BEIJING/GUANGZHOU (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) to build its first commercial-scale polycarbonate production plant in the southern Chinese city of Huizhou. Polycarbonate is a transparent and impact-resistant polymer, widely used to make vehicle headlights and LED spotlights.
Shell thinks aviation fuel will be one of the critical growth areas to explore, as ground vehicle transportation fuel and other segments are expected to decline over time
Royal Dutch Shell Plc is looking to sell its oil refinery in Anacortes, Washington, according to three people familiar with the matter. If completed, this and other asset sales currently underway would reduce Shell's North American refining operations to large plants on the U.S. Gulf Coast, said the people, speaking on condition of anonymity as the talks are private. Oil and gas major Shell has publicly committed to selling more than $5 billion (3.8 billion pounds) of assets per year in 2019 and 2020.
(Bloomberg) -- Royal Dutch Shell Plc is seeking a bigger share of Mexico’s fuel market, even as regulatory changes make it harder for foreign companies to compete.The Anglo-Dutch oil major, which already owns about 200 gasoline stations in 12 states in Mexico, plans to grow its share of the retail fuel market to as much as 15% from 1% now. The company also plans to import more of the fuel it sells in Mexico, the bulk of which it continues to buy from state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos. Today, about 30% of that fuel is imported by train into the state of Guanajuato.“When you think of the market in Mexico we have the chance of being fully integrated,” Murray Fonseca, Shell’s downstream director for Mexico, said in an interview. “If the conditions stay the same, Mexico will become a heartland for Shell.”The company’s investments come as the leftist government of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has sought to bolster Pemex’s position in the sector, while dialing back the prior administration’s free-market reforms. Under his government, Mexico has moved to roll back regulations designed to level the playing field against Pemex, and has slowed the process for approving fuel-import permits.$1 Billion InvestmentWhile analysts have raised concerns that the changes could stifle foreign investment, Shell is staying the course.“We’re not thinking about pulling back,” Fonseca said. “As a matter of fact, we’re planning to invest more heavily in 2020 than we did in 2019.”Eventually, Shell expects to produce oil in Mexico, having snapped up 11 blocks in the country’s most competitive offshore oil auctions, and transport it to the company’s U.S. refineries for processing. Shell would then sell the refined product back to Mexicans.The company also aims to have 1,500 service stations open in Mexico over the next five years and is looking to launch its first electric car charging station in Mexico this year, said Fonseca. It plans to invest about $1 billion in the coming decade in service stations and other infrastructure, and aims to double the number of employees in its fuel retail business in Mexico over the next five years.Shell’s plan to boost fuel imports relies on the opening this year of two new terminals in Tuxpan and Tula owned by Mexico City-based Invex, which will bring its product by ship from its Deer Park, Texas, refinery complex on the U.S. Gulf Coast, a joint venture between Shell and PMI, Pemex’s trading arm, and other refineries on the Gulf coast. The company began importing by rail last year.Even so, Mexico’s lack of energy infrastructure and market uncertainties could affect whether Shell succeeds in increasing imports. While foreign companies including BP Plc, Chevron Corp and Exxon Mobil Corp have begun bringing in their own fuel, many gasoline retailers continue to rely on Pemex for the bulk of their supply needs because it owns the vast majority of storage terminals and pipelines.“We need to take a look at it on an almost month-by-month basis,” Fonseca said. “But rest assured, we’re going to increase the supply envelope.”(Adds additional information on Shell’s fuel retail business in eighth paragraph.

Royal Dutch Shell's New Energies boss Mark Gainsborough will step down in April and be replaced by Elisabeth Brinton, who joined the business in 2018 and will oversee the company's plans to expand its low-carbon and power business. Gainsborough, a 39-year Shell veteran, set up Shell's New Energies four years ago as the oil and gas company faces heavy investor pressure to meet the 2015 Paris climate agreement to limit global warming. A Shell spokeswoman confirmed the moves.
