Shell companies have operated in Nigeria for over 50 years. They generate billions of dollars of income for the government, create jobs and provide energy for the country. They supply international markets with oil and gas. And they spend millions of dollars a year on community development. In the Niger Delta, where most of the oil is produced, poverty and violence are serious problems, making it one of the most difficult places where Shell companies do business.
