The State of New Hampshire Sues Shell Oil Co. for Failed to Disclose its Insurance Policy
Sep 5 13
A lawsuit by the state of New Hampshire claims that Shell Oil Co. deliberately failed to disclose that its insurance policy would have been able to cover the more than $2.4 million cost of contamination cleanups at several sites in the state. The state is seeking full reimbursement plus interest and said Shell is also liable for payments involving applicants at former Shell facilities. The suit said oil from underground storage tanks on at least 14 of the sites containing gas stations operated and owned by Shell in the state from the 1930's to 1998 seeped into soil and groundwater over the decades. The state has funded the cleanup projects via a state fund created in 1988 that is paid for by a tax on imported oil.
Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority Sues Apache Corp., BP America Production Co., Chevron USA Inc., ConocoPhillips Co., Exxon Mobil Corp., Shell Oil Co. and The Pickens Co. Inc. over Erosion
Jul 24 13
The oil and gas industry has cost Louisiana hundreds of acres of coastal land that serve as a natural buffer against flooding from hurricanes, officials in charge of New Orleans-area flood protection say in a lawsuit filed in Orleans Parish Civil District Court seeking to hold dozens of companies responsible. The Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East's board of commissioners claim that corrosive saltwater from a network of oil and gas access and pipeline canals has killed vegetation and swept away mountains of soil. About 100 companies are named as defendants in the lawsuit, including Apache Corp., BP America Production Co., Chevron USA Inc., ConocoPhillips Co., Exxon Mobil Corp., Shell Oil Co. and The Pickens Co. Inc. The suit says the U.S. Geological Survey has determined that "altered hydrology" associated with oil and gas activities is one of the primary causes of coastal land loss.
