Saudis see no need to extend OPEC deal beyond six months By Anthony DiPaola, Mahmoud Habboush, Sam Wilkin on 1/16/2017 ABU DHABI (Bloomberg) -- OPEC probably won’t need to extend a deal it reached with other crude producers to cut output, given the level of their compliance with the reductions and the outlook for an increase in global demand, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih said. The re-balancing of the oil market should take place by the end of the first half of the year, Al-Falih told reporters during an energy event in the United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi. Demand will pick up in the summer, and OPEC wants to make sure markets are well-supplied, he said. “We don’t think it’s necessary, given the level of compliance we have seen and given the expectations of demand,” Al-Falih said Monday. “The re-balancing which started slowly in 2016 will have its full impact by the first half. Of course, there are many variables that can come into play between now and June, and at that time we will be able to reassess.” Saudi Arabia is due to meet fellow members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries in May at their bi-annual meeting in Vienna to assess the market and the group’s production policy. OPEC states will also gather with major producers outside the group later this month in the Austrian capital to monitor their compliance with the production cuts, which aim to reduce inventories and shore up prices. Benchmark Brent crude futures were trading 10 cents higher at $55.55 in London at 9:54 a.m. Avoiding Shortage OPEC’s decision on Nov. 30 to cut output reversed a two-year policy that let members pump all they wanted to try to maximize sales—a strategy that had contributed to a worldwide glut. The producer group, together with 11 other countries including Russia, is seeking to reduce supply by about 1.8 MMbopd. The cuts took effect on Jan. 1 and are to last through June. “All players have indicated their willingness to extend, if necessary,” Al-Falih said. “Based on my judgement today, I think it’s unlikely that we will need to continue. Demand is going to pick up in the summer, and we want to make sure the markets continue to be supplied well. We don’t want to create a shortage or a squeeze, so the extension will only happen if there’s a need, and if there’s a need, we will do it. ” Saudi Arabia has cut production to less than 10 MMbopd, below its targeted level, and is currently producing at a 22-month low, Al-Falih said Jan. 12 in Abu Dhabi. The world’s biggest oil exporter had agreed to trim output by 486,000 bpd to 10.058 MMbpd as part of the global accord on supply. “We will strictly adhere to our commitment and be at our cap, or as is the case now, slightly below it,” Al-Falih said Monday.

Oil Prices Recover Some Losses--Update 06/01/2017 12:42pm Dow Jones News Shell A (LSE:RDSA) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Friday 6 January 2017 Click Here for more Shell A Charts. By Kevin Baxter and Jenny W. Hsu Crude oil prices were up Friday, clawing back some of the early morning losses after the U.S. published mixed data that showed a big decline in oil stocks, but a build in oil products in storage. The March contract for Brent crude, the global benchmark, was up 0.6% to $57.22 a barrel while its U.S. counterpart West Texas Intermediate gained 0.52% to $54.03 for February deliveries. Prices have been buoyed this morning by the decision by Royal Dutch Shell PLC to close down the 140,000-barrel-a-day Trans-Niger Bonny Light pipeline. The company cited a fire as the reason for the shutdown, but the situation highlights the continuing struggle in Nigeria with attacks on the country's oil infrastructure. "The Nigerian government is reported restarting to pay peace-allowance to militants. This will probably ease things but it will take time before world refiners regain confidence about the reliability of Nigerian supplies," said oil analyst Olivier Jakob from the Switzerland-based Petromatrix. Oil prices had been choppy overnight and early morning after the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported a significant drawdown of 7.1 million barrels from stockpiles in the week of Dec. 30 due to lower imports, upending the market's expectations for an increase or a smaller decrease. However, the large growth in distillates and gasoline stocks--of 10.1 million barrels and 8.3 million barrels respectively--is considered bearish and a reflection of poor demand, said analysts at Société; Générale. The data also showed U.S. production of crude grew by 4,000 barrels a day in the same week, a figure that is likely to rise in the postholiday period. As U.S. production continues to creep up, members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries are starting to pull back on output to meet the 32.5 million barrels a day ceiling pledged at the cartel's Nov. 30 meeting. Saudi Arabia, the de facto leader of the cartel, took the lion's share of the cut. The Wall Street Journal Thursday reported the kingdom made good on its pledge by cutting its January daily production by 468,000 barrels. "Saudi Aramco has made it clear that it plans to cuts production and this will hopefully convince other producers to fully comply with the promised cuts," said Edward Bell, an analyst from the Dubai-based Emirates NBD bank. Some market observers believe prices could reach $60-$70 a barrel later this quarter if the cuts are fully enforced, though OPEC has a spotty record of adhering to past production quotas. Nymex reformulated gasoline blendstock for February--the benchmark gasoline contract-fell 0.16% to $1.6395 a gallon. ICE gas oil for January changed hands at $498.25 a metric ton, up 0.91%.

Share on Facebook Broker tips: Shell, Bovis Homes, housebuilders Barratt Developments Quote more Price: 483.90 Chg: 18.90 Chg %: 4.06% Date: 16:59 FTSE 100 Quote Price: 7,189.74 Chg: 11.85 Chg %: 0.17% Date: 16:59 (ShareCast News) - RBC Capital Markets upgraded Royal Dutch Shell to 'outperform' from 'sector perform', keeping the price target at 2,500p. The bank said the recent OPEC and non-OPEC supply deals have put the oil market on a much firmer footing, removing some of its tail-risk concerns for the oil giant. "Looking ahead, we see the potential for strongly improving cash flow generation, while in the near term, we believe net debt should begin falling from its peak." RBC said its previous concerns about Shell were about a more prolonged period of lower oil and gas pricing, which could mean an extremely tough divestment market alongside weaker organic cash flows. "The recent OPEC/non-OPEC supply deals have effectively provided an environment where we believe this is unlikely, while we are also seeing signs of improving macro conditions for European gas, where Shell has the second highest exposure in the peer group." In addition, RBC argued that Shell is past the point of peak net debt and its balance sheet will improve going forward, giving the potential for the dividend yield to contract. "Shell recently noted the company is working on 16 different asset disposals, all of which have a value greater than $500m. On our numbers, we expect $2.7bn divestments to be cashed in next quarter, which should help Shell de-leverage and start to reduce its $77bn net debt figure." RBC reckons Shell can outperform its peers if it can continue to deliver on the divestment programme.
Shell Seeks to Streamline in 2017 -- WSJ 04/01/2017 8:02am Dow Jones News Shell A (LSE:RDSA) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Wednesday 4 January 2017 Click Here for more Shell A Charts. Executing asset sales is crucial for reducing debt and retaining shareholder confidence By Sarah Kent LONDON -- Royal Dutch Shell PLC has a goal for 2017: Slimming down. The British-Dutch oil-and-gas giant bulked up in February with the roughly $50 billion acquisition of BG Group PLC, giving Shell a dominant position in liquefied natural gas and some of the world's most prized offshore oil fields in Brazil. It also saddled the company with a mountain of debt -- $78 billion at the end of the third quarter -- that is higher than peers such as Exxon Mobil Corp. The company helped sell investors and analysts on the value of the BG deal by promising to unload $30 billion in assets from 2016 through 2018. Not only would it help pay down some of that debt, but it would prune some unloved assets and shore up confidence that the company could keep paying dividends and provide cash for a share buyback that could begin as soon as 2017. But in 2016, Shell announced details of asset sales amounting to only about $5 billion -- short of the $6 billion to $8 billion the company had said it would reach last year. As recently as November , Shell's Chief Financial Officer Simon Henry said the company expected to hit that target. The company declined to comment. Shell has said it is likely to back-end its divestment program and is more concerned with making sure it gets good value for the sales. Executing more deals is crucial for retaining shareholder confidence in Shell's ability to keep paying its dividend and reduce its debt levels. Its debt-to-equity ratio of 29% is higher than its four major competitors: Exxon, Chevron Corp., BP PLC and Total SA. "Shell's high net debt and the slow progress against its divestment plan are the last major concerns for investors, with the view that it remains the key risk for a dividend cut," said research firm Sanford C. Bernstein in a note. Deal making was slow across the energy sector in 2016, when oil prices often were below $45 a barrel. With Brent crude, the international benchmark, now hovering around $56 a barrel, there is hope among investors and analysts that Shell can start selling off unwanted assets for a fair price. "This is a three-year plan and we're starting to see the oil price start to recover, which is helpful," said Simon Gergel, chief investment officer for U.K. equities at Allianz Global Investors. "I would be pretty confident they can get a long way down the road in the three years." Deal making in the sector already seems to be picking up, with BP announcing a flurry of agreements in the past month. Shell was on its own year-end spree, announcing the completion of a tricky plan to sell its stake in a Japanese refining joint venture for $1.4 billion and an agreement to give up its Australian aviation-fuels business for $250 million. Those are positive steps but still came in shy of its $6 billion to $8 billion range for 2016. The company has said it is already working on 16 asset sales with a value of more than $500 million and is expected to close some of them early this year. That is likely to include a package of fields in the North Sea worth about $3 billion and assets in Gabon worth nearly $1 billion, according to a person familiar with the situation. Shell is reviewing whether to sell operations in New Zealand and Thailand, among other places. In Iraq, the company is in discussions to sell its stake in the West Qurna oil field to a Japanese consortium, people familiar with the matter said. Many of the assets Shell sold in 2016 were from its refining and marketing division, which has proved more resilient to the oil-price slump and an easier place for deal making. But deals for exploration and production assets have proved harder and could remain difficult even if oil prices hover around $55 to $60 a barrel in 2017 -- more than 20% higher than 2016's average. In the energy sector, buyers and sellers in many cases are still struggling to find a balance on the question of pricing assets, according to analysts. Iain Reid, senior oil-and-gas analyst at Macquarie, said Shell seemed determined to sell at a price of its choosing, which could push the completion of its asset-sale plan beyond 2018. "Shell is not prepared to sacrifice too much," Mr. Reid said. --Michael Amon contributed to this article.

By Sarah Kent and Rory Gallivan LONDON-- Royal Dutch Shell PLC on Thursday said Simon Henry will step down as chief financial officer next year after he steered the Anglo-Dutch oil major through the acquisition of BG Group and a tumultuous period of low oil prices. Mr. Henry will be replaced by Jessica Uhl, who is currently finance chief for the company's Integrated Gas business--a core focus following on from the deal with BG, which bolstered Shell's already sizable position in the liquefied natural gas business. Mr. Henry will remain in his current position until March 9 and will be available to assist with the transition until June, Shell said Thursday. The handover ends a varied career of more than 30 years at the company and over seven as CFO, culminating with the execution of Shell's roughly $50 billion acquisition of BG at a time of sharply falling prices. Ms. Uhl joined Shell in 2004, following stints at Enron and Citigroup. She's a rare American appointment to Shell's executive level, which has historically been dominated by British and Dutch individuals. Rory Gallivan contributed to this article.

Royal Dutch Shell should be preferred over BP, says Deutsche Bank 10:06 06 Dec 2016 Analyst Lucas Hermann said the risk-reward ratio is already favourable for Shell. Shell logo DB set a price target of £24.50 a share An influential City oil team favours Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSA) above BP Plc (LON:BP) in the hunt for value among the majors. Number-one rated Deutsche Bank says the decision by the major producing nations to rein back output only strengthens the ‘buy’ case for the Anglo-Dutch giant. It set a price target of £24.50 a share and is a fan of the 6% dividend yield. Analyst Lucas Hermann said the risk-reward ratio is already favourable, adding he is heartened at the way the company’s disposal programme is going. “Given the depth and quality of the Shell resource base the questions has never really been the potential for tomorrow’s portfolio; rather the extent to which legacy might hold it back,” the Deutsche number cruncher said in a note to clients. “With a greater dependence on the macro than peer both to balance its cash flows and heal an ailing balance sheet, OPEC support for commodity pricing can, in our opinion, only aid the investment case. Sure there is much to be done both to slim down and to repair.” BP, by contrast, is weighed down by the continued financial fall-out from the Deepwater Horizon disaster, referred to by the City as Macondo. Restating his ‘hold’ advice and 506p target price, Hermann said: “Where the portfolio feels more robust, ongoing large Macondo payments continue to eat into cash flow. “Transient perhaps but until we see their moderation concerns on the BP cash cycle look set to remain.” The Square Mile is split on the outlook for BP. Of the 15 analysts logged as following the stock, nine are ‘buyers’. The remainder are in Deutsche’s camp as holding ‘neutral’; recommendations. For Shell, the picture is markedly different. Ten out of 12 analysts are positive on the shares, while one is a ‘sell’ and another ‘neutral’;. Ian_55ae0ddd437b7.jpg Ian Lyall

Oil prices rose for a third straight day on Friday, after OPEC's agreement to cut output for the first time in eight years. U.S. crude futures rose 62 cents, or 1.21%, to $51.62 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, its highest settlement since July, 2015. Brent, the global benchmark, gained 52 cents, or 0.96%, to $54.46 on London's ICE Futures Exchange. Crude prices have surged since the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries agreed to pull back their output by 1.2 million barrels a day. "At this point I don't think too many people are willing to stand in front of it," said Ric Navy, senior vice president for energy futures at RJ O'Brien & Associates. Oil's advances stalled overnight, however, with U.S. crude futures pulling back to $50.18 as investors took profits following the dramatic rally. But crude prices resumed their march higher later, as the market looked set to hold on to most of its recent gains. U.S. crude futures gained 12.2% this week -- the largest weekly percentage gain since 2009. But market participants say crude's rally could be running out of steam. "I think it's getting close to the end of its rope," said Mark Waggoner, president of Excel Futures. "I see it getting tired and falling back. I just don't see this as a game changer when they're pumping as much as they are." The deal to cut production is expected to take effect in January, and participating oil-producing nations will reassess in six months with an option to extend the accord for another six months. If the deal is fully observed, it could shift the market into a deficit as early as the first half of next year. Brent prices could move higher to average between $55 and $60 a barrel in 2017, said Simon Flowers, chief analyst at consultancy Wood Mackenzie. "However, this does depend on OPEC being very careful to meet the terms of the agreement," he cautioned. Skepticism over members' compliance with production quotas remains, as members have cheated their quotas in the past by underreporting or producing beyond their allotted limits. Moreover, the OPEC supply action could cause some oil producers to lose market share as oil producers who aren't participating in the deal ramp up their output. "It is a dangerous game that Saudi Arabia is playing," said Michael Cohen, the head of energy commodities research at Barclays. "Should prices rise too high then the amount of shale oil that comes into the market will eventually start to cut into their market share." The U.S. put three more oil rigs back to work in the latest week, bringing total active rigs to 477, the most since late January, according to Baker Hughes. Gasoline futures gained 1.21 cents, or 0.78%, to $1.5591 a gallon. Diesel futures rose 1.02 cents, or 0.62%, to $1.6581 a gallon. --Jenny W. Hsu and Dan Molinski contributed to this article.
