Shell says electricity to meet 60% of China’s energy use by 2060

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – China may triple electricity generation to supply 60% of the country’s total energy under Beijing’s carbon-neutral goal by 2060, up from the current 23%, Royal Dutch Shell said on Monday.

Shell is one of the largest global investors in China’s energy sector, with business covering gas production, petrochemicals and a retail fuel network. A leading supplier of liquefied natural gas, it has recently expanded into low-carbon business such as hydrogen power and electric vehicle charging. read more

Shell Jumps Out Of Fire And Lands In The Frying Pan

Shell Jumps Out Of Fire And Lands In The Frying Pan

Zoltan Ban: Nov. 19, 2021
  • Shell’s move to exit the Dutch tax and legal jurisdiction is officially presented as an issue of dividend taxation that Shell and others hoped for years to see it repealed.
  • Though it is not much discussed by Shell or the media, the harsh environmental ruling by a Dutch court that forces Shell to cut emissions may have played a role.
  • Even though Shell is not currently faced with similar legal pressures in the UK, it may nevertheless feel other pressures to cut emissions by a similar margin.
  • Shell’s upstream segment is the most likely part of the business that will be sacrificed to environmental pressures.
  • Shell will most likely try to adapt its LNG and petrochemicals sector to lower emissions, that will make it less profitable. Higher natural gas prices will add to profitability concerns.

Investment thesis: Shell (RDS.A), (RDS.B) is leaving the Dutch legal jurisdiction, officially due to some dividend tax issues and it will make the UK its sole home base. Unofficially, it may be in large part a way to escape a court-imposed emissions reduction demand on its business activities. While the move to escape a legally binding cut of 45% compared with 2020 levels by 2030 is potentially avoided through this move, the internal, as well as external pressures for it to cut emissions, hydrocarbons production, and so on, will not cease. read more

Opinion: A message to oil companies: Change or have change forced upon you

Opinion: A message to oil companies: Change or have change forced upon you

Opinion by the Editorial Board May 29, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. GMT+1

IN A dramatic double whammy this week, Royal Dutch Shell and ExxonMobil, two enormous oil companies, each lost a high-profile fight against climate activists. The consequence is that two boardrooms may be forced to overturn their business strategies in favor of greener investments over the next decade. 

Change is coming, whether the industry likes it or not. 

In Royal Dutch Shell’s case, The Hague District Court declared that the company had contributed substantially to climate change and that its plan to address greenhouse emissions is insufficiently ambitious. Under the court’s order, Shell must ditch its strategy to cut its carbon intensity, which would not necessarily reduce the raw amount of emissions it releases into the atmosphere, and devise a way to nearly halve the emissions for which it is responsible by 2030. The decision could signal follow-on rulings against other big polluters subject to European courts. read more

‘Victory for our planet’: Royal Dutch Shell must cut emissions

‘Victory for our planet’: Royal Dutch Shell must cut emissions

The Hague District Court has ruled Royal Dutch Shell must cut its carbon emissions by 45% by 2030. The landmark case will likely set a global precedent for holding polluting multinational organizations accountable for curbing emissions.

By Mike Corder Associated Press

THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS

A Dutch court on Wednesday ordered Royal Dutch Shell to cut its carbon emissions by net 45% by 2030 compared to 2019 levels in a landmark case brought by climate activism groups, which hailed the decision as a victory for the planet. read more

The pace of emission reduction has to increase significantly at Shell, but how?

Bert van Dijk May 26, 8:58 PM

In brief

  • Shell must reduce the emissions of the judge much faster than it has now planned.
  • The company has plenty of options to do that, according to experts.
  • The major challenge lies in the obligation to make every effort to reduce emissions for customers.

… it has become clear that investing even more in exploration, looking for new oil and gas, is pointless. 

Charging points, hydrogen and biofuels

Shell itself wants to stick to the line it has set for the time being. “We are investing billions of dollars in low-carbon energy, including charging points for charging electric vehicles, hydrogen, renewables and biofuels. We want to increase the demand for these products and scale up our new energy companies even faster. ‘ read more

Houchen’s campaign has had a distinctly green tinge. He has campaigned on a ticket of clean industrial rebirth in an area ravaged by the closures of steel and chemicals works.

Hydrogen has been at its heart — an element that in just a few years has propelled into the mainstream.

Huge vested interests lie behind the rise of hydrogen: oil giants such as Shell, BP and Norway’s Equinor have staked their futures on natural gas as a less-polluting alternative to oil. read more

Shell treads ‘narrow path’ as scrutiny of Big Oil’s climate targets intensifies

Shell treads ‘narrow path’ as scrutiny of Big Oil’s climate targets intensifies

Author Yannic Rack: 22 April 2021

Oil and gas majors are under growing scrutiny to deliver on their climate pledges, with some investors and industry analysts still unconvinced that their transition can both deliver shareholder value and make a meaningful dent in reducing the pollution caused by their products.

Royal Dutch Shell PLC presented a strengthened climate plan to its shareholders in February, acknowledging for the first time that it will need to eliminate or offset all of its emissions — including those generated when its fuels are burned, which make up the bulk — to reach its 2050 net-zero goal. read more

Shell plays down risk of stranded oil and gas reserves

Shell plays down risk of stranded oil and gas reserves

Ron Bousso: April 15, 2021 Royal Dutch Shell said on Thursday the majority of its oil and gas reserves will be produced by 2050, playing down the risk of stranded assets as it prepares to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions in the coming decades.

The disclosure is a rare admission by a major oil and gas company that some of its reserves may be worthless in a world shifting to renewable energy from fossil fuels in an effort to stem global warming.

The Anglo-Dutch company said in a document to investors summarising its climate strategy that around 75% of its proved oil and gas reserves will be produced by 2030, with an additional 3% produced after 2040.

Since late 2019, Shell has wiped out over $20 billion from the value of its oil and gas reserves after lowering the outlook for commodity prices because of the energy transition and the impact on demand of the COVID-19 pandemic. read more

Shell hunts for hydrogen opportunities in Australia in net zero push

Shell hunts for hydrogen opportunities in Australia in net zero push

Sonali Paul: Thu, 25 March 2021, 8:50 am MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell is scouring Australia for opportunities to develop its hydrogen business, so far focused on projects in Europe, in its drive to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Shell Australia Chair Tony Nunan said the company sees hydrogen and carbon capture and storage as essential to the company’s net zero ambitions, and Australia is well placed to be competitive in both of those technologies.

Australia, like its biggest coal and gas customers China, Japan and South Korea, has mapped out a hydrogen strategy, with plans to become an exporter by 2030, using its vast wind and solar resources to produce “green” hydrogen and natural gas and carbon capture for “blue” hydrogen. read more
