An 11th hour bid has been launched to try to halt plans by Royal Dutch Shell to explore for oil in vital whale breeding grounds along the Wild Coast of eastern South Africa.

Campaigners filed an urgent legal challenge against the seismic survey, which was scheduled to begin on Wednesday, in a last-ditch bid to prevent it harming whales, dolphins and seals in the relatively untouched marine environment. read more

National security review stalls sale of Shell U.S. refinery to Mexican state oil firm

Erwin Seba: Publishing date: Nov 30, 2021

HOUSTON — A national security review has delayed the sale of Royal Dutch Shell’s controlling interest in a Texas refinery to Mexico’s national oil company Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex), Shell said on Tuesday.

Shell in May disclosed a sale of its 50% interest in the 302,800 barrel-per-day (bpd) Deer Park, Texas, refinery outside Houston to partner Pemex for about $596 million.

The closing was expected as early as Wednesday. read more

Shell faces activist outcry over planned seismic survey of South African coast

Shell faces activist outcry over planned seismic survey of South African coast

By PAUL BURKHARDT and Laura Hurst: Bloomberg

Nov. 29, 2021 at 10:24 am Updated Nov. 29, 2021 at 7:10 pm

Royal Dutch Shell faces a growing campaign against its plans to conduct a seismic survey of potential oil and gas reservoirs off South Africa’s rugged coastline.

The standoff is the latest example of environmental groups’ push to halt oil and gas developments before they even get going – an effort that has been buoyed by an International Energy Agency report saying no new fields can be tapped if the world wants to prevent damaging climate change. read more

Completely useless, my elderly mother’s phone line wasn’t receiving incoming calls and despite several days of hanging on a phone hers and mine, could not contact anyone. Tried the website which again is so poorly laid out found a chat option but it wouldn’t let you leave a message on any browser.

Shell to ‘blast’ South African coastline in search of oil during whale season

Shell to ‘blast’ South African coastline in search of oil during whale season

Shell is set to spend the next four months searching for oil and gas along a virtually untouched South African coastline.

The million-pound company plans to look for fossil fuels underneath the sea along the Eastern Cape’s Wild Coast – a stretch of land aptly named for its untamed wilderness and lack of major industrialisation.

But Shell’s ships will have to conduct three-dimensional seismic surveys to do this, using underwater explosions to record ground vibrations which can indicate what natural resources lay beneath. read more

Shell’s departure deals blow to Dutch pro-business credentials

25 Nov 2021

Stef Blok had an unenviable task for any economy minister last week: explaining how his country was about to lose one of its most high-profile multinational companies.

The decision by oil and gas group Royal Dutch Shell to end its dual corporate structure and move its tax base to the UK, after being in the Netherlands for more than a century, was a “sensitive loss” for the country, Blok told the Dutch parliament. It is particularly embarrassing for the pro-business caretaker government of Prime Minister Mark Rutte. read more

Shell holds talks with investors to push through London HQ move

BY: NICHOLAS EARL: TUESDAY 23 NOVEMBER 2021 4:28 PM

Royal Dutch Shell is looking to persuade investors to back its plan to relocate the company’s headquarters from the Netherlands to UK.

The oil giant’s management team has set up more than 100 meetings with leading investors in recent days to push through historic company, sources told Reuters.

Shell announced earlier this month they would scrap dual Anglo-Dutch share structure, move to London from The Hague, and ditch the Royal Dutch branding after 114 years of holding the name. read more

Shell Launches Shareholder Talks to Win Backing for HQ Move, Sources Say

By Reuters:

LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell has launched talks with investors to secure support for its plan to relocate its headquarters from the Netherlands to Britain, sources said, as a leading advisory recommended backing the move at a December vote.

Shell said this month it would scrap its dual Anglo-Dutch share structure and move its head office to London from The Hague due to the Dutch tax system and after a court ruling over its strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The company also plans to move its tax residence to Britain and drop “Royal Dutch” from its name – part of its identity since 1907 – to become Shell Plc. read more

Brexit success: Shell headquarter move shows Remoaner predictions are ‘other way around’

OIL giant Shell is relocating its headquarters from the Netherlands to the UK, a move some are labelling as proof that Brexit is not synonymous with losing foreign business.

By TERESA GOTTEIN MARTINEZ

Shell has this week announced it was ready to sacrifice the designation “Royal” — from Royal Dutch Shell — to shift its tax residency from the EU to the UK. It already chose the country as its corporate base and primary stock market listing in 2005 but now, “despite Brexit“, the British-Dutch multinational will call London its only home. read more

BY HELENA SUTAN ON 

Shell is ‘doing its own Brexit,’ with a massive EU snub in favor of the UK move.

THE European Union has been shattered after it was revealed that oil giant Shell is “doing its own Brexit” by moving its headquarters from the Netherlands to the United Kingdom, with one political expert dubbing the news a “political bomb.”

Royal Dutch Shell is getting rid of its dual share structure and relocating its headquarters from the Netherlands to the United Kingdom, which is a huge win for the Brexit campaign. read more
