Shell makes headlines in Nigeria today

Bloomberg Businessweek reported “Shell Shuts Nigeria’s Bonga on Possible Worst Leak in Decade”

Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Europe’s largest oil company, shut its 200,000 barrel-a-day Bonga field off Nigeria after a leak during a tanker loading caused what may be the country’s worst offshore spill in more than a decade.

I am thinking that Shell is going to have some serious explaining to do to the people of Nigeria.

This is exactly why Shell needs to prepare stronger environmental assessment with stronger emergency failure plans.  We don’t need a major catastrophe on our traditional lands.

We are planning on creating a petition in 2012 so you can let Canadian leaders know how you feel about Shell operating on traditional Dene lands in Northern Alberta, so stay tuned!

Happy Holidays everyone and Mashi Cho for reading.
