Qatar investor visit

November 2009: Qatar set to be a new heartland for Shell

Simon Henry (Chief Financial Officer), Malcolm Brinded (Executive Director Upstream International), Matthias Bichsel (Director Projects & Technology), Andy Brown (Executive Vice President Shell Qatar) and Mark Gainsborough (Executive Vice President Downstream Strategy) gave presentations during the Qatar investor visit on 23 November 2009.

Royal Dutch Shell plc (Shell) reconfirmed good progress of the Pearl GTL and the Qatargas 4 projects for a group of its shareholders and investment analysts.

HE Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attiyah, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Energy and Industry said: “Shell has only been back in Qatar a few years and over that time through the realization of Pearl GTL and Qatargas 4 projects they have established a significant position in Qatar’s energy sector. We appreciate our partnership with Shell and we believe this relationship will be a source of long term prosperity and growth.”

Shell Chief Executive Officer Peter Voser commented: “I am very pleased with the progress that we are making with Pearl GTL and Qatargas 4. We have enjoyed tremendous support from our partner Qatar Petroleum and we are pleased to play our part to establish Qatar as the number one LNG and GTL producer in the world. On today’s basis these two projects alone would represent over 10% of our world-wide production. Qatar underpins Shell’s growth plans to 2012 and will be a heartland for decades to come.”
