OCTOBER 18, 2018 / 3:03 PM

RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct 18 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell plans to invest $1 billion to $2 billion annually in oil exploration and production in Brazil through 2025, Brazilian newspaper Valor Economico reported on Thursday.

Shell boss hopes Saudi tensions will not hit supply

Shell CEO Ben van Beurden

The head of oil giant Royal Dutch Shell has warned that the crisis over the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi should not be allowed to shake the security of energy supply.

Ben van Beurden told Sky News that he was “glued” to coverage of the case and not just because it “may lead to geopolitical tensions that may affect markets”.

He said disruption to the sector would be “an unhelpful outcome” for all concerned.

Shell, the biggest company by value on London’s FTSE 100 Index, has investments of more than $8bn and 2,000 staff in oil-rich Saudi Arabia. read more

Shell bets on shale for flexibility in energy transition

Head of US business says oil and gas output will act as ‘balance’ for deepwater projects

in New Orleans

Growing oil and gas production from shale fields will act as a “balance” for deepwater projects, the new head of Royal Dutch Shell’s US business said, as the energy major strives for flexibility in the transition to cleaner fuels. Gretchen Watkins said drilling far beneath oceans in the US Gulf of Mexico, Brazil and Nigeria secured revenues for the longer-term, but tapping shale reserves in the US, Canada and Argentina enabled nimble decision-making.

Shell’s $31 Billion Gamble On Canadian LNG

Callum Turcan: October 17, 2018

Summary

  • Going over Royal Dutch Shell’s LNG Canada endeavor.
  • The pros and the cons.
  • Why this is ultimately a good idea.

Royal Dutch Shell plc (NYSE:RDS.A) (NYSE:RDS.B) is making another big bet on liquefied natural gas, this time in Canada. On October 1, 2018, Royal Dutch Shell plc and its partners announced a positive investment decision on the ~US$31 billion (~40 billion Canadian dollars) Canada LNG venture. The goal is to bring an LNG export facility online in Kitimat, British Columbia, to take advantage of both its existing infrastructure (deep-water ports, roads, electricity grids) and its easy access to Asian markets. While I am a shareholder of Royal Dutch Shell, that doesn’t mean I want to be a cheerleader for every decision the company makes. Here is what I view as a very reasonable assessment of LNG Canada, highlighting both the pros and cons of this endeavor. Let’s dig in. read more

Shell comments on deepwater vs. shale

Oct. 18, 2018 3:46 AM ETBy: , SA News Editor
