Buybacks waste of money been buying they own shares all the way down from 2600p, crazy. Makes p.e look good and directors. But should have paid a special dividend. OBVIOUSLY SHELL BELIEVES ITS SHARES MUCH UNDERVALUED ALSO SHELL REDUCES THE DIVIDEND PAY OUT VIA THE BUYBACKS ALSO GEO POLITICS, TRUMP TWEET EFFECTS AND THE ODD ENDEMIC VIRUS OR TWO COULD NOT BE PRE FACTORED IN

Spud, On the last day of share buy backs..22nd of this month there were over 3000 trades involved...the vast majority by far were fo a quantity of less than 1000...some for single figure quantities so I doubt that Institutional Investors are exploiting the opportunity. This pattern has been consistent throughout the process. Fingers crossed for a decent update in the morning.

Key witness in Shell/Eni trial fails to support Nigerian bribe charges Jan 29, 2020 A key witness failed to corroborate corruption allegations at the heart of the trial of Eni SpA and Royal Dutch Shell Plc over a Nigerian oil deal, potentially bolstering the companies’ defense in one of the industry’s biggest graft cases. Testimony from Isaac Eke, a high-ranking retired Nigerian police officer, at a court in Milan offered no evidence to back up claims from former Eni manager Vincenzo Armanna that the proceeds from the 2011 transaction were distributed as cash bribes. The failure of what could have been a key prosecution witness helps Shell and Eni, whose Chief Executive Officer Claudio Descalzi is among the accused. Both companies, and the current and former executives that are also defendants, have consistently denied any wrongdoing. Shell declined to comment. Eni wasn’t immediately able to respond to a request for comment. At the center of the case is the $1.1 billion payment Shell and Eni made to the Nigerian government for Oil Prospecting License 245 in the Gulf of Guinea. Prosecutors allege that most of this money was subsequently redistributed as bribes to company and government officials in the West African country. Armanna, who is also a defendant in the trial, has alleged that a bodyguard working at then-President Goodluck Jonathan’s villa, said to be Eke, showed him pictures of trolleys full of cash being taken to a private jet. Eke told the court he had never set foot in the residence and didn’t meet Armanna until three years after the alleged events took place. The testimony effectively reversed evidence Eke had previously submitted to the court in a letter. At one point, the judge interrupted cross-examination to prevent the witness potentially incriminating himself for making false statements to the court. Eke also testified that a mutual friend told him Armanna would pay for his trip to Milan and the accommodation, but eventually he covered the expenses from his own funds. The former police officer said he came to the trial unaware that it was a criminal proceeding. The judge denied a request from Armanna’s lawyer to cross-examine Eke directly. Twist and Turns This is the second time prosecutors have failed to corroborate Armanna’s allegations. A witness called in December, who was said to be the presidential bodyguard, turned out to be the wrong person. Eke was one of the prosecution’s last two witnesses, and the trial in Milan will now go into its final phase with concluding arguments from both sides before a verdict in the coming months. The case has had many twists and turns. In September 2018, two middlemen were found guilty of corruption in a separate fast-track trial related to OPL 245. Emeka Obi and Gianluca Di Nardo were found to have helped arrange a payment between the companies and the Nigerian government for the license. In March 2019, a retired Swiss oil executive withdrew accusations against Shell and Eni executives, saying earlier statements that they were part of a network of bribes and kickbacks had been made under pressure. While the criminal trial in Milan is in its final months, the dispute has spread to courtrooms across Europe. In a London lawsuit, the Nigerian government is seeking more than $1 billion in damages and the rights to revoke the license from Shell and Eni. In the Netherlands, where Shell is headquartered, the company has said it is facing prosecution from the public prosecutor’s office. Source: BNN Bloomberg

Top-up time @ 2050p? That seems to be the next major support here. Depressing price action, but at least it pays a decent dividend. Question - Are all these buybacks merely facilitating an orderly sales process for those IIs wanting to sell into a willing Market? spud

rechargenews.com European oil giants leave US majors standing in shift to wind and solar Likes of Shell and Equinor ahead of American peers but biggest fossil players investing just 3% of total in renewables, says report Related news Sweden's Lundin Petroleum follows neighbour Equinor in renewables push Transition 28 January 2020 12:52 GMT Oil giant Total links with finance group for wind and solar Transition 28 January 2020 9:56 GMT Oil group Galp becomes 'biggest Iberian solar player’ with $2.4bn swoop Transition 23 January 2020 16:20 GMT Offshore oil industry 'social licence to operate under threat' in UK Transition 16 January 2020 14:24 GMT 29 January 2020 6:59 GMT Updated 29 January 2020 6:59 GMT By Andrew Lee European oil & gas groups including Shell and Equinor are leaving their American counterparts trailing when it comes to embracing renewables, with US giant ConocoPhilips still to make a single investment in wind or solar, according to a study of 15 of the world’s biggest fossil players. A survey of energy transition strategies by law firm CMS with Capital Economics found the oil companies had invested 3% of their combined capital budgets into renewables in 2018, with 96% of that $7bn going into wind and PV. Time for Big Oil to put its money where its mouth is over energy transition Read more But the spending varies widely between regions, with a clutch of European groups including Total, Equinor, Repsol, BP and Shell hitting an average 6.2% of capital expenditure (Capex), against 0.8% for the rest of the world, including US giants Chevron, ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips. Spain’s Repsol was the top renewables Capex performer in 2018 at 16.7%, with China’s CNPC bottom at 0.3%, according to the study. The report reckons annual renewables investments by the 15 oil giants could by 2030 rise to between $10bn — if existing global energy transition policies remain broadly the same — and $31bn, under a more rapid transformation that would be in line with the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement. Oil supermajor BP backs offshore wind for lift-off Read more The higher scenario would result in the sample group directing 10% of its total Capex to renewables and carbon capture, but depends on factors such as increased investor and regulatory pressure, and continuing falls in renewables costs, said CMS. “We can say that it is very likely that Shell, BP, Total and Repsol will have invested the most in this area by 2030,” said the report’s authors. CMS identifies a continuing gap in profitability between renewables and their core business as one of the key barriers to a shift in approach by the likes of ConocoPhilips, which has yet to make any investments in wind and solar, and Brazil’s Petrobras, which entered then pulled back from the sector. “ The reality is that oil is generally still more profitable than renewables. As the profitability of renewables investment is proven, strategies in this group of companies may change, but there will remain less incentive to diversify when a company has large oil reserves.” Big Oil must pump up clean energy spend to slow climate crisis: IEA Read more The deep pockets of the world’s oil and gas majors is seen as a key factor in helping finance the energy transition, as they embrace renewables to power their own operations or as attractive investments in their own right. The International Energy Agency (IEA) earlier in January said oil & gas groups have a “crucial role” to play and urged them to raise their game.

The food was rather good. Delivered with it, was the news that oil prices are set to rise on a surprisingly large crude oil inventory draw of 4.27 million barrels for the week ending January 24, compared to analyst expectations of a 482,000-barrel build in inventory. Time now for the port and cheese course. :)

I agree 100% with xxxxxy and ianood above. We all know that > 40% of climate change is due to agriculture, meat, etc. Not just base carbon emissions. ---- I've more to add to this debate, but my takeaway is about to be delivered in my butler's Bentley before his evening off. I'll jet any doggy bag left overs to our pal Greta on her luxury yacht :)
