Large-cap FTSE 100 blue chips like Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) are considered to be relatively safe investments.

Unfortunately, Shell has been trying to go against this belief over the past year. During the past 12 months Shell has taken on three high-risk projects, all of which could cripple the company if they don’t go to plan. 

As a result, investors have turned their backs on the oil giant and Shell’s shares have underperformed the FTSE 100 by a staggering 25% over the past year.  read more

Anglo-Dutch energy major Royal Dutch Shell plans to cut its 2015 capital expenditure, as the company looks to balance its accounts in light of a 50% decline in oil prices since June 2014.

The Financial Times reported that Shell’s CEO Ben van Beurden is expected to outline the cut in capital investment, when the company releases its interim report on 30 July.

The capital spending budget at Shell is expected to be revised lower, “by several billion dollars from the $33bn (£21.1bn, €30.5bn) announced at the end of April, reflecting project deferrals”, the FT reports. read more

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell, which is all set to acquire rival BG Group Plc, may cut its capital expenditure for the year by several billion dollars from the previously announced $33 billion figure, the Financial Times reported on Sunday, citing sources.

A substantial cut to this year’s capital investment might be outlined during the company’s interim results on July 30, the newspaper said.(http://on.ft.com/1fVVwqU).

The paper said the Anglo-Dutch energy company had also told investors that the BG deal works with crude oil at $70 per barrel, citing much greater synergies which will likely exceed several billions, the business daily said. read more

Shell came under criticism at a meeting in Unalaska last week from an unlikely pair, a representative of Greenpeace concerned about global environmental impacts and city official — and pro-developoment booster — Frank Kelty, complaining about local impacts brought by the influx of oil company workers filling up the hotel and displacing birders and other tourists.

“Shell’s taking over the whole place,” said Kelty, referring to the Grand Aleutian Hotel, and citing other impacts. Local residents are having to wait for deliveries from the United Parcel Service, because airplanes are filled up with Shell packages, said Kelty. read more

A dynamic event is underway in Arctic Alaska today: one that, if successful, could have a profound effect on our state’s economy. Shell Alaska is preparing to drill for oil this summer in Alaska’s offshore continental shelf. To date, Shell has expended over $7 billion in gearing up for their effort. They anticipate substantially advancing their delineation effort by the end of this year’s drilling season.

A sobering statistic highlights the significance of Shell’s effort: Of the total estimated oil in Alaska, 43.8 billion barrels, 88.9 percent is on federal holdings, and only 11.1 percent is on state-owned lands. In comparison, the rest of the U.S. oil totals 23.7 bb. according to USGS estimates. Alaska must be allowed to access its federal prospects. read more
