The Energy Report Interview with Keith Schaefer
"All the big discoveries are now in gas. That's why the majors like Royal Dutch Shell Plc are moving toward gas."

"Royal Dutch Shell Plc has become a leader in providing liquefied natural gas under the guidance of [CEO] Peter Voser. While his departure will not affect the operations of the multi-billion giant, the route taken into the future remains to be decided over time. . .the company reported profits worth $7.95B, a 3.5% improvement from last year. Shell has also increased its dividend by 5%. It is investing heavily for future growth as it diversifies its global assets into places that offer more efficiency. Shell has announced investments in a number of projects, including a deepwater project in Nigeria and an oil recovery project in Oman. It also has agreed to purchase part of Repsol's liquefied natural gas portfolio outside North America. In the U.K., it increased its majority stake in the offshore Schiehallion oilfield west of the Shetland Islands. Earlier this week, it was announced that Shell had beaten France's Total to a £10B deal to develop the Bab gas field with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company."

"Almost 35% of Royal Dutch Shell Plc's capital employed is tied up in new projects that are beginning to come on stream, projected to add 700 Mboe/d of new production through 2017–2018, over 20% of 2012's level. Shell aims to generate $175–200B in total cash flow from 2012 to 2015 compared to capital spending of $120–130B; this significant free cash flow will allow Shell to make new investments, raise the dividend, and buy back shares, which should boost valuation. . .a high dividend yield and strong balance sheet make Royal Dutch Shell shares attractive to conservative investors, in our view."
The Energy Report Interview with David Eifrig
"For retirement capital allocation, I like classic leader[s] in the oil and gas industry [like] Royal Dutch Shell Plc. For decades, these companies have seen business cycles come and go; they have seen political unrest in countries that they do business in. They will keep grinding away, doing business and making returns on their capital, and supporting a nominal amount of income through dividends. It just makes sense to be there with them in the long term."
The Energy Report Interview with Marin Katusa
"Major producers, such as Royal Dutch Shell Plc, can find financing."
