Oil spills have had devastating consequences for Nigerian communities, and Shell is responsible for most of them. For decades Shell’s negligence has disrupted people’s livelihoods and brought about irreparable environmental damage. This is not the first time Shell has had to pay a fine or settlement, and most likely, not the last.
Shell and other oil companies are putting in the work to invest in Nigeria and its communities. Shell is committed to Nigeria’s development and is working to build major upstream projects and improve the current infrastructure already in Nigeria in a safe and sustainable way.
