Shell strikes shale gas in China

By Tom Bergin

DOHA | Tue Dec 6, 2011 4:29am EST

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell Plc has found shale gas in China, a development that could cap imports in a market natural gas producers are hoping will drive demand.

An official with Shell’s partner, PetroChina (601857.SS), a unit of the country’s top energy group, state-owned CNPC, said drilling results from two wells Shell drilled had been positive.

“Shell has two vertical wells and they got very good primary production,” Professor Yuzhang Liu, Vice president of Petrochina’s Research Institute of Petroleum Exploration and Development (RIPED), said in an interview at the sidelines of the World Petroleum Congress (WPC) in Doha. read more

Shell Is ‘Welcome Barbarian’ in China’s Shale Gas

The big question is: Can Shell keep riding this tiger? What prevents PetroChina’s parent, CNPC, from exploiting the Western producer for what it wants and then tossing it aside or perhaps even taking it over?

Shell’s China Moves: Can Shell keep riding this tiger?

The Anglo-Dutch energy giant and state-owned PetroChina have teamed up to get gas out of the ground in China—and to tap new sources of energy worldwide

The hilltop city of Yulin, about 500 miles southwest of Beijing, was once a strong point in the defensive wall that protected the Chinese heartland from the tribes to the north. An ancient fortress survives in the old part of the city, the Chinese characters for “Suppress the Barbarians” carved over its gate. Today, Yulin’s a boomtown in the oil- and gas-rich Ordos Basin. In the streets not far from the fortress walls, where men sell roasted goat heads from carts, young boys hand out brochures for apartment towers built for newly wealthy oil workers and coal miners. If fresh characters were carved into the old fortress gates now, they might say “Resource Barbarians Welcome!” Or they might simply be a pair of corporate logos: one for PetroChina (PTR), the publicly traded wing of CNPC, China’s largest oil company, and a second for its foreign partner, Royal Dutch Shell, the second-largest Western oil company. read more

Cnooc Stock Arcs to New High

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: Cnooc Stock Arcs to New High

“Four years ago, the Australian government blocked an effort by Shell to take control of Woodside on grounds it wasn’t in the national interest and limited Shell to a 34% stake. Analysts assume a takeover by Cnooc would run into similar obstacles.” Lack of Unocal Strain Cheers Investors, but Old Problems Linger

By MATT POTTINGER
Staff Reporter of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
August 15, 2005; Page C12

BEIJING — Its attempt to purchase Unocal has failed and its expansion strategy appears stuck.

So why is Cnooc performing so well on the stock market?

The share price of China’s No. 3 oil and natural gas producer touched an all-time high last week, closing Friday at HK$6.05 (78 U.S. cents) on the Hong Kong stock exchange. The stock has been buoyed by soaring crude-oil prices and by the removal of uncertainty surrounding Cnooc’s $18.5 billion bid for Unocal, analysts say. Cnooc withdrew the bid this month amid fierce opposition in the U.S. Congress, paving the way for rival bidder Chevron to acquire the El Segundo, California, oil company. read more

Bid Puts New Focus on China’s Oils

BARRON’SOnline: Bid Puts New Focus on China’s Oils

Monday 27 June 2005

By LESLIE P. NORTON

Emerging Markets

EVER SINCE ITS INITIAL public offering in 2001, China National Offshore Oil Corp., or Cnooc (ticker: CEO), has traded at a premium to the better- known PetroChina (PTR), notwithstanding billionaire Warren Buffett’s stake in the latter.

Growth prospects for Cnooc, which explores offshore for oil and gas, were perceived as superior. PetroChina was saddled with mature fields and difficult-to-extract reserves, as well as thousands of gas stations subject to price controls. The other Chinese oil stock, downstream play Sinopec (SNP), historically has traded at a discount to both. read more

Sinopec denies quitting project

Financial Times: Sinopec denies quitting project

“The company also announced a $187m joint venture with Royal Dutch/Shell to operate 500 petrol stations in eastern China.”

By Enid Tsui in Hong Kong

Published: August 31 2004

Chen Tonghai, chairman of Sinopec, one of China’s big three oil companies, yesterday denied that his company had withdrawn from the controversial west-east gas pipeline project in China.

The statement, made at a press conference in Hong Kong, contradicted an August 5 filing by rival Petrochina, which claimed that the joint venture framework agreement signed by all potential investors in the project, including Royal Dutch/Shell and Exxon-Mobil, had been terminated. read more
