Royal Dutch Shell Earnings Rise 22%

Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A - Get Report) said third-quarter earnings rose 22% to $8.5 billion from $6.9 billion a year earlier on an increase in oil prices and despite a production decline because of hurricanes in the U.S.

A sale of a gas transport business in Germany increased third-quarter earnings by about $1.4 billion, the oil company said in a statement Thursday.

Production fell in the quarter to 2,931 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day from 3,137 thousand boe/d in the same quarter last year.

Cash flow from operating activities, excluding net working capital movements, was $10.4 billion compared with $9.9 billion a year earlier.

"We delivered satisfactory earnings and operating performance in the third quarter of 2008. We are watching the world economic situation closely," said CEO Jeroen van der Veer in a statement.

The company also announced a quarterly dividend increase of 11% to 40 cents a share.
