Should you ditch energy giants as the age of oil ends?

Should you ditch energy giants as the age of oil ends? Or try to clean up as they go green?

There has been talk of the demise of oil and gas for decades. But you know that things are getting serious when even the boss of oil giant BP, Bernard Looney, warns that demand for oil may peak in the next few years and then decline.

The so-called energy transition from fossil fuels to renewables is gaining momentum. read more

Allseas Litigation: Top lawyer Mike Stubbs accused of relaying offer of £1m ‘bribe’ to police, say court transcripts

By John Donovan

Shell contractor, Allseas, is a key player in a continuing story of mystery and intrigue surrounding criminal court proceedings.

Shell prepares for major production cuts to refocus on green strategy

Kumutha Ramanathan: Contributor: Yahoo Finance UK

Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB.L) is looking to cut up to 40% off its costs related to producing oil and gas as it focuses on the renewable energy and power markets.

That’s according to a source who spoke exclusively to Reuters.

The project is known internally as Project Reshape and is expected to be completed by the end of this year, said Monday’s report. There will be three main divisions of the business that are impacted by the cuts and they will reportedly be in addition to a $4bn (£3.1bn) target set in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. read more

DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY

DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY! The door to door sales agents will lie to you in order for you to initiate a switch of energy and earn their own commission. A sales advisor told me that my balance would be transferred over to my new supplier during the switch, which is why they required a credit check to be run, while my ongoing energy supply would be cheaper. This was absolutely not the case, my old supplier have debited over £700 from my bank account this morning and Shell energy are unable to offer any help to resolve this at all, I asked to reverse the switch and they have advised this will cost a further £100. I am appalled at the level of misrepresentation and service supplied by the company and I urge anyone considering to switch to avoid them at all costs! I don’t rate British Gas’ service at all but you would be far better off! read more

‘Stranded Assets’ Risk Rising With Climate Action and $40 Oil

‘Stranded Assets’ Risk Rising With Climate Action and $40 Oil

By Laura Hurst | Bloomberg:

September 18, 2020 at 7:55 a.m. GMT+1

What had seemed like an abstract debate about leaving oil, gas and coal in the ground to fight climate change has suddenly become real. Environmental activists have long fought for lower fossil-fuel production. Now, with the pandemic crippling economies and reducing energy use and prices, drillers and miners are coming to grips with projects that are no longer viable. Some companies are even abandoning investments, leaving deposits worth billions of dollars in the ground to languish as so-called “stranded assets.” While environmentalists applaud, fund managers, banks and regulators worry that project financing could sour and collateral become worthless. read more

Shell Offshore files plans to return to Alaska’s North Slope

Shell Offshore files plans to return to Alaska’s North Slope

Author: Elwood Brehmer: Alaska Journal of Commerce

A supermajor oil company is looking to advance its position on Alaska’s North Slope.

Shell Offshore Inc. has applied to form the West Harrison Bay Unit in state waters just offshore from the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska with plans to drill the area in search of oil in the coming years, according to documents submitted to the state Division of Oil and Gas.

If the Dutch oil industry giant can secure a partner to share in the costs and risks of remote offshore North Slope exploration, it expects to drill exploration wells in the West Harrison Bay Unit with at least one sidetrack each in 2023 and 2024, Shell’s initial unit plan of exploration states. read more

Countries Need to Invest $55 Trillion to Reach Emissions Target

Countries Need to Invest $55 Trillion to Reach Emissions Target

By Rajesh Kumar Singh 16 September 2020, 15:39 BST: Updated on 17 September 2020, 07:17 BST

Global economies will need to invest as much as $55 trillion through the middle of the century to meet an emissions goal and contain warming of the planet, according to a report by a group of executives from energy-intensive companies including ArcelorMittal SA, BP Plc and Royal Dutch Shell Plc.

Reaching net-zero carbon emissions target by 2050 will require large-scale electrification of industries, buildings and transport, as well as the use of hydrogen and biofuels in areas that can’t be electrified, according to the Energy Transitions Commission. Using less energy to produce more and recycling material will aid the efforts. Building renewable power plants will take up a bulk of the estimated investment. read more
