Electricity for EV's has to be generated and if estimate of 266m EV's by 2040 is correct it's most likely that gas will play a big part in generating the extra electricity required (along with renewable energy, nuclear etc.). A lot of extra electricity will be needed, especially as remote generation leads to transmission losses which, together with the additional energy conversion steps, mean that EV's actually use more energy that burning fossil fuel directly in vehicles. Shell has been moving away from oil in favour of gas for some time and CEO stated last year that 'Shell is more a gas company than an oil company'. As far as the trend to EV's is concerned, maybe Shell's acquisition of BG was an opportunistic move.

Electric Cars Are Officially Keeping the Oil Industry up at Night By Matt Posky on July 14, 2017 oil Even though electric vehicles still only account for a sliver of the global market, Big Oil is beginning to take them seriously as a long-term threat to the industry. While preserving a finite resource is still probably the way to go, oil companies are accustomed to making money and have now begun revising their forecasts to account for accelerated EV adoption. Companies like Exxon Mobil and BP are ratcheting up their outlooks for the technology, anticipating slowing oil demand, while OPEC has quintupled its forecast for sales of EVs in the coming years. Those vehicles should account for a reduced oil demand of roughly 8 million annual barrels by 2040. According to Bloomberg, that’s more than the current combined production of Iran and Iraq. “The number of EVs on the road will have major implications for automakers, oil companies, electric utilities and others,” Colin McKerracher, head of advanced-transport analysis at Bloomberg New Energy Finance, wrote to clients. “There is significant disagreement on how fast adoption will be, and views are changing quickly.” So quickly, in fact, that OPEC now believes EVs will account for almost a quarter of the global market in under 24 years. That’s 266 million vehicles, up from a scant 46 million it anticipated just a year ago. If you’re wondering what’s causing the shifting projections from oil companies, it’s the newly concentrated effort from major manufacturers to incorporate electrification into their fleets. Tesla is beginning production of the more-mainstream Model 3 this summer, Volvo is planning to place an electric motor in all of its vehicles within two years, Mercedes is shifting toward mild hybrids, Volkswagen is promising to be a cleaner, greener company by bringing more electrics to market, and nearly every company is coming out with a new EV as they simultaneously scale down the size of their internal combustion engines. That’s in addition to a growing network of charging stations and governments pushing for more aggressive emission regulations. It’s all working toward an increasingly electric and less oil-driven future.

Offshore staff GREAT YARMOUTH, UK – Veolia and Peterson have accepted the first offshore structure into their Great Yarmouth decommissioning facility. Shell’s decommissioned Leman BH platform accommodation block has arrived at Veolia/Peterson̵7;s new decommissioning complex at Great Yarmouth on the English east coast. The supporting 50-m (164-ft) high steel jacket should follow soon after being removed from its location 50 km (31 mi) from the Norfolk coast in the UK southern North Sea. The platform had previously housed personnel working on the Leman BT and Leman BK platforms. Boskalis is responsible for offshore removal and transport operations. Shell is targeting a 97% recycling and re-use rate. Veola/Peterson’;s site will handle deconstruction and recycling of both structures, comprising around 1,600 metric tons (1,763 tons) of materials and equipment. It can provide decontamination, waste management and associated integrated logistics, marine and quayside services. To date the venture has recovered over 80,000 metric tons (88,185 tons) of offshore materials. 07/12/2017

Shell Aggressively Investing in New Energies Division Move comes as renewable power, electric cars gain in popularity. July 11, 2017, 02:10 pm LONDON — One major oil company is investing heavily in new energy platforms as the fuels industry continues to evolve. Royal Dutch Shell plc will spend as much as $1 billion a year on its New Energies division as renewable power and electric cars gain in popularity with consumers, according to The Boston Globe. "In some parts of the world we are beginning to see battery electric cars starting to gain consumer acceptance" while wind and solar costs are falling fast, Shell CEO Ben Van Beurden said in a speech in Istanbul, Turkey, on July 10. "All of this is good news for the world and must accelerate," while still offering opportunities for producers of fossil fuels, he added. According to the report, Shell sees opportunities in hydrogen fuel-cells, liquefied natural gas, and next-generation biofuels for air travel, shipping and heavy freight. Van Beurden spoke at the World Petroleum Congress, a gathering of ministers and chief executives from some of the largest oil producers, at a time when the accelerating shift to clean energy is raising questions about their long-term business models. While other attendees explained that oil and gas will remain dominant for the next few decades, Van Beurden highlighted the potential for some of the fastest-growing nations to leapfrog straight to a cleaner energy mix. "When you consider the areas of the world where energy demand is still to expand, like Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, there is a huge opportunity," Van Beurden said. "These are areas that are not, on the whole, locked in to a coal-driven system. There is the potential for them to shift more directly onto a less energy-intensive pathway to development." There is often too much focus on energy-transition policies in Europe and North America instead of the fast-growing developing world, he added. Based in the Netherlands, Royal Dutch Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemical companies with operations in more than 70 countries. Houston-based Shell Oil Co. is an affiliate of the company.

Climate change poses one of the biggest long-term risks to the global economy and companies, including big oil and gas firms such as Shell, have to be open about how the risks will affect them, its chief executive said on Tuesday. Shell, one of the biggest oil and gas producing firms in the world, is under growing pressure from some shareholders to improve its carbon footprint and sustainability credentials. Shell said it assesses climate change risks internally but it has so far not disclosed in detail what financial impact climate-related risks could have. A think-tank estimated last month that energy companies could be wasting more than $2 trillion (£1.5 trillion) by 2025 on projects that will not be needed if governments' carbon-reduction targets are met. "It is right that it should be transparent which companies are truly on firm foundations over the long-term," Shell CEO Ben van Beurden wrote in a post on social media platform LinkedIn. Shell's press office confirmed its veracity. Last week, Shell signed up to a G20 task-force working on a framework to improve the ability to assess and price climate-related risks. Van Beurden said Shell will help the task-force determine a way to disclose commercially sensitive data. (Reporting by Karolin Schaps, editing by David Evans)

Germany’s first LNG-bunkering venture lands Shell as launch customer Fri 30 Jun 2017 by Karen Thomas Print story Email us AddThis Sharing Buttons Share to LinkedInShare to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to Google+ Germany’s first LNG-bunkering venture lands Shell as launch customer A German first: PitPoint will supply LNG marine fuel on the Rhine at Cologne Netherlands-based PitPoint LNG is to build the first LNG bunkering station in Germany at a waterfront site in Cologne, on the Rhine – with Shell on board as the launch customer. PitPoint will build the bunkering hub to deliver gas as marine fuel to LNG-fuelled inland waterway vessels, supporting the company’s plan to develop European supply infrastructure for road and marine customers. Shell Eastern LNG has agreed to bunker its chartered fleet of inland dual-fuel barges at Cologne when the operation starts next year. In December 2015, Shell agreed with Plouvier Transport to charter 15 dual-fuel barges. The first barges were due to be delivered this year, with the entire fleet in place by next summer. Shell general manager downstream LNG Lauran Wetemans says: “With the infrastructure developed in Rotterdam, this station will expand the availability of LNG fuel for customers on the Rhine, Europe’s key inland waterway. We look forward to working with PitPoint LNG to make this a reality.” System integrator PitPoint LNG designs, builds, finances, maintains and operates LNG-refuelling infrastructure. Managing director Jan Willem Drijver says the Cologne venture supports the company’s drive “to realise 100 per cent clean transport in 2030”. The venture has funding from the European Union Connecting Europe facility. It is part of the CEF project, Breakthrough LNG Deployment in Inland Waterway Transport.

29/06/2017 | 11:36 As part of a sectoral note devoted to oil companies, Credit Suisse confirmed its preference, among the 'super-majors', for Royal Dutch Shell. The '' outperformance '' ('outperformance') on the 'A' stock is therefore maintained, as is the price target of 2,500 pence and the 'focus list stock'. Analysts note that Shell has aligned three robust consecutive quarters, exceeding consensus expectations as well as the performance of the main comparable value, the US ExxonMobil. "It will be interesting to see if the company is able to keep pace in the second quarter of 2017," says a research note for half-yearly results. Credit Suisse adds that the merger with BG Group has 'repositioned Shell down the cost curve' of deposits. The new group is also exposed to more diversified assets, both in terms of timing and profitability. On the liquefied natural gas (LNG) side, the position that Shell has built is considered to be 'superior to that of comparable values'. Credit Suisse finally says that in the worst possible scenarios, its target value price is at 2,040 pence, virtually the current price. In the best case, the target would be 3,065 pence

Shell's Prelude Floating LNG Plant Leaves South Korea for Australian Waters 29/06/2017 12:26pm Dow Jones News Shell A (LSE:RDSA) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Thursday 29 June 2017 Click Here for more Shell A Charts. By Robb M. Stewart MELBOURNE, Australia--Royal Dutch Shell PLC's (RDSA) massive floating gas-export vessel, the biggest of its kind, has left its South Korean shipyard for natural-gas fields off Australia's northwest coast. The Prelude floating liquefied natural gas plant will slowly make its way to where it will join a number of other big LNG ventures dotted around Australia that have positioned the country to overtake Qatar as the world's biggest exporter of the fuel in the coming years. Tens of billions of dollars have been invested by international and local energy companies in recent years, betting on rising demand for cleaner-burning energy in Asia. Prelude left the yard in South Korea early Thursday, being towed toward Australia to eventually be chained to the ocean floor, Shell said. The journey marks a major milestone for the project, setting it up to begin producing LNG for customers globally and cash flow for Shell from next year, it added. Prelude is the flagship project for the emergence of floating LNG, and more complex and versatile than other floating projects, said Saul Kavonic, an analyst at Wood Mackenzie in Western Australia. "The sail away of the world's largest man-made floating structure is a major milestone for Shell, Australia and the LNG industry," he said. Mr. Kavonic said commissioning of Prelude is likely to take a further nine to 12 months, with the first cargo of fuel likely by mid-2018. Although floating LNG plants are expected by industry analysts to remain niche compared with traditional onshore plants, 2017 has been already been a big year for the technology. In early April, Malaysia's state oil firm, Petroliam Nasional Bhd., or Petronas, loaded the first cargo onto a ship from its new 1.2-million-tons-a-year PFLNG Satu floating operation in the Kanowit gas field off Sarawak. And in June, Italy's ENI SpA kicked off its Coral South floating LNG project in Mozambique. But in 2016, Woodside Petroleum Ltd. (WPL.AU) and partners including Shell shelved plans for the Browse floating LNG project in response to the slump in oil prices. Shell made the decision to invest in the Prelude project just over six years ago, and began construction in late 2012. The keel was laid the following May, as assembly of the hull in a dry dock was begun ahead of the turret and topside being fitted at Samsung Heavy Industry's Geoje shipyard in South Korea. The floating gas plant is 1,601 feet long, equivalent to more than four soccer fields, and weighs about 600,000 metric tons, displacing six times as much water as the largest aircraft carrier, according to Shell's plans. Despite its massive size, it is about one-quarter the scale of an equivalent plant on land, with technology adapted for a floating environment and components stacked vertically. When positioned in the Browse Basin, about 300 miles from the coast of Western Australia, the vessel will be moored to four chains held to the sea floor. According to Shell, it has been designed to withstand severe weather, with thrusters able to steady it during production and offloading. The facility will be able to produce 3.6 million tons of LNG a year, plus volumes of other liquid fuels. Up to 140 people will be on the vessel during normal operations, although that would double during heavy maintenance periods. Write to Robb M.

Running Out of Time to Reduce Stockpiles in 2017, Statoil Says By Giacomo Tognini and Sheela Tobben 23 June 2017, 22:22 CEST Oil prices will recover but unclear when, says chief economist OPEC cuts unlikely to correct market under current conditions The oil market is running out of time for crude inventories to show a significant drop in 2017, according to Statoil ASA’s chief economist. When it comes, though, the correction "will be relatively rapid," said Eirik Waerness in an interview at Bloomberg headquarters in New York. Analysts have been surprised by the intransigence of global oil stockpiles, according to Waerness. That’s because the focus has been mostly on U.S. shale, missing the "flow of oil from projects that were decided back in 2010” and now are coming online. Production is even increasing in the North Sea, where analysts expected a decline, he said. This makes it more difficult for OPEC to increase prices, according to Waerness. "At some point, impact from an ebbing flow of projects will slow down," he said. "Patience is the name of the game. Current prices are unsustainably low. Producers are not making enough to cover production cost." West Texas Intermediate, the U.S. benchmark, closed at $43.01 a barrel on Friday. Prices in New York have declined 19.8 percent this year, dropping more than 20 percent below the 2017 high on Wednesday to slip into a bear market amid an ongoing supply glut. Drillers added rigs to the shale patch for a record 23rd straight week, according to Baker Hughes Inc. data reported Friday. Unlike the International Energy Agency, Statoil expects oil demand to peak in 2030 under its central scenario. That is too late to meet the temperature target outlined in the Paris Climate agreement. "Peak oil has to happen extremely rapidly, by 2022, or we won’t reach that target," said Waerness. Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.

Oil Ticks Higher After Challenging Week Share On Facebook Print Alert By Alison Sider and Neanda Salvaterra Crude prices rose on Monday as major producers said their deal to cut output is working. U.S. crude futures rose 38 cents, or 0.83%, to $46.21 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent, the global benchmark, rose 30 cents, or 0.62%, to $48.45 a barrel on ICE Futures Europe. The move higher comes after prices fell nearly 4% last week. Investors have become more skeptical that efforts by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other major exporters are working off a global oil glut. Prices tumbled sharply last Wednesday after U.S. data showed an unexpected increase in the amount of crude in storage. But Saudi Arabia's energy minister said that he expects global oil stockpiles to fall more quickly in the coming months. Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said Monday that he is "fairly confident that the market rebalancing, which is already under way, will accelerate." Michael Hiley, a trader at LPS Futures LLC, said a flurry of options trading late last week could be a sign that speculative investors are dipping their toes back into the market. "A few hedge funds may be trying to bottom pick," he said. Other factors boosting prices Monday include escalating tensions in the Middle East, a disruption in supply from Nigeria and a weaker U.S. dollar. Last Friday, Nigeria reported a pipeline leak which could hamper the exports for Bonny Light exports. JBC Energy analysts estimate that "a good portion of the 205,000 b/d planned for June will be shut in." "We have had the Nigeria outage return. The market is factoring in a little bit of disruption," said Miswin Mahesh, an oil market analyst at Energy Aspects. The prospect of rising production from Nigeria has weighed on prices at times in recent months. Nigeria is exempt from an agreement struck by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other major producers to cut output by 1.8 million barrels a day. A softer U.S. dollar may also have supported prices. The Wall Street Journal Dollar Index, which tracks the dollar against a basket of other currencies, fell 0.05% on Monday. Oil is priced in dollars and as the greenback wanes in strength it becomes is more affordable for buyers holding other currencies. Investors are looking forward to the release of a slew of data this week, such as the International Energy Agency's report on Wednesday which includes figures on the state of OECD stocks. OPEC's May report, which includes production and export figures, will be released Tuesday. The data will give traders a better picture of whether a global rebalancing is taking place in the oil market. Last week saw volatile trading: Oil rose nearly 2% early on amid renewed diplomatic spats in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other Persian Gulf states severed diplomatic ties with Qatar, a member of OPEC. Saudi Arabia and others have long accused Qatar of meddling in their internal affairs and backing terrorism, allegations that Qatar has denied. Rising production activities outside of OPEC, particularly in the U.S., prompted UBS last week to cut its 2017 price forecast for WTI oil to $53 a barrel from $55.50. "U.S. shale players are clearly focused on delivering production growth, and plentiful capital is available to fund it," said Jon Rigby, the bank's head of oil research. A net eight additional oil rigs were in operation in the U.S. last week, putting the figure at 741, the most since April 2015. Gasoline futures fell 1.34 cents, or 0.89%, to $1.4883 a gallon. Diesel futures were nearly unchanged, up 0.21 cent, or 0.15%, at $1.4333 a gallon. Summer Said contributed to this article.
