Shell refuses to set up Gazprom account as it continues Russian withdrawal

Energy giant Shell has confirmed it will not set up a rouble account, under new terms demanded by Kremlin-backed giant Gazprom.

This means it will no longer be contracting Russian gas to fulfil its contracts to European households, including its customers in Germany.

A Shell spokesperson told City A.M.: “Shell has not agreed to new payment terms set out by Gazprom, including the creation of K accounts. We will work to continue supplying our customers in Europe through our diverse portfolio of gas supply. Shell continues to work on a phased withdrawal from Russian hydrocarbons, in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.” read more

Shell sells Russian retail business to Lukoil

May 12 (Reuters) – Russia’s second-largest oil producer Lukoil (LKOH.MM) will buy Shell’s (SHEL.L) Russian retail and lubricants businesses, the companies said on Thursday, as the British oil major moves ahead with its exit from the country following its Ukraine invasion.

The deal includes 411 retail stations, mainly located in the Central and Northwestern regions of Russia, and the Torzhok lubricants blending plant, Shell said in a statement.

“The acquisition of Shell’s high-quality businesses in Russia fits well into Lukoil’s strategy to develop its priority sales channels, including retail, as well as the lubricants business,” said Maxim Donde, a vice-president with Lukoil.

Neither Shell, nor Lukoil would not comment on the value of the deal, which still requires the approval of Russia’s anti-monopoly authorities. read more

“Under this deal, more than 350 people currently employed by Shell Neft will transfer to the new owner of this business,” Shell said. read more

Ukraine urges Johnson to ensure ‘not a drop’ of Russian oil reaches the UK

Shell, one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, has pledged to withdraw from Russian oil products, but…

Ukraine’s government has urged the UK to ensure “not a single drop of Russian oil enters the country”, as it pushed for a “total and immediate” boycott on Russian fossil fuels.

Oleg Ustenko, economic adviser to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, said it was “no time for half measures”. It comes amid concerns Britain may adopt a definition of Russian oil that allows some Kremlin supplies into the country, even under the impending embargo. read more

Shell accused of using ‘accounting trick’ to keep buying Russian oil

: Fri, April 22, 2022,

The Ukrainian government has accused Shell of using an “accounting trick” to allow the oil giant to keep buying Russian crude despite promising to cut ties with the Kremlin.

A letter sent by Kyiv to Shell boss Ben van Beurden said it was “deplorable” that companies are continuing to “bankroll Putin’s war machine” amid concerns Russian oil is still being bought through backdoor routes.

The FTSE 100 oil major committed to stop purchasing Russian crude in the spot market and said it is legally obliged to accept oil deliveries from contracts sealed before the invasion of Ukraine. However, it defines refined oil products, such as diesel, as not being of Russian origin if less than 50pc of the blend is from the country. read more

The New York Times

Shell says it expects to lose up to $5 billion for pulling out of Russia.

In an update to investors, the oil company projected a huge financial hit from its exposure to Russia.

Shell says Russia exit has already cost $5 billion

LONDON (AP) — Shell says its decision to pull out of Russia in response to the country’s invasion of Ukraine has already cost the international energy giant as much as $5 billion.

The reduced value of Russian assets, credit losses and “onerous” contract terms will cut earnings for the first three months of the year by between $4 billion and $5 billion, London-based Shell said Thursday.

Shell Will Have Difficulty Paying for Russian Gas Due to U.K. Sanctions

Shell Will Have Difficulty Paying for Russian Gas Due to U.K. Sanctions

  • Shell is prevented from dealing with Gazprombank by U.K. law
  • Gazprom is looking at ways to solve Shell’s payment issue

Shell Plc may have difficulty paying for Russian gas supplies this month because the Kremlin wants payments transfered through U.K.-sanctioned Gazprombank JSC, according to two people familiar with discussions in Russia.

Gazprom PJSC, the single largest provider of natural gas to the European continent, now only accepts ruble payments for supplies of the fuel to so-called ‘unfriendly’ states, including the European Union and the U.K. Shell has at least two long-term contracts that would be affected by this rule, jointly equivalent to about 1.5% of Gazprom’s annual exports to key foreign clients. read more
