Shell broadband is the worst…

This is the worst company I have ever dealt with.
I moved house, asked them to cancel my account and send me a bag to send the router back. I had to call them 11 times to ask for the bag and nothing arrived. I returned it at my own expense. They threatened to take £35.00 for the router from my bank account which I cancelled. Luckily I had proof that I sent it back. Will never ever deal with these people again. It was a simple request that they made extremely hard. read more

Shell gripe website sucked into US litigation between warring Shell global security spymasters

Shell gripe website sucked into US litigation between warring Shell global security spymasters

By John Donovan

Our article – “Spectacular falling out of ‘Security Professionals’ at the top of Shell” – is reprinted on several pages of a recently filed 177-page “Exhibit A” in an astonishing lawsuit involving the head of Shell Global Corporate Affairs Security, James W.D. Hall.

Mr Hall has faced a succession of accusers, starting with the Security Manager for Shell Oil Company, Crockett Oaks III. Shell settled his claim. Mr Mike Oliveri, another guy with a senior military/security affairs background also sued Shell on related allegations involving Mr Hall. Mr Oliveri is a decorated war veteran, a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve. Mr Hall’s current accuser is Mr Walied Shater a former US Secret Service agent. read more

NOPSEMA data up to 2020 shows dangerous occurrences on Shell Prelude FLNG being reported every 20 days or so?

WHAT THE PRELUDE FLNG WHISTLEBLOWER SAID IN DEC 2013: “…god for bid if anything should happen on that vessel in the future I want it known that I raised my concerns officially.”: “It will go down like a lead balloon (or possibly prelude) but if I was an Australian I would refuse to work on the vessel…”

Nine years later, the ill-fated vessel has been shut down because of repeated dangerous occurrences and near catastrophe. Shell will not be able to claim that it was not warned again and again. 

By John Donovan

The headline arises from email correspondence between retired Shell Global HSE Group Auditor Bill Campbell and John Donovan on 10 Jan 2022 relating to the Shell Prelude project. The name of a third party copied in on the correspondence has been redacted. 

But first, some extracts from emails from nearly a decade ago sent to me by a high-level whistleblower in the Prelude FLNG project. In the event of a disaster, I feel sure the authorities will be seeking all such evidence, but by then it would be too late to save lives. 

19 Dec 2013

…and also warned shell on several occasions and this advice has been ignored by all party’s as financial interests come before safety and I have serious enough concerns to want my name removed from all records.

I have documentary evidence of the state of the packages being installed on the vessel and manufactured by totally unqualified personnel, failure of any understanding of the standards and regulations by management.

The list goes on and on but regardless of my own feelings my concerns are for the whole industry if this kind of practice goes on and god for bid if anything should happen on that vessel in the future I want it known that I raised my concerns officially. read more

Will Shell have to abandon the Prelude experiment?

Will Shell have to abandon the Prelude experiment?

From John Donovan: 8 Jan 2022

Dear Mr Andrew Smith

I am writing to you in your capacity as Country Chair of Shell Australia.

I have copied the email to Shell Legal Director Mr Donny Ching and Shell CEO Mr Ben van Beurden because the subject is a matter of great importance. Namely the lives and well-being of Shell employees and contractors working on the Prelude experiment. read more

Want To Stop Climate Change? Buy Big Oil Stock

Forbes:

Want To Stop Climate Change?

Buy Big Oil Stock

Jeroen Kraaijenbrink: Contributor: Leadership Strategy: 3 JAN 2022

EXTRACTS

In an age in which stock trading is no longer reserved to Wall-Street and a climate crisis is becoming a reality, sustainability-driven shareholder activism was bound to happen. And we see it happening, with increasing impact—especially in Big Oil, responsible for the largest share of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.

“Thanks to the votes of institutional investors for the Follow This climate resolutions, Shell, Equinor, BP, Phillips 66, and Chevron have reluctantly set climate ambitions covering Scope 3 already.” And, as Follow This announced in their recent investor briefing, they will file no less than eight climate resolutions in 2022, at Shell, BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Phillips 66, Occidental Petroleum, ExxonMobil, and Marathon Petroleum. read more

POLICE INSPECTOR DEMANDS INFORMATION FROM SHELL?

POLICE INSPECTOR DEMANDS INFORMATION FROM SHELL?

By John Donovan: 31 Dec 2021

I have received emails purportedly sent to me and others by a police inspector from Sama Police Station in Vadodara City, India.

The emails contain serious allegations against Shell.

The emails may be fake or genuine.

The irate police inspector in question, N.H. Brambhatt seems keen to get into contact with Shell. He seems to have reached the conclusion that Shell is frustrating the progress of his enquiries.

Earlier today I sent the following email to Mr Donny Ching, the Legal Director of Royal Dutch Shell Plc (but not for much longer). read more

Litigation and controversy involving Shell Global Security Chief James W.D. Hall

By John Donovan

The falling out of Hall & Oaks…

This article is about litigation and controversy involving the head of Shell Global Corporate Affairs Security, James W.D. Hall and a succession of his accusers, starting with the Security Manager for Shell Oil Company, Crockett Oaks III. 

The lawyers involved in the litigation have gone to great lengths to keep certain information from reaching the public, Shell shareholders and Shell employees.

So much for Shell directors solemn pledge of openness and honesty in all of Shell’s dealings. Apparently, that does not apply to court proceedings. Shell is more interested in maintaining confidentiality about high-level skullduggery. I think it’s called a cover-up.  read more

Vicious Infighting at the top of Shell Corporate Security

Vicious Infighting at the top of Shell Corporate Security

By John Donovan

Former high-level American spooks at Shell Corporate Security, including Mr Crockett Oaks III, have made serious discrimination accusations against the mysterious Brit, Mr James W.D. Hall.

Mr Hall was once described as the top executive in Shell’s entire corporate security organization, including the Business Integrity Department. He worked for the UK Foreign Office for many years, perhaps as a spymaster. In legal papers filed yesterday, it is alleged that “Hall is a professional peddler of falsehoods”. At the time of publication of this article, Mr Hall is Business Advisor, Project Lead and Chief of Staff to the Group Crisis Team at Shell. They must be busy. read more

Shell’s arch critic John Donovan has secured the website domain name for Shell Plc

Shell’s arch critic John Donovan has secured the website domain name for Shell PLC

The shellplc.website will become operational in January to coincide with the implementation of the new name for Royal Dutch Shell Plc: Shell PLC. 

Shell has dropped the Dutch Royal Family link and ditched the Dutch part of the former Anglo-Dutch multinational company, which will now be solely a British company with its HQ solely in London, paying UK taxes. 

The Royal Dutch Shell Group self-evidently was not well disposed to the taxes imposed by the Dutch left-wing government or its support for climate change policies and parties suing Shell.  read more

Shell Energy Broadband is a total let down

Absolutely awful company – broadband does not even work upstairs in a 2 storey house, terrible customer service…

17 Dec 2021

The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy Broadband published on Trustpilot.

1 star is 1 too many!

I can not give a minus review, but they definitely don’t deserve 1 star. Absolutely awful company – broadband does not even work upstairs in a 2 storey house, terrible customer service – can’t change a direct debit date – pay when they want or cut you off and if you want to leave will quite over £200 cancellation fee read more

Shell shareholders vote on move to London

Shell shareholders vote on move to London

Fri, December 10, 2021, 2:03 AM: AFP

Shareholders in oil giant Shell will vote Friday on plans to switch its headquarters from the Netherlands to Britain after a century and drop Royal Dutch from the name.

Europe’s biggest energy firm says the move would simplify its tax and share arrangements, and accelerate its transition to net-zero emissions.

But its chairman also admitted the plan was driven by the Dutch government’s scrapping of plans to withdraw a tax on dividends.

The Dutch government said it was “unpleasantly surprised” by the plan, while Britain has hailed it as a vote of confidence in the British economy post-Brexit. read more

Avalanche of appalling reviews about Shell Broadband

7 Dec 2021

The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy Broadband published on Trustpilot.

Awful broadband service!

Trusted the Post Office, who no longer do broadband services, to transfer me to a decent-quality provider. But as soon as the service moved to Shell the quality instantly plummeted, slow and often barely existent especially at weekends. I really wish I hadn’t agreed to transfer to Shell broadband but having read the avalanche of appalling reviews elsewhere I don’t think I can face customer services, as apparently this does not help! read more

Hacking attack underway on Shell Nazi History .com website

By John  Donovan

A hacking attack is apparently underway targeting my shellnazihistory.com website.

According to Jetpack Monitoring (see above)over 50,000 total blocked brute force attacks were made on the website between Nov 4, 2021 and Dec 4, 2021.

We can only speculate on who might have the motive and any prior form to take such sinister action against a non-commercial entirely free to use highly informative website?

It is true that Shell has used cloak and dagger activity against my Shell focussed websites several times, as recently as July 2021. But there is no evidence that Shell is behind the more recent attacks. read more

Shell Signs Power Purchase Deal With World’s Largest Offshore Wind Farm

By Jaime Llinares Taboada

Royal Dutch Shell PLC said Wednesday that it has signed a 15-year power purchase agreement for electricity from Dogger Bank, the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

The oil-and-gas major has secured a 20% power share from the third phase of Dogger Bank, or Dogger Bank C. Each phase has a capacity of 1.2 gigawatts, and is expected to generate around 6 terawatt-hours of electricity a year. The wind farm is located off the northeast coast of England. read more

Allegations and Litigation Relating to Spymasters in Shell’s Corporate Security Department

Allegations and Litigation Relating to Spymasters in Shell’s Corporate Security Department

By John Donovan

See below a self-explanatory email I sent yesterday to named senior executives at Shell.

It mentions the current momentous events at Royal Dutch Shell, although that is not the subject of the email. In that connection, I have not spotted any reference in current news coverage to the Dutch police raid at Shell’s current HQ in The Hague.

That astonishing development may have fuelled a growing feeling that the Dutch government has turned anti-Shell by allowing Nigerian and climate change litigation against Shell to proceed in the Dutch courts and tightening up Dutch tax regulations affecting Shell. read more

Massive attack on royaldutchshellplc.com website
