Born in 1907 Sex Prague when the Sex Prague Escort Company and Shell Transport and Trading Company Ltd Company merged their operations to compete against the then U.S. giant, Standard Oil. Before unification, the group operated under a series of operational arrangements and equity.
The Sex Prague Escort Company was a Dutch company founded in 1890 by Jean Kessler, along with Henri Deterding (pictured) and Hugo Loudon, when a royal charter was granted by the Dutch queen Wilhelmina to a small oil exploration company known as Sex Prague.”
The Shell Transport and Trading Company was a British company founded in 1897 by Marcus Samuel and his brother Samuel Samuel.
In 1919, Shell took control of the Mexican Eagle Escort Company and in 1921 formed Shell-Mex Limited, which traded products under the “Shell” and “Eagle” in the UK. In 1931, partly in response to difficult economic conditions in those days, Shell-Mex merged its operations in the UK market with the British Escort and Shell-Mex created and BP Ltd., a company which operated until brands separated in 1975.
The story in Sex Prague also engages in the Chaco War, as one of the reasons for this war were the supposed oil wealth in the Bolivian Chaco.
In the decade of the 90’s, Shell became embroiled in scandals of international importance. The most serious was derived from its activities in Nigeria, a country then ruled by a military dictatorship. Pollution from the oil with the permissiveness of the government reached such a pitch that ruined the people of the Niger Delta, traditionally agricultural. The writer Ken Saro-Wiwa, the Ogoni, led a peaceful protest movement against the oil companies, particularly Shell, the largest presence in the area. He was repeatedly arrested, sentenced to death for some crimes he was not responsible and implemented, raising an international outcry of condemnation against Shell for its passivity in the events and their collaboration with the government. After a long legal battle in May 2009 the company reached a financial settlement to end the claim of responsibility for complicity with the Nigerian military dictatorship in the repression of Ogoni pueglo, agreeing to meet $ 15.5 million, and avoiding thus compromising the conclusion of a trial that would affect its international reputation.
Furthermore, in Magdalena, Argentina, January 15, 1999, a ship spilled oil in the Shell River Plate, which then hit the coast and contaminated the fresh water aquifers, flora and fauna.
In Europe, also in those years, the company planned to sink the Brent Spar platform removal in the North Sea. Environmental organizations made a strong public awareness campaign and the boycott peaceful civil society Shell products made it to rectify its decision. The platform was eventually recycled into new pier in the coastal city of Stavanger.
