Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte survived a censure vote in the early hours of Thursday called by lawmakers who believe he withheld information about how his Cabinet reached an unpopular decision to scrap a tax on dividends. Almost all opposition lawmakers believe Rutte misled them when he said in November he did not remember there being any memos prepared during negotiations on the issue. On Tuesday, the government released nearly 60 pages of documentation uncovered after a freedom of information request.
Eni (LSE: 0N9S.L - news) executive Roberto Casula has taken a leave of absence from the Italian oil major, a company spokesman said on Wednesday without giving any reason for the decision. "As covered by general contractual terms, Mr Casula has asked the company for a period of temporary leave of absence," the spokesman said in emailed comments. Casula, a former head of Africa operations for the state-controlled major, is currently being investigated by Milan prosecutors in a case involving alleged corruption in the Congo Republic.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was summoned to parliament on Wednesday to explain how the government decided to get rid of a tax opposed by big businesses, after the overnight release of confidential memos describing lobbying by Unilever (NYSE: UL - news) and Shell (LSE: RDSB.L - news) . The opposition has criticised last year's move to scrap a 15 percent tax on dividends paid by multinational businesses. It has now become the centre of a political storm for Rutte, who had repeatedly said he had no memory of documents showing the decision-making process.
The future of Mexico's successful energy reform appears uncertain as presidential candidate, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador advocates constrained freedom for the sector.
The scrapping of a Dutch tax on dividends was "decisive" for Unilever (NYSE: UL - news) in deciding whether it would choose the Netherlands or Britain as its base, according to memos released by the Dutch government as part of a domestic political row on Tuesday. The memos compiled in the summer of 2017 as Prime Minister Mark Rutte was engaged in negotiations to form a government recorded lobbying by both Shell (LSE: RDSB.L - news) and Unilever against the tax, which forced them to maintain awkward dual share structures in order to ensure British investors were not disadvantaged.

Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) has snapped up more than 8 million barrels of Middle East and Russian crude oil loading in June and resold some cargoes at higher premiums as it profits from robust demand in Asia, five trading sources said on Friday. The region's pull on Middle East and Russian grades, priced off Middle East crude benchmark Dubai, has strengthened this month as a widening of Brent's premium to Dubai has made competing Atlantic Basin supplies more expensive. Asia's crude demand is also set to rise in the third quarter as refiners return from maintenance to ramp up output to meet peak summer oil consumption.
Italian energy group Eni (Euronext: ENI.NX - news) is considering stepping up its investment in nuclear fusion, potentially doubling down on a technology considered so uncertain that Eni (LSE: 0N9S.L - news) remains the only global oil company prepared to place a bet on it. Eni and bigger rivals such as Shell (LSE: RDSB.L - news) and BP have been looking at moving into renewable energy as climate change, the falling cost of solar and wind power and a shift to electric vehicles raise doubts over long-term demand for oil. Eni last month committed $50 million to one of several projects aiming to produce energy by fusing atoms at temperatures as hot as the sun, a process seen by doubters as still closer to science fiction than commercial reality.
