Sunday 23 July 2017 6:15pm Shell is expected to show continued improvement despite lower oil prices Share Courtney Goldsmith I am a journalist for City A.M. reporting on the Industrials sector, including o [..] Show more Follow Courtney Endangered Blue Whales Spotted Off California Coast Shell will report its first-half results on Thursday, 27 July (Source: Getty) Royal Dutch Shell is set to confirm underlying performance continued to improve in the second quarter of 2017 despite low oil prices when it reveals its first-half results on Thursday. Europe's largest oil and gas firm is expected to show weaker quarter-on-quarter upstream earnings, because of the recent downturn in oil prices to below $50 a barrel and seasonally weaker production, but earnings should still be in positive territory for the fourth quarter in a row, said analysts at Panmure Gordon. Reported earnings are forecast to reflect a hefty charge for identified items, which Panmure estimated at $1.3bn (£1bn), including a charge for the the Corrib disposal that was announced last week. The Anglo-Dutch company is halfway through a three-year, $30bn divestment programme to cut debt following its acquisition of BG Group. So far, it has announced deals valued at more than $20bn, and analysts said proceeds from the company's disposals are set to ramp up in the second quarter. The FTSE 100-listed oil major is expected to receive cash disposal proceeds of around $7.5bn. "We forecast organic cash flow to comfortably cover cash dividend and capital expenditure, so the flood of cash from disposals should help drive a notable 2.6 per cent quarter-on-quarter reduction in gearing, taking gearing below 25 per cent for the first time since the acquisition of BG at the start of 2016," said Colin Smith, equity researcher at Panmure.

This article is being republished as part of our daily reproduction of WSJ.com articles that also appeared in the U.S. print edition of The Wall Street Journal (July 13, 2017). LONDON -- Royal Dutch Shell PLC sold its stake in a controversial Irish gas field for up to $1.23 billion to one of Canada's biggest pension funds in a deal that will result in accounting losses of as much as $750 million for the Anglo-Dutch energy company. Shell led the development of the Corrib gas field, located about 52 miles off the Atlantic coast of rural County Mayo. The field began producing in 2015 after years of delays caused by local opposition to the construction of an associated pipeline. The deal with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board takes Shell out of the energy-development business in Ireland. A subsidiary of the pension fund will take control of Shell's 45% interest in Corrib, while Vermilion Energy Inc., a Calgary-based oil-and-gas producer, will become the new operator of the field, Shell and the pension fund said on Wednesday. The transaction is for $947 million initially with payments of up to $285 million between 2018 and 2025, depending on gas prices and production. Shell said on Wednesday the sale was consistent with its plan to sell off $30 billion in assets by 2018, as it repairs its balance sheet after loading up on debt for the 2015 acquisition of BG Group PLC for over $50 billion. Andy Brown, a top Shell executive, said the company has announced deals valued at over $20 billion. "This transaction is part of our strategy to reshape Shell and to deliver a world-class investment case," he said. Shell acquired the company that discovered Corrib in 2002, but its plans to build an onshore pipeline to transport the field's gas to a terminal it would construct at Bellanaboy in County Mayo sparked fierce opposition. That resistance focused on concerns about the safety of the pipeline and its effects on the environment. The controversy led to changes to the pipeline's path, including routing it through a 4.9 kilometer (3-mile-long) tunnel, the longest in Ireland, that increased the project's costs and forced delays. Those delays and changes are forcing Shell to book an impairment charge of about $350 million in its second-quarter earnings results. The company also said it would take an accounting loss of about $400 million because of currency fluctuations between the euro and the dollar once the deal is completed, likely in the first part of 2018. Shell will maintain a presence in Ireland through an aviation joint venture, Shell and Topaz Aviation Ireland Ltd., based near Dublin airport.

Goldman: Oil Prices To Fall Below $40 If Shale Doesn't Slow Jul. 12, 2017 6:17 PM ET| 1 comment| Includes: BNO, DBO, DNO, DTO, DWT, OIL, OILK, OILX, OLEM, OLO, SCO, SZO, UCO, USL, USO, USOI, UWT, WTID, WTIU Oilprice Oilprice Commodities, long only, oil & gas, energy OilPrice (1,478 followers) Summary Oil prices could soon fall below $40 per barrel if there isn't a sustained drawdown in U.S. crude inventories and rig counts, or without bold action from OPEC. The rig count also initially appeared to be slowing - and actually declined recently for the first time in months - but rebounded in the most recent data. Goldman says the "coming month will be key to testing whether producers are responding to the signal of $45/bbl WTI prices." By Nick Cunningham Oil prices could soon fall below $40 per barrel if there isn't a sustained drawdown in U.S. crude inventories and rig counts or without bold action from OPEC. That prediction comes from Goldman Sachs, which says that the oil market is searching for a new equilibrium. The investment bank says that it is still too early to tell whether or not the most recent inventory reductions in the U.S. are an anomaly or the start of something more durable. Moreover, the higher-than-expected inventory declines in June occurred at the same time that Libya and Nigeria were adding new sources of supply. That is why the enormous drawdown, particularly last week, prevented the oil bulls from coming out in full force. Rightly so. The rig count also initially appeared to be slowing -- and actually declined recently for the first time in months -- but rebounded in the most recent data. The same was true for U.S. oil production data, which fell and then rebounded. All of this is short-term noise in the data, and it will take several more weeks to see how the shale industry responds to recent plunge in oil prices. Goldman says the "coming month will be key to testing whether producers are responding to the signal of $45/bbl WTI prices." The early signs of a slightly tighter market are likely not enough to assuage the fears of oil traders, which have grown wary of trying to position themselves ahead of a theoretical rebound. Because the markets have grown impatient with the pace of market adjustment, Goldman warns that the risk on the downside is imminent. If the shale figures fail to contract in response to the plunge in oil prices, that means prices might have to fall further. OPEC is set to meet again on July 24 for a compliance meeting, which Goldman says gives the cartel another opportunity to try to fix the imbalances in the market. However, instead of talking up prices with hints and comments about what it might do (a perennial OPEC tactic) Goldman says OPEC should instead pursue a "shock and awe" approach -- that is to say, aggressive action without any clues to the public beforehand. Without that, and without strong drawdowns in crude inventories, oil prices could soon fall below $40 per barrel. That prediction comes roughly two weeks after Goldman downgraded its three-month oil price forecast from $55 to $47.50. The problem is that the chances of deeper OPEC cuts, at least right now, appear to be slim. OPEC's Secretary General said just a few days ago that cuts were not even on the agenda for the meeting. The meeting is, after all, just meant to monitor the compliance of the existing cuts. At the same time, there have been hints recently of potential future action. Russia's energy minister Alexander Novak told CNBC on Monday that OPEC and non-OPEC countries have the option of cutting deeper or extending the cuts, if necessary. Also, OPEC invited officials from Libya and Nigeria to its July monitoring meeting, which could foreshadow the attempt to remove their exemption from the cartel-wide cuts. However, both Libya and Nigeria will likely resist such a move. In any event, if the cap is removed it probably would not take place until the November meeting. That all suggests that the pressure on oil prices in the short term will come down to forthcoming data from the EIA, which will demonstrate whether or not the shale rebound will slow with prices below $50 per barrel. "Given that the market is now out of patience for large stock draws and increasingly concerned about next year's balances, we believe that price upside will need to be front-end driven, coming from observable near-term physical tightness and signs of a U.S. shale activity slowdown on a sustained basis in coming weeks," Goldman analysts wrote in their research note. If inventories fail to start declining at a faster rate, or the rig count fails to slow down, WTI prices could soon have a number that begins with a 3.

Oil major Royal Dutch Shell today revealed it will sell its stake in a gas project in Ireland for up to $1.23bn (£957m). The Anglo-Dutch company will sell Shell E&P Ireland, which holds a 45 per cent interest in the Corrib gas venture, after reaching an agreement with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB). "This transaction is part of our strategy to reshape Shell and to deliver a world class investment case," said the company's upstream director, Andy Brown. The oil company is half-way through a three-year $30bn divestment programme to cut debt following its $54bn acquisition of BG Group, and so far it has announced deals valued at more than $20bn. "This transaction is consistent with Shell’s strategy to concentrate our upstream footprint where we can add most value. I’m confident that Corrib will continue to deliver energy successfully to the people and businesses of Ireland," Brown said. Shell's stake in the gas project, which is located 83 kilometres off the northwest coast of Ireland, represented around 27,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in 2016. ​The field has a gross plant capacity of about 350m cubic feet of natural gas per day, and it provides approximately 60 per cent of Ireland’s natural gas consumption. The transaction will result in an impairment charge of around $350m for Shell, which will be taken in the second quarter of 2017. The deal is subject to regulatory approval, and it is expected to complete in the second quarter of 2018.​

Re Buywell's: "Everyone will have read the Volvo story by now ... no more internal combustion engined cars to be produced after 2019 ... all electric." I don't think that's quite right. See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40511024 The Chinese-owned carmaker [Volvo] caused great excitement on Wednesday when it said that every vehicle it launches from 2019 will have an electric motor. >>>> That is NOT all electric, so please don't post misleading remarks. The article continues: It is also worth asking just how electric we are talking. Volvo said it would introduce a "portfolio of electrified cars across its model range, embracing fully electric cars, plug-in hybrid cars and mild-hybrid cars". That covers a wide range of outcomes. Mild hybrids are essentially a standard car, typically with a petrol engine. But they have a larger battery which can help at low speeds. The battery is a booster for the engine, improving efficiency. But it only works at low speeds and for short distances - think of it as a helping hand as you pull away from the lights in a built-up, busy area. One large car company puts the fuel economy benefit for mild hybrids at about 6%, around towns and cities where it is most likely to be used. That is a far cry from the fully electric future espoused by Tesla, and other car companies. Fully electric vehicles remain expensive, both for carmakers and for customers. Meanwhile, a range of 250 to 300 miles still provides challenges. That is one reason the industry is also focused on so-called plug-in hybrids. These have an electric engine that can travel perhaps 50-60 miles, before a traditional petrol or diesel engine takes over. The trouble here, as with standard hybrids, is that the extra weight from the engines makes the car quite inefficient when it reverts to burning fossil fuels. Money Ultimately, lift-off for electric vehicles boils down to costs. Most electric vehicles are still loss-making for the carmakers, and more expensive for car buyers. Widespread adoption relies on lower energy and maintenance costs balancing a higher sticker price for the buyer (where the carmaker also makes some profit). Analysts at UBS recently upped their forecast for sales of electric vehicles, on the basis that this cost parity can be achieved earlier than expected. They see sales really picking up from 2020, forecasting that by 2025 electric vehicle sales could account for 14% of the car market.

Tesla uses Lithium-Ion batteries for its electric cars It is now launching a family priced M3 saloon car at around $30k , which is aimed at the mass market. Everyone will have read the Volvo story by now ... no more internal combustion engined cars to be produced after 2019 ... all electric. General Motors is now selling its Chevrolet Bolt EV for around $35K The Nissan Leaf EV is about to go on sale in the USA within months. Lithium-Ion batteries have reduced in price by around 80% in the last 10 years. Tesla has just made a huge factory to produce its own which it is now using for domestic power supplies 'powerwall' , and also for use in Electricity Main power station supplies. Read about its latest contract in South Australia. Now France has said it is going all electric cars , after the uK announced in the Queens speech that it would be looking to pass a new law to require all petrol stations and motorway service stations to have electric car charging points provided. Also Mercedes-Benz parent Daimler last Wednesday also announced plans to invest 5 billion Chinese renminbi ($740 million) in a battery plant in China that it will run with China-based BAIC. The partners plan to sell electric vehicles under the Mercedes brand name by 2020. Green vehicle demand is already booming in China. Forecasts are calling for sales of 580,000 units in 2017, an increase of 58 percent from 2016, even though the Chinese government eased up on subsidies. My point is Lithium-Ion batteries are getting cheaper and better , they will be the driver of the car market for the next 20 years. Within 10 years they are very likely to be cheaper also that a internal combustion engined equivalent plus running and maintenance costs will be less. OIL companies need to diversify or die. Footnote: It looks like the GM Chevrolet Bolt is hitting the Tesla 50% 2017 car sales growth target, and the Nissan Leaf will add to those problems , so it rests on M3 Tesla sales for the second half of 2017 to see where Tesla will end up ... thus far its car sales are up only 6%. Which is probably why the Tesla share price has dropped recently.

Electric cars will outsell fossil-fuel powered vehicles within two decades as battery prices plunge, turning the global auto industry upside down and signalling economic turmoil for oil-exporting countries. The Bloomberg New Energy Finance forecast says adoption of emission-free vehicles will happen more quickly than previously estimated because the cost of building cars is falling so fast. The seismic shift will see cars with a plug account for a third of the global auto fleet by 2040 and displace about 8 million barrels a day of oil production—more than the 7 million barrels Saudi Arabia exports today. “This is economics, pure and simple economics,” BNEF’s lead advanced-transportation analyst Colin McKerracher said before forecasts were published on Thursday. “Lithium-ion battery prices are going to come down sooner and faster than most other people expect.”
