Investors press for disclosure of tar sands’ climate risk

The US regulator has been reviewing the regulations on the way reserves are calculated since 2004, when Shell fell foul of its rules and was forced to "lose" a quarter of its assets. The move led to fines, a plunging share price and the exit of its chairman, Sir Philip Watts. In June the SEC issued new proposals that would allow previously excluded resources such as oil sands to be "classified" as oil and gas reserves. They would also allow companies to disclose their "probable" and "possible" reserves as well as "proved" reserves, as at present.

The Big Push

In May, Royal Dutch Shell PLC, the Anglo-Dutch energy giant, announced it was pulling out of the London Array, a massive offshore-wind project, because rising costs raised doubts about the farm's profitability.
