The Dutch King and Queen will head to the racetrack on day two of their Perth visit.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima will meet with trainers, owners and jockeys in the mounting yard, walk through the crowd and grandstand before watching the Melbourne Cup.

Fashion aficionados will be keen to see what the glamorous Argentinian-born Queen Maxima wears, given she is known for her chic sense of style.

On Monday, she stood out in a beige and green dress by Dutch designer Mattijs van Bergen with a matching fascinator, gloves and jewel-encrusted necklace. read more

DUBAI, Oct 31 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell and trading house Vitol are stepping up their operations in the port of Fujairah to store Iraqi crude as production from the OPEC member rises, industry sources said.

Iraq is OPEC’s second largest producer after Saudi Arabia and its output has almost doubled since the start of the decade at 4.7 million barrels per day (bpd).

With a target of 5.5-6 million bpd by 2020, Iraq wants to be exempt from the cartel’s bid to boost oil prices with production cuts to reduce a global surplus. read more

Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) expects to take part in the next bidding round for exploration licences offshore Norway, after dropping out of the latest one, the head of its Norwegian unit said on Monday.

The oil major pulled its application from Norway’s 23rd Arctic-focused oil licensing round in April, saying it needed to take a break to assess its exploration plans after the acquisition of BG, and due to low oil prices.

“We are looking forward to the 24th round in order to increase our activity on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS),” Tor Arnesen, the head of Shell’s Norwegian unit, told an oil conference in northern Norway. read more

Can Royal Dutch Shell plc Regain Its Mojo?

screen-shot-2016-10-31-at-19-00-26By Reuben Gregg BrewerOct 31, 2016

Royal Dutch Shell plc (NYSE:RDS-B) is one of a small and elite group of energy giants, competing with companies such as Chevron (NYSE:CVX) and ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM). While this group is often, and correctly, thought of collectively as oil companies, Shell is pushing hard in a slightly different direction. So if you, as an investor, are wondering if Royal Dutch Shell can regain its mojo, you need to frame the answer in a slightly different way than you might have just a couple of years ago. read more

Third Quarter Results: Tuesday, November 1

Confidence in enlarged Shell-BG entity was rattled after a very disappointing set of second quarter results, when it missed consensus forecasts by 52pc. Ahead of Tuesday’s interim results, analysts at UBS warned: “We don’t think it is reasonable to expect a significant uptick in earnings”.

Even though Royal Dutch Shell has a track-record of “volatile” quarters across the year, the bank highlighted that management have already been “quite explicit” in indicating that 2016 is likely to be “quite messy”. read more
