On another subject completely….the Chinese have done a large scale LNG deal with BP and at the same time announced that their cooperation with Shell will continue.

News Release – Issued by Shell to Sea

June 18th , 2014 – For immediate release

CHANGES TO OIL/GAS LICENSING TERMS ‘COSMETIC’

State continues to rely primarily on corporation tax to extract revenue

The changes to Ireland’s licensing terms for oil and gas announced by Pat Rabbitte today (18th June 2014) are cosmetic and will do little to address the State’s mismanagement of its valuable resources, according to Shell to Sea.[1]

Shell to Sea spokesperson Maura Harrington said: “These changes are cosmetic, Ireland will continue to rely almost exclusively on a tax on profits as a means of extracting revenue from the oil and gas it has given to private companies. We have seen recently how creative accounting has resulted in corporations such as Apple paying almost no tax on profits in Ireland .” [2,3] read more

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell: Wednesday 18 June 2014

* Files to raise up to $750 million

* Company formed by Royal Dutch Shell as an MLP

(Reuters) – Shell Midstream Partners LP, a master limited partnership formed by Royal Dutch Shell Plc, filed with U.S. regulators on Wednesday to raise up to $750 million in an initial public offering of common units.

The master limited partnership (MLP) structure allows companies to raise money in the stock market while having income taxed only at the unit holder level, avoiding corporate income taxes.

Shell Midstream said in its IPO prospectus it plans to use proceeds from the offering to acquire stakes in some pipeline companies from Shell Pipeline Company LP, a U.S. unit of Royal Dutch Shell, in exchange for cash distribution. read more
