Does the Shell/BG Group Deal Make Sense With Oil at These Levels?

Screen Shot 2016-01-25 at 21.08.04

On April 8, 2015, Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-B) announced the terms of an agreement to buy BG Group for 383 pence in cash (or $5.51 per share) and 0.4454 Shell B Shares. If shareholders of both companies approve the deal when they vote on Jan. 28 and 29, the combined company will become the largest publicly traded LNG producers in the world, with more than double the reserves of ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM). And it would catapult Shell into becoming the world’s second-largest non-state oil company in the world from a market cap perspective, ahead of Chevron (NYSE:CVX).  read more

The share prices of these giants could halve… My investment advice for both companies is unequivocal. STEER. WELL. CLEAR.

By Prabhat Sakya – Monday, 25 January, 2016

Isn’t it interesting how, whenever there’s any news, we tend to jump on the negative side rather than the positive? As a commuter, I drive many thousands of miles every year. That’s why it’s great for me that the oil price is falling. And alongside the hundreds of pounds I’m saving on my daily commute, I’ll save a pretty penny on my heating bills over the next few years. Cheap fuel allows the global economy to run more cheaply, and that benefits consumers around the world. read more

Oil prices tumbled again on Monday, eroding last week’s gains, as Opec called for co-operation from oil-producing nations outside the cartel.

Brent crude fell 4.1% to $30.86 a barrel following a 10% rise on Friday, while US oil shed 4.7% to $30.68.

The slide came as the head of Opec called for all oil-producing nations to work together.

Abdullah al-Badri said both Opec and non-Opec oil producers needed to tackle oversupply to help prices rise.

“It is vital the market addresses the issue of the stock overhang. As you can see from previous cycles, once this overhang starts falling then prices start to rise,” he told a conference in London. read more

LONDON Jan 25 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell said on Monday that is had re-opened a key oil pipeline in Nigeria that had been shut since late November.

The Trans Niger Pipeline, or TNP, which carries Bonny Light crude oil to the export terminal had re-opened “in recent days,” a Shell spokeswoman said by email.

The pipeline remained closed while the company investigated an incident on Nov. 22 in which four contractors died during an operation to remove crude oil theft points.

The closure of the pipeline had led to loading delays of up to 10 days, according to traders. read more

Shell’s BG Arbitrage Fades as Investors Look Set to Back Deal

Royal Dutch Shell Plc is on the brink of completing its biggest acquisition as shareholders look set to back its purchase of BG Group Plc.

Risks to the deal completing have almost disappeared. The discount of BG’s shares to the offer price narrowed to a record low of 2.2 percent on Monday after some of Shell’s top shareholders and advisory firms backed the transaction this month. It was at 12.5 percent on Dec. 21.

Shell’s acquisition, the industry’s biggest in at least a decade, came under scrutiny after oil prices fell by half from about $60 a barrel the day before it was announced in April. The slump, which Shell Chief Executive Officer Ben Van Beurden expects to be prolonged, previously kept BG’s discount to the offer from narrowing as some investors questioned whether Europe’s biggest oil company was paying too much. That’s changing as shareholders come round to Shell’s view on the long-term rationale of the purchase. read more

Shareholder green light expected for Shell BG merger

Screen Shot 2016-01-25 at 09.10.00

MARTIN FLANAGAN: Monday 25 January 2016

Major investors are expected to back Shell’s troubled £36 billion takeover of rival BG Group this week despite reservations that the plunging oil price has made the deal less attractive than when first unveiled last year.

David Cumming, head of equities at Edinburgh-based Standard Life Investments, has been one of the most high-profile opponents of the merger, calling it “value destructive for Shell shareholders”.

Some other institutional investors also have concerns about the terms of the deal in the current depressed climate for the oil industry, and it is thought the Shell shareholder vote on Wednesday and BG vote on Thursday could be close. read more

The Nigerian government is set to retrieve one of Africa’s richest oil blocs from oil giants, Shell and Eni, PREMIUM TIMES has learnt.

Not only will the two oil giants lose OPL 245, should President Muhammadu Buhari approve the recommendations, they will also be fined billions of dollars for illegal activities, including paying money to fraudulent public officials and private citizens in order to secure the bloc.

The retrieval of the controversial oil bloc, estimated to contain about 9 billion barrels of crude, as well as placing heavy fines on the oil giants, is contained in a far-reaching recommendation by the office of the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, Mohammed Diri. read more
