According to Dutch broadcaster NOS, the Dutch government will grant Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and its group about $2.4 billion in subsidies for a climate change project. In January, Shell, Exxon (XOM), Air Liquide, and Air Products sought the government's support for their project to reduce the Netherlands’ carbon footprint. The project encompasses capturing and storing carbon dioxide from industrial operations in the Rotterdam port area instead of letting it go into the atmosphere. The government has granted their request. The government money will compensate these companies for the extra costs they incur in the carbon capture project. Factories around the Rotterdam port pay to be allowed to release carbon dioxide from their operations. Shell and its group will capture the greenhouse gases and then store them in an empty gas field in the North Sea. Since the cost of storing the gas may rise faster than the fees the factories currently pay for the emissions, the government subsidy will make up the difference. The captured carbon will be transported through the infrastructure provided by the Port of Rotterdam, to be stored in offshore empty gas fields. The project is expected to begin operations in 2024 and will aim to capture and store 2.5 megatons of carbon gas every year. The project will contribute to the Netherlands' commitment to curb climate change. According to a Reuters report, by 2030, the country aims to have cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 55% from the 1990 level. (See Royal Dutch Shell stock analysis on TipRanks) This clears the most important hurdle for the project, which is set to become operational in 2024. It is expected to reduce emissions in the industrial cluster surrounding Europe’s largest seaport by around 10%. Evercore ISI analyst Stephen Richardson reiterated a Hold rating on Shell stock. The analyst did not assign it a price target. Consensus among analysts on Wall Street is a Moderate Buy based on 4 Buy and 2 Hold ratings. The average analyst price target of $48.38 implies 18.32% upside potential to current price levels. RDS.A scores a 7 out of 10 on TipRanks’ Smart Score rating system, indicating that it is likely to align with market performance.

(Bloomberg) -- Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s head expects clean energy to make up half of the company’s energy mix “somewhere in the next decade.”“If we do not make that type of process by the middle of next decade, we have a problem not just as a company but as a society,” Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden said in an interview with AXIOS on HBO.Like its European peers, the Anglo-Dutch major has set itself an “ambition” to become a net-zero emissions energy company by the middle of this century. The feat involves producing less oil, more gas and renewables, as well as using technologies still in their infancy like hydrogen and carbon sequestration. Not everyone is convinced, with the energy giant set to clash with some shareholders on the matter at its annual general meeting later this month.“If you want to get rid of hydrocarbons in the mix, you have to do something about the use of it, not the production of it,” van Beurden said. Speaking on the challenges of the transition, the 63-year-old Dutchman also said that people want to see results straightaway, but “don’t expect that tomorrow we will stop selling diesel to trucks.”While Van Beurden welcomed the U.S. rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, which seeks to limit global warming temperature increases to less than 2 degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels, he questioned other policies. “What I also see is that the government is flirting with popular ideas that are clear, simple, and wrong, which is, ‘Let’s ban the production of oil and gas in our country.’”Van Beurden has previously criticized U.S. President Joe Biden’s policy to ban drilling on federal land, saying such restrictions will simply result in boosting oil imports. “Popular demand may well push you in the direction, but it is not smart policy.”“We will focus on the demand side, and then the supply side is a resultant of that,” he said.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
The Dutch government has granted a consortium that includes oil majors Royal Dutch Shell and ExxonMobil around 2 billion euros ($2.4 billion) in subsidies for what is set to become one of the largest carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects in the world, the Port of Rotterdam said on Sunday. Shell and Exxon requested the subsidies in January together with industrial gas suppliers Air Liquide and Air Products for a project which aims to capture CO2 emitted by factories and refineries in the Rotterdam port area and store it in empty Dutch gas fields in the North Sea.
