LONDON –  Royal Dutch Shell PLC’s (RDS.A) planned $70 billion acquisition of BG Group PLC would create a giant operator of liquefied-natural-gas vessels, offering owners that charter the ships more opportunities for lucrative, long-term contracts in an otherwise-depressed shipping industry.

“The merger offers owners more flexibility and better utilization of their fleets, which could mean long-term leases offering steady income,” said Ted Petropoulos, head of Athens-based Petrofin Research. “It’s also a defensive move to secure market share as more players come into the market.” read more

Low US Natural Gas Price Means More Coal Burning in Europe-Shell

By Selina Williams: Published December 05, 2012 by Dow Jones Newswires

Low natural gas prices in the U.S. and weak prices for carbon permits in Europe are pushing more polluting coal into Europe where it is being burned to generate electricity, Royal Dutch Shell PLC’s (RDSA) Upstream International Director Andy Brown said Wednesday.

The shift in energy flows comes as Europe is trying to reduce its emissions of greenhouse gases to meet climate targets and highlights how North America’s shale gas boom has rewritten the global energy map, in some cases to the detriment of regional energy policy. read more

Shell Still Interested in Mozambique Gas Bonanza

Published October 18, 2012

Dow Jones Newswires

Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSB.LN) is still interested in entering Mozambique despite losing out on a deal earlier this year that would have given the oil major access to East Africa’s huge gas reserves, Shell’s exploration chief, Andy Brown, said in an interview.

Large natural gas discoveries off the coasts of Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya have transformed East Africa into one of the world’s most promising energy provinces, potentially challenging Qatar and Australia for key gas export markets in Asia.

The gas finds have already led to jostling between companies eager to get access to the region, where they would join Houston oil company Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (APC) and Italy’s Eni SpA (E, ENI.MI), both of which have already made significant discoveries. read more
