Shell response re oil pollution in the Niger Delta
Nigeria is one of the most challenging countries where Shell operates. In the Niger Delta, where most of the oil is produced, levels of poverty, unemployment, criminality and violence are high. The best thing Shell companies there can do is to operate safely, manage those issues under our direct control to the best of our ability and continue to support domestic economic growth and jobs through its business activity and revenue payments to government. Shell companies in Nigeria are committed to managing operations to a high standard, improving their performance where they can, including on environmental issues like oil spills and gas flaring.
