Shell dropped 5.3 percent to 1,646 pence. BP, Europe’s second-largest oil company, slid 5.8 percent to 496 pence. Eni SpA, Italy’s biggest, lost 7.2 percent to 16.46 euros.

Crude oil for January delivery fell as much as 8.5 percent to $49.52 a barrel in New York after the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries deferred a decision to reduce output for another two weeks.

Slowing global growth means demand will be “much lower” than expected a month ago, OPEC said after the group’s Nov. 29 meeting in Cairo. Another cut on Dec. 17 may not be needed if member states enacted 80 percent of the 1.5 million barrel-a-day reduction agreed in October, Al Hayat reported, citing Saudi Arabia’s Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi. read more

Last week Shell and service player Amec were each fined £150,000 ($230,000) after an Amec worker died during operations at Clipper.

OPEC Failure Foretells Steeper Decline 10 Years After $10 Oil

Producers such as Royal Dutch Shell Plc are cutting back plans to develop deposits like Canadian oil sands. Shell indefinitely postponed the second-phase expansion of its Athabasca project because of rising construction costs. Shell, based in The Hague, also delayed seeking regulatory approval for Carmon Creek. Higher cost plans require $80-a-barrel oil to be profitable, according to Merrill Lynch.
