Royal Dutch Shell investor RWC to back Follow This climate proposal at AGM

Simon Jessop: May 13, 2021: 12.27 PM BST

Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) investor RWC said on Thursday it planned to back a climate-related shareholder proposal put forward at the company’s annual meeting by activist group Follow This.

RWC said the company’s energy transition plans were not ambitious enough, lacked detail and did not put the company on a path to align with the goals of the Paris Agreement within the next decade. read more

Big Oil and its green ambitions could be about to get a serious reality check

Big Oil and its green ambitions could be about to get a serious reality check

Sam Meredith: PUBLISHED TUE, MAY 11 20211:29 AM EDT

KEY POINTS

  • Oil and gas majors on both sides of the Atlantic are preparing to hold their annual shareholder meetings in the coming weeks.

  • At present, not a single oil and gas company is aligned with Paris-consistent emission reduction targets or investment levels.

  • In a first for the industry, Shell will put its own net-zero transition plan to its shareholders on May 18.

LONDON — The month of May promises to be a ground-breaking one for Big Oil.

Oil and gas majors on both sides of the Atlantic are preparing to hold their annual shareholder meetings in the coming weeks. It comes at a time when the world’s largest corporate emitters are under immense pressure to set short, medium and long-term emissions targets that are consistent with the Paris Agreement.

At present, not a single oil and gas company is aligned with Paris-consistent emission reduction targets or investment levels more than five years after the landmark climate accord was ratified by nearly 200 countries. The agreement is widely recognized as critically important to avoid an irreversible climate crisis. read more

Half of Shell Energy Mix to Be Clean Next Decade

Half of Shell Energy Mix to Be Clean Next Decade

by Bloomberg | Laura Hurst | Monday, May 10, 2021

(Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s head expects clean energy to make up half of the company’s energy mix “somewhere in the next decade.”

“If we do not make that type of process by the middle of next decade, we have a problem not just as a company but as a society,” Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden said in an interview with AXIOS on HBO.

Like its European peers, the Anglo-Dutch major has set itself an “ambition” to become a net-zero emissions energy company by the middle of this century. The feat involves producing less oil, more gas and renewables, as well as using technologies still in their infancy like hydrogen and carbon sequestration. Not everyone is convinced, with the energy giant set to clash with some shareholders on the matter at its annual general meeting later this month. read more

Royal Dutch Shell Consortium To Receive $2.4B For Carbon Capture Project – Report

Royal Dutch Shell Consortium To Receive $2.4B For Carbon Capture Project – Report

[email protected] (Ben Mahaney):

According to Dutch broadcaster NOS, the Dutch government will grant Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and its group about $2.4 billion in subsidies for a climate change project.

In January, Shell, Exxon (XOM), Air Liquide, and Air Products sought the government’s support for their project to reduce the Netherlands’ carbon footprint. The project encompasses capturing and storing carbon dioxide from industrial operations in the Rotterdam port area instead of letting it go into the atmosphere. The government has granted their request. read more

Energy giants’ lobbying fuels the rise of hydrogen

Energy giants’ lobbying fuels the rise of hydrogen

Shell and BP want the controversial gas in families’ boilers. They’re pushing hard. By John Collingridge

EXTRACTS

Houchen’s campaign has had a distinctly green tinge. He has campaigned on a ticket of clean industrial rebirth in an area ravaged by the closures of steel and chemicals works.

Hydrogen has been at its heart — an element that in just a few years has propelled into the mainstream.

Huge vested interests lie behind the rise of hydrogen: oil giants such as Shell, BP and Norway’s Equinor have staked their futures on natural gas as a less-polluting alternative to oil. read more

Shell climate plan draws fund opposition at upcoming AGM

Shell climate plan draws fund opposition at upcoming AGM

Apr. 28, 2021, 11:55 AM ET Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.A) By Carl SurranSA News Editor

  • Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDS.ARDS.Bclimate change strategy does not go far enough, the U.K.’s Local Authority Pension Fund Forum says in recommending members oppose the plan at the company’s annual general meeting next month.
  • “The strategy as stated does not sufficiently address the challenges Shell faces, with competition from renewable energy potentially putting fossil fuel businesses out of business on cost grounds alone,” LAPFF Chair Doug McMurdo says.
  • The fund chair also questions Shell’s reliance on carbon capture and storage solutions and the company’s plans to plant lots of trees to help reduce its emissions.
  • LAPFF, whose 82 members manage more than £300B ($416.6B) in assets, says it backs a resolution from the Follow This activist group that calls for Shell to align its targets with the Paris climate agreement.
  • While the result will be non-binding, Shell is set to become the first major oil and gas company to give investors a chance to vote on its energy transition strategy.

    Shell raises its dividend as profits surge

    Reuters Ron Bousso Shadia Nasralla: April 29, 2021

    Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDSa.L) profits leapt to $3.23 billion in the first three months of the year and the energy company raised its dividend as planned but warned on Thursday that the outlook remained uncertain due to the pandemic.

    Shell’s adjusted earnings came in ahead of an average analyst forecast of $3.125 billion and were also above earnings of $2.9 billion last year, boosted by assets sales as well as higher oil and liquefied natural gas prices. read more

    Prelude’s future darkens as losses mount.

    Tim Treadgold Asia: April 26, 2021

    Prelude or finale, that’s a question some observers are starting to ask about a $12 billion ship called Prelude which was supposed to revolutionize the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry.

    Built by Royal Dutch Shell, Prelude is designed to move from one offshore gasfield to another, avoiding the need for costly offshore structures and pipelines to shore-based gas processing facilities. read more
