ShellNews.net: Shell insider view on Sakhalin II loan news from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development: "In spite of Shell's attempts to spin this announcement, this does not mean that the project has been given a clean bill of health.": Thursday 15 December 2005: 12.15 EST
EMAIL FROM A SHELL INSIDER
The EBRD has only said that the EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) process for Sakhalin has now been conducted in accordance with its requirements.
In spite of Shell's attempts to spin this announcement, this does not mean that the project has been given a clean bill of health. The contents of the EIA will show what the environmental impact will be, and it is then for the world to judge if the consequences are acceptable.

Alfred Donovan has had business dealings with Shell stretching back almost 50 years. In the 1980’s & 90’s the sales promotion company he founded with his son, John (Don Marketing) created and supplied multimillion dollar national promotions for Shell on an international basis. He and his son probably hold the world record for suing Shell, having subsequently brought a series of court actions: five for breach of confidence or breach of contract, and two for libel. They have never lost a case against Shell. Details about the litigation are published on ShellNews.net, the unique website owned by the Donovan’s. It contains the world’s largest collection of articles, news and reports focused on Royal Dutch Shell and its activities – astonishingly, over 6,000 web pages. Mr Donovan own and uses the registration to the dotcom domain name for Shell’s unified $200 billion (USD) company: Royal Dutch Shell Plc (royaldutchshellplc.com). Shell made an unsuccessful attempt to seize it by instituting proceedings via the World Intellectual Property Organisation in May 2005. A WIPO panel gave a unanimous verdict in favour of Mr Donovan in August.
