Vanguard: FG files 42-count charge against Adoke, AGIP, Shell over Malabu oil scam


By Ikechukwu Nnochiri: JAN 21, 2020

The Federal Government, on Monday, slammed a fresh 42-count charge against the former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Mohammed Adoke, SAN, over alleged fraud in the $1.1billon Malabu oil deal.

Adoke, who served as AGF under the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, was arrested upon his return to the country from Dubai, United Arab Emirate, on December 19, 2019.

He went on self-exile shortly after ex-President Jonathan lost his re-election bid in 2015, but was arrested and detained in Dubai by the INTERPOL on November 11. read more

Harassed to pay a bill 3 days earlier than it’s actually due

I have an energy bill that is due 24th of January, however today (21st of January) I’m getting an SMS from this hideous company telling me to pay my bill already. The message says that the bill payment is due. Seriously? I was getting this before, but this is a new “record”… 3 days before the bill is due … STOP HARASSING ME.

Terrible Customer Service

First utility was an excellent company. Since they went over to Shell the customer service has gone rapidly downhill.

They have their business model completely wrong. Isn’t it interesting how they have a member of staff responding to each of these reviews yet they have no staff available to actually deal with customer’s queries? Something very wrong there. read more

E&E NEWS: Meet America’s new superpolluters: Plastic plants

Benjamin Storrow, E&E News reporter

A recent study identified 88 petrochemical projects along the Gulf Coast that are either in the planning stage or under construction. If all are completed, their combined emissions output could reach 150.8 million metric tons, the equivalent of 38 coal plants.

The same oil and gas boom that helped clean up the power sector has also made it cheaper to turn natural gas into plastics, fertilizer and other products. The process is emissions-intensive. Large quantities of natural gas liquids like ethane and propane are fed into enormous furnaces and heated to extremely high temperatures, creating smaller hydrocarbon molecules that can be separated and turned into different plastic products. read more

Fool.co.uk: Could climate change cause the Shell share price plunge to 1,300p?

At first glance, the Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) share price looks like a desirable investment. The stock is trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 13.3. It also offers a dividend yield of 6.3%.

However, the oil and gas major is facing one major challenge in the years ahead that could hurt its growth. It could also render billions of pounds of investment defunct. This is the threat of climate change.

Global warming

Investors all around the world are starting to wake up to the threat of climate change and the impact it could have on industries. For most companies, re-focusing their businesses to be more green is relatively easy. Unfortunately, for Shell, it isn’t. read more

Daily Record: Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh told off by Shell Energy for swearing in ‘f****** joke’ Twitter row over fuel bill

The Scots writer was ordered to ‘refrain from swearing’ by Shell energy when he complained about their service as he struggled to settle an outstanding bill online.

By Stuart Macdonald: 09:47, 21 JAN 2020

Trainspotting author Irvine Welshhas blasted his energy company after they warned him about swearing onlinein a dispute over a bill.

WIRED: A Surge of New Plastic Is About to Hit the Planet

Companies like ExxonMobil, Shell, and Saudi Aramco are ramping up output of plastic — which is made from oil and gas, and their byproducts — to hedge against the possibility that a serious global response to climate change might reduce demand for their fuels, analysts say.

SCIENCE: 01.20.2020 10:00 AM

As public concern about plastic pollution rises, consumers are reaching for canvas bags, metal straws, and reusable water bottles. But while individuals fret over images of oceanic garbage gyres, the fossil fuel and petrochemical industries are pouring billions of dollars into new plants intended to make millions more tons of plastic than they now pump out.

Companies like ExxonMobil, Shell, and Saudi Aramco are ramping up output of plastic — which is made from oil and gas, and their byproducts — to hedge against the possibility that a serious global response to climate change might reduce demand for their fuels, analysts say. Petrochemicals, the category that includes plastic, now account for 14 percent of oil use, and are expected to drive half of oil demand growth between now and 2050, the International Energy Agency (IEA) says. The World Economic Forum predicts plastic production will double in the next 20 years. read more

Shell Energy driving many customers to illness and despair

By John Donovan

Postings and messages I have read or received in the last 48 hours lead me to the conclusion that bullying understaffed Shell Energy customer service is driving some of its locked-in customers to illness and despair.

Some staff must be uncomfortable having to treat vulnerable customers so shabbily and ruthlessly. How will they feel if someone does resort to suicide, as has been threatened?

There are so many disturbing customer postings on Trustpilot and other review sites about Shell Energy that there may be enough potential claimants to warrant a class-action lawsuit? read more

OilPrice.com: Is This The End For Big Oil Dividends?

Since 2010, the five largest oil majors have spent vastly more than they have generated when including shareholder payouts. ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron, Total, and Royal Dutch Shell have dished out a combined $536 billion in dividends and share buybacks since 2010, a figure that far exceeds the $329 billion in free cash flow over the same period, according to a new report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).

That comes out to a gap of $207 billion, or about 39 percent of the total that was given to shareholders. The shortfall had to be made up somehow. According to IEEFA, the oil majors bridged the gap by selling off assets and taking on debt. read more

CNN: Oil and gas companies will only survive the climate crisis if they spend more now

By : Published 11:46 pm

By Hanna Ziady, CNN Business

The oil and gas industry needs to work harder and faster to tackle the climate crisis if it wants to remain profitable, a leading energy group says.

The oil and gas industry needs to work harder and faster to tackle the climate crisis if it wants to remain profitable, a leading energy group says.

Oil and gas companies should do much more to respond to the threat of climate change, and cannot rely on fossil fuels to keep driving returns, the International Energy Agency said in a report Monday.

Since 2015, the industry has directed less than 1% of its annual capital expenditure towards low-carbon businesses, according to the report.

Some companies have spent up to 5% but “there are few signs of the large-scale change in capital allocation needed to put the world on a more sustainable path,” it said. read more

EnergyVoice.com: Turning proactive oil firms like Shell into pariahs is misguided

Media reports of organisations announcing divestment and a distancing from oil and gas are increasing.

The recent Energy Voice article Royal College of GPs halts OGUK conference over climate concerns is a case in point. In the eyes of many oil and gas has become a toxic brand.

Extinction Rebellion recently blockaded Shell’s Aberdeen headquarters with one protestor saying “we have no option to start weaning ourselves off fossil fuels.”

But isn’t that what Shell state they are doing?

Shell’s Energy Transition Report says: “Changing our portfolio in the long term, beyond 2030 describes Shell’s intent to move in step with society towards a lower-carbon future. It describes our ambition to halve the Net Carbon Footprint of the energy products we sell by 2050. This will mean reducing emissions from our operations, but most of the reductions will come from changing the portfolio of products we sell. read more

Terrible

Shell energy are terrible. Extremely long wait to get through to speak to someone and then there is a language barrier. Also long waits for the online chats of which you never receive a transcript of what was said. STAY AWAY!

Shell Energy dreadful company

Dreadful, arrogant uncaring service from Shell Energy in respect of a vulnerable customer registered on their so-called Priority Services Register. The most uncaring company I have ever encountered in nearly thirty years as a career. No responses to complaints, no response to call back requests, lost paperwork, denial of receipts and foreign staff who cannot understand English. This company is not fit to be an energy supplier. As for renewal? Never in a million years. read more

SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS AGAINST SHELL ENERGY 

SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS AGAINST SHELL ENERGY 

Permission was given by Caroline Ryan to publish her comments about Shell Energy which she accuses of holding her hostage as a customer, making threats to destroy her credit rating and of sabotaging her switch to a different energy supplier, Octopus. 

From Caroline Ryan

After 12 months of arguing with this company they have now sent me a court summons?

I signed up with this lot and cancelled within 2 days.

They then sabotaged my switch to Octopus.

Once I received a cancellation notice from Octopus I called them. read more

NYT: Police Detain 185 Climate Protesters at Brussels Car Show

By Jan. 18, 2020

BRUSSELS — Police detained 185 protesters in central Brussels on Saturday after the environmental protest group Extinction Rebellion staged demonstrations at a car show in protest at the auto industry’s role in CO2 emissions that cause climate change.

The protest came only days after the European Commission unveiled ideas on how to finance its flagship Green Deal project that aims to make the European Union a CO2 emissions-neutral area by 2050, in part through the transformation of the car industry. read more

thenational.scot: Environmental group takes legal action against Shell

By Karin Goodwin Reporter: 19 Jan 2020

A GROUNDBREAKING legal case being taken against oil company Shell could have dramatic consequences for the Dutch company’s Scottish North Sea operations, it has been claimed by environmental organisations.

The legal action, being led by Friends of the Earth (FOE) Netherlands on behalf of more than 30,000 people from 70 countries, aims to compel the company to “cease its destruction of the climate”.

Plaintiffs in the case argue that Shell is violating its duty of care and threatening human rights by knowingly undermining the world’s chances to stay below 1.5C, the level agreed to be critical by the 2018 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. read more

BBC News:Climate change: Extinction Rebellion end blockade at Shell’s Aberdeen HQ

Governments and corporations like Shell all agree that my children are facing a catastrophic climate and ecological collapse yet are doing next to nothing to prevent this.”

16 Jan 2020

Extinction Rebellion protesters have ended a blockade at the entrances to Shell’s Aberdeen headquarters.

Activists arrived at the Altens base at about 06:30 and remained at the site until 19:30 in a bid to “hold Shell to account”.

The group said the protest was part of its two-week long campaign targeting the fossil fuel industry.

Shell said it was addressing its emissions and helping customers to reduce theirs.

And industry body Oil and Gas UK (OGUK) said climate change would not be solved by “stunts”. read more
