have yet to own up to the mess. read more

“THE PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT WILL HAVE to resolve existing taxation issues involving the Shell Group of Companies here if it expects to see more Dutch companies investing in the country.”: “Shell Group country chair Edgar Chua said the oil refiner was still reviewing whether it should retain or eventually close down its refinery here.”

Monday Sept 19, 2005

THE PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT WILL HAVE to resolve existing taxation issues involving the Shell Group of Companies here if it expects to see more Dutch companies investing in the country.

Ric Hettinga, the Royal Netherlands Embassy deputy chief of mission, said in a recent interview that the less obstacles to investing here, particularly with regard to taxation, the better chance there was of Dutch firms bringing their businesses into the Philippines.

“We will be happy if taxation would be such that Dutch companies can operate here,” Hettinga told reporters. read more

Inq7.net: Oil prices seen going up further

“Soaring prices in the international market could be attributed to the continued threat of terrorist attacks on oil installations in the Middle East, particularly in Iraq, and the high demand for fuel in the United States brought by the summer driving season.”

PUMP prices of petroleum products can still go up in the next several weeks, with or without an increase in import tariffs or excise taxes.

The Independent Philippine Petroleum Companies Association — which groups “new players” in the industry dominated by the Big Three companies Petron Corp., Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp. and Caltex Philippines Inc. — said the new players, which are all importers of finished products, still had to recover costs of 0.78 peso a liter for unleaded gasoline and as much as 3.81 pesos a liter for diesel. As this was the case, pump prices had nowhere to go but up, the group said. read more
