Our strategy seeks to reinforce our position as a leader in the oil and gas industry while helping to meet global energy demand in a responsible way. Safety, environmental and social responsibility are at the heart of our activities.
We focus on a series of strategic themes, each requiring distinctive technologies and risk management:
- Downstream engine
- Upstream engine
- Integrated gas
- Deep water
- Resources plays
- Future opportunities
Meeting the growing demand for energy worldwide in ways that minimise environmental and social impact is a major challenge for the global energy industry.
We aim to improve energy efficiency in our own operations: we support customers in managing their energy demands and continue to research and develop technologies that increase efficiency and reduce emissions in the production of liquid products and natural gas.
Our commitment to technology and innovation continues to be at the core of our strategy. As energy projects become more complex and more technically demanding, we believe our engineering expertise will be a deciding factor in the growth of our businesses.
Our key strengths include the development and application of technology, the financial and project-management skills that allow us to deliver large field development projects, and the management of integrated value chains.
We aim to leverage our diverse and global business portfolio and customer-focused businesses built around the strength of the Shell brand.
