Formerly sceptical investors are buying back into oil majors in the hope that upcoming results will mark a turning point for energy stocks which have failed to keep pace with a surge in crude prices. Oil stocks could begin to close that gap if results live up to lofty expectations, with Goldman Sachs predicting the strongest free cash flow figures in a decade for the sector. Oil is the best-performing global asset this year, with Brent crude up 11.4 percent since January, but energy stocks have continued to lag the commodity.
By Danilo Masoni and Kit Rees MILAN/LONDON (Reuters) - The UK's top share index rose on Thursday as surging crude oil prices boosted commodity stocks and Shire's shares jumped as bid talk heated up. The ...
Italian energy group Eni (ENI.MI) is considering stepping up its investment in nuclear fusion, potentially doubling down on a technology considered so uncertain that Eni remains the only global oil company prepared to place a bet on it. Eni and bigger rivals such as Shell (RDSa.L) and BP (BP.L) have been looking at moving into renewable energy as climate change, the falling cost of solar and wind power and a shift to electric vehicles raise doubts over long-term demand for oil. Eni last month committed $50 million (35.24 million pounds) to one of several projects aiming to produce energy by fusing atoms at temperatures as hot as the sun, a process seen by doubters as still closer to science fiction than commercial reality.
LONDON/BASRA, Iraq (Reuters) - Talks between Exxon Mobil (XOM.N) and Iraq on a multi-billion-dollar infrastructure contract have reached an impasse, Iraqi officials and two industry sources said, in a potential setback to the oil major's ambitions to expand in the country. More than two years of negotiations on awarding the U.S. firm a project to build a water treatment facility and related pipelines needed to boost Iraq's oil production capacity have hit difficulties because the two sides differ on contract terms and costs, the officials and sources told Reuters. Losing the contract could deal a blow to Exxon's broader Iraqi plans, as it would be handed rights to develop at least two southern oilfields - Nahr Bin Umar and Artawi - as part of the deal.

The long-delayed Browse gas project off Western Australia has gained key support, with partners in the North West Shelf liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant aiming to agree on a tariff by end-June to handle Browse gas, Woodside Petroleum's chief executive said on Wednesday. Browse is seen as a key source of growth for Woodside but has been stuck on the drawing board for years as plans for onshore and floating LNG development estimated at $30 billion to $45 billion were scrapped. The plan now is to develop the giant gas field to feed the North West Shelf plant, Australia's biggest LNG plant, when its current gas source runs dry in the 2020s.

China's shale gas production will likely reach 17 billion cubic metres (bcm) in 2020, nearly double the 2017 level, as local oil companies make big progress with drilling technology and cost cutting, consultancy Wood Mackenzie said in a note on Tuesday. Nearly 700 new wells will come onstream between 2018 and 2020 at three key projects - Sinopec's Fuling, and PetroChina's Changning-Weiyuan and Zhaotong - all located in the country's southwest, and at a total cost of $5.5 billion, Woodmac estimated. Woodmac has separately forecast China's LNG imports will increase by a quarter to nearly 49 million tonnes this year, from record highs in 2017.

UK shares eased on Monday morning, with two corporate events taking centre stage: CEO Martin Sorrell's exit from advertising company WPP and U.S. hedge fund Elliott Management raising its stake in hotel and coffee-shop operator Whitbread.

BP (BP.L) said on Monday it will keep carbon emissions flat over the decade to 2025 even as its oil and gas ouput is set to grow, responding to rising investor pressure to help tackle climate change. The London-based company said it plans to reduce emissions of CO2 gases by 3.5 million tonnes by 2025 through higher production of gas, the least polluting fossil fuel, reducing leakage of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and limiting flaring of excess gas. BP also plans to invest up to $500 million per year on renewable energies such as solar, wind and power storage.

Brazilian state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA said on Thursday it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with BP Plc "to complement and reaffirm" a letter of intent the companies signed in October regarding a strategic alliance in Brazil.
