Royal Dutch Shell Plc .com: Royal Dutch Shell CEO Jeroen van der Veer: meek and resigned

From Yale Center for the Study of Globalization

The globe has entered an era of instability according to Moisés Naím, editor in chief of “Foreign Policy,” and that has opened opportunities for small, but highly competitive forces in the business, political and financial worlds. Some examples: Multinational corporations like Royal Dutch Shell no longer protests movements toward nationalization of oil supplies in small Latin American countries like Bolivia, and the 155-year old “New York Times” suddenly regards eight-year old Google as a major competitor. Incumbent candidates of government elections in the free world used to win by a landslide, but more elected government officials face precarious futures, with leadership gained by razor-thin victories over their opponents. A new state of global disarray allows increasing visibility and power for many small companies, candidates and governments, yet also accounts for much of the current chaos. – YaleGlobal read more

U.S. President George W. Bush has suggested European countries would be wise to diversify dependence on Russia’s energy resources so they don’t have to worry about supply, Canadian Press agency reported.

In a round table meeting with foreign journalists, which took place on Monday, July 10, Bush refused to be drawn directly into criticism that Russia is sliding on democratic reforms and intimidating Europeans with its vast supplies of oil and natural gas. “I think each nation or each group of nations has to make their own national security calculations,” said Bush, who’s attending the Group of Eight meeting this week in Russia with Canada and other top industrialized countries. read more

FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
Pricing Set for Friday
With Valuation Talk
Of About $70 Billion
By GREGORY L. WHITE in Moscow and ALISTAIR MACDONALD in London
July 12, 2006

Russian state oil company OAO Rosneft is closing the order book a day ahead of schedule today on its landmark initial public offering, beginning the sensitive process of balancing strong demand from international oil companies against the desire to include Western fund managers, who have been cooler to the deal.

The Kremlin’s tightening grip on the energy sector has fueled demand for Rosneft shares among international oil companies looking to win points with the Russian government. These buyers have indicated interest in buying about $5 billion of the offering, whose overall size could total as much as $11.6 billion, according to people close to the deal. read more

Royal Dutch Shell Plc .com: Cairn’s big gamble pays off (stake bought from Shell for a giveaway price)

FROM THE FINANCIAL TIMES
By Khozem Merchant in Mumbai

Sir Bill Gammell, chief executive of Cairn Energy, believes the Edinburgh-based company is “aligned” with booming India, and so it seems. Nine-tenths of the UK oil company’s value derives from India, notably the Rajasthan desert, where its oil fields go by Hindi names whose meaning carry a ring of good portent.

One big step towards monetising that value was taken on July 3. Cairn revealed a $1bn credit facility to finance production of Mangala, Aishwariya, Raagesh­wari and Saraswati, a quartet of fields whose development was approved by the Indian government in May. read more
