Feb 21 15
Shell Oil Co announced face-to-face negotiations with the United Steelworkers union (USW) failed to yield an agreement to end the 20-day-old U.S. refinery strike.

The Steelworkers said in a message to members and news media, including Reuters, that talks were continuing.
Union Workers at Shell Site Go on Strike
Feb 1 15
Workers of at least one local refinery went on strike early February 1, 2015 after the Steelworkers union failed to reach a contract deal with industry negotiators. Shell has learned that the USW has given notice to its members at the Shell Deer Park site to begin a strike at 12:01 on Feb. 1, 2015. Union members represented by the United Steelworkers union Local 13-1 in Texas City were told to prepare for a possible strike as early as February 1, 2015 morning. While union leaders and industry officials were slated to continue negotiating toward a national deal into the night, there was not yet an agreement on the table. That local represents about 1,110 workers at Marathon Galveston Bay Refinery, about 150 workers at BP Texas City Chemicals and about 800 workers at Shell Deer Park Refining. Just after 10 p.m., talks were ongoing and the message to the Texas City local no longer included a time to report to the union hall.
Shell to Pay $4 Million over Allegations of False Reimbursement Claims for Environmental Cleanup Projects
Feb 27 14
Shell Oil Company will pay $4 million to resolve allegations that it received reimbursement payments from a state fund for environmental cleanup projects even though the company sought and received payments from its insurers for the same gas station sites. The alleged false claims by Shell and its joint venture, Motiva Enterprises, LLC, involved more than a hundred gasoline stations that both companies operated throughout Massachusetts. The state's Underground Storage Tank Petroleum Product Cleanup Fund program (UST Fund) was established to expedite the cleanup of environmentally dangerous leaks from underground storage tanks, such as those commonly found at gasoline stations, by reimbursing owners and operators for eligible expenses incurred in remediating the sites. To fund the program, the Commonwealth charges tank registration and delivery fees. Under the UST Fund's regulations, claimants must disclose if they sought reimbursement from another source including insurance for expenses they submit to the UST Fund. If claimants do recover money from both insurance and the UST Fund for the same expenses, they must pay back the UST Fund.
