Shell, in a statement, denied allegations of anti-union policies and said that affected workers were being compensated. It said: “We are currently divesting from a number of our assets in Western Niger Delta as agreed by joint venture partners and approved by the Federal Government. “This is part of a portfolio realignment exercise that will also help to grow indigenous capacity in the oil and gas industry,” it added.
Chevron officials were not immediately available for comment.
