A federal court of appeal in the city of Owerri is scheduled to consider applications from both sides on Jan. 25, according to a lawyer for the plaintiffs. read more

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.

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

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

Thousands of Groningen gas opponents demand earthquake damage compensation

SUNDAY, JANUARY 16, 2022

An estimated eight to ten thousand people in Groningen took part in a torchlight procession against gas extraction in the province. The municipality was satisfied with the protest, which drew attention to the people living in the earthquake area.

The protest was organized in response to the Cabinet’s decision to double gas production. Protesters were also upset at the poor organization of subsidies for homeowners to strengthen their homes and make them more sustainable. read more

Shell Crap Broadband Reviews: 15 Jan 2022

SHELL BROADBAND

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

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

Shell achieved excellent returns employing just 35 people in Nassau. Its staff worldwide numbers 87,000.

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

JOHANNESBURG, Jan 13 (Reuters) – Shell’s plan for seismic testing on South Africa’s Wild Coast, which critics say threatens dolphins, seals, whales, penguins and other rare sea life, received all necessary environmental approvals, the country’s energy minister said in a letter to parliament.

In a written reply to questions that was released by parliament late on Wednesday, Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe said no shortcuts had been made in the process. read more

Shell’s Prelude FLNG risked major failure due to power issues

Shell’s Prelude FLNG risked major failure due to power issues

January 13, 2022, by 

Australia’s offshore security regulator NOPSEMA said Shell’s Prelude FLNG facility risked the “catastrophic failure” in December due to a power outage.

Prelude is a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility, located offshore, north-northeast of Broome, in Western Australia. It is designed to extract, liquefy and store natural gas at sea before it is transferred and shipped to customers. It arrived at its current location back in mid-2017.

At the beginning of December 2021,  Shell had to temporarily suspend production at the facility because of a fire that occurred at the facility the day before. Previously, the FLNG unit went offline from February 2020 to January 2021 due to an electrical trip. read more

WiFi is terrible

WiFi is terrible.
1. It always drops out

4. If anything is not as they think it should be, you will get fined

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
