Summary

  • This article is a follow-up to my prior article addressing the company’s dividend concerns.
  • History won’t always repeat itself, so I felt I would talk about what the company is doing in detail and expand on my thoughts.
  • I am betting history continues.

As you know, Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A) (NYSE:RDS.B) has been crushed in the last three months, and of course, over the last year since oil began its sell-off. At the time of this writing, oil is hovering around $40 and oil stocks have come off of their lows from last week. However, it could get worse before it gets better. Last week I wrote an article that addressed the Royal Dutch Shell dividend concerns. It was a highly controversial article, to tell you the truth. But it is important. The stock has a 7.5% yield right now. It did NOT raise its dividend to get here. It is not a red flag dividend. It is a result of rampant selling in the oil sector. read more

MELBOURNE, Australia–Australia’s antitrust regulator has given itself more time to consider Royal Dutch Shell PLC’s planned takeover of U.K.-based oil-and-gas firm BG Group PLC.

Royal Dutch Shell Group will have to wait a bit longer for Australian regulatory clearance of its proposed $US70 billion ($99.4 billion) takeover of BG Group after the national competition authority delayed its decision on the deal.

The decision, which was due on Thursday, has been deferred for two weeks “to allow additional time to consider the proposed acquisition,” the ACCC said on its website.

The deferral, until September 17, signals that clearance of the deal, which will further concentration ownership of gas resources in Queensland, is far from straightforward. Some gas buyers on the east coast are known to have serious concerns that the combination of Shell’s and BG’s gas resources in Queensland will further limit availability of domestic gas supplies in a market where most gas is set to be shipped offshore from the new LNG projects in Gladstone, one of which is owned by BG. read more

A lot has been said by many people about Shell’s Arctic drilling program but I have yet to see a real analysis of what it would mean for Alaska and our people.

Some have said: “Well, it is in federal waters so we won’t get anything out of it.” I just don’t believe that is true. Here are some of the direct benefits we will receive if Shell is successful in their endeavors.

The current throughput of the trans-Alaska oil pipeline is about 400,000 barrels a day and declining by about 5 percent a year. It has been estimated that below 200,000 barrels a day the pipeline will not be able to operate. A study by the Idaho National Energy Lab estimates that if this were to occur, we would strand at least 1 billion barrels of oil on the North Slope. read more
