Death of 193 Dutch Strains Russian Relations for Shell, Heineken

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29

At one point the largest foreign investor in Russia, Shell declined to comment on whether its business would be affected after the downing of the plane. The company lost four employees in the incident, it said yesterday.

BloombergBusinessweek article by Celeste Perri, Maud van Gaal and Fred Pals published 22 July 2014

For centuries, the fortunes of the Netherlands, the wind-swept country carved out of North Sea wetlands, have relied on preserving the peace with its global trading partners. Last week’s downing of an airliner carrying 193 Dutch nationals is testing one of its most important relationships, involving companies from Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) to Heineken NV. (HEIA)

The Netherlands was Russia’s third-biggest trading partner last year, data compiled by Bloomberg show. The Dutch, home to the busiest container port in Europe and the region’s biggest energy company, send dairy products, meat and machinery to Russia, which the U.S. says is complicit in the attack. read more

Is Russia’s Hostility Exposing Royal Dutch Shell?

Screen Shot 2014-04-28 at 15.30.36Extracts from a Motley Fool article by Arjun Sreekumar published 17 May 2014

Shell clearly has significant exposure to Russia. The worst-case scenario for the company, as well as for BP and other companies operating in the nation, would be if the U.S. and European Union sanctioned Russia’s energy sector. Such economic penalties would make it problematic for Shell to maintain relations with Gazprom… As I understand it, such a sanction, if imposed, would not impact Shell’s existing projects. However, it would affect new projects and expansion plans, including perhaps the proposed expansion of Sakhalin-2. It could also hamper Shell’s 50/50 joint venture with Gazprom in western Siberia’s Salym fields…  I remain cautious about Shell’s exposure to Russia. read more

Shell Corrib Gas 12 years behind schedule and four times over budget

Extract from an article by Nick Webb published Sunday 02 March 2014 by Independent.ie

Screen Shot 2013-09-24 at 18.48.35THE controversial Corrib gas field is expected to come onstream by “mid 2015.” Gas was originally expected to flow from the Mayo field back in 2003. The project is now likely to be 12 years behind the original schedule. The cost of developing the field could be four times the initial estimate of €800m at over €3bn.

Russian Eco-Regulator Quits to Lead Green Movement

Mr. Mitvol, 42 years old, sprang to global prominence in 2006 when he accused Royal Dutch Shell of a string of environmental failings at its giant Sakhalin II oil and gas project in Russia's Far East. Under pressure from Mr. Mitvol and other Russian officials, Shell, which had a 55% stake in the project, sold control to state-controlled OAO Gazprom. Shell now owns a 27.5% stake in the project.

The Big Gas Troika: A Lot of Hot Air

This article was originally published in the December 2008 issue of the IAGS Journal of Energy Security

SUNDAY, 14 DECEMBER 2008 00:00 WARREN WILCZEWSKI

Russia’s efforts to create within the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) a more focused “Big Gas Troika” composed of Iran, Qatar, and Russia have been identified as a serious threat to European, and global energy security. Following an October 21st, 2008 meeting in Tehran between representatives of the three countries, a Gazprom press release suggested this producer’s group (also referred to as a “Gas G3”) could be expanded, and include other GECF countries in what Alexei Miller calls an “Energy Pole.” Parallels with OPEC, which at its inception also functioned as a consultative body, are clear; the proposed organization bears the hallmarks of a nascent cartel – an Organization of Gas Exporting Countries (OGEC), with Russia in the driver’s seat. In the short term, prospects of such a cartel have remained a marginal concern for EU Energy Commissioner Andris Pielbags, who finds Norway’s categorical opposition to membership in such an organization reassuring. A recent IEA report, however, suggests such a cartel may indeed emerge within ten years, further empowering its members in their dealings with major gas importing countries.   

Motivations behind the recent flurry of activity vary. With crude (and thus prices of gas exports linked to it) currently below Russia’s $70 budget break-even point, the Kremlin needs a catalyst to bring prices up again. In this sense the aftermath of the Georgia conflict must have been a disappointment. Despite reports of Russian bombs landing just meters away from the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, energy prices continued dropping throughout August. Simultaneous saber-rattling rhetoric from Tehran, and suggestions by Revolutionary Guard General Mohammad Ali Jafari of a possible strike on US forces in the Strait of Hormuz, also failed to slow this downward slide. As prices continued to fall into September Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin, attending OPEC’s Vienna meeting as an observer, suggested closer cooperation with the oil cartel, and proposed holding a meeting of the group in Moscow. After even this move failed to halt the decline in oil prices, to which most of Russia’s gas supply contracts are linked, a new approach was required. read more

Shell’s new chief executive needs to deliver the jam tomorrow

Shell's traditional rival BP is a safer short-term bet. Its production growth will be faster in the short term, and the projects offer higher margins. It is also spending less to deliver that growth. This gives investors greater comfort that falling oil prices won't endanger its dividend, and might explain why BP shares have outperformed Shell's by 7pc in since the beginning of September.

Shell’s hilarious attempt to beef up email security

By John Donovan

7 October 2008

The new security monitoring systems are thought to be an attempt to stem the flow of leaked emails to what Reuters has described as the “unofficial” Shell website, royaldutchshellplc.com read more

Shell’s input into the Sakhalin environmental audit is questioned

US-based Pacific Environment, an environmental group that focuses on the Pacific rim, says Royal Dutch Shell influenced a supposedly independent environmental audit to determine whether its controversial Sakhalin II energy project would get finance. Campaigners say dozens of emails released by the UK government under the Freedom of Information Act show Shell officials in London attempted to downplay criticisms of the environmental impact of the $22bn oil and gas project off the east coast of Russia. Shell says its input into draft reports of this kind “is routine and designed to ensure accuracy”, but did not affect the findings in this case.  AEA Technology, which conducted and then published the audit in November 2007, says that although Shell and various banks made suggestions on the draft, it was under no pressure to accept them. It maintains the audit was an accurate, balanced and independent view of the project. Campaigners such as WWF are concerned about the effect continuous drilling at Sakhalin II, which has now received finance, will have on the endangered western grey whale.

Energy giant accused of leaning on authors of independent environmental report to help secure financial backing for controversial oil and gas extraction project

Royal Dutch Shell is facing allegations that it was heavy handed in influencing a supposedly independent environmental report on one of the world’s largest oil and gas extraction projects.

A report in The Observer yesterday cited email evidence that allegedly shows Shell looked to downplay some of the environmental criticism included in the review of the $22bn Sakhalin II Project in Russia – which has now received the bulk of the funding it required for work on the project to begin. read more

Cook to break the mould at Shell

Cook joined the Shell board in 2004 in the aftermath of the embarrassing reserves scandal that cost chairman Sir Phil Watts and finance director Judy Boynton their jobs. She was devastated by the shake-up, having liked and respected Watts, but she refused to be deflected by the upheaval, choosing instead to get on with the job.

Shell: time to deliver

GOOD things come to those who wait. No pain, no gain. Every cloud has a silver lining. For investors in Royal Dutch Shell in need of a pep talk, these might be clichés worth repeating.

There is a chance – however remote – that growth might come inorganically, says ABN Amro, describing a merger with BP or Total as "possible and desirable"

From Russia With Contempt

The truth is that the rule of law in Russia was mocked, not strengthened, under Vladimir Putin, and it remains a sham. It offered no more protection for Shell (squeezed out of the Sakhalin-2 gas project after being threatened with a $30 billion environmental lawsuit) or Yukos (dismantled by the Tax Ministry and sold off to Kremlin allies) than it does now for BP or 140 million ordinary Russians.

Allegations in Russia Could Hurt BP Venture

A year earlier, Royal Dutch Shell was pressured to sell a controlling stake in the world’s largest oil and natural gas development, Sakhalin-2, to Gazprom. In that case, the government cited environmental damage in a pipeline project.

Kazakh superfield delayed yet again

Of the 15 former Soviet republics, Kazakhstan is sitting on the sole "superfield" discovered in the last three decades. With proven reserves of 35 billion barrels, Kazakhstan potentially contains the world's third largest reserves of oil, after Saudi Arabia and Iraq.

Mr No-nonsense leads at Regal (An example of spin by the Financial Times)

David Greer knows about bad publicity. As deputy chief executive of Royal Dutch Shell's Sakhalin arm, running the Sakhalin-2 project off the far-east coast of Russia, he suffered the indignity of having an internal memo, which was designed to motivate his managers - "lead me, follow me, or get out of my way" - leaked to the Financial Times last year.
