The global economic crisis has hammered oil and gas prices, forcing Shell to slash dividends and write down the value of its assets.
Oil prices fell on Thursday after OPEC and other producers including Russia agreed to ease record supply curbs from August, though the drop was cushioned by tightening global inventories as economic activity picks up. Brent crude fell 35 cents, or 0.8%, to $43.44 a barrel by 0852 GMT. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude was down 49 cents, or 1.2%, to $40.47 per barrel.
