PM Edition: Investors allow Callon-Carrizo merger; Shell writes down $2.3B in Q4

Top News

Callon-Carrizo merger overcomes obstacles, meets shareholder approval

Carrizo Oil & Gas Inc. shareholders approved the company's $3.2 billion acquisition by Callon Petroleum Co. The dramatic merger was opposed from the start by some of its investors, including major shareholder Paulson & Co. Inc., which fretted that Callon would not be as valuable if it acquired Carrizo's Eagle Ford assets and was no longer a Permian Basin pure-play producer.

FERC OKs 4 more gas pipe expansions amid ongoing greenhouse gas debate

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission voted 2-1 on Dec. 19 to approve four natural gas pipeline expansions, including the 850-MMcf/d Adelphia Gateway LLC project, which would carry Marcellus Shale gas to the greater Philadelphia industrial region. The action, taken at the agency's monthly open meeting, came as commissioners continued their tug-of-war over the scope of greenhouse gas considerations needed in interstate gas project reviews.

Morgan Stanley: 'Second wave of renewables' to drive 70 GW of coal retirements

Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC forecast that about 70,000 MW to as much as 190,000 MW of coal-fired generation is "economically at risk" from the deployment of a "second wave of renewables" in the U.S. under several more likely scenarios in a recent analysis. The research firm said those projections exclude about 24,000 MW of coal generation already set to shut down.

Shell to write down as much as $2.3B in Q4 due to weak economic forecast

Royal Dutch Shell PLC will write down between $1.7 billion and $2.3 billion in assets during the fourth quarter due to a weak macroeconomic outlook, the Anglo-Dutch oil and gas major cautioned in a Dec. 20 trading update. Shell did not identify the assets to which the posttax impairment charges are tied. The write-down could slow the company's efforts to cut debt and hike returns, analysts said.
