Please, everybody, take the time to report this company to the communications ombudsman(I am) They are an utter shambles. I’ve tried contacting them for over 3 weeks now without success. I’m not bothering with them anymore. Leave and go somewhere else. Any other provider has to be better than this shower.

Shell to review £25bn investment in UK projects after windfall tax extended

The oil giant’s UK chairman tells Sky News the company knows it has to play its part but it wants to know when the levy will be withdrawn.

Business correspondent 

Shell will review £25bn of investments in British projects after the chancellor extended the windfall tax on energy companies, its UK chairman has told Sky News.

David Bunch said the oil giant would re-examine each of its projects on a “case-by-case basis” after Jeremy Hunt increased the levy on “excess” oil and gas profits from 25% to 35% in last week’s autumn statement. read more

Levies will force oil giant to ‘rerun the economics’ on future projects, says UK chairman

By Matt Oliver and Szu Ping Chan: 21 November 2022 • 7:03pm

Shell is reviewing plans to invest £25bn in Britain’s energy system after Jeremy Hunt raided the industry for £55bn in windfall taxes.

David Bunch, Shell’s UK chairman, said the expanded levy announced in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement is forcing the company to re-examine a slew of projects in the pipeline, from North Sea investments to renewable energy schemes. read more

MONACA, Pa. (AP) — Years in the works, a massive petrochemical refinery in western Pennsylvania fed by the vast natural gas reservoir underneath Appalachia became fully operational Tuesday, oil and gas giant Shell plc said.

The refinery, built on the site of a former zinc smelter along the Ohio River some 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of Pittsburgh, will produce 3.5 billion pounds (1.6 billion kilograms) of polyethylene annually when it ramps up to full production by the second half of 2023, Shell said. read more

Oil And Gas Giant Shell Signs Two-Year Sponsorship With Bitcoin Magazine

Written by  for Bitcoin Magazine

Shell (NYSE: SHEL), one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, has signed a two-year partnership with Bitcoin Magazine to sponsor the 2023 and 2024 Bitcoin Conferences.

Representatives from Shell will speak on the mining stage about improving the energy costs of bitcoin mining using the company’s own lubricant and cooling solutions.

Shell announced last August that it would be expanding into immersion cooling solutions to fuel its data centers. In the release, Shell explained that data centers, such as those used to mine bitcoin, account for 1% of global energy consumption, of which one-third of that comes from cooling solutions. read more

Where to start, after having no internet for a week I eventually managed to speak to Shell Energy broadband. On hold for over 40 minutes until I spoke to someone. They advised they would send an engineer out and I would get a text and I had to make sure someone was in between those times or I would be changed £65. My partner has took a day unpaid from work to sit in for an 8-1 appointment only for nobody to turn up, no text to say why, no call. Another 40 minute phonecall later and we have been told their “latest update” is that it could be anytime today or tomorrow. We werent told this until we rang. The customer service is shocking, the service is even worse and I will be leaving as soon as my contract is up. AVOID SHELL ENERGY BROADBAND AT ALL COSTS. read more

Widows of executed Nigerian activists end case against Shell

Widows of executed Nigerian activists end case against Shell

By Mike Corder | AP: November 8, 2022 at 5:49 a.m. EST

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The widows of four Nigerian activists executed in 1995 have withdrawn their appeal in a Dutch civil case in which they alleged that oil giant Shell was complicit in the men’s deaths, ending a yearslong legal battle for compensation and an apology.

The four widows, Esther Kiobel, Victoria Bera, Blessing Eawo and Charity Levula, launched the case in 2017. It was rejected in a final ruling by The Hague District Court in March, following an interim decision in 2019 dismissing parts of their claim.

Their husbands were among nine activists from the Ogoni tribe, led by writer Ken Saro-Wiwa, who were hanged in 1995 for the murder of four political rivals. Supporters say they were really targeted because of their involvement in protests against environmental damage by Shell’s Nigerian subsidiary. read more

Shell CEO Confident on Long-Term LNG Demand

Shell CEO Confident on Long-Term LNG Demand

Shell Plc remains confident on the long-term outlook for LNG demand, especially in Europe, despite recent supply constraints, the company’s CEO Ben van Beurden and CFO Sinead Gorman concurred during a virtual webcast with various media outlets.

Shell’s LNG trading and optimization was “impacted by a combination of seasonality and supply constraints, where the business is geared towards supplying the northern hemisphere during the winter,” the company revealed in its third-quarter results.

Van Beurden continues to see LNG as a long-term growth segment with typical growth of 4% per annum and thinks the figure could be higher given higher energy consumption in Europe. In parallel with higher energy demand, the company has boosted its positioning in LNG in projects in Qatar from the North Field South and North Field East developments to Mexico, the executive said. read more

Shell’s Flagship LNG Trading Division Made Big Loss In Q3

Shell’s Flagship LNG Trading Division Made Big Loss In Q3

  • Reuters: Shell’s giant LNG trading division made $1 billion loss in Q3.

  • Gas trading divisions by Shell’s peers performed much better.

  • Nevertheless, Shell was still able to post its largest quarterly profit at $9.45B from $4.13B during last year’s corresponding period.

Shell Plc’s (NYSE: SHEL) flagship LNG trading division reported a loss of nearly $1B, sources have revealed to Reuters. The loss is attributed to serious whiplash after the company’s LNG traders were caught flat-footed by the surge in natural gas prices following Russia’s gas supply cuts to Europe. The latest revelation is, however, hardly surprising given that Shell has issued a weak update issued earlier in October. read more

All around the world, the pressure on $318 billion oil and gas giant Shell is mounting. In the Netherlands, the company was forced to remove ads promoting “carbon-neutral” petrol after they were found to be misleading by the Netherlands’ Advertising Code Committee. In the US, a House of Representatives committee heard Shell had touted its climate goals and vision but internal emails painted a different picture. read more

By Ron Bousso, Marwa Rashad and Dmitry Zhdannikov

LONDON (Reuters) – Shell’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) trading division recorded a loss of nearly $1 billion in the third quarter of the year, three industry sources told Reuters, after traders were caught out by a sharp rally in European gas prices when Russia halted supplies.

Shell, the world’s top LNG trader, last week reported its second largest quarterly profit of $9.45 billion, but said it was impacted by weaker gas trading results.

While ordinary Brits struggle BP and Shell shareholders celebrate Putin-war pay-day

Today BP announced it had made £7.1bn in profit over the last three months. Tagged onto their profit figures was the announcement that the oil giant would initiate a new round of share buybacks totalling $2.5 billion.

By DR GEORGE DIBB

Share buybacks, which involve a company repurchasing its own stock to artificially boost its overall share price, were illegal in the UK until 1981 because they were considered a form of market manipulation. Last week, Shell also announced it would spend nearly half of its $9.5 billion profits on a bumper $4 billion buyback programme for shareholders. At the same time, the oil multinational revealed it hadn’t paid a single penny of the windfall tax in the UK. read more

Wifi works fine for a few days and then gets cut off down to nothing, takes over and hour to speak to somebody from customer service just to be told that you need to restart the router..lol. Very unprofessional to also be told “can you not ask a neighbor to use their wifi?” Because i work from home. First of all we pay to have our own working wifi and secondly who in the right mind even says that to a customer who should be getting what they pay for!!

Shell chief to receive compensation for loss of office

28 Oct 2022

THE outgoing chief executive of oil and gas giant Shell is to receive a year’s salary by way of compensation for loss of office.

Ben van Beurden will receive £1.42 million when he steps down at the end of this year, which is to be paid in six instalments. Shell said outstanding payments will be reduced by 50 per cent if he secures a paid position, excluding non-executive directorships, in that time.

The company also said that Mr van Beurden will continue to receive his base salary until the end June next year. The London-listed Anglo-Dutch energy giant said that a pro-rated annual bonus in relation to performance year 2023 will be determined by Shell’s remuneration committee after June next year.

It said 50% of any bonus awarded will be delivered in shares which are subject to a three-year holding period that remains in force after Mr van Beurden leaves Shell’s service.

Shell said the 2021 and 2022 long term incentive awards will be reduced to reflect the portion of the performance period that has elapsed to June next year. read more

Shell faces energy fury as £31bn bumper profits could pay for 2.1m heat pumps for Britons

In just the third quarter of the year, UK-based energy giant Shell raked in profits of £8.2billion.

By ANTONY ASHKENAZ:

New analysis has found that over the past twelve months, energy giant Shell has generated a staggering £31billion in excess profits. This has prompted fury among critics, as millions of Britons face unprecedented energy bill hikes, crippling inflation and a major cost of living crisis. Today, Shell has announced profits of £8.2billion for the third quarter of this year. The business said it made adjusted earnings of $9.5billion US dollars over the three months down from $11.5billion (£9.9billion) the quarter before. According to Global Witness, which conducted the analysis, this profit earned by the energy giant was in addition to the profits that they would make in a normal year. read more

Shell yet to pay any extra windfall tax, bosses confirm

Oil giants were hit by an extra windfall charge in May this year, but they could get around it by investing more in the UK.

By August Graham: 27 Oct 2022

Oil giant Shell has avoided paying any extra windfall tax despite making record profits so far this year as the business said it was investing heavily in the North Sea.

The company said that it does not expect to pay any extra tax this year due to the Government’s decision in May to put a windfall tax on North Sea oil and gas producers.

Finance boss Sinead Gorman told reporters on Thursday that the company had done enough over recent months to avoid the tax – which allowed companies to get tax relief in exchange for investment.

“Heavy capex (capital expenditure) has meant that we haven’t had extra tax coming through in this quarter yet,” she said.

“I do expect to see that extra tax … to happen quite early in the first quarter of 2023, but we’ll see what plays out with prices as well.” read more

Shell announces commencement of a share buyback programme

Shell plc (the ‘company’) today announces the commencement of a $4 billion share buyback programme covering an aggregate contract term of approximately three months (the ‘programme’). The purpose of the programme is to reduce the issued share capital of the company. All shares repurchased as part of the programme will be cancelled.

Energy giant Shell has already made £31bn in excess profits over past year

Energy giant Shell has already made £31bn in excess profits over past year

Analysis of Shell Q3 profits shows their 12 month windfall profits could pay for 12.5 million UK energy bills

27th October 2022, London – UK-based fossil fuel giant Shell has made £31 billion in excess profits over the past twelve months, while Brits have seen energy bill hikes drive an acute cost of living crisis, according to Global Witness analysis of the company’s third quarter profits reported today.

This is money Shell has made in addition to their “normal,” but already high, profits, and was spurred by high global energy prices. See notes for full methodology. It could pay for:

  • The energy bills of 12.5 million British households, or

  • Almost half of the £68 billion the government needs to help its citizens with high energy bills, or

  • Heat pumps for 2.1 million UK homes, that would protect families from energy price volatility, or

  • The energy bills of everyone on universal credit; plus emergency aid for all 19 million Yemeni’s caught in one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters; plus emergency shelter for all of the victims of Pakistan’s climate crisis caused floods – and still leave £17.1 billion in excess profits for Shell’s shareholders. (2)

These extraordinary windfalls come as Shell announced overall adjusted earnings of $9.5 billion this quarter, a slight drop from its record last quarter, but much higher than the company has averaged in recent years. This at a time when the UK government debates how best to support its citizens through a cost-of-living crisis that could see 3 million more British people – and 30 percentage of all UK children (3) – living in poverty from next year. read more

Energy company Shell reports profits of $9.5bn for Q3 of 2022 but not at record levels seen in first half of year

The London-listed oil and gas company had reported record profits in the first half of the year amid soaring oil and gas prices.

Shell has reported operating profits of $9.5bn (£8.19bn) for the third quarter of this year, lower than that of the three months before but still more than double the same period in 2021. read more

I was a customer of Post Office Homephone and never had an issue with them. Sadly they sold out to Shell and since then things have been difficult! I can’t access my bill using my old account details as I was promised so I can no longer separate personal emails from ‘business’ emails and just recently they put the prices up despite me signing up to a fixed tarrif with Post Office literally a few days before the company transferred me across to Shell. read more

Terrible customer service, the likelihood of speaking to someone in less than an hour is close to zero, not to mention if you do manage to reach through to someone they might hang up on you imediately – extremely frustrating! My broadband has been unreliable and slow since the start of my contract and had to have multiple engineer visits. You have tried charging me for the latest one whereas a fault has indeed been found on the line. Your company is simply trying to steal money from honest people and this is absolutely appalling… One advice – never sign up with Shell Energy, run! read more

Shell set to plough £1.3bn in Qatari natural gas project as it looks to bolster energy security and transition to net zero

Shell is ploughing £1.3bn into a Qatari gas project in a huge boost to supplies. The oil giant will take a 9.4pc stake in North Field South, which will expand Qatar’s liquified natural gas output by 16m tons a year.

Qatar is trying to consolidate its position as the world’s biggest natural gas exporter by ramping up capacity from 77m tons per year to 126m tons per year by 2027.

There has been a surge in demand for natural gas, which is seen as a key pillar of the world’s transition to net zero CO2 emissions. Shell boss Ben Van Beurden said its investment in the gas field, run by stateowned QatarEnergy, will help bolster energy security and the transition to net zero. read more

Malabu Oil Scandal: International Organisations File Appeal At The Hague, Demand Fresh Probe Of Shell

Malabu Oil Scandal: International Organisations File Appeal At The Hague, Demand Fresh Probe Of Shell Company, Managers

October 24, 2022

Three non-governmental organisations, Re:Common (Italy), HEDA Resource Centre (Nigeria) and Corner House (UK) on Monday announced that they had filed a complaint at the Court of Appeal in The Hague challenging the decision by the Dutch Prosecutors Office to drop its investigation of Shell and Shell management relating to alleged corruption in Nigeria.

The Complaint was filed by the Dutch law firm Prakken pursuant to Article 12 of the Dutch Code for Criminal Procedure.

Article 12 permits interested parties to challenge prosecutorial decisions not to investigate or prosecute an alleged crime.

In 2017, the three NGOs sought an investigation by the Dutch Prosecutors Office into Shell’s involvement in the 2011 acquisition of the exploitation rights to the Nigerian oil block OPL245. They have since submitted further concerns relating to Shell’s divestments of oil mining licences in the Niger Delta.

Separately, Shell also reported a senior manager to the Dutch Prosecutors Office for bribery relating to one of the oil field divestments. read more

Shell could start profit slowdown as Labour pushes to expand windfall tax

: MONDAY 24 OCTOBER 2022 4:13 PM

The historic profit run from oil and gas titans is expected to slow down this week, when Shell unveils its latest results.

Producers are grappling with both inflation and suppressed demand amid growing expectations of a global recession.

Shell has warned ahead of its third quarter update this week that earnings will likely be dented by a sharp hike in refining costs and weaker natural gas trading.

In an update earlier this month, it revealed indicative refining margins dropped to $15 a barrel compared with $28 a barrel in the previous three months of trading.

The energy giant will update investors on its performance this Thursday, the first in a wave of results from oil and gas giants over the coming days.

Rivals BP, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, Equinor and Saudi Aramco will also announce their results over the coming days – offering markets a flurry of data on the latest conditions in the fossil fuel sector. read more

Shell Loses Dutch Appeal Over Misleading Carbon Emission Ads

(Bloomberg) — Shell Plc lost its appeal against the Dutch advertising watchdog’s ruling that an ad campaign that promoted carbon-dioxide emission credits was misleading and must be withdrawn.

Bloomberg News: Diederik Baazil and Cagan Koc: 21 Oct 2022

(Bloomberg) — Shell’s advertisements offer customers the option to pay extra for their fuel, with the money going to buy credits in emission-reduction projects that “compensate” for the pollution generated. The ads are a reboot of a similar campaign last year that the regulator also deemed misleading. read more

Shell, Exxon launch joint sale of UK, Dutch North Sea assets -sources

Ron Bousso: Tue, September 27, 2022 at 4:16 PM

LONDON, Sept 27 (Reuters) – Shell and Exxon Mobil have launched a joint sale process of a large package of offshore natural gas assets in the southern UK and Dutch North Sea, three industry and banking sources said.

The two companies have hired investment bank Jefferies to run the sale, which could raise over $2 billion, the sources said.

Launched earlier this month, the sale comes after Shell and Exxon independently ran initial sales processes for their British and Dutch assets.

Shell declined to comment. Jefferies declined to comment. Exxon did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

In July, Shell and Exxon launched the sale of the 50-50 NAM joint venture in the Netherlands, operator of the Groningen gas field and one of Europe’s largest and oldest natural gas production companies.

The two companies have also separately put up for sale their stakes in their British southern North Sea gas hub, which include the Clipper Leman Alpha hubs as well as the Bacton terminal in eastern England, the sources said. read more

Dutch limit Groningen gas production despite energy crisis

Dutch limit Groningen gas production despite energy crisis

By Reuters  •  Updated: 26/09/2022 – 16:25

AMSTERDAM -Gas production at the Groningen field in the Netherlands will be lowered to the minimal amount needed to keep wells operational in the coming year, as extraction is expected to end by 2024 at the latest, the Dutch government said on Monday.

Production at Groningen, once one of Europe’s major suppliers of natural gas, will be capped at 2.8 billion cubic metres (bcm) in the year starting Oct. 1, the government said, down from 4.5 bcm in the current year.

The Groningen field, operated by a joint venture of Shell and Exxon Mobil, still holds massive reserves of natural gas.

But extraction has been almost completely wound down in the past 10 years as tremors blamed on drilling damaged buildings and prompted protests by residents and campaigners.

An unusually strong earthquake in 2018 saw the goverment promise a rapid end to all production, which is now expected to take place in the fall of 2023 or by 2024 at the latest. read more
