Pandemie verursacht Multi-Milliarden Dollar Verlust für Shell

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2021 - Der Ölriese Shell berichtet einen massiven Rückgang bei dGewinn im ganzen Jahar, die Covid-19 Pandemie fordert ihren Tribut von der Öl- und Gasindustrie.

Royal Dutch Shell has posted a net loss of $21.7bn for 2020, after the coronavirus pandemic caused the demand for oil to slump.

As a result, it says it may need to take measures to cut production – this comes on top of last September’s announcement that 9,000 jobs would go worldwide.

In recent days, oil industry rivals have posted similarly sizeable losses for last year, including BP with an $18.1bn loss and Exxon Mobil down $22.4bn.

If the oil industry is to survive then it will need to consolidate assets and evolve, with early rumours pointing to this beginning with a potential merger between Exxon and Chevron in the United States.
