WALL STREET JOURNAL: Exporting the U.S. shale energy revolution overseas is giving the U.S. a significant competitive advantage.

The result is that significant overseas shale energy production could be a decade away, the Wall Street Journal reports...Three major ad firms, WPP (WPPGY), Publicis Groupe (PUBGY) and Interpublic Group (IPG), are revising down their projections for 2013 global ad spending growth, citing economic troubles in Europe and lackluster conditions in the U.S., among other factors, the Wall Street Journal reports...REUTERS: Wall Street banks, including Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS), are looking to help offshore clients sidestep new U.S. rules designed to safeguard the world's $640T over-the-counter derivatives market, taking advantage of an exemption that risks undermining U.S. regulators' efforts, Reuters reports...The U.K.’s Public Accounts Committee called on the government to crack down on multinational companies that make substantial sales in Britain but pay little tax there, Reuters reports...BLOOMBERG: China may maintain its annual economic growth target at 7.5% next year in a sign the new leadership headed by Xi Jinping won’t tolerate a bigger slowdown from the lowest goal since 2004, Bloomberg reports...Hedge funds increased bullish bets on commodities by the most since August as evidence that China is accelerating outweighed concern that U.S. lawmakers have yet to resolve an impasse over automatic spending cuts and tax rises, Bloomberg reports.

06:06 EDTBPBP sees $1B in group-wide restructuring charges over coming year
"Although the current environment is challenging, BP is well-positioned to respond and manage our Upstream business for the long term,” said Upstream CEO Lamar McKay. “We expect to see growth from our conventional and deepwater assets and an increasing contribution from gas. And we also have a quality pipeline of opportunities that we believe are capable of extending underlying growth well beyond 2020. Our focus throughout will remain firmly on safe operations, execution efficiency and greater plant reliability.” BP also said that, as part of its wider ongoing Group-wide programme to simplify across its Upstream and Downstream activities and corporate functions, it expects to incur non-operating restructuring charges of circa $1B in total over the next five quarters, including the current quarter. Details of these charges and further guidance on the program are expected to be given with each quarter’s results. Across the Group, BP has said it will be looking to pare or re-phase capital expenditure without compromising safety or future growth. In October, BP told investors this could result in reductions of $1B-$2B in capital expenditure across the Group in 2015 against guidance of $24B-$26B laid out in March. This will be reviewed further as part of the 2015 plan, recognising the current outlook for oil prices. Between now and 2020, the Upstream team’s focus will be on delivery, through safe and reliable operations, strong execution in the existing base business, and the start-up of a suite of new projects which are expected to be capable of adding over 900,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day of net incremental production to BP’s portfolio by 2020. BP will also be progressing opportunities expected to continue to drive underlying growth into the next decade as it builds out its well-established conventional and deepwater oil positions and a distinctive and material portfolio of gas options.
