Go faster, be bolder”: setting the pace at Shell

Go faster, be bolder”: setting the pace at Shell

CEO Ben van Beurden talks about the year just gone, the year to come and why Shell must speed up its transformation.

By Joanna Wrighton and Rob van’t Wel on Jan 20, 2022

It was another extraordinary year for Shell. What were the highlights of 2021 for you?

The launch of our Powering Progress strategy was a huge moment. It’s the most complete and clearest articulation of our strategy in Shell’s recent history. It includes ambitious goals for shareholders, for action on carbon emissions, for people and for the environment. Powering Progress also sets the most ambitious targets in our industry to reduce emissions. read more

RENEWED SHELL DIVESTMENT OF ONSHORE ASSETS: NOTHING TO CHEER ABOUT

-By Zik Gbemre

RENEWED SHELL DIVESTMENT OF ONSHORE ASSETS: NOTHING TO CHEER ABOUT

  • Insecurity is the single challenge pushing Shell and other multinationals out of the dreadful Nigerian investment climate.
  • It’s hypocritical of the President and Governors of the Niger Delta to go about the world begging for foreign investors when those already established are exiting the country.
  • Even for a developed economy like Russia, Putin had to step in to restrain Shell’s threat to leave the disunited Soviet Union at war with breakaway nations.

Insecurity was the biggest challenge that forced Shell to start divesting its onshore assets in the Niger-Delta, starting with stakes in Delta state in 1999.

Due to large scale youth violence encouraged by Chief James Ibori, tribal wars, ceaseless oil theft and communal disturbances, climaxing in a deliberate attempt by Governor Ibori successor cousin, Emmanuel Uduaghan’s desperation to buy some of the key assets provided the impetus for Shell’s gradual exit from Delta. read more

Shell CEO Ben Van Beurden: Carbon emissions court ruling was ‘body blow’

London Evening Standard

Shell CEO Ben Van Beurden: Carbon emissions court ruling was ‘body blow’

By Simon Freeman: 20 Jan 2022
ROYAL DUTCH SHELL’s CEO Ben van Beurden today described a court ruling from The Hague ordering faster, deeper cuts to the company’s carbon emissions as a “body blow”.

In comments likely to provoke controversy among green activists, he said: “I was listening at home as the judge gave her verdict. It felt like a body blow.

“I found it deeply troubling that Shell as a single business should be held accountable for how the world produces and uses energy.” read more

Shell broadband is the worst company I have ever dealt with

Shell broadband is the worst company I have ever dealt with…

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 Prelude FLNG a GIANT MISTAKE?

The Times

Prelude to brighter future for gas runs into a storm

Emily Gosden Energy Editor: Monday 17 Jan 2022

In the open ocean more than 120 miles off the coast of Australia lies Prelude, Shell’s floating liquefied natural gas plant — the biggest floating object ever made. The energy group spent billions of dollars building the vessel, the length of four football pitches, to tap gas beneath the seabed in this remote location, superchill it to a liquid and offload it to tankers to sell worldwide. read more

Energy firms boosted by gas price spikes paid £200bn to shareholders since 2010

Oil and gas companies should face a windfall tax to keep down consumers’ heating bills, says report from leftwing thinktank

Phillip Inman: Sun 16 Jan 2022 08.15 GMT

Oil and gas companies have handed shareholders almost £200bn since 2010 and should be hit with a windfall tax to cap heating bills that are set to rise by as much as £500 a year, according to a report on the finances of the UK’s energy sector. read more

Shell Crap Broadband Reviews: 15 Jan 2022

SHELL BROADBAND

15 Jan 2022

I have had to pay to leave my 12mths contract with Shell Energy Broadband early, which is a disgrace given the terrible service…

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

By 1pm Broadband failed twice today

… only 1pm and already today the broadband signal has failed to travel the space of less than a metre from the router to my laptop. If you want cheap broadband from Shell Energy, make sure you have loads of wires available to be able to rely on a signal to your devices. Otherwise you will be disappointed with the service. Only 3 more sleeps and I will have a new provider. I have had to pay to leave my 12mths contract with Shell Energy Broadband early, which is a disgrace given the terrible service I have received over the last nine months. I have been advised to contact Ofcom, so this is on my jobs to do list read more

Shell Energy have not got a clue! Absolute clowns

Shell Energy have not got a clue!

Shell Energy have not got a clue! Apart from overcharging their customer service dept is horrendous! They overcharged us…then reimbursed us…then demanded the money again!! Absolute clowns. Do not sign up to Shell Energy peoples!!! Stick with British Gas.

A shower of cluelessness

I needed to upgrade my main fuse and was told by my network supplier that my energy company (Shell) should’ve upgraded the tails when they installed my smart meter. As they hadn’t, I rang to try and arrange them to be changed. After being on hold for 15 minutes I spoke to the first operator who seemed clueless as to what I was asking and transferred me to EV tariff team who (unsurprisingly and after a further hold) also didn’t know what I needed. They passed me back to customer services who (after another 20 minutes on hold) again seemed confused and gave me a phone number for the smart meter installers. I rang them who said any appointment needed to be organised by Shell and referred to them! Nobody but Shell is allowed to touch the meter tails so I’m completely stuck because of their cluelessness. read more

I’m so angry and I hate being lied to by Shell Energy

By John Donovan

I first heard from a very disgruntled Shell Energy customer, Mr John Wood, in 2019. He was one of the people who encouraged me to launch the shellenergy.website

John was delighted and greatly relieved when his nightmare contractual relationship with Shell Energy came to an end.

Unfortunately, his celebrations were short-lived. The company he switched to went bust and without his permission or consent the energy regulator switched his account back to Shell.

Shell Energy, a company he had come to despise, was forced on him. read more

Shell Prelude Meltdown: Something went very badly wrong here…

Shell Prelude meltdown: Something went very badly wrong here…

EXPERT COMMENT ABOUT PRELUDE MELTDOWN BY “AN  OLD SHELL E&P ENGINEERING SEA DOG”

With reference to cargo loading operations at Prelude.

It’s been a while since I was involved with these activities but the principles remain the same.  As always there have been many revisions with the objective to improve overall safety for people and property.

Prelude in particular is unique as it exports three differing products with very different properties. 3.6 million tons of LNG, 1.3 million tons condense and 0.4 million tons of LPG. read more

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

WiFi is terrible

WiFi is terrible.
1. It always drops out
2. Have reported previously, only just got an engineer out
3. They ask you to do engineer type work before sending one out
4. If anything is not as they think it should be, you will get fined
5. The engineer was supposed to come on Friday, Monday or Tuesday as we agreed and they showed up today, on a Sunday saying they were supposed to show up on the Saturday but it got too dark? Not what we agreed
6. The engineer complained they had to find out from two poles which caused the problem
7. If you are not in on the appointment day you get fined.
8. Go elsewhere it took over an hour on the phone and my partner having to do basic engineering which he isn't trained or paid for!
9. Make sure to ask for a transcript of the copy of conversation in the form of a subject access request and a written transcript of the conversations which only managers can do read more

Account Chaos Causing Worry to Disabled 83 Yr Old Person!

Diabolical!
Utterly useless customer services!
Shell Energy set up my new account after my supplier went bust recently. They didn’t tell me or ask me, and as such they’ve inadvertently used the wrong email address and have linked my account to another pre-existing one. The 83 yr old disabled gent who’s had 2 strokes is now experiencing stress and anxiety due the apparent lack of ability to resolve this problem they have created.
Trying to resolve it is incredibly difficult – feel like I am dealing with people who do not care!  Furthermore there is no telephone help, the web chat doesn’t work, and they ignore emails. The only option is via Twitter messages, but the staff I’m dealing with appear to be useless. It’s shockingly bad, I’ll have to complain to OFGEN. read more

Germany ‘putting citizens at risk by extra gas order from Groningen field’

The Times

Germany ‘putting citizens at risk by extra gas order from Groningen field

Oliver Moody, Berlin | Bruno Waterfield, Brussels The Times

The Netherlands has sharply rebuked Germany for ordering extra gas from a vast Dutch field that was supposed to be shut down because extraction has caused a series of earthquakes.

Stef Blok, the outgoing Dutch economy minister, said he was “seriously concerned” about the unexpected additional strain on the Groningen field, which could further destabilise the region’s geology.

The local government has threatened to sue over the decision and one MP in the provincial parliament said the German order was a threat to the population’s safety. read more

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.
