Shell and Ecopetrol to develop Colombia offshore gas discoveries Published by Nicholas Woodroof, Assistant Editor Oilfield Technology, Monday, 10 February 2020 09:00 Ecopetrol and Shell EP Offshore Ventures Limited have signed an agreement whereby Shell will acquire a 50% stake in the Fuerte Sur, Purple Angel and COL-5 blocks, located in the deep waters of the Colombian Caribbean. Following the agreement, Shell will assume the operation of the blocks. The parties intend to drill a boundary hole in the area at the end of 2021, once the respective approvals of the authorities are filled, and to carry out the first production test. If these activities were positive, the discoveries could be developed and thus expand the gas supply for the country in the medium-term. “This agreement we made with a top-level ally such as Shell, recognised for its experience in ultra-deep water operations and in the development and commercialisation of high-impact gas projects, will allow us to check the production capacity of these reservoirs and their possible future development We are very satisfied with this alliance that will lead us to increase the reserves and production of an environmentally friendly fuel, key in the energy transition, and strengthen the strategic relationship with Shell, with which we have already been working in the Brazil Presal and in the Gulf of Mexico (United States),” said Felipe Bayón, president of Ecopetrol. “This position is a significant step for Shell in Colombia and in South America. The agreement brings together the regional knowledge of Ecopetrol, coupled with Shell's experience in deep water and integral solutions of Natural Gas. We have collaborated with Ecopetrol on multiple occasions since its creation, and we are very happy to continue demonstrating our commitment of more than 84 years working with Colombia in its energy resources, ”said Ana María Duque, president of Shell in Colombia. Since 2019 Ecopetrol had undertaken the search for a new world-class operator ally for these blocks, after the previous operator ceded its stake. The agreement signed by Ecopetrol and Shell is subject to the respective approvals by the National Hydrocarbons Agency and other transaction conditions of this nature.

Royal Dutch Shell: No Need To Worry Over Proven Reserve Life And Dividend Remains Safe Despite Soft Fourth Quarter Results Feb. 5, 2020 8:57 AM ET | About: Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.A), RDS.B Daniel Thurecht Daniel Thurecht Long-term horizon, contrarian, oil & gas, industrials (2,246 followers) Summary Unfortunately for shareholders in Royal Dutch Shell, results for the fourth quarter of 2019 were quite soft and thus saw their share price sink near 5% at one point. Although their shrinking reserve life is not an ideal situation, there are two main reasons why this is not as concerning as it may initially appear. Management is taking sensible actions with their capital allocation through keep capital expenditure low and slowing their share buybacks. These steps should help ensure their cherished dividend payments continue well into the future, although their prospects for future dividend growth is minimal at the moment. Introduction Recently the European oil and gas giant, Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) (RDS.B), reported results for the fourth quarter of 2019. Unfortunately for shareholders these results saw net income fall 83% year on year and thus were not received particularly well by the market, sending the share price down nearly 5% at one point. This article provides my commentary on several key topics and the outlook for shareholder returns. Reserve Life One concerning aspect that has been mentioned was their sixth consecutive decline in their proven oil and gas reserve life, which now stands at only approximately eight years. Whilst this is certainly not an ideal situation, there are a couple of reasons why it is not as alarming as stating that their “…status quo on reserves would put it out of business in eight years” indicates. The first reason being that this assumes a zero reserve replacement ratio, which history indicates is very unlikely to eventuate. During the last three years their reserve replacement ratio has on average been 48% or 90% if the impacts of acquisitions and divestitures are excluded. If an investor assumes the lower reserve replacement ratio of 48% will continue going forward, this indicates that their reserves would actually last approximately twice as long. Naturally the thought of their reserves actually lasting sixteen years does not sound nearly as alarming and thus indicates they have considerably more time to address this issue. Whilst their future reserve replacement ratio may differ, considering this occurred during a period of industry wide reduced exploration expenditure and was heavily impacted by divestitures, it seems realistic to assume that this could continue at least in the medium-term. Personally I believe their reserve replacement ratio that excludes the impacts of acquisitions and divestitures is a more suitable way to view their performance as inorganic decisions such as these can work in either direction, which leads into the second reason. Providing they maintain a strong financial position and thus access to capital markets they should be able to acquire reserves in the future as necessary or alternatively further diversify their earnings into other areas, such as renewable energy. Cash Flows, Capital Expenditure Guidance & Dividend Coverage Although the headline figures indicating that their operating cash flow decreased from $22.021b in the fourth quarter of 2018 to only $10.267b for the equivalent time period of 2019 sounds dramatic on the surface, the underlying situation was not nearly as severe. If the impacts of working capital changes are removed from both results, their operating cash flow only decreased slightly from $12.9b to $12.3b. Considering the pressure they are currently facing from not only weak oil and gas prices but also downstream margins, it was reassuring to see capital expenditure guidance towards the lower end of their $24b to $29b range. This is a positive indicator for their capital allocation as it should strike an appropriate balance between ensuring their financial position remains healthy without underinvesting in their future. Their dividend coverage for the fourth quarter of 2019 was not particularly strong with their operating cash flow of $10.267b only leaving $2.307b for dividends after paying for capital expenditure, investments in joint ventures and associates, net interest expense and dividends to non-controlling interests. This only provided dividend coverage of 61.93% as their dividend payments of $3.725b left a shortfall of $1.418b, however, due to divestitures totaling $2.081b this shortfall was not funded through debt. Whilst this quarter was not stellar, I still maintain that their dividend remains safe as was further discussed in one of my previous articles. Nevertheless their share buybacks totaling $2.848b where clearly partly funded through debt, which as subsequently discussed are being reduced in the short-term. Future Buyback Outlook The next tranche of their share buybacks to is be completed by the 27th April 2020 and will not exceed $1b, which is significantly less than the $2.848b that were repurchased during the fourth quarter of 2019. When considering the current macroeconomic backdrop it should come as little surprise that they are slowing the pace of their share buybacks. This indicates that management is making sensible capital allocation decisions that should help ensure their financial position remains secure and thus their cherished dividend payments continue flowing even if times get tougher. Future Dividend Outlook Given the current gloomy situation for their underlying commodities as well as their desire to further deleverage and complete their share buyback program, it seems safe to assume that their dividend will be remaining static for a while longer. Considering their dividend yield sits at virtually 7% as of the time of writing, this is not necessarily problematic as going forward shareholders can theoretically still earn a modest return in this low interest rate world even if their share price only trends sideways. Conclusion The softness of their earnings should have been mostly expected given the underlying industry conditions that they unfortunately have zero control over. Thankfully it appears that their management is making sensible capital allocation decisions to ensure their core business and cherished dividend payments continue well into the future. Although as a shareholder I would naturally prefer to see stronger results, volatility is par for the course in this industry and thus nothing contained within these results causes me to alter my bullish rating.

Markets Here is Why Growth Investors Should Buy Shell Oil (RDS.A) Now Contributor Zacks Equity Research Zacks Published Jan 30, 2020 12:45PM EST Growth stocks are attractive to many investors, as above-average financial growth helps these stocks easily grab the market's attention and produce exceptional returns. But finding a growth stock that can live up to its true potential can be a tough task. In addition to volatility, these stocks carry above-average risk by their very nature. Also, one could end up losing from a stock whose growth story is actually over or nearing its end. However, it's pretty easy to find cutting-edge growth stocks with the help of the Zacks Growth Style Score (part of the Zacks Style Scores system), which looks beyond the traditional growth attributes to analyze a company's real growth prospects. Shell Oil (RDS.A) is one such stock that our proprietary system currently recommends. The company not only has a favorable Growth Score, but also carries a top Zacks Rank. Research shows that stocks carrying the best growth features consistently beat the market. And returns are even better for stocks that possess the combination of a Growth Score of A or B and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) or 2 (Buy). While there are numerous reasons why the stock of this oil and gas company is a great growth pick right now, we have highlighted three of the most important factors below: Earnings Growth Arguably nothing is more important than earnings growth, as surging profit levels is what most investors are after. And for growth investors, double-digit earnings growth is definitely preferable, and often an indication of strong prospects (and stock price gains) for the company under consideration. While the historical EPS growth rate for Shell Oil is 4.3%, investors should actually focus on the projected growth. The company's EPS is expected to grow 30.8% this year, crushing the industry average, which calls for EPS growth of 15.4%. Impressive Asset Utilization Ratio Growth investors often overlook asset utilization ratio, also known as sales-to-total-assets (S/TA) ratio, but it is an important feature of a real growth stock. This metric exhibits how efficiently a firm is utilizing its assets to generate sales. Right now, Shell Oil has an S/TA ratio of 0.92, which means that the company gets $0.92 in sales for each dollar in assets. Comparing this to the industry average of 0.66, it can be said that the company is more efficient. In addition to efficiency in generating sales, sales growth plays an important role. And Shell Oil looks attractive from a sales growth perspective as well. The company's sales are expected to grow 2.7% this year versus the industry average of 0.8%. Promising Earnings Estimate Revisions Superiority of a stock in terms of the metrics outlined above can be further validated by looking at the trend in earnings estimate revisions. A positive trend is of course favorable here. Empirical research shows that there is a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements. The current-year earnings estimates for Shell Oil have been revising upward. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current year has surged 6% over the past month. Bottom Line Shell Oil has not only earned a Growth Score of B based on a number of factors, including the ones discussed above, but it also carries a Zacks Rank #2 because of the positive earnings estimate revisions. You can see the complete list of today's Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here. This combination positions Shell Oil well for outperformance, so growth investors may want to bet on it.

Shell Weighs More Divestments as Its Profit Falls Sharply -- WSJ share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook share via e-mail 0 01/31/2020 | 07:48am GMT By Sarah McFarlane LONDON -- Royal Dutch Shell PLC said it could ratchet up divestments as it reported a sharp drop in profit for 2019. The company slowed the pace of spending on share buybacks, fueling doubts that it would meet its goal of completing the $25 billion program this year, and cut the value of its U.S. Appalachia assets amid low natural gas prices. "All macroeconomic indicators are working against us," said Shell's Chief Executive Ben van Beurden on Thursday. Shell and many of its energy-sector peers have suffered from lower commodity prices and weaker refining and chemical margins in the past year, with weaker results making it more difficult for some companies to keep up their returns to shareholders. U.S. energy giants Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron Corp. are set to report results on Friday. The difficult market conditions are challenging Shell's plans to transform itself into a lower-carbon business as governments focus on tackling climate change by supporting new technologies such as electric vehicles and renewable energy. Shell said its investments in 2020 would be at the low end of the range it had targeted of $24 billion to $29 billion. The company confirmed that this would mean spending on energy projects such as wind and solar power would also be at the low end of the previous guidance of between $1 billion and $2 billion. The company has spent $2.3 billion on so-called new energies since 2017 and at its management day in June last year set out ambitions to incrementally increase its spending in this area. "The weak macro backdrop is not conducive to Shell being able to decarbonize unless they can reduce their debt," said Christyan Malek, head of oil-and-gas research for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at JPMorgan. "This places a strong emphasis on their oil and gas business which is critical to funding its transformation." Shell plans to divest $10 billion in assets in the 2019 to 2020 period and has already achieved around half of that, but Mr. Van Beurden said the company was working on deals that could amount to about $13 billion for the period. "How that pans out depends a little bit on the pace at which we can close deals, and we will be driven by an economic rationale, rather than a desire to have early cash," he said. Shell divested around $30 billion of assets in the 2016 to 2018 period, after its $50 billion acquisition of BG Group. That deal also saw Shell commit to a $25 billion share buyback program that started in July 2018 and has reached $15 billion so far. The company plans to cut spending on the program to $1 billion in the period to April 27 from $2.75 billion for the three months ended Jan. 27. Biraj Borkhataria, co-head of European energy research at RBC Capital Markets, said Shell was unlikely to reach the $25 billion target by the end of 2020, and mid-2021 was a more realistic time frame. The company's shares were down 3.7% in European trading on Thursday. The decision to slow the pace of spending on buying back shares came after Shell's gearing level -- its net debt as a percentage of total capital -- rose to 29% in the fourth quarter, above the company's target of 25% and the 28% level reported for the third quarter. Gearing levels are one of the measures used by credit credit-rating firms to assess the risk a company faces. Lenders and investors tend to perceive a gearing level below 25% as low risk. Ratings agency Moody's lead analyst for Shell, Sven Reinke, said that even with Shell's weak fourth-quarter results the company "remains solidly positioned with no immediate negative rating pressure." Shell confirmed a $2.24 billion impairment charge, mainly because a global oversupply of natural gas has weighed on U.S. prices. This follows billions of dollars of cuts to asset values since October by companies including Chevron, Spain's Repsol SA, the U.K.'s BP PLC, and Norway's Equinor ASA. --Adriano Marchese in Barcelona contributed to this article.
