Shell risks dividend payments with quick switch to renewables

Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 19.31.05Written by Reporter – 26/05/2016 6:00 am

Oil major Shell cannot switch too quickly to producing renewable energy without risking its dividend payments according to its chief executive.

More than 97% of Shell shareholders agreed at its annual meeting earlier this month to reject a resolution to invest profits from fossil fuels to become a renewable energy company.

The firm had previously said it was against the proposal.

Shell’s climate change policy has been criticised in recent months including by Dutch pension fund PGGM. read more

Paul Goodfellow, Shell’s Vice President for UK & Ireland, has said that despite the “tough message” he had to deliver yesterday to staff in Aberdeen, he saw green shoots of sustainable change emerging in the North Sea.

The 475 North Sea job cuts – part of a wider round of 2,200 across Shell’s global operations – comes after a 90 day review since Shell’s £36million mega-merger with BG Group earlier in the year.

He said this most recent round of job losses was not just in response to “lower for longer” – the common industry view that oil will stay around $50 for the forseeable future – but “lower forever”. read more

‘Difficult time’ for oil workers as Shell workforce is slashed

Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 09.45.09

By GREG CHRISTISONPUBLISHED: 22:22, Wed, May 25, 2016 

The move, announced yesterday, is a result of the firm’s £35billion merger with the BG Group and the prolonged slump in oil prices. 

A total of 475 positions will be lost from the company’s UK and Ireland upstream business, which deals primarily with exploration, by the end of the year. 

All job losses are expected to affect Scotland – home to around 2,200 Shell employees – with most coming from the firm’s Aberdeen headquarters. Around 40 offshore posts will be cut and there will also be losses at St Fergus Gas Terminal, in Aberdeenshire, and the firm’s plant at Mossmorran, in Fife. read more

SCOTLAND’S oil and gas sector is reeling from yet another hammer blow after Shell announced plans to slash its UK workforce by a fifth.

The oil giant said it will cut 475 people from its UK and Ireland business. All the jobs are understood to be based in Aberdeen and the north-east.

Shell announced it will lose 2,200 jobs from its workforce globally as it grapples with lower oil prices, meaning 12,500 staff and contractor roles will be lost between the start of 2015 and the end of this year. read more

Rex Tillerson, the boss of oil giant ExxonMobil, said cutting oil production was “not acceptable for humanity” as he fought off shareholders’ and activists’ attempts to force the company to fully acknowledge the impact of climate change on the environment and Exxon’s future profits.

During a long and fractious annual meeting in Dallas on Wednesday, Tillerson, who serves as Exxon’s chairman and chief executive, beat back several proposals to force the company to take more action on climate change. read more
