The largest U.S. energy companies reported robust profits on Friday, continuing a quarter in which the world’s big oil firms reported their strongest gains since a pronounced price crash began in 2014....
Shell’s Upstream segment saw its earnings plunge to about $1.3 billion in 2Q16 but saw a profit of ~$339 million in 2Q17.
Oil ended its strongest week this year with a surge on Friday, built on receding fears of oversupply, as U.S. crude came within striking distance of $50 a barrel for the first time since the end of May. U.S. crude settled at $49.71 a barrel, up 67 cents, or 1.4 percent, and on the week gained nearly 9 percent. U.S. crude and gasoline inventories fell much more steeply than expected in the latest week, while U.S. refineries processed an average of almost 17.3 million barrels of crude per day last week, up 620,000 bpd from the same week in 2016.
