    Exclusive: No choice but to invest in oil, Shell CEO says

    Royal Dutch Shell still sees abundant opportunity to make money from oil and gas in coming decades even as investors and governments increase pressure on energy companies over climate change, its chief executive said. Shell, which supplies around 3% of the world's energy, set out in 2017 a plan to halve the intensity of its greenhouse emissions by the middle of the century, based in large part on building one of the world's biggest power businesses. A defiant van Beurden rejected a rising chorus from climate activists and parts of the investor community to transform radically the 112-year-old Anglo-Dutch company's traditional business model.

    Greenpeace activists boarded two Royal Dutch Shell oil platforms in the British North Sea on Monday in protest against plans to leave parts of the giant structures in place after production shuts down. Shell confirmed that protesters boarded the Brent Alpha platform and the Brent Bravo concrete legs. Shell is in the process of dismantling the 40-year-old Brent field east of the Shetland islands, in what is known as decommissioning, as its oil and gas reserves dwindle after producing more than 500,000 barrels a day at their peak in the 1980s.

    HOUSTON/NEW YORK/LONDON, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Rates to charter oil tankers from the Arab Gulf, United Kingdom and the U.S. Gulf Coast to Asia surged to fresh highs on Friday as global oil traders grappled with a tanker shortage in the aftermath of U.S. sanctions on units of Chinese giant COSCO. Occidental Petroleum Corp tentatively chartered a supertanker to ship U.S. crude from the U.S. Gulf Coast to Asia for a record $15.8 million this week, three sources said on Friday.

    Race for German utility EWE down to two suitors - sources

    The number of suitors for a minority stake in EWE has been boiled down to two as the one of the year's biggest utility deals in Germany edges towards the finishing line, three people close to the matter said. A consortium comprised of Australian infrastructure investor Macquarie and German insurer Allianz is vying with French buyout group Ardian for the stake, which could be valued at 1.2 billion to 1.4 billion euros ($1.3-$1.5 billion), they said. EWE and the suitors either declined to comment or were not immediately available for comment.

    UPDATE 3-Brazil raises $2.2 bln in oil auction; Total, Petronas invest big

    Ten companies on Thursday agreed to pay more than $2 billion for the exploration and production rights in 12 offshore oil blocks in Brazil, in what could be a promising sign for even bigger upcoming oil auctions. The most heavily sought after areas in the Thursday auction directly border Brazil's so-called pre-salt area, a coveted zone in which billions of barrels of oil are trapped under a thick layer of salt beneath the ocean floor. The biggest move came from a France's Total SA, which, in a consortium with Malaysia's Petronas and Qatar Petroleum, dropped 4.029 billion reais for one block abutting the pre-salt area.

    Shell to offset carbon emissions for British fuel buyers

    Royal Dutch Shell said on Thursday it would offset the carbon dioxide emissions of around 1.5 million road users in Britain starting later this month under a loyalty scheme. Shell, like other oil companies, has come under pressure from shareholders to show how it plans to reduce its carbon footprint and help cut greenhouse gas emissions, a major cause of global warming. Britons are increasingly concerned about their environmental impact, with thousands of students striking earlier this year and green group Extinction Rebellion carrying out civil disobedience to push for more ambition on climate change.

    Oil Jumps as Rockets Rain on Turkey, Deepening Conflict Worries

    (Bloomberg) -- Oil climbed after simmering tensions between Turkey and Syria erupted into a shooting war, heightening geopolitical concerns on the edge of one of the world’s most important crude-producing regions. Futures rose as much as 2% in New York, halting two sessions of losses. A 2.93 million-barrel increase in U.S. crude inventories that exceeded the forecasts of more than 70% of analysts in a Bloomberg survey wasn’t enough to defuse the bullish momentum.Turkey formally announced the commencement of military intervention in Syria on Wednesday, just days after U.S. President Donald Trump said he wouldn’t stand in the way. That was followed within hours by a report that rockets fired from Syria struck a Turkish town.Oil prices had been on a downward trend after spiking in mid-September in the wake of attacks on Saudi Arabia’s energy industry. Signals that China might accept a limited deal with the U.S., as well as signs of a weakening dollar, were supportive to prices.West Texas Intermediate for November delivery rose 97 cents to $53.60 a barrel at 11:39 a.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange.Brent for December settlement gained 95 cents to $59.19 on the London-based ICE Futures Europe Exchange. The global benchmark crude traded at a $5.63 premium to WTI for the same month.The Energy Information Administration on Wednesday reported that U.S. inventories of gasoline and diesel last week declined more than analysts in a Bloomberg survey expected. Crude stockpiles at the key storage hub in Cushing, Oklahoma, rose by 941,000 barrels.Meanwhile, the long-running U.S.-China trade deadlock appeared to thaw after Beijing indicated it’s open to reaching a partial trade deal with the U.S. The dispute has weighed on energy markets for months because it undermines global economic growth that dictates fuel demand.Two days of U.S.-China talks start Thursday in Washington. While negotiators aren’t optimistic about securing a broad agreement that would end the trade war, China would accept a partial deal as long as the Trump administration doesn’t impose any more tariffs, according to an official who asked not to be named because the discussions are private.\--With assistance from Elizabeth Low and Alex Longley.To contact the reporters on this story: Joe Carroll in Houston at jcarroll8@bloomberg.net;Sheela Tobben in New York at vtobben@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Marino at dmarino4@bloomberg.net, Joe Carroll, Mike JeffersFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Shell CEO Says Blaming Oil Suppliers Won’t Solve Climate Change

    (Bloomberg) -- The world can’t solve the problem of climate change solely by blaming energy producers like Royal Dutch Shell Plc, said the company’s top executive.Speaking at an event in London that was disrupted by protesters accusing attendees of destroying the planet, Shell Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden said the oil industry has to take radical steps to reduce carbon emissions, but consumers must do the same.“It’s us as a society that needs to transform, not just the suppliers of energy,” van Beurden said in a Bloomberg TV interview on the sidelines of the Oil & Money conference on Wednesday. “If you want to decarbonize the energy system, it’s not about forcing people to take lower-carbon supply.”Oil majors are under increasing pressure from investors and the public to move more quickly away from planet-warming fossil fuels. Shell is investing in wind farms, electric car charging and hydrogen, while also continuing to pump billions into its traditional fossil fuels business.“We are not Big Oil, we are Big Energy,” van Beurden said. In a nod to climate change and the energy transition, the Oil & Money conference will next year change its name to the Energy Intelligence Forum.Squeezing major oil companies isn’t the answer to climate change, the pressure must be applied equally to consumers, van Beurden said.“Climate change is the biggest challenge facing the energy industry, but the energy industry is not the biggest challenge for a world trying to tackle climate change,” he said. “We do not pump oil and gas from the ground and then leave it sitting in storage facilities. People consume it. They drive. They cook. They run their businesses.”While van Beurden and his peers sought to highlight their investments in sustainable energy and carbon reduction, none of them have embraced the more radical steps sought by Extinction Rebellion, which made repeated incursions into the London event to noisily demand the elimination of all greenhouse gas emissions by 2025.“You can see the acceleration of how society is mobilized, which I think is a good thing,” van Beurden said. But the world needs “a more mature debate where suppliers and users of energy join to figure out how to do things.”To contact the reporters on this story: Kelly Gilblom in London at kgilblom@bloomberg.net;Annmarie Hordern in London at ahordern1@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.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
