Perdido platform in the Gulf of Mexico

Royal Dutch Shell plc reconfirmed strong momentum in its businesses in the Americas for a group of shareholders and analysts today, visiting Upstream assets in Canada. Shell’s oil & gas production in the region could reach 1 million barrels of oil equivalent per day in 2014, an increase of some 40% on current levels, subject to the pace of investment, which could be some $40 billion for the 2011-14 period.

Marvin Odum, Shell’s Director of Upstream Americas commented “Our portfolio development over recent years has built a strong platform for the future, and Upstream Americas is entering a phase of strong and profitable growth. We expect to invest around $10 billion per year in this region to 2014, when oil & gas production could reach 1 million boe/d. This growth potential underpins Shell’s 2014 world-wide aspiration for 3.7 million boe/d of production.”

Shell’s CEO Peter Voser commented “We are delivering on Shell’s three key strategic themes in Upstream Americas and world-wide: performance focus, production growth and maturing new project options. Shell’s oil & gas will be an important part of the energy mix in this region, and Upstream Americas will be a key growth engine for Shell in the years to come.”
