Comment from the Chronic's Mark Robinson (better than most on the IC) 17 January FWIW: "Shells' LNG bet looks sound despite glut The global gas market could move to equilibrium sooner than expected. When Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) launched its £35.6bn bid for BG Group, it was easy to appreciate the strategic rationale. At a stroke, the Anglo-Dutch energy giant not only bolstered its reserves, but also shored-up its position in a global liquefied natural gas (LNG) market which had grown rapidly since the turn of the millennium. Shell wasn’t alone in increasing its exposure to the sector, but investors may now be questioning whether long-term prospects in gas markets warrant the massive capital allocation. A supply glut, most noticeably in the US Permian basin, weighed on gas prices last year, and there are few signs of respite as new fields in Australia and Russia come online. The oil majors have been feeling the pinch. Exxon Mobil (US:XOM), Total SA (Sp:FP) and BP (BP.) all reported a marked fall-away in prices through the final quarter, although the impact on the bottom line will be largely determined by the extent to which their gas sales are indexed with crude oil. You certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable in the knowledge that your sales were predicated on North American Henry Hub prices. In December, Chevron (US:CVX) announced that it would take a minimum $10bn (£7.7bn) charge to reflect a deteriorating outlook on fossil fuel prices, more than half of which related to natural gas properties in Appalachia. The average Henry Hub price registered a multi-year low through 2019, down by around a fifth on the prior year, while a recent assessment from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) points to major declines for US fossil fuels and nuclear power alongside strong growth in renewables over the next couple of years. Chevron now plans to cut funding for several natural gas projects across North America in response to near-term supply-side issues, but presumably it must have factored in the rapid growth of the renewable energy complex. But has Chevron’s management acted hastily? Although the federal agency forecasts an increasingly rapid uptake in wind- and solar-powered technologies, it also predicts a large increase in natural gas capacity. The implication is that a rising proportion of renewable energy sources within the US energy mix will come at the expense of thermal coal and oil volumes, rather than gas. This certainly chimes with the experience of energy markets in Western Europe, although it could be argued that the transition there was aided by the move away from crude oil indexation in favour of hub pricing mechanisms, which take account of regular supply/demand dynamics. However, foreign buyers in markets such as the US and Europe still generally opt for long-term indexation contracts – it’s a question of predictability. There have been parallel attempts to establish a meaningful spot price for LNG and it could be argued that Europe is becoming the global benchmark due to the liquidity of continental gas hubs and the trading opportunities that affords. A wider recourse to spot pricing would almost certainly increase the number of market participants, improving price discovery and reducing volatility. It used to be the case that price spreads for LNG were much wider than for those of other fossil fuel commodities, but with the development of new industry infrastructure, arbitrage opportunities have reduced significantly. Through much of last year, they were effectively non-existent between the Atlantic and Pacific basins because the spread rarely exceeded the extra cost of shipping to Asia – a reflection of moribund pricing in Asia and elsewhere. Investors won’t be encouraged by any of this, although Shell’s big bet on LNG may start to pay off sooner than some analysts expect. Internal analysis suggests that more than three-quarters of supply-side growth from liquefaction projects commissioned prior to 2015 is already online. It still means that LNG supply will be around 50 per cent in advance of 2015 levels, although China – which accounts for 70 per cent of LNG export growth – is rapidly transitioning away from coal-fired power stations in a state-sanctioned bid to improve air quality. The consensus seems to be that LNG supply will exceed demand for the next couple of years before the market tightens in 2022. Trading patterns certainly suggest that the big Asian buyers in the market – Japan, South Korea and China – are increasing the average duration of contracts, implying that they are less confident of securing adequate supply from the spot market."

I couldn't care less if they don't increase the divi, it's brilliant as it is. I'm ok with the buybacks: it's still an uncertain demand climate (if ya know wot I mean) out there, and this could be a smaller company in 10 years; so yes, buy-backs please while the scenarios play out.

pvi1, although you might have very sound reason to seek the continued share buyback policy to remain, I suspect you might have sold short. Shell, with the possible exception of the years from the late 1960's to the very early 1980s could not be considered anything other than a cash cow. Long term investors, (I fall into that category) don't give a monkeys on the intraday share price movement, but we do care if the cash dividend received is reduced. Share buy backs seem to have been in place for the greater part of the last couple of decade..... primarily to repay the shares that were issued to finance acquisitions including Texaco. Shell is NOT a growth stock. Shareholders have patiently held our counsel in anticipation of a rise in dividend returned to us.

Not a chance in Hell of a divi increase. I wouldn't want to see one either. I'd rather they finish buying back 25 billion worth of shares and then buy back another 25 billion worth

Shell exec touts benefits of Clifton LNG terminal January 17, 2020 Chester Robards 0 174Views The development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal by Shell North America will generate a mixed bag of benefits for Shell and the Bahamian public, according to Shell’s General Manager of Market Development Markus Hector, who explained that the terminal, which will be called Terminal Co., will not only produce power for New Providence, but will also service the shipping industry and industrial businesses. According to Hector, who spoke to reporters outside of the Bahamas Business Outlook at Baha Mar resort, the development of the facility near Bahamas Power and Light’s Clifton Pier power station, will mean a plethora of benefits for The Bahamas, including a leading position in the provision of LNG for the new generation of cruise vessels that will be powered by LNG-burning engines. “LNG is, in terms of hydrocarbon fuels, the lowest CO2 emissions fuel and it doesn’t have particulate matter or other emissions with it, so it’s a preferred fuel to go forward,” he said. “And we think that based on having the infrastructure here and having the fuel here in The Bahamas, there is opportunity in terms of industrial use, there is opportunity in terms of Family Islands, there is opportunity to use it as a fuel for cruise liners in particular and other vessels which are massively, on a global scale, switching to LNG and creating an opportunity here for The Bahamas to be the front runner in this new business and create a lot of economic benefit for the people of The Bahamas.” He added that LNG across the world has been “developing in a transformational way” because it is a cleaner, lower carbon-emitting fuel. According to Hector, LNG will not only mean cleaner burning power plants on New Providence, but across The Bahamas. “I have no doubt in my mind that having LNG in The Bahamas brings great opportunity for the future,” he said. “Dr. Donovan Moxey talked about the ambitions that BPL has in supplying cleaner power across the islands of The Bahamas, including renewables; and certainly including LNG as a backup fuel to basically give the reliability.” Author Recent Posts Chester Robards Senior Business Reporter at The Nassau Guardian Chester Robards rejoined The Nassau Guardian in November 2017 as a senior business reporter.

Does anyone believe that we'll get further guidance on the resumption of dividend growth in the upcoming Full Year results? As of the end of this month, Shell will have bought back around 5% of its outstanding shares. By the end of this year that figure will have increased to around 8% (assuming that the buyback program continues at the current pace of $2.75 Billion per quarter). Assuming that gearing is also under control with the stated line-of-sight targets, it'd be nice to have forward guidance that the prospect of dividend growth is at least under consideration for 2021, with reasonable caveats etc. It's a beautiful sunny day here, so I'm off to the harbour. It'd be interesting to read any views of the above later. Have a great weekend all.

I wonder if ESG has reached "peak message" and folk just aren't interested anymore? One thing to preach to your own bubble group but another thing entirely to keep the general public on board (especially considering the amount of effort far-left organisations like the BBC have put into hammering out the enviro-fear message).

I think the key thing, purely as a Shell investor, is whether the financial community believes that enough effort is being made to succeed in the transition to a lower carbon world - whether or not that transition is actually needed. Like it or not, ESG Investing cannot be ignored and, to a degree, must almost be pandered to.
