Screen Shot 2014-01-31 at 00.40.27SHELL FRAUD AND SCAM ALERT: This is not about the way Royal Dutch Shell Plc executive directors, including Ben van Beurden and Simon Henry (right), have held back information from Shell shareholders until eventually being advised by lawyers that Shell must issue a profits warning, but about scam artists using Shell’s name to front bogus job recruitment schemes, fake lotteries, sham business propositions etc. Some might say there is little difference – ask OSSL in Ireland who accuse Shell directors of deceiving them. I receive enquiries almost every day from people trying to fathom whether purported communications from Shell are genuine. I am not going to publish them because it might give legitimacy to names and contact information used by the fraudsters. Instead, I am continuing to refer people to the Shell Fraud and Scam alert on the Shell.com website. Wonder when certain Shell executive director names will be posted? read more

Shell to Start Chinese Shale Gas Project Development From 2014

By Eduard Gismatullin on November 15, 2012

Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA), Europe’s largest oil company, said its shale gas project in China will require billions of dollars in investment from 2014 before it can supply the domestic market.

Along with China National Petroleum Corp., Shell plans to take a final investment decision by the end of next year after carrying out exploration work at the Fushun-Yongchuan block in the Sichuan basin. The partners have so far drilled 24 wells and plan a further 14 next year, said Maarten Wetselaar, executive vice president of Shell Upstream International. read more

Australia LNG Boom Threatened by U.S. Shale Exporters

By Eduard Gismatullin – Apr 26, 2012 1:10 PM GMT+0100

Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) and PetroChina Co. are designing a liquefied natural gas plant in Australia with capacity of about 9 million metric tons a year that Deutsche Bank AG says will cost more than $20 billion.

Arrow Energy Ltd., the partners’ Brisbane-based venture, plans to decide on whether to invest in the project by the end of next year, Shell Chief Financial Officer Simon Henry said.

“There have been and are ongoing discussions between partners as to whether gas can potentially be taken from one producer through other peoples’ facilities,” Henry said today on a conference call. “If there’s a deal there to be done, we’ll do the deal, if not then we move on” with building the joint venture’s own LNG plant in Queensland, he said. read more

Shell steps up gas production, despite North American hurdles

Shawn Mccarthy — GLOBAL ENERGY REPORTER,

OTTAWA— From Monday’s Globe and Mail 19 March 2012

Royal Dutch Shell PLC is doubling-down on its natural gas bet, despite a depressed North American market that has seen many producers shut in production.

The international oil company is the world’s premier gas company, producing and shipping more of the cleaner-burning fuel, in more markets, than any of its global competitors.

It is leading the charge on the twin challenges of natural gas – the difficulty in transporting it and the glut in North America – by pursuing liquefied natural gas exports to premium markets, and by investing in technology that processes raw gas into far more valuable liquid or chemical products or pioneers it use as a transportation fuel. read more

Shell scared away by British tax?

April 29, 2011

LONDON, April 29 (UPI) — Royal Dutch Shell suggested it might pull out of developments in the North Sea because of a tax increase imposed by the British government, a director said.

British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne imposed a duty on oil and gas producers in an effort to take advantage of massive oil profits reported by international energy companies.

Oil and gas developers posted record first quarter profits as energy prices soar in response to global economic recovery, a weak U.S. dollar and unrest in some of the Middle East’s largest oil-producing nations. read more

Shell make £4.1bn…and axe North Sea fields

SHELL is slashing investment in the North Sea over a Budget Day tax hike – despite making £1.9million an hour.

The giant yesterday revealed the rise meant it was now “uneconomic” to develop smaller UK oil and gas fields.

Shell’s quarterly profits were up forty per cent and totalled £4.1billion.

Chief finance officer Simon Henry said the group would only invest in two new projects. Other work has gone. He said: “The irony is we were just beginning to look at what opportunities there were in the North Sea again. We hadn’t worked up the projects yet and that work now stops.” read more

Shell may have to sell North Sea assets after tax raid

Published Date: 29 April 2011 By Martin Flanagan City editor
ROYAL Dutch Shell warned yesterday that it may have to sell some assets in the North Sea and reduce investment in the region because of the Chancellor’s tax raid and higher industry decommissioning costs in the Budget. Simon Henry, chief financial officer, revealed that the changes could cost the group $1 billion (£600m) in extra charges, a similar sum to that facing rival BP.

He said that Shell had taken a $60 million hit in the first quarter of this year on the extra tax levy on North Sea production and would face a further $150m impact over the rest of 2011. There will be another $400m charge in 2012.

In addition, reduced tax breaks for decommissioning rigs was likely to lead to another charge of up to $500m.

“It’s a fact of the business we are in. Not just governments but suppliers look for a share of higher revenues,” Henry said.

He added that big Shell interests in the North Sea, such as the Clair and Schiehallion fields to the west of Shetland that are operated by BP, were unlikely to be affected by the tax raid. read more

Shell Upstream Boss Malcolm Brinded: Mr Overpromise and Underdelivery

Slide21

COMMENTS BY “OUTSIDER”

(Please note some pdf links contain multi-page docs and may take a while to download)

The Bloomberg article of September 25th seems to echo a very familiar concept from the Watts/Enron era – promises, promises and more promises. But where is the additional production promised by Brinded repeatedly over the past few years?

A remarkably prescient presentation entitled “overpromise underdelivery” was published on this site a few years ago. We seem to be repeating the process. Shell is shedding staff precisely because it does not have enough projects to justify current staffing levels. In the medium term a lack of development projects can only lead to a decline in production. read more
