Jillian Ambrose Energy correspondent: Wed 1 Dec 2021 06.00 GMT

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

    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

    Project Fear exposed: Four major warnings Remainers got wrong – as Shell relocates to UK

    BREXIT BRITAIN’S latest victory will see oil giant Shell relocate its headquarters to the UK has fuelled new Frexit calls, with a leading campaigner insisting it once again proves how Project Fear was “wrong on everything”.

    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 the UK 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 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 faces anger over takeover of Australian green energy retailer

    REUTERS: Wed, November 24, 2021, 6:53 AM

    MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell is facing protests over its takeover of green energy retailer Powershop Australia, with customers threatening to switch to other renewable energy providers to avoid becoming customers of a fossil fuel company.

    Shell said on Monday it was expanding into Australia’s household power market by teaming up with Infrastructure Capital Group to buy Meridian Energy’s Australian electricity business, which has more than 185,000 customers, for A$729 million ($526 million). The deal is expected to close in early 2022. read more

    Shell takeover of Powershop infuriates green consumers

    By Henrietta Cook: November 24, 2021 — 5.46pm

    Consumers are abandoning online green energy darling Powershop Australia after Shell announced earlier this week that it would acquire the electricity and gas retailer and 185,000 of its customers.

    Political activist group GetUp, which previously encouraged tens of thousands of its followers to switch to Powershop to support cleaner energy, is furious about the $729 million deal. It described Shell as “one of the worst climate polluters in the world”. 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
