    BP sees self-driving electric vehicles crimping oil demand by 2040

    The emergence of self-driving electric cars and travel sharing are set to dent oil consumption by 2040, oil and gas giant BP (BP.L) said, forecasting a peak in demand for the first time. In its benchmark annual Energy Outlook, BP forecast a 100-fold growth in electric vehicles by 2040, with its chief economist Spencer Dale painting a world in which we travel much more but instead of using private cars, we increasingly share trips in autonomous vehicles. While travel demand more than doubles over the period as economies in countries such as China and India grow, higher oil demand will be more than offset by increased engine efficiency standards as well as the larger number of EVs and shared traveling.

    BP CEO says to invest $1 billion in Egypt this year, not owed money

    BP (BP.L) is looking to invest over $1 billion (721.66 million pounds) in Egypt this year, making the country once again a top destination for investment, its CEO said on Monday. Speaking at an industry event in Egypt, Bob Dudley said the company was no longer owed any money by the Egyptian government. Cairo has pledged to eliminate arrears owed to foreign oil companies by the end of June 2019 and not to accumulate more, part of its drive to draw new foreign investment to an energy sector that is attracting interest following several major gas discoveries.

    Big Oil takes stage for post-austerity beauty contest

    With years of austerity in their rear-view mirrors, the world's biggest oil companies are locked in a beauty contest to lure investors with promises of growth and greater rewards. Royal Dutch Shell and Total are emerging as frontrunners after a three-year slump thanks to strong growth projections but Exxon Mobil, the biggest publicly traded oil company, has largely disappointed with a weaker outlook. Major oil companies slashed spending and cut costs after oil prices collapsed in 2014 and can now generate as much cash with crude at $50-$55 a barrel as they did when the price was around $100 earlier in the decade.

    European shares end tumultuous week at six-month low

    European shares fell to their lowest level in almost six months on Friday after a roller coaster week marred by a historic spike in volatility on worries a comeback of inflation would speed a shift to tighter monetary policies. Redemptions from European Equity funds reached 80-week highs, data from EPFR showed, while the pan-regional STOXX 600 (.STOXX) index ended at 368.61 points, down 1.5 percent on the day and 5 percent on the week, its worst week in 2 years. "It has certainly been a chaotic trading week for the global equity markets, amid fears of mounting inflationary pressures and higher interest rates," FXTM analyst Lukman Otunuga said.

    Higher production, oil prices and cost savings drove a 28 percent rise in net profit at Total (TOTF.PA) last year, allowing the French oil and gas group to hike dividends and announce plans to buy back shares. Adjusted net profit came in at $10.6 billion (7.65 billion pounds), helped by a 5 percent rise in production. "The group demonstrated its ability to capture the benefit of higher prices," Chief Executive Patrick Pouyanne said, adding that the company's return on equity was more than 10 percent, the highest among oil majors.

    Statoil raises dividend and capex as oil sector picks up

    LONDON/OSLO (Reuters) - Norway's Statoil (STL.OL) will raise its dividend, investments and exploration spending in 2018, it said on Wednesday, after higher oil prices helped it beat fourth-quarter earnings forecasts. Like other oil companies, Statoil is also benefiting from efficiencies it pushed through during the sector's downturn, when firms were forced to slash jobs, projects and investment. Its flagship project, the development of the Johan Sverdrup oilfield in the North Sea, now has a break-even price so low it challenges the efficiency of OPEC countries, said one analyst.

    PRESS DIGEST- Financial Times - Feb 7

    BP Plc's fourth-quarter earnings more than quadrupled from the year before as the UK oil and gas group benefited from higher crude prices and a surge in production from new projects. A multimillion pound criminal trial of three former Tesco Plc executives accused of fraud and false accounting in a 250 million pound ($349.05 million) scandal at the retailer has been abandoned after one of the defendants had a heart attack. Tronc Inc is expected to sell the Los Angeles Times to Patrick Soon-Shiong, the pharmaceuticals billionaire who invested in the U.S. publisher in 2016, capping a tumultuous period for its flagship newspaper.
