BP, Shell presence at United Nations climate conference set to be limited

Sep. 20, 2021 11:14 PM ETBP, RDS.A…Iberdrola, S.A. (IBDRY)SSE plc (SSEZY)SSE plc (SSEZF)By: Carl SurranSA News Editor

  • BP and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.ARDS.B) are disappointed at being sidelined at the United Nations climate conference which starts October 31 in Glasgow, Wall Street Journal reports, as the oil industry has yet to agree on science-based plans for how it will reduce carbon emissions, a hurdle U.K. organizers set as a prerequisite for involvement in the event.
  • Both companies reportedly had hoped to be more heavily involved in the event after committing to plans to pivot away from oil and gas and invest more in low-carbon energy, though they plan to send staff, and BP says CEO Bernard Looney will attend.
  • Other energy firms, such as utilities SSE (OTCPK:SSEZY) and Scottish Power, which is owned by Ibderdrola (OTCPK:IBDRY), are among the event’s sponsors after their emissions reduction plans were approved by the organizers.
  • Meanwhile, a new United Nations analysis of country pledges under the Paris climate agreement says global emissions would be 16% higher in 2030 than in 2010, far from the 45% reduction by 2030 that scientists say is needed to stave off serious climate change.
  • The climate plans are contrasted by an energy shortage crisis in Europe that threatens to get worse by the time the Glasgow conference occurs.

    Royal Dutch Shell is selling its Permian Basin oil holdings to ConocoPhillips for $9.5 billion

    The New York Times

    Royal Dutch Shell is selling its Permian Basin oil holdings to ConocoPhillips for $9.5 billion.

    HOUSTON — Royal Dutch Shell sold its oil and gas production in the Permian Basin, the biggest American oil field, to ConocoPhillips for $9.5 billion in cash on Monday.

    The deal marks a turning point for Shell, which had put considerable effort into developing the 225,000-acre field since buying it from Chesapeake Energy nine years ago, expanding its production to about 200,000 barrels a day. read more

    Competition watchdog gives firms deadline on ending ‘greenwashing’

    Competition watchdog gives firms deadline on ending ‘greenwashing’

    Rob Davies: Mon 20 Sep 2021 16.02 BST

    The UK competition watchdog has given companies that make misleading claims about their environmental credentials until the end of the year to stop the practice, which is known as “greenwashing”.

    Too many businesses were “falsely taking credit for being green” in order to woo environmentally minded consumers, the Competition and Markets Authority said.

    Also in 2020, the Advertising Standards Authority clamped down on several major companies, including the airline Ryanair, the carmaker BMW and the oil producer Shell, over greenwashing adverts. read more

    The lawyer who brought Shell to its knees

    Roger Cox: The lawyer who brought Shell to its knees

    Cox may come from Maastricht, but this climate lawyer has developed an international reputation thanks to his role in a case against Royal Dutch Shell. Back in May, the Limburger won what former Vice President Al Gore called a David vs Goliath legal battle that forced Shell to reduce its emissions by 45 percent by 2030.

    Absolutely fed up with Shell Energy

    The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

    18 Sept 2021

    absolutely fed-up

    I’m absolutely fed-up dealing with this company. My student daughter lived for one year in a bed sit supplied by Shell energy. I’m authorised to discuss her account.

    There have been errors by Shell with starting and ending the account. We asked for a final bill at move out and twice since, no final bill received but did receive a letter from debt recovery company.
    I do need to see the final bill given earlier stated errors, it’s not a large amount of money and she is able and willing to settle on receipt of the final bill. read more

    Fire breaks out at Shell’s Pulau Bukom refining site in Singapore, now out

    By Jessica Jaganathan

    SINGAPORE, Sept 18 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell RDSa.L said on Saturday a fire broke out at a unit at its refining and petrochemicals manufacturing site at Pulau Bukom in southwestern Singapore on Friday morning and has been put out.

    The site, which houses Shell’s largest wholly-owned refinery with a capacity of 500,000 barrels-per-day (bpd), continues to be in operation and there is no impact on supply, a spokesperson told Reuters, adding that the fire was extinguished about 4-1/2 hours after it broke out. read more

    Shell Energy Customer Service is Absolute Rubbish

    17 Sept 2021

    Terrible service numerous phone calls…

    Terrible service numerous phone calls to sort issues, customer service very good at stating things will be sorted but actually haven’t been in reality. Final straw today as a letter arrived from the debt collector before we’ve even received the final bill we were told was on its way! My husband telephoned to sort out and escalate but told no management available. If this is not sorted my student daughter may have credit issues through this companies incompetence, let alone the anxiety caused by receiving such a letter ! Throughout we have provided readings, moving in and out dates, at one point a helpful lady appeared to have resolved one issue but then others occurred ! Other reviews state good customer service but sadly no resolutions in our case as of yet. read more

    Shell Broadband deserves zero or negative stars

    17 Sept 2021: Shell Broadband

    Abysmal

    This review relates to Shell Energy Broadband.

    If I could give zero or negative stars I would do so. Following the end of my contract I received multiple emails telling me I hadn’t returned the router and that I owed £35. I wrote to the CEO to complain, enclosing proof of receipt of the router by Shell. In the follow up call I received from Shell I was told to ignore any further emails from them. But I have now received an email from a firm of debt collectors. I will be making a formal complaint to Ofcom. read more

    Exxon helped cause the climate crisis. It’s time they owned up

    The Guardian:

    Exxon helped cause the climate crisis. It’s time they owned up

    Mark Hertsgaard: Thursday 16 Sept 2021

    EXTRACTS

    Royal Dutch Shell even anticipated the current wave of lawsuits: an internal study in 1998 forecast a scenario in which environmental groups would band together to file “a class action lawsuit on the grounds of neglecting what scientists, including [the industry’s] own, have been saying for years”.

    Indeed, last May the Netherlands branch of the advocacy group Friends of the Earth won a landmark case against Shell. A Dutch court ordered Shell to bring its global operations in line with the Paris agreement goal of limiting temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels. This will require Shell to reduce both its own and its customers’ emissions by a staggering 45% from 2019 levels by 2030. Shell is appealing the ruling. read more

    14 Sept 2021: SHELL BROADBAND

    Don’t bother getting Shell energy broadband

    Shell energy broadband appear to be very disorganized, so be prepared for unexpected charges and constant email follow ups:

    1. They failed to correctly setup my direct debit three times, so I just gave up and paid with digitally each month.
    2. They calculated my final bill (that was in credit) using the discount code used for the contract. This effectively gave me a 10% reduction in my refund.
    3. They charged me for the router that was returned. I have provided the shipping details plus evidence that they signed and received it, but I’m still waiting for this charge to be cancelled. read more
