Nigeria: Negligence in the Niger Delta: decoding Shell and Eni’s poor record on oil spills
This ground breaking research project by Amnesty International has exposed evidence of serious negligence by oil giants Shell and Eni, whose irresponsible approach to oil spills in the Niger Delta is exacerbating an environmental crisis. Through the Decoders network, an innovative platform developed by Amnesty International to crowdsource human rights research, the organization enlisted thousands of supporters and activists to collect data about oil spills in the Niger Delta. These findings confirm that Shell and Eni are failing to operate responsibly and in line with Nigerian law and best practice standards. Their failures are resulting in worse pollution in the Niger Delta, which has a negative impact on the rights of the people living there.
