Shell is Wrong: Global Oil Demand Can Only Increase

By Jude Clemente: Rigzone Contributor Wed, Nov 21, 2018 Bolstered by the U.S. shale revolution, global oil production has surged by over 20 percent in the past 15 years. The great rise has put to bed the “peak oil production” theory but it has not stopped the apparent new concern of “peak oil demand,” now portrayed as perhaps the main threat to the future of the world’s oil industry. In fact, it’s hardly just anti-oil environmental groups; many of the major producers themselves (Royal Dutch Shell plc in particular) assert that global oil consumption will soon peak and thereafter begin its terminal decline. The basis of this belief is the growth of electric vehicle sales and the need to reduce oil use to combat climate change.

Yet for oil, what’s past is prologue: even with higher prices, both the Energy Information Administration (EIA) and International Energy Agency (IEA) modeling have repeatedly forecast more demand for as far as the eye can see. After all, oil is the world’s most important fuel, supplying 35 percent of all energy used. While the link between economic growth and oil use can be viewed from a variety of perspectives, the two clearly progress in tandem – a long studied link demonstrated in regression modeling and peer-reviewed studies. read more

LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDSa.AS) female employees in Britain earned on average 18.6 percent less than their male colleagues in 2018, the company said in a report on Wednesday, narrowing the gender pay gap from 2017’s 22.2 percent.

The difference in earnings between men and women has provoked significant anger among many women in recent years and sparked a public debate in Britain over why pay is still so different for men and women.

“We are confident that we pay men and women equally for work of equal value,” the Anglo-Dutch company said in a statement. read more

Shell exit from Greater Sunrise paves way for Chinese

East Timor has bought Shell’s stake in the Greater Sunrise project, giving it a majority share and putting more impetus behind the project’s development

By Damon Evans 21 November 2018

East Timor’s decision to buy out Shell’s stake in the Greater Sunrise fields has revived momentum in the project, which will require billions of dollars of investment, and paves the way for Chinese participation.

Dili agreed on Tuesday to pay $300 million for Shell’s 26.56% stake in the fields, which straddle the Australian and Timorese sea beds. The move follows a recent agreement to buy out ConocoPhillips’ share of the fields.

The Greater Sunrise project was considered to be politically stranded and of negligible… read more
