    Will Briefcase Key to Shell, Eni Trial Get to Milan in Time?

    A briefcase seized from a Geneva apartment two years ago could be the key to an Italian bribery case against Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Eni SpA -- if it makes it to Milan in time. The bag held SIM cards, Nigerian passports, a laptop and a hard drive containing more than 40,000 documents and belonged to Emeka Obi, according to a spokesman for the Geneva Prosecutor’s Office. Swiss prosecutors found it during a raid for an unrelated investigation and are trying to get it to their Italian colleagues, who are prosecuting Obi as an alleged middle man in a $1.1 billion kickback scheme involving the energy companies vying for a Nigerian oil license.

    Norway's wealth fund voted against Shell climate target motion

    Norway's $1 trillion (£748.91 billion) wealth fund voted against a motion at Shell's (RDSa.L) annual meeting urging the energy giant to set climate targets, despite a push the fund is making for more firms to do so. Long-term investors with $10.4 trillion of assets under management, including banks BNP Paribas (BNPP.PA) and HSBC (HSBA.L), had called on Shell to set firm carbon emission targets in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. Tuesday's motion was opposed by 95 percent of the company's investors on Tuesday, including the Norwegian fund, whose spokesman said it believed companies were in a better position to set their own targets.

    Norway court hears appeal from Gassled pipeline owners over tariff cuts

    The Norwegian Supreme Court began hearing an appeal on Wednesday from some of the owners of the Gassled gas network that are challenging government cuts to pipeline tariffs. A Norwegian appeals court ruled in 2017 against the owners in a lawsuit in which they had argued that the cut in tariffs was unlawful and would cost them 15 billion Norwegian crowns (1.4 billion pounds) in lost earnings through 2028. The case against the government is being pursued by four investment companies - Solveig Gas, Silex Gas, Infragas and CapeOmega - which bought Njord Gas Infrastructure, the original owner.
