Shell’s bid to acquire BG Group has been given a boost by news from Brazil that a much feared tax hike will be avoided.

Fears of a larger tax bill on oil groups operating in Brazil had caused some investors to oppose the £36billion takeover of BG, which will create a group with major assets in the South American country.

Brazil’s National Energy Policy Council will this week announce that it will continue with the same way of calculating royalties due from oil and gas. read more

BG investors should approve the Shell takeover even as the oil price languishes

It is crunch time for investors in BG Group. Last April, it unveiled a recommended £47billion takeover by Royal Dutch Shell. This week, more than nine months later, both firms are asking shareholders to approve the deal.

It has been an eventful gestation period. The oil price has virtually halved and Shell shares have moved in tandem, sliding from 2208p to 1388p.

The slump is important because the Shell offer is a mix of cash and stock – 383p in cash and 0.4454 Shell B shares for every BG share. read more

Screen Shot 2016-01-23 at 20.43.08By Jillian Ambrose, Ben Martin: 7:00PM GMT 23 Jan 2016

A host of the world’s largest investors are expected to back Shell’s troubled multi-billion pound takeover of BG Group this week.

Shell and BG shareholders will vote on Wednesday and Thursday to approve the deal, which has been called into question by the plunge in the oil price. David Cumming, head of equities at Standard Life Investments, has been the most vocal opponent of the takeover, branding it “value destructive for Shell shareholders”. read more

Russians’ Anxiety Swells as Oil Prices Collapse

Screen Shot 2016-01-23 at 09.14.13

By NEIL MacFARQUHARA version of this article appears in print on January 23, 2016, on page A1 of the New York edition

The global collapse in oil prices is reordering economic relations around the world, but the change is particularly daunting for Russia, which relies on energy exports for 50 percent of its federal budget.

In December, President Vladimir V. Putin told the nation that the worst of the recession — the economy shrank 3.9 percent and inflation hit 12.9 percent in 2015 — was over and that modest growth would return in 2016. He has been pushing the oil collapse as an “opportunity” that will wean Russia off energy imports and diversify the economy. read more
