Shell Corrib Gas Project mired in corruption allegations


The graphic message below was apparently sent by email  to Michael Crothers, the Chief Executive of Shell EP Ireland and Royal Dutch Shell CEO Peter Voser.

It was fired off by an irate Irish company OSSL, a supplier of goods and services to the Shell Corrib project in Ireland.

OSSL has previously accused Shell management of instructing them to make corrupt payments/gifts to third parties on behalf of Shell, including Police involved in handling environmental protests against the controversial project. OSSL claim that invoices were falsified on the express instruction of Shell EP Ireland.

Lies about Shell safety record on Corrib Gas Project?


Lies about Shell safety record on Corrib Gas Project?

Oct 26th, 2012 by John Donovan.

Hi John,

I saw that you posted up the “Mayo Today” article entitled “Corrib safety clock hits three million hours mark”.

In the article Shell claim:

“The record was reached on October 4 and the workscope covered included all onshore pipeline and terminal activities, plus all offshore work managed out of Erris. This represented an incredible 833 days without a safety incident leading to a staff member or contractor having to take time off work due to injury – stretching back to June 24, 2010.”

This is a lie. I myself witnessed a Shell security guard being carried on a stretcher on a Shell site in January 2012.

I’ve also been contacted by an employee who told of two injuries on site that he knew of;

A female employee had her leg trapped by a steel gate at the Aughoose site in December 2011. This injured employee was off work for 4 or 5 months as a result of the incident.

A security guard injured his knee on the site around January this year.� He returned to work a few days later.

At the time of the first incident the employee said that they were handed jackets to wear with the 2,000,000+ hours worked without injuries even though their colleague was off duty at the time.

There have been a number of other rumored injuries on the Aughoose site in the last few months but nothing confirmed on these yet.

Take care,

Eoin
