- Royal Dutch Shell said it was facing legal action in the Netherlands related to its activities in Nigeria.

The company said it had been informed by the Dutch Public Prosecutor's Office that it was nearing the conclusion of an investigation.

Shell was also told by the DPP that it was preparing to prosecute the company for criminal charges.

The charges directly or indirectly related to the 2011 settlement of disputes over oil prospecting license 245 in Nigeria.

'As appropriate, we will provide updates as this matter progresses,' Shell said.
