Nigeria Bill Risks Output in Top African Oil Country, Shell Says

By Elisha Bala-Gbogbo on November 30, 2012

Nigerian plans to change the way its oil industry is regulated and funded risk cutting investment and production in Africa’s top producer, Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) said.

“Production will be down about 40 percent by 2020 without new investment,” Mutiu Sunmonu, Shell’s chairman for Nigeria, said in the copy of a conference presentation in the commercial capital of Lagos. The proposed “fiscal package is not conducive to investment. As a result, there will be few new investments.” read more

Shell Alaska boss: ‘There will be spills’

Royal Dutch Shell’s Alaska vice-president has admitted he believes “there will be spills” by companies drilling for oil in the Alaskan Arctic.

Environmental campaigners oppose drilling in the Arctic

Emily Gosden By 6:35PM GMT 29 Nov 2012

Shell is one of a handful of companies exploring in Arctic waters and began drilling off Alaska this year.

Environmentalists oppose drilling on the grounds a spill would devastate the environment.

Asked what people were concerned about, Mr Slaiby told the BBC: “There’s no sugarcoating this, it is [an] oil spill.”

“If you ask me will there ever be spills, I imagine there will be spills,” he said.

“Will there be a spill large enough to impact people’s subsistence? My view is no, I don’t believe that would happen. read more

By Steve Gelsi, MarketWatch

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — When filling up your gasoline tank in the next few years, Royal Dutch Shell wants you to know they’re working to increase the share of the fuel pumped out of Uncle Sam’s back yard.

Shell Oil Co. President Marvin Odum sees Royal Dutch Shell’s RDS.A +0.06%  growing presence in the U.S. as a selling point for investors.

“I think Wall Street probably does care about a strong country, and there’s an aspect of producing your own resources that definitely plays into that.” Odum said in an interview at the Platts Global Energy Outlook Forum. “The real question you have to come down to in the end is are these economically competitive projects to go after? The answer is yes they are.” read more

Royal Dutch Shell Wins “Company of the Year” and Commodity Excellence Honors at Platts Global Energy Awards

NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Winners from seven countries and three continents took top honors in New York City tonight at the Platts Global Energy Awards, which recognized three industry leaders and 16 companies for exemplary individual and corporate achievement. The awards program, now in its 14th year, is one of the energy industry’s premier recognition events and often referred to as the “Oscars” of the energy industry.

Netherlands-based Royal Dutch Shell also stood apart from the night’s other winners, snagging not one, but two awards – the much sought-after “Energy Company of the Year” and “Commodity Excellence Award for Natural Gas.” Judges were impressed by the company’s commitment to continual innovation despite the scale of its current operations. Shell’s downstream activities in chemical gas-to-liquids technologies development caught the judges’ attention, as did its liquefied natural gas (LNG) technologies, which enhance energy efficiency and advance LNG as a transport fuel for trucks, ships and locomotives.
