Shell Prepare for $500 Million Class Action Settlement

Royal Dutch Shell PLC announced that it is going to pay $500 million to settle a US class action lawsuit arising from the group’s controversial oil reserves downgrade a few years ago.

Charges for the quarter totaled $232 million against $547 million a year ago. “Accordingly, management of the Shell Group has established a $500 million provision in respect of the litigation. No settlement has been reached in the matter,” it said in a statement.
