Shell in the Arctic
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. Developing the Arctic could be essential to securing energy supplies for the future, but it will mean balancing economic, environmental and social challenges.
Multi-layered well control systems, dedicated response vessels and reinforced platforms are some of the technologies we have developed to help meet the challenges of Arctic conditions.
