Expert Comments:

D.M. Martins Research, Seeking Alpha (8/2/16)
"With the recent natural gas rally on the back of smaller-than-expected weekly inventory climb in the U.S., we believe Royal Dutch Shell Plc is in position to take advantage of the higher price. . .Royal Dutch Shell owns a strong and diversified portfolio of global energy businesses, which we believe will help drive long-term growth as commodities price recovers. The company has further solidified its position with the recent BG acquisition, which helps increase the company's oil reserve by over 25%."

Trefis (6/9/16)
Royal Dutch Shell Plc's upstream operations, which include crude oil and natural gas liquids and the natural gas division, contribute more than 75% of the company's total value by our estimates. . .the company currently holds enough reserves to produce oil and gas for the next 12 years at the the current production rate. . .Shell, being the world's largest supplier of LNG, with more than 8% share of the global installed LNG capacity, expects to further improve its leadership position by increasing its LNG capacity with the Gorgon, Prelude and Elba projects under construction.

Carl Surran, Seeking Alpha (6/8/16)
"Royal Dutch Shell Plc is higher after Evercore ISI upgrades shares to Buy from Hold with a $64 price target, applauding the company's decision to embrace a strategy that values shareholder returns over growth. . .the firm believes investors will assign the stock a higher valuation if Shell can successfully carry out its new strategy. . .the firm says the change differentiates Shell from its supermajor peers, adding that while value creation is harder to achieve, accountability, organizational effectiveness and shareholder value stand to increase considerably."

Nilanjan Choudhury, Zacks Investment Research (5/4/16)
"Royal Dutch Shell Plc reported better-than-expected first-quarter earnings on higher production and aggressive cost cutting measures. . .with its outperformance, Shell joins integrated peers like Exxon Mobil and BP in braving low oil prices to post an earnings beat. . .the Hague-based Shell reported earnings per ADR (on a current cost of supplies basis)—excluding one-time items and gains or losses from inventories—of $0.43, above the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.26."

Zacks Investment Research (3/30/16)
"Royal Dutch Shell Plc is reportedly considering the divestment of some of its North Sea assets to regain its financial health post the 35B GBP acquisition of BG Group last month. The company intends to divest assets worth as much as $30B over 2016–2018. . .Shell believes that its North Sea assets are old and mature and, hence, worth selling."

Zacks Equity Research (2/16/16)
"Almost a year after entering into the deal, integrated energy major Royal Dutch Shell Plc closed its merger with BG Group. . .following the closure of the transaction, Shell has become the biggest liquefied natural gas firm in the world. On top of that, the company will now get access to significant resources off the coast of Brazil." -Zacks Equity Research
