Future of Energy
Energy is vital to our daily lives. It helps us produce food, fuel transport and power communication channels across the world. Over the coming decades, more people will gain access to energy and enjoy higher standards of living. But these developments could place greater pressure on our world’s resources, such as energy, fresh water and food. At the same time, climate change remains a serious concern. At Shell, we use human ingenuity, innovation and technology to unlock the energy our customers need to power their lives in the years ahead, while aiming to limit our impact on the environment.
Global energy demand is rising. Everyone will need to play their part in helping meet it in a sustainable way. At Shell we are finding ways to deliver more, cleaner energy and helping find ways to use it more efficiently.

Natural gas offers an affordable and environmentally acceptable option to power people’s lives today. It will also help to meet the world’s rising demand for more, cleaner energy into the future.
It is estimated that the Arctic holds around 30% of the world’s undiscovered natural gas and 13% of its yet-to-find oil. This amounts to around 400 billion barrels of oil equivalent, 10 times the total oil and gas produced to date in the North Sea.
The world will need a mix of energy resources to meet growing global demand. We are using advanced technologies to help unlock new resources of oil and gas responsibly, and to boost production from existing fields.
