“Over the 40 years of Deep Water, we’ve used the bright minds to make the impossible, possible.”
“Shell would buy leases that we did not even have the technology yet to develop.”
“We had to go out and build things that we had never done before.”
“The word which comes to my mind around 40 years of Deep Water is a pioneering spirit.”
“Indeed we were the pioneers in deep water. We have built up a fantastic position here in the Gulf of Mexico, but we have now taken that into a really, truly international position.”
“It’s great to be able to work in my home state and to see a very Malaysian team to really deliver a world class performance.”
“Being part of the deep water business in Brazil means you’re a critical contributor to one of our main lines of businesses within the whole of Shell.
“Pioneering deep water for Nigeria also meant that Shell pioneered deep water in Nigeria.”
“I’ve done projects on five continents, and I’ve enjoyed every day of it.”
“The Shell people just have a sense of camaraderie, of can-do attitude, and a resiliency of spirit.”
“This ability to overcome adversity tightened the connections of people and made them incredibly proud of the achievements that they were able to realize.”
“This is my 30th year, and I still feel like the new guy.”
“We went from 326 feet of water to 4, 5 and 6,000 feet. That’s a lot of growth.”
“At the heart of it all is the 40 years of delivery that our people have shown, time and time again, year after year.
“The deep water is the jewel in the upstream crown. It’s what differentiates us in the marketplace”
