Members of the Bodo community in Nigeria filed a lawsuit against Shell in London High Court on 23 March , seeking compensation for two oil spills, which occurred in and in the Niger Delta. The 15, plaintiffs ask for compensation for losses suffered to their health, livelihoods and land, and they ask for clean-up of the oil pollution. They allege that the relevant pipelines caused spills because they were over 50 years old and poorly maintained, and that Shell reacted too slowly after being alerted to the spills.
However, it denies the allegations of the plaintiffs and argues that the cause of the oil spills was oil theft and sabotage. It further disputes the alleged volume of oil spilled and the size of the area affected. Shell has made settlement offers to the plaintiffs, which they refused on the basis that they were too low in light of the alleged damages suffered.
Shell "dismisses the suggestion that it has knowingly continued to use a pipeline that is not safe to operate". In turn, communities agreed to put a hold on an onoing legal claim they had brought in the London High Court, but nonetheless reserved the right to resume the claim should the clean up be inadequately conducted.
In June , Shell tried to strike out the lawsuit alleging that some members of the community obstructed clean up. The Court dismissed the claim. Shell then sought to prevent the community from going back to court by requesting to include a clause in the settlement, according to which any disruptive act by any resident of the Bodo community would lead to termination of the lawsuit.
On 24 May , a UK judge ruled that the Bodo community should retain the right to revive the claim for another year with no conditions attached, in the event of the clean-up not be completed to an adequate standard. The lawyer representing the claimants, Martyn Day from Leigh Day, said The hope is that this will forge a good relationship with Shell for the future, not only with the Bodo people but with all the Niger Delta communities that have been impacted in the same way as us.

Two spills in affected about 35 sq miles 90 sq km in southern Nigeria, according to a group suing Shell…Shell "dismisses the suggestion that it has knowingly continued to use a pipeline that is not safe to operate,"…The emails, letters and internal reports submitted to a court in London show that senior Shell employees were concerned before the spill that Shell's pipelines in the area had reached the end of their lives and needed replacing to avoid danger to lives, the environment and the economy…"The decision by Shell to continue pumping oil through pipelines which they knew were not fit for purpose is quite shocking," said Martyn Day, a senior partner at Leigh Day, the lawyers representing the community filing the claim….
BP is being sued for environmental damage that Colombian farmers allege the oil group caused to their land by building a pipeline. In a groundbreaking legal ruling, the London High Court today decided that Shell Nigeria could be legally liable for illegal bunkering of its pipelines, if it failed to take reasonable steps to protect its infrastructure.
The central issue being argued was whether Shell should take reasonable steps to protect its infrastructure given the foreseeable risk of bunkering, illegal hacking into pipelines to steal the oil. This is the first time Shell has had to face formal Court proceedings in the UK for its environmental record in the Niger Delta. A landmark UK court ruling paves the way for Shell to finally be held accountable for devastating oil pollution in the Niger Delta, Amnesty International said today.
This would include measures such as installing leak detection systems, surveillance equipment and anti-tamper equipment. The outcome of the Bodo preliminary issues trial has just been announced in London. A senior English judge ruled that the interpretation of Nigerian law by SPDC is correct in all the crucial points argued before the court.
Mr Justice Akenhead accepted that the Nigerian Oil Pipelines Act provides a comprehensive and complete regime for compensation for oil spills. This decision limits the scope of the litigation to an assessment of actual damages sustained as a result of the operational spills.
