Shell struggles in Q3 amid volatility in energy markets

LONDON--Energy giant Royal Dutch Shell reported on Thursday a 2-percent rise in net profit to US$7.139 billion (5.514 billion euros) in the third quarter, saying it had faced “volatile energy markets.”

Shell added in a results statement that adjusted net profit, a key measure stripping out changes in the value of inventories and other non-operating items, fell by 6 percent to US$6.56 billion in the three months to September from the equivalent figure last year.

However, that beat market expectations for profit of US$6.31 billion, according to analysts polled by Dow Jones Newswires.

Group revenues meanwhile declined by 8.4 percent to US$115.43 billion in the reporting period.

“Shell is driving a long-term and consistent strategy, against a backdrop of volatile energy markets,” said Chief Executive Peter Voser in the earnings release.
