Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Extract from a Rigzone article published Wednesday 30 July 2014

In 2008, Shell announced it would partner with Qatar Petroleum and build Pearl GTL in order to produce cleaner-burning diesel and kerosene, base oils for top-tier lubricants, a chemical feedstock called naphtha (used to make plastics) and normal paraffin, which is used to produce detergents. Today, the plant in Ras Laffan Industrial City, 80km north of Doha, Qatar, is the largest gas-to-liquids plant in the world.

Voser Says Shell to Quicken Disposals to Offset Spending: Energy

Screen Shot 2013-11-13 at 07.38.22Royal Dutch Shell Plc is gearing up to sell about $15 billion of assets as Europe’s largest oil company accelerates disposals to offset the cost of projects from Australia to Canada. While Voser didn’t put a figure on disposals, Shell needs to raise at least $15 billion over the next two years to meet its financial targets, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) is gearing up to sell about $15 billion of assets as Europe’s largest oil company accelerates disposals to offset the cost of projects from Australia to Canada.

Asset sales will allow Shell’s net capital investment, spending on projects adjusted for acquisitions and disposals, to fall from this year’s record $45 billion, Chief Executive Officer Peter Voser said in an interview. A raft of new projects coming on stream gives room to sell oil and natural gas fields, he said. read more

Shell still No.1 on Fortune Global 500 List 2013

Screen Shot 2013-07-09 at 15.50.47 Screen Shot 2013-07-09 at 15.51.35 Rank: 1 Previous rank: 1 CEO: Peter R. Voser Employees: 87,000

Last year, Shell held the number one spot on the Fortune Global 500 list and was pushing to drill in the Arctic. This past March, the U.S. government blocked the company from drilling until it can provide a more convincing plan for exploring the region. The company has also paused another risky endeavor — one of its pipelines in Nigeria that caught fire this summer. Shell shut it down and began investigating the cause of the fire in late June.

Shell, however, remains strong. Its earnings for the first quarter of 2013 beat analyst expectations. Despite problems with certain drilling projects, the company continues to rake in money from various assets, one of which is its profitable Pearl gas-to-liquid plant in Qatar. read more

Shell mulls more efficient, but still costly GTL mega-project on US Gulf

London (Platts)–28Jun2013/902 am EDT/1302 GMT

Shell’s hopes for a new gas-to-liquids mega project on the US Gulf Coast would benefit from much-improved process efficiencies, but any resulting cost savings could be limited by the need to build most of the plant outside the US, Shell officials said this week.

Shell has improved its proprietary GTL technology to the point where it can achieve 50% gains in throughput volumes compared to its giant Pearl GTL plant in Qatar which came on stream in 2011, according to one of Shell’s top GTL scientists. read more

Shell Profit Increases on Income From Liquefied Natural Gas

By Eduard Gismatullin on November 01, 2012

Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA)’s third-quarter profit expanded 2.3 percent after Europe’s biggest oil company generated increased earnings from liquefied natural gas.

Net income rose to $7.14 billion from $6.98 billion a year earlier, Shell said today in a statement. Excluding one-time items and inventory changes, profit was $6.6 billion, beating the $6.3 billion average estimate of 13 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg.

Earnings “benefited from the increased contribution from integrated gas, which included an additional dividend from an LNG venture,” said Shell, based in The Hague. LNG sales gained 4 percent to 4.97 million metric tons from a year ago, mainly reflecting the contribution from the Pluto project in Australia. read more

Shell has learned from its Pearl GTL project and costs can be cut: Voser

Houston (Platts)–7Mar2012/519 pm EST/2219 GMT

Lessons learned in the construction and operation of the Pearl gas-to-liquids project in Qatar will allow for a reduction in the “capital intensity” of future projects, including any developed in the US, Royal Dutch Shell CEO Peter Voser said Wednesday.

In remarks at a press briefing and in a public question-and-answer session at the CERAWeek conference in Houston, Voser said Shell is “very pleased” with the multi-billion-dollar plant, whose two trains of 70,000 b/d each are five times the size of the small-scale train the company operated in Malaysia for many years. A second plant at Qatar is in the final stages of construction. read more

Shell Aims for ‘New Nigeria’ as $19 Billion Qatar Plant Starts

BusinessWeek Logo

By Stanley Reed and Robert Tuttle

March 4 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc spent $19 billion, triple the original estimate, to build the world’s largest gas-to-liquids plant. Now, it’s pay-off time and the company says the project may generate $6 billion a year.

Shell needs the plant, known as Pearl, to bolster output, which fell for a seventh year in 2009 in part because rebel violence hampered oil ventures in Nigeria. Qatar, the arid Gulf state that’s become the world’s biggest exporter of gas on ships, may account for 10 percent of the company’s production after Pearl and a liquefied natural gas project start deliveries next year. read more

A Gamble in Qatar: Royal Dutch Shell is making a huge — and risky — bet on technology that transforms natural gas to diesel fuel

Shell started experimenting with GTL technology during the energy crisis of the 1970s, when it began to search for an alternative to gasoline. In 1993, Shell opened its first GTL demonstration plant in Bintulu, Malaysia. The project was derailed in 1997 by a massive explosion caused by a profusion of carbon molecules in the air as a result of extensive forest fires in Indonesia. It took three years to repair the damage.
