Shell gets $1 bln refining boost, upgrades oil and gas assets

Shell said on Thursday surging demand for oil products that had almost tripled refining profits in the second quarter would boost earnings by up to $1.2 billion. In an update before second quarter results on July 28, Shell also said it would reverse up to $4.5 billion in write downs on oil and gas assets after it raised its energy prices outlook following Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Earnings from oil and refined products trading were expected to be strong in the quarter but lower than the first quarter of 2022, Shell said.
