Oil And Gas Companies Will Never Truly Be Carbon Neutral

Oil And Gas Companies Will Never Truly Be Carbon Neutral

  • Oil and gas companies are pushing a net-zero narrative, but their pledges may not live up to true carbon neutrality.
  • Carbon neutral oil and gas is largely reliant on the murky world of carbon credits and carbon offsets.
  • The lack of standardization and transparency within the carbon credit market has drawn a lot of criticism.

The energy transition, net-zero pledges, and increased investor pressure on oil and gas companies to slash emissions have given rise to the latest trend in energy markets—the arrival of the ‘carbon neutral’ oil barrel and the ‘carbon neutral’ liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo.

Oil and gas firms have started to offer those so-called carbon neutral oil and gas shipments. And buyers are lapping them up as they themselves are also pressured by investors and their own carbon reduction pledges to procure lower-emission energy supply. read more

Oil companies missed transition pivot

Oil companies missed transition pivot

Shell and activist investor both agree that mistakes were made in the ’00s

“We gave up wind 15 years ago, which was a strategic mistake,” Shell CEO Ben van Beurden admitted in an October Ted event otherwise overshadowed by the executive being on the end of a withering personal attack by a climate campaigner.

And Chris James, co-founder of investor Engine No.1, agrees that oil firms such as Shell should have switched to more transition-focused businesses before the 2008 financial crisis. “There was an opportunity, about 15 years ago, for the oil and gas industry to lean very heavily into renewables and to really start the energy transition,” says James. “That is when they had a cost-of-capital advantage, that is when they had great balance sheets. But it did not happen… read more

Shell in better shape to fund distribution increase

Shell in better shape to fund distribution increase

The Anglo-Dutch group has reduced net debt markedly from pre-pandemic levels October 19, 2021 By Mark Robinson Extracts

Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) used to be the world’s greatest source of dividend income, but that came to an end last year when oil prices tanked. A production spat between Saudi Arabia and Russia, exacerbated by an unprecedented slump in industrial demand, sent forward contracts into negative territory at one point. Share buybacks were promptly put on ice and the group’s quarterly distributions were pegged back for the first time in living memory. read more

UK’s Shell Energy to take on customers of three failed suppliers

Mon, 18 October 2021

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s energy market regulator Ofgem said on Monday it has appointed Royal Dutch Shell’s power retail business Shell Energy to take on customers of Pure Planet Limited, Daligas Limited and Colorado Energy Limited.

The three firms had a combined total of around 252,000 domestic and 600 non-domestic customers. They ceased trading last week.

Last month, Shell Energy took on 255,000 customers from another failed supplier, Green Supplier. That means that in total, Shell Energy will add 50% of its current customer base of around 1 million. read more

Britain’s fossil fuel dilemma in the spotlight as climate talks near

Britain’s fossil fuel dilemma in the spotlight as climate talks near

By Shadia Nasralla: Oct 19, 2021

EXTRACTS

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain faces a fossil fuel dilemma: it can burnish its green credentials by halting new oil and gas development in the North Sea, yet doing so will leave it more reliant on imported fuel.

Britain’s Oil and Gas Authority said gas extracted from the British North Sea had an average emission intensity of 22 kg carbon dioxide equivalent per barrel of oil equivalent, while imported LNG had an average intensity of 59 kg. read more

Royal Dutch Shell Corporate Collaboration with the Nazis

By John Donovan

From: “New Images of Nazi Germany”

Extract from the section “Corporate Collaboration” commencing page 203 running onto page 204

The connection of the Royal Dutch Shell Group to Nazi Germany centered on Sir Henri Deterding…

Variously described as the “most powerful man in the world” and the “Napoleon of Oil,” he was also an early admirer of both Hitler and Mussolini…

Deterding himself offered a plan in 1935 to provide a year’s worth of oil credit to Nazi Germany, in principle a war reserve. read more

Shell broadband are the worst ever

Shell broadband are quite simply a complete con. My live date was 24/8/21 and all I got was sorry this and sorry that for the reasons they couldn’t connect it all up. It’s now 6/10/21 and I’ve just had to cancel it all together as it’s still not fitted up or connected. I advise anyone to not use this company as they are literally thieves. They are the worst service I’ve ever ever seen . There live chat and phone operators are incompetent to athe highest level. They push you to every department passing the buck all the time. It’s a shocking service and I have contacted bbc watchdog to make them aware of it too. Avoid this at all costs read more

Absolute hell to get in touch with

Abolute hell to get in touch with. Virtual Assistant is a waste of time and energy. I am already sorry I transfered to them. When I finally got through the lady was very pleasant and helpful.

Not trueful

I have just changed to Shell through one of their agents who came to my house to discuss terms and conditions. The agent was very polite and pleasant and felt he was treating me fairly. He offered me £50 credit on my bill as a referral from my son, who has also just joined Shell, and £50 to my son. He also said my first payment would be one month after joining Shell. Both offers are untrue. When calling Shell they informed me no such offer should be made. I have made a complaint of mis-selling and awaiting the result. I thought this practice had disappeared, but it appears I’m wrong. read more

Shell’s effort to help maintain Hitler’s foreign markets thereby aiding the Nazi Government in its direct war against Britain

EXTRACT FROM A U.S. SENATE REPORT 1943

By John Donovan

A recently published book revealed the extent to which Shell played a key role in Hitler’s war effort. Unfortunately for Shell, new information about Shell’s Nazi history emerges on a regular basis.

The information below is from a hearing held in the United States Senate in 1943. It is available online as a result of a digitization project by Google.

The featured extract has the headline SHELL OIL INTERESTS OFFERED TO HELP GERMANY EVADE BLOCKADE. It is about a business deal between Shell and its German partner in many major ventures, I.G. Farben. The chemical giant supplied the Zyklon-B gas used to exterminate millions of innocent people in the Holocaust. Many I.G. Farben directors were found guilty of war crimes. read more
