How does oil and gas flow kilometres upwards under immense ocean pressure? Can a giant gas-to-liquids plant that needs water run in the desert? What will it take to turn natural gas to liquid at sea? Take a glimpse inside some of our major projects to see how human ingenuity pushes technical boundaries to safely deliver energy and help meet rising global energy demand.

The major projects featured in this section are Shell-operated and represent a significant investment by Shell. Discover examples of projects that have already been brought on stream and explore others that are under construction.
