Norway’s Corporate Corruption is Destroying a Law Abiding USA Family and a Country’s Reputation of Trust

PGS ASA & Carl Richards have NEVER reached-out to clarify ANY of the issues mentioned in the blog posts directly prior to delivering their Criminal Defamation Claims angainst me in Thailand. Weren’t these blackmail? This corrupt abuse of power steamrolls truth and justice. There is a time limit for defamation claims of one-year after the publication, per the UK Limitation Act. PGS ASA used the criminal court system of Thailand maliciously, and I am near certain also illegally, to silence an accuser and whistleblower over three-years following initial publications of accusations. Any “criminal” damage was self-inflicted. When will the O&G and seismic industry wake-up and say something and demand a thorough investigation? When will PGS ASA employee’s demand an investigation and stop sucking the harmful tits of corruption? Such corruption is bad for all stakeholders, especially the victims of corruption, fraud, harassment, and discrimination. Why do we allow Norway’s evil corporations to lie and deceive the O&G and Seismic industry?

Under the Limitation Act 1980 (the Act), the applicable limitation for defamation is one year from the date of accrual of the claim, which in libel claims accrued at the time of publication.

Open Letter to Petroleum Geo-Services ASA Board of Directors (18-Jun-2017)

ATTN:                                    Walter Qvam, Chairman
CC  Directors:                     Daniel J. Piette, Holly Van Deursen, Carol Bell, Anne Grethe Dalanem, Morten Borge, Richard Herbert

Chairman Qvam, et al.:

The PGS board of directors and several senior managers are corrupt and have behaved immorally and criminally to the detriment of the enterprise and its stakeholders.
PGS board of directors and several senior managers, including compliance officers, need to be investigated thoroughly by a third-party for corruption and fraud.


I am writing this letter in order to reiterate directly and publicly my concerns regarding the direction and management of Petroleum Geo-Services ASA (PGS).


The PGS Board of Directors, PGS Executive Management, and several other senior managers have abrogated their legal agency responsibilities to the detriment of PGS stakeholders, competitors, the marine seismic service sector, as well as the greater oil and gas (O&G) industry.


As a general rule, given the choice, most would prefer not to do business with evil and dishonest moral degenerates.  Thus, the long-term business success and future of PGS is in jeopardy with the current board and executive composition of the enterprise.

Petroleum Geo-Services ASA (@PGSNews) CEO Reinhardsen Perverting the Course (1 June 2017)

Jon Erik Reinhardsen is currently the CEO and President of Norwegian marine seismic service company, Petroleum Geo-Services ASA (PGS).   Reinhardsen recently (29 May 2017) announced that he will retire from PGS at the end of August 2017.  Reinhardsen is not the only person who needs to retire from PGS.  Reinhardsen never understood the cyclic seismic industry so much as financial instruments and legal loopholes.  PGS desperately needs a solid and ethical leader and executive team who understand thoroughly the cyclic nature and technology demands of the marine seismic industry.  The new CEO should also understand the importance of adhering to core values to serve all stakeholders.  Ethics and values are the only stable thing in business, to which Reinhardsen pays only lip-service.  It is a sad testament to the O & G industry that Reinhardsen has been picked to chair Norwegian oil company Statoil.  This may be the worst decision that the Statoil board has ever made.

The image which heads this blog article is the screen capture from a Google™ Image search of PGS #Pedersen.  By any standard, leadership entrusted with advancing the company, as well as its directors and management’s, reputation would not allow being associated with such imagery and accusations.  Therefore, any settlement contract that is intended to end an employment relationship on fair, equitable and reasonable terms, yet allows the employer and its agents open to such public ridicule and criticism would not seem to accomplish its intended objectives.  In fact, the outcome of this settlement has apparently left Norwegian marine seismic service company, Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) and its UK affiliate, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited (PGSUK), agents impotent in constructively resolving such an online tirade.  The PGS/PGSUK legal compliance lawyer, Rune Olav Pedersen (PGS #Pedersen) is responsible for this contract and all of the online postings which it has inspired.

Having come across an article written by London employment law solicitor, Philip Landau (currently of Landau Law), in October 2013, I contacted and later engaged Landau to help me.  I am a U.S. citizen who was working for PGS Exploration UK Limited [PGSUK] in Weybridge, England at the time on a Company sponsored Tier 2 Shortage Occupation List) visa.  I was working in a toxic workplace and had filed a grievance citing harassment and bullying, in part, through the misuse of the PGSUK performance management system.  Inclusive to the grievance was my claim that an unsubstantiated false narrative regarding my professional performance which was being forwarded by PGS managers to impugn my professional reputation.  I believe that this was defamation and this was cited as well within my grievance.  The only formal employment action between me and PGSUK was the grievance.  There were only threats of a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) being investigated, which I qualified as harassment and bullying.  The negotiations lasted nearly six-weeks from Oct-2013 to Dec-2013.  I left England at the end of 2013 having signed a settlement contract facilitated by Landau and his assistant, Holly Rushton (Landau officially signed-off on the settlement).  Placing so much trust and confidence in Landau was a disastrous watershed event in my life.

What Philip Landau, London Employment Law Solicitor taught me about Settlement Contracts (30 April 2017)

People with means with integrity and reputations to preserve simply would not allow such published allegations to be left unanswered.  Of course, people guilty of wrong-doing also will not engage and place themselves in legal peril.  According to the IT law Wiki site, confidence fraud is the reliance on another’s discretion and/or a breach in a relationship of trust resulting in financial loss. It includes a knowing misrepresentation of the truth or concealment of a material fact to induce another to act to his or her detriment.

WHAT #PHILIPLANDAU, #LONDON #EMPLOYMENTLAW SOLICITOR TAUGHT ME ABOUT SETTLEMENT CONTRACTS (30 APRIL 2017)

Corrupt and criminal PGS/PGSUK agents have lied throughout all of this.  They have lied to me, to UK Border, to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and to stakeholders.  They have been able to lie because of Landau’s binding settlement.  Corrupt PGS/PGSUK agents have such little respect for stakeholder clients, employees, and shareholders that without shame they highlight grifters like Cather as spokespeople for anti-corruption.  Laughing like this only hurts.  What Landau taught me about employment settlement contracts is that you cannot trust anyone.
