Little more than a decade ago, Shell was a by‐word for corporate mistrust. Not only had it caused public outrage with its plans to sink the Brent Spar oilrig in the Atlantic, but the energy giant was also facing intense opposition to its activities in Nigeria (where it was perceived to be plundering this developing nation).
