NEW YORK (Reuters) – A U.S. appeals court on Friday said Exxon Mobil Corp and Royal Dutch Shell Plc affiliates may try to enforce part of a $1.8 billion arbitration award against Nigeria’s state-run oil company, in a dispute concerning oil extraction near the African country’s coastline.

It said the judge should have determined which parts of the award had been deemed enforceable by a Nigerian appeals court. Lawyers for the companies did not immediately respond to requests for comment. read more

Fact Check: Was Amy Coney Barrett’s Father an Attorney for Shell Oil?

BY ON 7/1/22 AT 10:11 AM EDT

The U.S. Supreme Court‘s recent decision to rule against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in a highly important case about carbon emissions has led to criticism of the six justices who voted in the majority.

The Court found that the EPA can no longer regulate emissions from U.S. power plants, with the three liberal justices dissenting in one of the final cases of this judicial term.

Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett was part of the majority and many critics took to social media to claim that Barrett’s father had once been worked for Shell, a major oil company, and suggested that that had informed her decision-making. read more

Shell profits jump 43% to £7.2 billion amid calls for windfall tax

Evening Standard

Shell profits jump 43% to £7.2 billion amid calls for windfall tax

By Oscar Williams-Grut City Editor @OscarWGrut: 5 MAY 2022

Oil giant Shell has announced a huge jump in profits amid growing calls for a windfall tax on oil and gas giants.

Royal Dutch Shell reported underlying profits of $9.1 billion (£7.2 billion) in the first quarter, up 43% on the final three months of 2021 thanks to soaring oil and gas prices.

The huge profits are likely to reignite calls for a windfall tax on energy giants. A one-off tax on BP and Shell alone could raise £9 billion for the Treasury, the Liberal Democrats estimate. read more

Huge profits at BP and Shell revive calls for windfall tax to tackle fuel poverty

Huge profits at BP and Shell revive calls for windfall tax to tackle fuel poverty

London (CNN Business) – News that Britain’s biggest oil companies made $32 billion in profit last year is stoking calls for the UK government to impose a temporary tax on their earnings to help households pay soaring energy bills.

Reporting earnings on Tuesday, BP (BP) posted an annual profit of almost $12.9 billion. Shell (RDSA) reported a profit of $19.3 billion last week after what it described as a “momentous” year. Profits at both companies have been boosted by a huge rebound in oil and natural gas prices after they collapsed at the start of the pandemic. The bumper earnings have allowed them to accelerate investments in lower carbon and renewable energy projects while also handing billions of dollars to investors in the form of dividends and share buybacks. Between them, BP and Shell spent $7.7 billion buying back shares last year, and the windfall for investors looks set to continue. BP said it expected to be able to deliver share buybacks of $4 billion per year, while Shell announced plans to hand back $8.5 billion to shareholders in the first half of 2022, including proceeds from last year’s sale of its assets in the Permian Basin in the United States. The huge profits coincide with the announcement that energy bills for most UK households will rise by 54% in April, fueling a cost-of-living crisis that the Bank of England has forecast will mean the biggest drop in disposable incomes in decades.

Shell ends 2021 on high note, hikes dividend, buybacks again

By 
  • Q4 21 profits soar to $6.4 bln, highest since Q1 2014
  • Results boosted by strong LNG trading
  • Company boosts 2022 spending plans

LONDON, Feb 3 (Reuters) – Shell (SHEL.L) again boosted its dividend and share repurchases on Thursday after fourth quarter profits hit their highest in eight years, fuelled by higher oil and gas prices and strong gas trading performance.

The strong results cap a year of dramatic recovery for Shell and the oil and gas sector after energy demand and prices collapsed in 2020 in the wake of the Coronavirus epidemic.

Shell shares were up 1.2% by 1015 GMT, compared with a 0.1% decline for the broader European energy index (.SXEP). read more
