    Oil slips as U.S. gasoline stock build overshadows crude draw

    NEW YORK, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 13 (Reuters) - Oil prices dipped on Wednesday as a slump in U.S. crude stockpiles was offset by a larger-than-forecast rise in gasoline inventories and as U.S. crude output continued to grow to record highs. U.S. crude inventories last week dropped 5.1 million barrels, more than anticipated, and production hit another new record high at 9.78 million barrels per day (bpd), government data showed.

    Rosneft says EU sanctions aim to favour rivals

    Russian energy group Rosneft (ROSN.MM) told the Luxembourg-based European General Court on Wednesday that European Union sanctions on Russia aimed to undermine its position on global energy markets and favoured its competitors. State-controlled Rosneft is challenging the EU sanctions, imposed in 2014 and 2015 for Moscow's role in Ukraine's crisis. Rosneft is challenging the sanctions in the European General Court and in the High Court of Justice of England and Wales.

    Broken pipeline cuts British supply during peak energy demand

    Britain's biggest pipeline from its North Sea oil and gas fields is likely to be shut for several weeks for repairs, its operator said on Tuesday, disrupting gas flows and sending international crude prices to their highest since mid-2015. "We are working to get the pipeline restored to full operation as quickly as we can safely do so... We have previously indicated a time frame of three to four weeks and we believe it is no less than two," operator INEOS said in a email to customers seen by Reuters. It has particular significance to global markets because Forties is the largest out of the five crude oil streams that underpin the dated Brent benchmark, against which other crude prices are broadly based.

    Britain's biggest oil pipeline shut "for weeks" for repairs

    LONDON, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 11 (Reuters) - Britain's largest oil pipeline could shut down for weeks for unscheduled repair work, sending the price of crude to new two-year highs and triggering a steep rally in natural gas prices, just as a cold snap sweeps the country. The Forties Pipeline System, which carries around 450,000 barrels per day of Forties crude from the North Sea to the Kinneil processing terminal in Scotland, had been operating at reduced capacity since December 7 when a routine inspection revealed a small leak. Ineos, a privately owned Anglo-Swiss chemicals company, owns the pipeline and said it had taken the decision to close the system completely.

    Iraq oil min says Kirkuk oil swap deal with Iran is for one year

    KUWAIT, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 10 (Reuters) - Iraqi Oil Minister Jabar al-Luaibi said on Sunday that a deal signed with Tehran to swap up to 60,000 barrels per day of crude produced from the northern Iraqi Kirkuk oilfield for Iranian oil is for one year and subject to renewal. The agreement signed on Friday by the two OPEC countries provides for Iran to deliver to Iraq's southern ports, on the Gulf, "oil of the same characteristics and in the same quantities" as those it would receive from Kirkuk. "This is an agreement for one year and then we will see after that whether to renew it," Luaibi told reporters in Kuwait City on the sidelines of an Arab oil ministerial meeting.

    Former BP boss Browne back with what he knows best - oil mergers

    For Lord John Browne, the former chief of oil major BP, it feels like time has been rolled back 20 years and he is busy doing mega-mergers again. Browne, who led BP's transformational acquisitions of Arco and Amoco in the 1990s, has helped with the merger of DEA, a vehicle of Russian billionaire Mikhail Fridman, and Wintershall, the oil and gas unit of chemical giant BASF. It will become the biggest independent oil and gas firm in Europe and the first German champion in the sector, with output of around 600,000 barrels of oil and gas equivalent per day and estimated annual earnings of more than 2 billion euros (£1.7 billion).

    BASF agrees oil unit merger with Fridman's DEA to spur expansion

    FRANKFURT/LONDON (Reuters) - Chemical giant BASF (BASFn.DE) agreed to merge its oil and gas unit Wintershall with DEA, a vehicle of Russian billionaire Mikhail Fridman, to create one of the largest independent oil and gas firms in Europe, the companies said. Fridman and his partners in the LetterOne investment vehicle made billions by selling their Russian oil empire in 2013 but have since struggled to expand in the United States and Britain due to sanctions imposed on Moscow despite not being under sanctions themselves. By folding DEA into Wintershall and creating Germany's first oil champion, cash-rich Fridman could create new opportunities for growth in large Western markets.

    Investors wean themselves off oil as electric future beckons

    European oil shares, having been for so long the dividend darlings of income funds, are losing their pulling power as investors take another look at the long term future of energy companies focused on fossil fuels. A proposal by the world's largest $1 trillion (£0.8 trillion) sovereign wealth fund to ditch its oil and gas shares because of the volatile oil price, has highlighted the risks of being exposed to a sector which analysts say is in long term decline. Investors are pulling money out of exchange traded funds (ETFs) tracking global oil and gas stocks.

    Shell signals return to pure cash dividend, focus on renewables

    Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: 0LN9.L - news) will return to paying pure cash dividends and step up its investment in cleaner energy as it turns a corner after more than two years of cost cuts and disposals prompted by weak oil prices. Shell Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden sought to strike a balance between reassuring investors it can increase returns in its core fossil fuel business during an "era of volatility" in oil prices while preparing to step up investments in renewables. The Anglo-Dutch company said it will abolish its scrip dividend, through which investors can opt to receive dividends in shares or cash, in the fourth quarter of 2017.
