Only Subscribers can read the full Article

During the short week that followed the Easter holiday, all eyes were on Shell as it sought to overturn the court ruling from 2021, which ordered the major to slash emissions by 45% by 2030, by arguing in The Hague District Court that there is no legal basis for it under Dutch law.

In Italy, gas grid and storage operator Snam exercised its pre-emption right to increase its stake in Adriatic LNG – Italy’s largest regas terminal – from 7.3% to 30%, following a deal signed by Dutch energy storage player VTTI and German asset manager IKAV to acquire a 70% stake in the terminal from ExxonMobil and QatarEnergy.

Elsewhere, with final investment decision (FID) on the Emirates’ new Ruwais LNG facility expected later this year, ADNOC Gas outlined a USD 13 billion investment plan over the next five years, with a focus on expanding LNG production, while Senegal’s new president, Bassirou Diomaye Faye, told the West African nation that exploitation of the country’s oil and gas resources will receive particular attention from his government and announced an audit of the sector.
