Shell’s exposure to Russia is a meaningful risk

Screen Shot 2014-04-26 at 11.34.57Extracts from a Motley Fool article by Arjun Sreekumar published 19 May 2014 under the headline: Which Oil Majors Have the Greatest Exposure to Russia?

BP, Exxon, and Shell all have significant exposure to Russia. If the U.S. and its allies were to impose a ban on the export of Western oil and gas technology to new projects being undertaken by Kremlin-controlled companies, it would probably dash Exxon and Shell’s ambitions to explore areas like western Siberia and the Arctic seas. All told, BP, Exxon, and Shell’s exposure to Russia is a meaningful risk — albeit one that may already be priced in — and one that investors should carefully consider before investing in these companies. read more

Will Pension Funds continue to risk Investment in Shell?

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Extracts from a Reuters article published 19 May 2014 under the headline: Shell says fossil fuel reserves won’t be ‘stranded’ by climate regulation

LONDON, May 19 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell has dismissed the possibility that its proven oil or gas reserves will become unusable as a result of climate change regulation, saying fossil fuels will play a key role in global energy to 2050 and beyond.

Environmental campaigners, activist investor groups and some lawmakers have warned that financial markets could be overvaluing companies with large fossil fuel assets, such as Shell, thereby creating a “carbon bubble” and putting at risk trillions of dollars in pension funds. read more

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Extracts from a BloombergBusinessweek article by Lynn Doan published 19 May 2014 under the headline: “Shell Considers Permanent Coker Shutdown Amid Shale-Oil Boom”

Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA), Europe’s biggest oil company, is considering retiring one of two coking units at its only refinery in California as the company seeks to run lighter crude at the plant. Shell is considering the shutdown as hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling unleash record volumes of light oil from shale formations… “The reality is that we are looking at each individual refinery and making economic decisions as to what is the most optimal feedstock,” John Abbott, downstream director for The Hague-based Shell, said in an interview… read more

Royal Dutch Shell shameful record of appeasement

By John Donovan

For nearly a hundred years the Royal Dutch Shell Group has appeased and collaborated with evil regimes including Nazi Germany, Nigeria, Brunei, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iran, Iraq under Saddam Hussein, Apartheid South Africa and with Putin of Russia, despite his annexation of Sakhalin2 and Crimea. Anything to earn a buck irrespective of ethics, human rights abuses and massive corruption. Astonishingly, Shell claims to operate with a set of business principles. Shell’s latest CEO, Ben van Beurden, is shown bowing to Putin on 18 April 2014,  soon after Russia had used force to annexe Crimea. No shame. No morals. Its just business. It is what Ben van Beurden describes as Shell’s “economic interests.”  Following in the foot steps of the founder of the Royal Dutch Shell Group, the ardent Nazi, Sir Henri Deterding.  read more
