Bidness Etc takes a look at challenge facing Shell as it incorporates BG Group in its fold

Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE: RDS.A) $70 billion acquisition of BG Group plc (ADR) (OTCMKTS: BRGYY) is a first of such magnitude for the Hague-based oil company. The energy company did not become part of the wave of merger activity that swept the energy industry, post-1998, after oil prices crashed.

Some of the big merger deals included the Total SA (NYSE:TOT) acquisition of Elf, Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) merger with Texaco, BP plc (NYSE: BP) purchase of Amoco and Exxon’s acquisition of Mobil from Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM). Royal Dutch Shell’s competitors have had the experience of mega mergers, and they know from experience what the company goes through during and after the integration process. read more

UK warns off BP suitors now Shell unavailable as ‘white knight’

(Reuters) – Britain’s warning to potential suitors of BP is a sign of the oil major’s vulnerability to a takeover bid and that a more politically palatable tie-up with Royal Dutch Shell no longer seems to be an option, banking and industry sources said.

Despite championing a laissez-faire policy towards takeover deals, Britain has always had a special interest in BP, dating back to the creation of the company via an unusual government investment master-minded by Winston Churchill. read more

2015 is a big year for climate in Europe: the UN talks in Paris, this December; the implementation of the EU’s 2030 climate targets; mapping out the Energy Union.
Judging by the European Commission’s public statements, one would think the EU was firmly on its way to transforming our energy system towards efficient and renewable energy.

But in reality, its recently-established advisory group for the evaluation of shale gas development is opening the back door to this harmful and polluting technology across Europe, despite massive public opposition. read more

UK government could step in to stop a BP takeover as rumours swirl off possible US interest in wake of Shell deal for BG Group

UK government could step in to stop a BP takeover as rumours swirl off possible US interest in wake of Shell deal for BG Group

By LAURA CHESTERS FOR THE DAILY MAIL: 27 APRIL 2015

The British government could step in to protect oil giant BP from any potential takeover amid rumours US groups ExxonMobil and Chevron could be interested in the firm.

BP became the target of takeover rumours following Royal Dutch Shell’s £47billion move to buy blue chip rival BG Group earlier this month.

The deal sparked speculation that a wave of other takeover deals would come for the sector following the tumbling oil price – which is down around 50 per cent since last summer – and the weak share prices of oil companies. read more

PRESS: Shell Lobbied EU To Favour Gas Over Renewables – The Guardian

LONDON (Alliance News) – Royal Dutch Shell PLC successfully lobbied to undermine European renewable energy targets, in favour of the expanded use of gas, ahead of a key agreement on emissions cuts reached in October last year, according to newly released documents obtained by The Guardian newspaper.

Citing documents it received under the Freedom of Information Act, the newspaper said Shell began lobbying the then European Commission president, Jose Manuel Barroso, since 2011 to scrap the European Union’s formula for linking carbon-cutting goals with binding renewable energy laws. read more
