Shell outlines tighter upstream, refining footprint in post-COVID transition plans

London — Shell plans to focus its future upstream operations on nine core areas and transform its refining portfolio into six integrated sites which are part of moves to grow its low-carbon businesses and support its cash flows, the major said Oct. 29.

Shell raises dividend as earnings beat forecasts

Emily GosdenThe Times

Royal Dutch Shell has raised its dividend after reporting stronger-than-expected third-quarter results.

The Anglo-Dutch oil group said it now had the “confidence” to resume dividend growth after cutting its payout in April for the first time since the Second World War in response to the crash in oil prices.

It announced a modest 4 per cent increase for the third quarter, committed itself to raising the payout by 4 per cent annually thereafter and promised additional returns to shareholders through buybacks once it had reduced its debt levels. read more

Analysis: Will Nigeria yield in oil deal wrestling bout with Shell and Eni?

Analysis: Will Nigeria yield in oil deal wrestling bout with Shell and Eni?

By Lionel Faull: 27 October 2020

High profile courtroom dramas involving multiple sides often have the feel of a WWE Smackdown wrestling match: titanic egos clashing with each other, trying to batter their foes into submission. The fighters forge alliances, and the argy-bargy can sometimes spill out of the ring and break out elsewhere in the auditorium.

An epic international corruption trial that is now drawing to a close under the glamourous lights of Milan is a case in point. read more

Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath SNP MP Neale Hanvey has written to the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) and Health and Safety Executive (HSE) raising “serious concerns” about reductions in staff at Shell’s Fife NGL Plant at Mossmorran.

It is understood  Shell intends to axe 63 out of 77 contractor jobs at the plant – a move trade union Unite has claimed could put lives at risk.

However, Shell has maintained, despite not disputing Unite’s figures, that not all roles being lost relate to “safety critical maintenance” and has given an assurance that safety at the plant would not be compromised. read more

Investors fear there’ll be no bright post-Covid dawn for oil majors

Investors fear there’ll be no bright post-Covid dawn for oil majors

Jillian Ambrose: Sun 25 Oct 2020 00.05 BST

Royal Dutch Shell and BP will both face investors this week with quarterly financial results that will deliver profits well below those achieved a year ago, against a backdrop of tumbling share prices and rising Covid infections across major economies. In the same week, Shell is expected to reveal a modest underlying profit, of $146m, for the third quarter, according to analysts, after plunging to a loss of $18.4bn for the second quarter. This is still a fraction of the $4.76bn profit recorded in the same quarter last year, and follows the company’s decision to cut 9,000 jobs and reduce the dividend for the first time since the second world war. read more
