Energy firms hound customers over money they don’t even owe

Homeowners threatened with debt collectors over incorrect bills

By Will Kirkman: 14 May 2021

Martin Stanley, 48, from Leicester, was forced to pay nearly £400 after being threatened with debt collectors and a default against his credit file by SSE, after it incorrectly increased his final bill.

Mr Stanley had tried to switch from SSE to Shell Energy, but after submitting a final reading, was told that it was too low compared to industry data. Shell then based his starting reading on the “estimated usage”. This meant Mr Martin suddenly owed £675 to his old supplier. read more

More extracts from Shell Energy customer reviews posted during the past 48 hours on Trustpilot: “Rubbish broadband. Sometimes I can’t get WiFi in the same room as the router”: “is advertised as fibre but the speeds are really poor. It’s terribly frustrating when you’re working from home.”: “If you want a broadband that only works 50%of the time then go for shell”: completely unreliable. It is slow, buffers and fails to play internet tv.”: “Disaster, the whole experience was a train wreck, surprised they’re still in business!” read more

Shell investor RWC to support alternate climate proposal at upcoming AGM

Shell investor RWC to support alternate climate proposal at upcoming AGM

May 13, 2021 8:27 AM ETRoyal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.A)By Carl SurranSA News Editor

  • Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.ARDS.B) investor RWC says it will vote against the company’s energy transition plan at next week’s annual general meeting and instead will support a rival climate-related resolution filed by activist group Follow This.
  • Shell’s plan is “not ambitious enough, unsatisfactory in its detail and does not put the company on a path to alignment with the Paris Agreement within this decade,” RWC says.
  • The investment firm’s move follows recent support for the Follow This climate resolution from the U.K.’s Local Authority Pension Fund Forum, as well as rising support for Follow This proposals at other oil majors including BP.
  • RWC says it held ~15M shares in Shell as of May 4.
  • While the result will be non-binding, Shell would become the first major oil company to give investors a chance to vote on its energy transition strategy.

    Simon Jessop: May 13, 2021: 12.27 PM BST

    Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) investor RWC said on Thursday it planned to back a climate-related shareholder proposal put forward at the company’s annual meeting by activist group Follow This.

    BP and Shell not serious about net zero: Sarasin

    BP and Shell not serious about net zero: Sarasin

    By Alex Hamer: May 12, 2021

    Oil and gas majors face votes on actually bringing their strategies in line with the Paris Agreements, while activist fund Sarasin & Partners says they are marching towards stranded assets and more write-downs

    Sarasin head of stewardship Natasha Landell-Mills said that neither major was close to shifting their business models from extracting oil and gas.

    “We do not believe BP or Shell can be serious about getting to net zero until their accounts and capex plans are aligned with that goal,” she said. read more

    Judge calls for more JP Morgan disclosure in OPL 245 case

    Judge calls for more JP Morgan disclosure in OPL 245 case

    JP Morgan must provide more documents to Nigeria, as the two sides duke it out over payments in connection to the OPL 245 scandal.

    JP Morgan must provide more documents to Nigeria, as the two sides duke it out over payments in connection to the OPL 245 scandal.

    Justice Calver handed down a judgement this morning, following a hearing that took place on May 5.

    Nigeria welcomed the ruling. A representative said JP Morgan had been required “to disclose documents from 5 further senior executives and compliance officers at the bank who were involved in signing off on US$875 million of fraudulent payments in connection with the OPL 245 scandal and in US compliance investigations carried out shortly before the bank decided to pay out anyway”.

    The bank should give a “clear and unambiguous account of exactly how the decisions to make these huge payments were made when it was on notice that to pay out risked its customer, Nigeria, being defrauded,” the representative continued.

    “Justice will be sought for the people of Nigeria, who will be pleased the trial will begin early next year.”

    Calver’s ruling set out a number of searches JP Morgan must carry out. Among those named to comply with the order are Pamela Johnson, Lester Pataki and John Gibbons, high-ranking executives at the bank. read more

    Ron Bousso: May 11, 2021

    Shareholder advisory PIRC recommended investors vote against Shell’s non-binding resolution on its energy transition strategy on Tuesday, setting up a showdown at its annual general meeting next week.

    The Pensions & Investment Research Consultants (PIRC), a major proxy advisory, said Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDSa.L) strategy to cut emissions “does not seem to have a clear plan for the competitive aspects of the energy transition”. read more

    Big Oil and its green ambitions could be about to get a serious reality check

    Big Oil and its green ambitions could be about to get a serious reality check

    Sam Meredith: PUBLISHED TUE, MAY 11 20211:29 AM EDT

    KEY POINTS

    • Oil and gas majors on both sides of the Atlantic are preparing to hold their annual shareholder meetings in the coming weeks.

    • At present, not a single oil and gas company is aligned with Paris-consistent emission reduction targets or investment levels.

    • In a first for the industry, Shell will put its own net-zero transition plan to its shareholders on May 18.

    LONDON — The month of May promises to be a ground-breaking one for Big Oil.

    Oil and gas majors on both sides of the Atlantic are preparing to hold their annual shareholder meetings in the coming weeks. It comes at a time when the world’s largest corporate emitters are under immense pressure to set short, medium and long-term emissions targets that are consistent with the Paris Agreement.

    At present, not a single oil and gas company is aligned with Paris-consistent emission reduction targets or investment levels more than five years after the landmark climate accord was ratified by nearly 200 countries. The agreement is widely recognized as critically important to avoid an irreversible climate crisis. read more

    Half of Shell Energy Mix to Be Clean Next Decade

    Half of Shell Energy Mix to Be Clean Next Decade

    by Bloomberg | Laura Hurst | Monday, May 10, 2021

    (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s head expects clean energy to make up half of the company’s energy mix “somewhere in the next decade.”

    “If we do not make that type of process by the middle of next decade, we have a problem not just as a company but as a society,” Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden said in an interview with AXIOS on HBO.

    Like its European peers, the Anglo-Dutch major has set itself an “ambition” to become a net-zero emissions energy company by the middle of this century. The feat involves producing less oil, more gas and renewables, as well as using technologies still in their infancy like hydrogen and carbon sequestration. Not everyone is convinced, with the energy giant set to clash with some shareholders on the matter at its annual general meeting later this month. read more

    Royal Dutch Shell Consortium To Receive $2.4B For Carbon Capture Project – Report

    [email protected] (Ben Mahaney):

    According to Dutch broadcaster NOS, the Dutch government will grant Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and its group about $2.4 billion in subsidies for a climate change project.

    In January, Shell, Exxon (XOM), Air Liquide, and Air Products sought the government’s support for their project to reduce the Netherlands’ carbon footprint. The project encompasses capturing and storing carbon dioxide from industrial operations in the Rotterdam port area instead of letting it go into the atmosphere. The government has granted their request. read more

    Big Oil Is In Desperate Need Of New Discoveries

    Big Oil Is In Desperate Need Of New Discoveries

    By Alex Kimani – May 10, 2021, 2:00 PM CDT

    The year 2020 was a watershed moment for the fossil fuel sector. Faced with a global pandemic, severe demand shocks and a shift towards renewable energy, experts warned that nearly $900 billion worth of reserves–or about one-third of the value of big oil and gas companies–were at risk of becoming worthless.

    Even Big Oil mostly appeared resigned to its fate, with Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A) CEO Ben van Beurden declaring that we had already hit peak oil demand while BP Plc. (NYSE:BP)—a company that doubled down on its aggressive drilling right after the historic 2015 UN Climate Change Agreement--finally gave in saying “..concerns about carbon emissions and climate change mean that it is increasingly unlikely that the world’s reserves of oil will ever be exhausted.” BP went on to announce one of the largest asset writedowns of any oil major after slashing up to $17.5 billion off the value of its assets and conceded that it “expects the pandemic to hasten the shift away from fossil fuels.” read more

    Will Supermajors Finally Be Held Accountable For Oil Spills?

    Will Supermajors Finally Be Held Accountable For Oil Spills?

    By Global Risk Insights – May 08, 2021, 12:00 PM CDT

    A British Supreme Court ruling has brought to a head a 13-year-old battle to hold Royal Dutch Shell accountable for massive oil spills in the Niger Delta in 2008 and 2009. This creates a precedent for taking multinational corporations to trial in the home countries of their parent companies. This may mark the beginning of a more regulated global environment, in which subsidiary companies responsible for human rights abuses happening abroad could be held more accountable. Whether this will be an effective solution remains to be seen.  read more
