Shell won’t abandon green transition in face higher oil prices, says CEO

December 1, 2021

LONDON (BLOOMBERG) – The oil and gas market may be tightening amid historically low investment levels, but that won’t change Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s strategy to shift from fossil fuels, the firm’s chief executive said on Tuesday (Nov 30).

Shell is one of many European majors that have pledged to shrink its traditional hydrocarbon business, while increasing investments in clean energy. While some critics have raised concerns that high oil prices might tempt these firms to stick to fossil fuels, chief executive Ben van Beurden said Shell is adhering to its energy transition strategy. read more

    Shell’s move to a new headquarters in London demonstrates that Remoaner predictions are ‘wrong’.

    Shell’s move to a new headquarters in London demonstrates that Remoaner predictions are ‘wrong’.

    BY HELENA SUTAN ON 

    Shell’s move to a new headquarters demonstrates that Remoaner predictions are ‘wrong’.

    Shell, the world’s largest oil company, is relocating its headquarters from the Netherlands to the United Kingdom, a move that some see as proof that Brexit does not imply a loss of international business.

    Shell announced this week that it was willing to forego the designation “Royal” — from Royal Dutch Shell — in order to move its tax residency from the EU to the UK. The British-Dutch multinational had already chosen the country as its corporate base and primary stock market listing in 2005, but now it will call London its only home “despite Brexit.” read more

    ‘Political bomb!’ Shell ‘doing own Brexit’ with huge EU snub in favour of UK move

    THE European Union has been destroyed after being told oil giant Shell is “doing its own Brexit” by relocating its HQ from the Netherlands to the UK, with one political expert branding the news a “political bomb”.

    By PAUL WITHERS

    In a huge win for Brexit Britain, Royal Dutch Shell is scrapping its dual share structure and moving its head office to Britain from the Netherlands. The company is dropping “Royal Dutch” from its name – part of its identity since 1907 – to become Shell Plc. The firm has been at the centre of a bitter row with Dutch authorities over the country’s 15 percent dividend withholding tax on some of its shares, which makes them less attractive for investors. read more

    Shell’s decision to leave the Netherlands is about keeping investors on its side in difficult times

    Shell’s decision to leave the Netherlands is about keeping investors on its side in difficult times

    BY KATHERINE DUNN: November 16, 2021 4:58 PM GMT

    The Dutch government is scrambling to find a way to make Royal Dutch Shell remain royal and Dutch after the oil and gas giant announced Monday that it had decided to up sticks from its home in the Hague and move its headquarters to London.

    The Dutch government’s eagerness to retain the giant firm is not surprising—and exactly how Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and his cabinet are trying to do so says a lot about which of Shell’s stated reasons for moving is the most important one. read more

    Oil major switches sides: Shell’s UK move is a big plus for the City post-Brexit, says ALEX BRUMMER

    Shell’s decision to sacrifice its ‘Royal Dutch’ designation and unify its domicile in London is epoch-making.

    It is a big plus for the City post-Brexit, even if there are green campaigners who will find the increased presence of an oil major in the UK a cause for disquiet. read more

    Governments and Big Oil were first. The next wave of climate lawsuits will target banks and boards

    Sam [email protected] :PUBLISHED THU, NOV 11 20212:26 AM EST

    GLASGOW, Scotland — Financial institutions and individual board members could be the next targets of climate litigation cases, according to the campaigners who helped to secure a landmark courtroom victory against oil giant Royal Dutch Shell.

    It comes at a time when countries are scrambling to reach consensus in the final days of the COP26 climate summit. Negotiators from 197 countries are taking part in discussions with the goal of keeping the all-important global target of 1.5 degrees Celsius alive. read more

    Shell teams up with Norsk Hydro to work on green hydrogen projects

    Anmar Frangoul:

    Norsk Hydro and fossil fuel giant Shell are to look into the potential of joint projects focused on green hydrogen production.

    In an announcement Tuesday, Norway’s Hydro said a memorandum of understanding had been signed between the two parties.

    Under the deal, Shell and Hydro’s green hydrogen business, Hydro Havrand, will focus on the joint generation and supply of hydrogen “produced from renewable electricity in hubs centered around Hydro and Shell’s own business, and where they see strong potential for scaling production for customers in heavy industry and transport.” read more

    We’ll all pay for turning Big Oil into a pariah

    Extracts

    If nothing else, the apparent contradiction in aims highlights a basic truth about “Big Oil”; like it or not, the world remains overwhelmingly dependent on hydrocarbons for its energy needs; however fast we invest in alternatives, that’s not going to change for some time to come.

    Both of Britain’s oil majors, BP and Shell, have ambitious plans to transform themselves into clean energy enterprises, yet to the fury of Extinction Rebellion activists, the bulk of their investment is still heavily focused on oil and gas. As it is, they are arguably not investing nearly enough in hydrocarbons. read more

    Shell launches $1.4B fund to back companies in energy transition

    Shell launches $1.4B fund to back companies in energy transition

    Royal Dutch Shell, the Hague-based oil major, on Wednesday said it has set up a $1.4 billion fund to support innovative companies working to accelerate energy transition.

    The fund, dedicated to start-up and scale-up companies over the next six years, is part of the oil giant’s efforts to reach a net-zero target. Those efforts also include investments in renewable energy, storage and utilization, mobility, transportation and logistics, circular economy, and nature-based solutions, the company said. read more

    Shell Is the Greenest Big Oil Company. Look What That Got It.

    Shekhar Patil: 31 Oct 2021

    Royal Dutch Shell PLC shows much that is wrong with environmental, social and governance investing. The Anglo-Dutch company was the first to target reduced carbon emissions from customers, has gone further than any of the other oil supermajors to shift its direction away from fossil fuels and is closest of any of them to meeting the Paris carbon target. It even has a better ESG score than electric-car leader Tesla or hydrogen wonder stock Plug Power. read more

    A warning to Shell’s new No1 Enemy, Dan Loeb

    By John Donovan

    Last Sunday I was described in the Channel 4 TV documentary Joe Lycett vs The Oil Giant as Shell’s No1 Enemy and as Shell’s nightmare. (Transcript of the relevant segment)

    Within days I seem to have lost both titles to a billionaire upstart, Daniel Loeb, who seems intent on breaking up Shell.

    From my unique perspective on Shell senior management over recent decades, he is right to question competence and direction.

    How has Shell ended up with a foe (me) operating a website using the top-level domain name royaldutchshellplc.com and as a consequence dealing on Shell’s behalf with job applications and all manner of other email correspondence meant for Shell? This is the humiliating situation Shell has been in since 2005. Evidently, no one at Shell has had the gumption to do anything to put an end to such a farce. read more

    Can a ‘toxic’ business (Shell) really turn from sinner to saint?

    FROM A MAJOR ARTICLE ON TWO-THIRDS OF PAGE 8 OF THE SUNDAY TIMES BUSINESS SECTION OCT 31, 2021

    How should Shell, Glencore and British American Tobacco deal with their “toxic” legacy businesses?

    Robert Watts: Sunday October 31 2021, 12.01am, The Sunday Times

    Ben Van Beurden knew last weekend that he was facing one of the more trying weeks of his 38 years at Shell. But he still had no clue of the impending ambush being prepared by an American billionaire activist investor.

    Shell’s chief executive knew the quarterly figures for the oil and gas giant he would unveil on Thursday would be bad. Profits between July and September came in at $4.1 billion (£3 billion) — well below the $5.4 billion expected and 25 per cent down on the previous quarter. read more
