06:34 EDTRDS.ARoyal Dutch Shell Chairman calls for climate awareness, WSJ says
Royal Dutch Shell Chairman Jorma Ollila believes society must adopt a "middle way" that preserves the environment by transitioning "from one energy system to another" while not threatening economic growth, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing a speech to employees disseminated by the company. The speech added that “Shell has been open and firm in its advocacy of cleaner-burning natural gas, carbon capture and storage, and carbon pricing. And we’re hopeful that policy makers will recognize the value of all three at the [international climate] gathering in Paris later this year.” The speech follows similar remarks by CEO Ben van Beurden at an industry conference last month.

05:28 EDTRDS.ARoyal Dutch Shell updates on planned maintenance at Pearl GTL, Qatar
Royal Dutch Shell updated that the Pearl gas-to-liquids, or GTL, plant, in Qatar has entered planned maintenance in February 2015. Pearl GTL comprises two identical GTL 'trains', with a total capacity of 140,000 barrels per day of GTL products plus 120,000 barrels per day of natural gas liquids and ethane. One train, representing half the facility, has recently begun a planned 'turnaround' maintenance programme, which will continue for a period of some 2 months. The Pearl GTL project was developed in two phases. The first phase started up in early 2011 and exported the first commercial shipment of gasoil in June 2011. The whole plant ramped up to full production at the end of 2012. The plant produces cleaner-burning diesel and aviation fuel, oils for advanced lubricants, naphtha used to make plastics and paraffin for detergents. It makes enough diesel to fill over 160,000 cars a day and enough synthetic oil each year to make lubricants for more than 225M cars. The products reach customers in every major energy market through Shell's global retail network.
