    Oil CEOs at Davos Debate Tougher CO2 Cuts as Pressure Mounts

    (Bloomberg) -- Sign up here to receive the Davos Diary, a special daily newsletter that will run from Jan. 20-24.The bosses of some of the world’s biggest oil companies discussed adopting much more ambitious carbon targets at a closed-door meeting in Davos, a sign of how much pressure they’re under from activists and investors to address climate change.The meeting, part of a World Economic Forum dominated by climate issues, included a debate on widening the industry’s target to include reductions in emissions from the fuels they sell, not just the greenhouse gases produced by their own operations, people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.The talks between the chief executive officers of companies including Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Chevron Corp., Total SA, Saudi Aramco, Equinor ASA and BP Plc showed general agreement on the need to move toward this broader definition, known as Scope 3, the people said, asking not to be named because the session was closed to the press. The executives didn’t take any final decisions.Shell and Aramco declined to comment. Media representatives for Chevron, Total and BP weren’t immediately able to respond to requests for comment. Equinor confirmed its CEO Eldar Saetre attended the meeting.Climate FocusTargeting Scope 3 emissions would be a big shift for an industry that produces the bulk of the world’s planet-warming emissions, once that could eventually require them to sell far less oil and gas. The simple fact that the industry’s top executives were considering it underscored how climate concerns suddenly came into focus in Davos this year.For the first time, environmental risks occupied the WEF’s top five long-term concerns. Business leaders from BlackRock Inc. CEO Larry Fink to Allianz SE boss Oliver Baete used their platform at the event to focus on sustainable investment. The two highest-profile attendees at the forum -- President Donald Trump and climate activist Greta Thunberg -- made headlines as they staked out opposing positions on the issue.The oil and gas executives debated a document produced by the WEF on “neutralizing emissions at the pump,” a reference to the gasoline and diesel sold to customers. There’s an urgent need to shift the industry’s target from production to emissions from end users, said one person.Several companies have already set targets for Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gases, which come directly from pumping and refining hydrocarbons. Yet these account for less than 10% of total emissions from the life cycle of oil and gas. Some of their pledges have also focused on curbing emissions intensity -- the amount of carbon dioxide released per unit of energy -- which wouldn’t necessarily lead to a reduction in the volume of greenhouse gases produced if a company’s output is growing.Among major energy groups, only Shell, Total and Madrid-based Repsol SA have publicly announced that they are either targeting or monitoring Scope 3 emissions.The Spanish company made the boldest move, promising net-zero emissions in 2050 by diverting investment into wind and solar power. Shell has taken more modest steps, pledging to offset the greenhouse gases produced by fuel sold to drivers on their loyalty-card programs in the U.K. and Netherlands.Eni SpA Chairman Emma Marcegaglia said in a Bloomberg TV interview that the company is committed to becoming carbon neutral on a Scope 1 and 2 basis by 2030. The Italian oil and gas giant is in discussions about Scope 3 emissions, but needs more guidance from the government on how to do so, she said.Other companies, notably U.S. majors Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron have so far resisted specific pledges to cut total emissions, with the latter focusing instead on the carbon intensity of the energy it produces. BP CEO Bob Dudley, who retires later this year, has agreed aims for Scope 1 and 2 gases but in the past opposed a Scope 3 target.“We need to reduce our carbon intensity, everyone in the industry agrees on that,” Dudley said in an interview in Davos. However, he cautioned that shareholders and companies were using multiple definitions of Scope 3 emissions. “We need to get a common definition” so the industry “can work together in a powerful way.”(Updates with Aramco comment in fourth paragraph)\--With assistance from Laura Hurst, Francois de Beaupuy, Matthew Martin, Francine Lacqua and Mikael Holter.To contact the reporter on this story: Javier Blas in Davos at jblas3@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: James Herron at jherron9@bloomberg.net, Rakteem KatakeyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Nigeria charges ex-attorney general with financial crimes in $1.3 bln oil deal

    Nigeria's financial crimes watchdog charged a former attorney general suspected of taking bribes to facilitate a $1.3 billion oil block sale, the agency said on Tuesday, in the latest twist in one of the industry's biggest alleged corruption scandals. An international investigation into the 2011 sale of the offshore oilfield known as OPL 245 by Malabu Oil and Gas has entangled two of the industry's biggest players, Shell and Eni, as well as an array of powerful figures from the previous Nigerian government. Mohammed Adoke, Nigeria's ex-attorney general, was charged with receiving the U.S. dollar equivalent of 300 million naira in 2013 to facilitate the OPL 245 deal and help waive taxes for Shell and Eni, according to a charge sheet filed in an Abuja high court last week.

    Police detain 185 climate protesters at Brussels car show

    Police detained 185 protesters in central Brussels on Saturday after the environmental protest group Extinction Rebellion staged demonstrations at a car show in protest at the auto industry's role in CO2 emissions that cause climate change. The protest came only days after the European Commission unveiled ideas on how to finance its flagship Green Deal project that aims to make the European Union a CO2 emissions-neutral area by 2050, in part through the transformation of the car industry. A member and former spokesman for the group, Christophe Meierhans, said Extinction Rebellion targeted the car industry because it told "a lot of lies in order to sell more cars".

    Shell Brings Fuel to Mexico in Push for 15% of Retail Market

    (Bloomberg) -- Royal Dutch Shell Plc is seeking a bigger share of Mexico’s fuel market, even as regulatory changes make it harder for foreign companies to compete.The Anglo-Dutch oil major, which already owns about 200 gasoline stations in 12 states in Mexico, plans to grow its share of the retail fuel market to as much as 15% from 1% now. The company also plans to import more of the fuel it sells in Mexico, the bulk of which it continues to buy from state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos. Today, about 30% of that fuel is imported by train into the state of Guanajuato.“When you think of the market in Mexico we have the chance of being fully integrated,” Murray Fonseca, Shell’s downstream director for Mexico, said in an interview. “If the conditions stay the same, Mexico will become a heartland for Shell.”The company’s investments come as the leftist government of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has sought to bolster Pemex’s position in the sector, while dialing back the prior administration’s free-market reforms. Under his government, Mexico has moved to roll back regulations designed to level the playing field against Pemex, and has slowed the process for approving fuel-import permits.$1 Billion InvestmentWhile analysts have raised concerns that the changes could stifle foreign investment, Shell is staying the course.“We’re not thinking about pulling back,” Fonseca said. “As a matter of fact, we’re planning to invest more heavily in 2020 than we did in 2019.”Eventually, Shell expects to produce oil in Mexico, having snapped up 11 blocks in the country’s most competitive offshore oil auctions, and transport it to the company’s U.S. refineries for processing. Shell would then sell the refined product back to Mexicans.The company also aims to have 1,500 service stations open in Mexico over the next five years and is looking to launch its first electric car charging station in Mexico this year, said Fonseca. It plans to invest about $1 billion in the coming decade in service stations and other infrastructure, and aims to double the number of employees in its fuel retail business in Mexico over the next five years.Shell’s plan to boost fuel imports relies on the opening this year of two new terminals in Tuxpan and Tula owned by Mexico City-based Invex, which will bring its product by ship from its Deer Park, Texas, refinery complex on the U.S. Gulf Coast, a joint venture between Shell and PMI, Pemex’s trading arm, and other refineries on the Gulf coast. The company began importing by rail last year.Even so, Mexico’s lack of energy infrastructure and market uncertainties could affect whether Shell succeeds in increasing imports. While foreign companies including BP Plc, Chevron Corp and Exxon Mobil Corp have begun bringing in their own fuel, many gasoline retailers continue to rely on Pemex for the bulk of their supply needs because it owns the vast majority of storage terminals and pipelines.“We need to take a look at it on an almost month-by-month basis,” Fonseca said. “But rest assured, we’re going to increase the supply envelope.”(Adds additional information on Shell’s fuel retail business in eighth paragraph. An earlier version corrected a company statement about the percentage of fuel Shell imports into Mexico, in second paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Amy Stillman in Mexico City at astillman7@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Marino at dmarino4@bloomberg.net, Jessica SummersFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Royal Dutch Shell's New Energies boss Mark Gainsborough will step down in April and be replaced by Elisabeth Brinton, who joined the business in 2018 and will oversee the company's plans to expand its low-carbon and power business. Gainsborough, a 39-year Shell veteran, set up Shell's New Energies four years ago as the oil and gas company faces heavy investor pressure to meet the 2015 Paris climate agreement to limit global warming. A Shell spokeswoman confirmed the moves.
