Royal Dutch Shell: Mid-Year 2021 Review

Tudor Invest Holdings: Aug. 03. 2021

Summary

  • Higher commodity prices in Q2 pushed free cash flow to $12.7 billion.
  • Shareholders should welcome the 38% increase in dividend and plan of share buyback.
  • But the share price action seems to tell that the market is not that impressed.
  • Net Zero carbon emission seems very ambitious to say the least.

Shell to buy Inspire Energy in green energy push

Tue, July 27, 2021, 7:33 PM

July 27 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell Plc said on Tuesday it would buy renewable energy retailer Inspire Energy Capital LLC, as the European major looks to expand its renewable power business in the United States.

The deal, by the company’s unit Shell New Energies U.S. LLC, advances Shell’s strategy to build and scale renewable and low-carbon businesses with a target to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050.

Shell has been seeking ways to accelerate its energy transition strategy and deepen carbon emission cuts following a landmark Dutch court ruling in May.

Like other oil companies, Shell has come under investor pressure to slash planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions… read more

What If Shell Followed Volkswagen’s Example In The Fight Against Climate Change?

Forbes

What If Shell Followed Volkswagen’s Example In The Fight Against Climate Change?

Jeroen Kraaijenbrink:

Volkswagen is not Shell and cars are not oil. But the similarities are striking. They are both giant corporations (#1 and #3 in Europe respectively), they are both high-tech firms, they are both capital intensive, they both still depend on oil, and both like to see themselves as leaders in their industries. In light of these similarities: what if Shell followed Volkswagen’s example in the fight for climate change? If Shell wants to do so, the time is now. Because the window of opportunity is short. If Shell doesn’t embrace renewable energy at full speed now, it may soon lose its chance to become one of the major energy players of the future. Sure, also in 2030, or 2050, they might still be a major player in the energy industry. But if they want to accept a role as the industry leader, now is the right moment. What if. read more

Shell To Appeal Landmark Court Ruling

Shell To Appeal Landmark Court Ruling

By City A.M – Jul 21, 2021, 11:30 AM CDT

Shell has today confirmed that it will appeal against a landmark court ruling requiring the oil giant to cut emissions faster than it had planned to.

The Anglo-Dutch firm said that it had been unfairly singled out by the ruling, which it said was not an “effective” way of tackling climate change.

In May, a court in the Hague ordered the firm to slash greenhouse emissions by 45 percent from 2019 levels by 2030. read more

How a powerful US lobby group helps big oil to block climate action

How a powerful US lobby group helps big oil to block climate action

Chris McGreal: Mon 19 Jul 2021 11.00 BST

When Royal Dutch Shell published its annual environmental report in April, it boasted that it was investing heavily in renewable energy. The oil giant committed to installing hundreds of thousands of charging stations for electric vehicles around the world to help offset the harm caused by burning fossil fuels.

On the same day, Shell issued a separate report revealing that its single largest donation to political lobby groups last year was made to the American Petroleum Institute, one of the US’s most powerful trade organizations, which drives the oil industry’s relationship with Congress. read more

Shell proposes large-scale CCS facility in Alberta

Shell proposes large-scale CCS facility in Alberta

Tuesday, July 13, 2021, 12 AM MDT

CALGARY, AB, July 13, 2021 /CNW/ – Today, Shell announced a proposal to build a large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project at its Scotford Complex near Edmonton. This would be a key step in transforming Scotford into one of five energy and chemicals parks for Shell around the world, providing customers with lower-carbon fuels and products into the future, such as hydrogen.

The proposed Polaris CCS project, the largest in a series of low-carbon opportunities Shell is exploring at Scotford, would capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from the Shell-owned Scotford refinery and chemicals plant. The initial phase is expected to start operations around the middle of the decade, subject to a final investment decision by Shell expected in 2023. Polaris would have storage capacity of about 300 million tonnes of CO2 over the life of the project. read more

Climate change is about greed. It’s time for big oil to pay us back

CNN OPINION

Climate change is about greed. It’s time for big oil to pay us back

Recently, a Dutch court in The Hague ordered Royal Dutch Shell to slash the emissions from its products. The European Union as a whole is moving forward with a European Green Deal to decarbonize the EU energy system no later than 2050. In line with the European plans, Volkswagen recently declared its intention to phase out ICEs in Europe by 2035.

As with the drug companies that pushed addictive painkillers on Americans and tobacco companies that pushed killer cigarettes, it’s time for the oil industry to pay heavy penalties on ill-gotten gains, the flip side of which are the death and destruction caused by extreme climate events. read more

Scientists hired by oil giants predicted climate crisis 60 years ago: Report

By CNBCTV18.com | IST (Published)

More than 26 lawsuits have been filed in the US against oil companies for their role in climate change. The internal documents of these companies contain research data collected by their teams regarding the effect of rising global temperatures.

These researchers had accurately predicted rising global temperatures. Some of these researchers have testified that fossil fuel companies, petroleum giants like Exxon, Chevron, Shell and BP among others, knew about the role of burning fossil fuels in global warming more than 60 years ago. read more

Rapid oil cuts is ‘valley of death’ for Shell, says chief Ben van Beurden

Rapid oil cuts is ‘valley of death’ for Shell, says chief Ben van Beurden

Boss says he has to balance wind-down of fossil fuels with cashflow from new businesses

Cutting Royal Dutch Shell’s oil and gas production too quickly before its new green businesses are generating cash would lead the company into a “valley of death”, its chief executive has said.

Speaking in the aftermath of a Dutch court ruling forcing the oil major to cut its emissions faster than planned, Ben van Beurden said he was prepared to take “more risk than our investors traditionally would like to see us take” to accelerate the growth of its clean energy operations. read more
