Venezuela says Shell to provide $400 million financing for oil venture

Royal Dutch Shell Plc will provide some $400 million in financing to boost oil output at Venezuela’s Petroregional del Lago, a joint venture with state-run PDVSA, the South American country announced on Tuesday.

Petroregional, which operates the Urdaneta oilfield in Venezuela’s western Maracaibo Lake, produces between 30,000 barrels per day and 35,000 bpd, according to Shell’s website. Shell holds a 40 percent stake in the venture.

The agreement aims to increase total production to 344 million barrels between the 2017 and 2035 period, PDVSA said in a statement, or an average of around 52,400 bpd. read more

Shell re-enters coal with swaps trading

By Jacqueline Cowhig

LONDON | Thu May 17, 2012 12:16pm BST

May 17 (Reuters) – Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Ltd this month resumed trading in coal derivatives more than a decade after parent Royal Dutch Shell exited the coal business and sold its mines, sources close to the company said.

Shell declined to comment.

Shell actively trades power, gas and carbon so the move back into coal fills a gap in the energy markets it trades and will enable more effective spread-trading and hedging, they said. read more

Caribbean island Curacao faces oil refinery dilemma

Shell remained on the island for decades and became a major employer, especially in the 1950s and 1960s when the number of jobs at the refinery topped 10,000.

Caesar Chávez drives campaign of oil seizures

Some 19 companies - including BP, Chevron, Shell, StatoilHydro, and Total - have expressed interest in bidding for the Carabobo projects that could collectively produce more than 800,000 bpd, and require investments of up to $30bn.

Venezuela’s ‘Shell’ Game

Similarly, Shell will invest in a billion-dollar pipeline in Venezuela if it expects a billion-dollar payoff down the road. For Shell, this requires a leap of faith--a pipeline can't be taken apart and reassembled in Texas or Alaska if things don't work out under Chavez. It's in Venezuela for good, unlike a truck that can be driven across the border to deliver packages in Colombia or Peru instead. Once the expense has been incurred, or the investment has been made, what's to stop Chavez from sending in troops to nationalize Shell's assets, or jacking up the royalty fees that Shell pays to the government?

Big Oil Can’t Resist the Chavez Charm

You'd think BP or Royal Dutch Shell, for instance, would be especially hesitant about cozying up to the strongman again. After all, BP saw one of its executives flee Russia to escape trumped up charges while having a power-sharing agreement forced on it. Shell was forced to sell its Sakhalin Island interests to Russian gas giant Gazprom. Such are the dangers of signing over your soul to the devil.

OPEC Plans Drastic Cut In Oil Production

Royal Dutch Shell has announced that it will delay some of its planned expansion of expensive oil sands projects in Canada. Rob J. Routs, executive director of oil products and chemicals and a member of the board at Royal Dutch Shell, said that reaching the target of 700,000 barrels a day would be "pushed out at least two to four years."

An Ode to Oil

Oil is, after all, a primary source of man-made global warming, while spillages and drilling have sometimes inflicted lethal environmental damage. Despite the sharp falls of recent months, dramatic price rises have also underwritten every postwar global recession, including the current economic malaise.

The bravest woman in oil

Ann Pickard, Shell’s chief in Nigeria, knows the true meaning of oil crisis.

By Jon Birger, senior writer

NOVEMBER 21, 2008: 7:13 AM ET

(Fortune Magazine) — Ann Pickard’s title sounds normal enough – she’s regional executive vice president in Africa for Royal Dutch Shell’s exploration and production division. But there’s nothing normal whatsoever about Pickard’s job. Indeed, as Shell’s top official in Nigeria, Pickard may well hold the most dangerous executive post within the oil industry.

A 53-year-old Wyoming native who helped organize battered women’s shelters before entering the energy biz in the late 1980s – “making $7,000 a year doesn’t quite cut it,” she says of her former life – Pickard is the first woman to run Shell’s African operation. She talks a lot about reducing accidents, and by accidents, she’s not talking about the industrial variety. read more

From boom to glut

If sustained, the lower price level will have further repercussions. Big producers such as Russia and Venezuela will struggle to exert political influence through energy policy. Resource nationalism, where oil-rich governments impose tougher terms on independent companies and – notably in the case of Shell in Russia – force them to cede control of assets, may soon be a spent force.
