Shell bashes bans on gasoline cars, proposes carbon pricing instead John Voelcker 114 Comments Sep 21, 2017 Follow John Shell fuel station in Europe Shell fuel station in Europe The prospect of bans on gasoline and diesel new-car sales have become a much greater threat not only to automakers but to oil companies as well, now that China has said it is studying such a move. The world's largest car market has not announced any timetables for such a ban, which will likely be implemented to give domestic automakers the maximum advantage. But the head of strategy for one oil company has already slammed such bans, arguing that it runs the risk of ending efforts to roll out combustion engines with lower emissions. DON'T MISS: China wants all electric cars: will it work? Reasons and reactions The Anglo-Dutch oil company Shell supports the goals of reducing carbon emissions and air pollution, said its strategy head Guy Outen, but didn't believe governments should be in the business of "picking solutions." Quoted earlier in September in an article by the British Financial Times (subscription required), Outen suggested taxing carbon emissions instead. That would allow automakers to choose from among a range of options to reduce carbon in the short and medium term, he argued. Shell Concept Car Shell Concept Car Shell Concept Car “Put a price on carbon," Outen told the FT, "stand back and watch the rush of technology to find the cheapest solution." And, he said, continued reductions in carbon emissions from rising numbers of gasoline and diesel vehicles in developing countries would reduce oil demand three times as much as the likely impact of electric cars. In essence, Outen argued, more carbon could be cut sooner by tougher emission limits on cars with engines than by mandating conversion to zero-emission vehicles in years from 2025 to 2040. CHECK OUT: GM CEO Barra attacks China gas-car ban, suggests buyers should decide Cutting the emissions of a growing global vehicle fleet requires continuing to reduce the carbon emissions per mile from each one. Shell's internal projections suggested that even with "aggressive" consumer demand for electric cars—defined as one in three vehicles sold in 2035—demand for oil used to fuel road vehicles will continue rising until 2035. Stemming the growth in oil consumption before then would require "forced reductions" from legislative policies. Chevrolet Bolt EV being charged outside Go Forth electric-car showroom, Portland [photo: Forth] Chevrolet Bolt EV being charged outside Go Forth electric-car showroom, Portland [photo: Forth] Other projections, however, suggest global demand for gasoline and diesel fuel may peak more than 10 years sooner, as the price of electric cars falls to parity with conventional vehicles sometime during the 2020s. Outen did not explain why the proposed bans on sales of cars with engines were the alternative to stricter vehicle carbon-emission rules, instead of an added measure on top of such rules. Still, a carbon tax is in many ways the fairest and simplest way to penalize emissions of carbon dioxide that contribute to climate change, which are now a cost-free "externality" to the emitters. Numerous think tanks have proposed carbon pricing over the years, and some electric-utility executives would welcome it as a way to solidify the long-term regulatory environment in which they must make huge capital investments with 50-year amortization cycles. As an August article in New York Intelligencer posited, somewhat cynically, that even in the U.S. a carbon tax could accomplish numerous policy goals and be palatable in the current political environment It would impose much of the tax burden not on large corporations but on the customers to whom they would pass it along, including low- and middle-income buyers of gasoline for the cars that take them to work. Beijing smog Beijing smog This regressiveness, suggests author Jonathan Chait, would satisfy the tax-cuts-for-the-rich-at-all-costs segment of the political spectrum. It could be presented as a tax on corporations—popular with the electorate—even though it was nothing of the sort. The challenge is that states that produce coal and oil would still find their product disadvantaged. We note that Shell's idea of a carbon tax already exists in European countries where annual vehicle registration fees are based on their carbon emissions. But we're not going to hold our breath waiting for such systems to arrive in the U.S. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Green Car Reports thanks our tipster, who prefers to remain an International Man of Mystery.]

Shell positioning itself as Egypt’s preferred future partner of choice: Gasser Hanter The Apollonia project can boost Egypt’s unconventional oil/gas exploration and production Daily News Egypt 49 mins ago 0 Comments In the wake of the ongoing economic reform programme adopted by the authorities and the plans to transform Egypt into a major energy hub, Daily News Egypt sat with Gasser Hanter, chairperson and managing director of Shell Egypt, which is responsible for around 20% of Egypt’s gas production and 10% of the country’s oil production to discuss the prospects of Egypt’s oil and gas sector, in addition to reviewing the company’s latest projects and updates in the Egyptian market. How do you describe Shell’s presence in Egypt? We have a unique partnership with Egypt and we are a leading player in both the upstream (onshore and offshore) and downstream in Egypt. Upstream, we have a diversified and an interesting footprint, producing a significant percentage of the country’s oil and gas, with approximately 20% of the country’s gas production and 10% of its hydrocarbon liquid production, making us one of the two biggest operators in the western desert at a daily production of over 130 kilo barrel of oil equivalent (Kboe). Through our three joint ventures, Badr El-din Petroleum Company (Bapetco), Rashid Petroleum Co. (Rashpetco), and Burullus Gas Company (Burullus), we continue to provide production and development activities in Egypt—our onshore presence in the Western Desert spans over nine Production Sharing Contracts (PSCs), with stakes in 22 oil and gas production licences in the Badr El-Din, Northeast Abu El Gharadig, Sitra, West Sitra, Obaiyed, and Alam El Shawish West (AESW) areas. This is in addition to four onshore exploration blocks—North Matruh, North East Obayied, and North Alam Elshawish, besides the recently awarded block of North Umbaraka (NUMB). We also have near-field exploration activities within our existing development concessions and are proud to be the largest infrastructure operator for pipelines and processing plants in the western desert. Our offshore portfolio includes two operated gas-producing concessions—Rosetta and West Delta Deep Marine (WDDM)—and two operated non-producing concessions—North Gamasa NGO and El Burg Offshore EBO. Our midstream business in Egypt, our world-class Egyptian LNG (ELNG), is a joint-venture with the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding company (EGAS), among others. We have the ability to produce and export 7.2 mtpa (2 trains) and up to 120 LNG cargoes per year. This year marks a major achievement for the ELNG, the successful full loan repayment for financing the establishment of the Egyptian LNG project. Moreover, we have a thriving downstream business in Egypt with a growing lubricant-market share, at approximately 19% and an oil-blending plant, which is currently undergoing expansion. Our people are our core assets. We are optimally delivering performance through building local staff competencies. Through our joint-ventures, we employ around 3,500 people in Egypt and over 80 located globally. As you can see, Shell is here to stay and grow its investments and operations in Egypt, supporting the country to meet its energy needs. Can you tell us more about ELNG’s success in loan repayment? When the financing was secured in 2003, it was the largest financing project in Egyptian history. Today, Egyptian LNG is beginning a new chapter, one of greater financial stability. The Egyptian LNG can look to the future. It is a world class asset that can help Egypt to meet its economic goals and its aspiration of becoming a major gas hub in the years to come. It was a very proud moment for this joint venture. This would not have been possible without the strong support from the government and from the creditors. What are Shell’s latest updates? On the Onshore: we see the western desert as a rich basin and look forward to maximising the hydrocarbon potential there through our JV Bapetco, which is operating at full capacity. Plans include an aggressive near-field exploration using the latest seismic reprocessing techniques, in addition to continue drilling exploration wells within the exploration licences of North East Obayeid and North Matruh. We are also looking to the fast-paced development of brown field infill drilling, sustained water-injection and well-workovers of restoration and optimisation. This is in addition to unlocking difficult gas opportunities. Our recent onshore discovery in the North East Alam Al Shawish concession has an estimated 0.5 Tcf gas in place, and we have commenced our development and planning activities. Such a discovery is the deepest and is one of the largest gas discoveries in the western desert in the past years and is set to have a material contribution to the overall onshore production in Egypt. We are pleased to have signed last month the concession agreement of the recently awarded North Um Baraka (NUMB) block with the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, which was part of the 2016 onshore bid round. The NUMB block is adjacent to the Obaiyed development lease in the western desert, which is operated by Bapetco—our joint-venture with the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC)—covering an area of approximately 5,624 square kilometres. The proximity to the Obaiyed concession allows for quick tie-in and production from future discoveries. We intend to use high-resolution 3D seismic and deep drilling technology in our new North Um Baraka block and plan to commence drilling at the end of this year and proudly have one of the largest onshore exploration teams in Egypt with high-technology capabilities and strong support from the global Shell Technology Centre. We have paved the way with the largest and first high-resolution 3D seismic survey over North Matruh/North East Obaiyed in 2015 and drilled the second deepest well in the western desert, the BTE-2 discovery, to almost a 6,000-metre depth in August 2016. As for offshore, we are continuing to maximise production from existing wells in our two operated concessions: Rosetta and the West Delta Deep Marine, which once had the capacity to produce 2bcf/d. We are also resuming our technical studies for further development and realisation of exploration potential, which looks promising given new avenues (such as deeper horizons). On phase 9B, we are also discussing with the relevant authorities the potential future investment opportunities, and such discussions are progressing well. What is Shell’s view on Apollonia? Innovation and successful partnership are what comes to my mind when talking about Apollonia. This is a very exciting project, and we are glad to be taking part in it as it is done for the first time in Egypt. Our pilot, Apollonia, is a formation of the Northeast Abu El Gharadig (NEAG) licence area, a joint venture between Shell (52%) and Apache (48%) in the western desert. We test the potential of stranded gas fields through this pilot using state-of-the-art technology, where we work with our partners EGPC and Apache to assess the future viability of tight gas reserves, using horizontal multi-stage fracking. Two horizontal multi-stage fracked wells were delivered successfully as part of the pilot phase, where the wells are currently delivering relatively sustained gas rates. The outcomes from the first multi-stage frack pilot project in Egypt are being reviewed to be reflected in the planning of the next phase of development. Based on the outcome of such pilot, we would evaluate further opportunities within the unconventional space. The Apollonia project is quite strategic because, if proven successful, it can open up new avenues for the country within the unconventional oil/gas exploration and production. We are keen to be leading on this with our partners and successfully contributing to Egypt’s energy demand and to also set an industry precedent to attract further foreign direct investments (FDIs) into the country. Egypt is in the very early stages of assessing its tight oil and gas potential where this is considered a key game-changer for Egypt in the coming period, and Shell is proud to be taking part in such a transition. This is also in line with our global strategy on unconventionals as a viable energy resource, and as a future growth opportunity. We continue to make progress in our shale business, which is an important piece of Shell’s integrated business model. What is your vision of the industry in light of the latest discoveries? Egypt’s economic potential is closely tied to its ability to develop a robust energy industry. As you know, the Egyptian government is working hard to lay these foundations. And there is great progress. Investment is coming in, and production of oil and gas is growing again. That is helping the government to move towards its goal of transforming Egypt into a regional energy hub. In tandem, Shell is playing its part and is positioning itself as the preferred future partner of choice to Egypt. Our company has invested heavily in Egypt’s energy infrastructure through the acquisition of the BG Group last year, including its assets in Egypt. This deal builds on Shell’s 100+ years in Egypt. During that time, we have continued to invest in projects. We have created strong partnerships that underpin successful joint ventures. And those have created thousands of jobs and built great expertise. Partnerships, safety, and strategic growth are what make up Shell’s strategy in Egypt. We are proud of our role in helping shape Egypt’s energy future through the development of skills and supporting the Ministry of Petroleum’s modernisation programme. What I have personally found impressive was the determination with which the government has been driving the economic reform programme forward, also reflected in the modernisation programme. The key pillars highlighted for reform clearly show that the industry has been consulted, as they directly address various issues that players are facing within the Egyptian market today.

Shell Initiates Production From Gbaran-Ubie Phase 2 Project August 29, 2017, 09:15:00 AM EDT By Zacks Equity Research, Zacks.com Shutterstock photo European oil giant Royal Dutch Shell plc 's RDS.A subsidiary The Shell Petroleum Development Company recently commenced production from the second phase of its key gas project, Gbaran-Ubie in Nigeria's Niger Delta region. The Phase 2 project is an expansion of the Phase 1 Gbaran-Ubie project which was commissioned in June 2010. Between Kolo Creek and Soku, which connects the Gbaran-Ubie central processing facility to the Soku non-associated gas plant, till date 18 wells have been drilled and a new pipeline constructed.The facilities came online in July. The peak production capacity of the project is estimated to be 175,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in 2019. The project is a joint venture between the state-owned Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Total E&P Nigeria Ltd., subsidiary of TOTAL S.A. TOT , Nigerian Agip Oil Company Limited, subsidiary of Eni S.p.A. E , and Shell Petroleum Development. Shell Petroleum Development is the chef operator of the project with 30% stake. Nigerian National Petroleum, Total E&P Nigeria and Nigerian Agip Oil hold 55%, 10% and 5% interests in the project, respectively. Shell, which boasts a strong and diversified portfolio of global energy businesses, started its operations in Nigeria in 1958. Plummeting oil prices along with rising militantism has lowered the production and revenues of the country and posed risk to Shell's operations in the region. However, the ongoing government peace talks have eased the situation to certain extent. The development projects in Nigeria are expected to help volume growth and offer growth opportunities to Shell in the long run. The project is likely to boost oil output and enhance exports. Nigeria currently produces1.7 million barrels of oil per day (Bpd) which is expected to rise to 2.2 million Bpd by 2018 and 4 million Bpd by 2020. In a bid to bolster its reserves, production and daily revenues, Nigeria is currently focusing on inking deals with foreign companies to develop oil fields. In August, Nigerian National Petroleum signed two development project deals with oil majors Chevron Corporation CVX and Shell. The projects are expected to generate revenues of around $16 billion within the assets' lifecycle. The increase in exploration activities will not only boost employment opportunities and gas supply but will also uplift the industrial capacity utilization of Nigeria. While the deal with Shell will accelerate the upstream production of various oil fields in Niger Delta region, the deal with Chevron is expected to add 211 million barrels of oil and 1.9 trillion Cubic feet of gas to Nigerian reserves with a potential output of 30,000 b/d of oil equivalent. In late June, Nigerian National Petroleum inked a $700 million tripartite deal with First E&P and Schlumberger Limited to develop two shallow water fields which is likely to add 50,000 barrels of crude per day to Nigeria's output. Zacks Rank Headquartered in Netherlands, Shell is one of the largest integrated energy companies and is engaged in production, refining, distribution and marketing of oil and natural gas. The company currently carries a Zacks Rank #3(Hold). You can see the complete list of today's Zacks #1 (Strong Buy) Rank stocks here. Shell's stock has gained around 2.5% year to date, substantially outperforming the 6% decline of the industry

Shell Joins Solar Push in Coal Country of World’s Top Exporter By Ben Sharples and Perry Williams 25 août 2017 à 08:01 UTC+2 From Co. studying feasibility of project in Australia’s Queensland Equis has approved A$1.5 billion solar farm in same region Photographer: Ian Waldie/Bloomberg Royal Dutch Shell Plc is investigating a solar power project in an Australian region better known for its fossil fuels, particularly coal. The company is studying the feasibility of a solar development on its land in the Western Downs area of Queensland, which is subject to a final investment decision, a spokeswoman said by email. Though Shell’s statement didn’t elaborate on timing or size, the regional council this week said it had approved construction of the 250-megawatt Delga Solar Farm project proposed by Shell at Woleebee, near Wandoan. Shell plans to spend as much as $1 billion a year on its New Energies division as the transition to renewable power accelerates, and will partner with Sunseap Group Pte to invest in solar throughout the Asia Pacific. Equis Energy earlier this month approved a 1,000-megawatt solar plant near Wandoan, a region long associated with a potential large coal mine development by Glencore Plc. “Investment in Australia’s large-scale solar sector has had a record-breaking 12 months with around 1,678 megawatts worth of new projects currently under construction across the country,” said Leonard Quong, an associate with Bloomberg New Energy Finance in Sydney. Falling technology costs and surging electricity prices are helping to drive a boom in the sector, Quong said. See also: Australia’s Largest Generator Urges No Coal in Clean Target Equis’ A$1.5 billion ($1.2 billion) Wandoan South Solar Project will be one of the largest in the country and is scheduled to start delivering power in 2019, the Singapore-based company said Aug. 7. Australia is the world’s biggest exporter of thermal and metallurgical coal. There are 38 solar plants operating in Australia with a capacity to generate 411 megawatts of power, and a further 29 under construction, according to BNEF. Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
