UK government would oppose any takeover of BP says FT

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 00.19.50UK government would oppose any takeover of BP -FT

(Reuters) – Britain’s outgoing government has told BP Plc that it wants the company to remain a British industrial champion and it would oppose any takeover of the oil producer, the Financial Times reported.

The message follows the $70 billion deal to acquire rival producer BG by oil major Royal Dutch Shell, which has sparked speculation of a larger wave of consolidation similar to the one at the end of 1990s during another oil price decline.

British officials have said the government would be “sceptical” about any takeover – even if it involves Royal Dutch Shell – because it wants the country to have two big global oil companies, the FT reported. (on.ft.com/1bu3XqD) read more

Earnings slide at BP and Royal Dutch Shell as oil giants slash spending

By LAURA CHESTERS FOR THE DAILY MAIL: 27 April 2015

Crude oil prices hit a 2015 high this month but it is not enough to prevent disastrous first quarter results from BP and Royal Dutch Shell this week.

The price of oil is still well below last summer’s highs of $115 a barrel at around $65 and BP and Shell will be forced into further cuts and sell-offs, experts have warned.

The two British oil giants have already cut spending for this year by up to 15 per cent.

BP is expected to reveal a 60 per cent drop in first quarter operating profit to £1.4billion, according to Société Générale. read more

Campaign to blacklist fossil fuel investments

Screen Shot 2015-04-26 at 18.47.58

According to an article published by The Financial Times on 26 April 2015:

“The Prince of Wales is the most prominent name to emerge from a Financial Times’ survey of British individuals and institutions that are shunning coal, oil and gas company holdings.”

The FT article – PRINCE CHARLES SHUNS FOSSIL FUEL INVESTMENTS – lists some of the internationally famous institutions, foundations, charitable trusts and eminent individuals, including Prince Charles, who, because of climate change, have turned against investing in fossil fuel companies such as Shell. 

The article suggests that the escalating movement against fossil fuel companies is comparable to the global campaigns against apartheid in South Africa (in which Shell was a prime target after propping up the apartheid regime) and the tobacco companies.  read more

Shell to suffer profits plunge on oil price collapse

Shell to suffer profits plunge on oil price collapse

Dutch earthquake fears also trim gas production

Shell is expected to reveal this week that the collapse in the price of oil has wiped off two thirds of its first quarter profits.

The giant has been hit hard by the economic and geopolitical forces set against the price of oil, which at $65 per barrel costs little more than half as much as it did last summer, in spite of recent gains.

Analysts at JP Morgan said Shell is expected to report profits of £1.6bn, adjusted for one-off charges, compared with £4.8bn for the first three months of last year, when Brent crude was comfortably above $100 per barrel. read more

Meanwhile, BP could also be put on the spot about its commitment to being more open about its impact on climate change, after 98% of shareholders at its recent annual meeting called for more transparency. The company agreed to publish more information, but stepped back from providing targets to curb its own greenhouse gas output.
