We are helping to meet growing global energy demand and limit CO2 emissions by producing more, cleaner-burning natural gas. Natural gas powers, heats and cools industries, homes and businesses; it fuels trucks and ships as an alternative to diesel and heavy fuel oil; and it goes into many everyday essentials.

What is natural gas? Where does it come from? And what role does it play in everyday life? Get the facts here.
We cool natural gas to make a liquid, shrinking its volume 600 times for easy shipping to distant markets.
The Shell LNG Outlook assesses the global market for liquified natural gas. It highlights key trends from 2019 and looks ahead to possible future supply and demand. Download it here.
Liquefied natural gas can be a cost-competitive and cleaner fuel for heavy-duty road transport, shipping and industrial users.
FLNG technology can tap into gas resources from underwater gas fields previously too challenging to reach.
Methane is a potent greenhouse gas. When it is released into the atmosphere it has a much higher global warming impact than CO2. Natural gas consists mainly of methane.
We are safely tapping into huge resources of natural gas, known as tight and shale gas, held deep inside rock.
This publication explains the critical role natural gas will play in the energy transition - in electricity generation, industry, the built environment and transport.
The global energy system is changing. A planet destined for more people and rising living standards will need more energy. But the world must also find ways to reduce carbon emissions and tackle climate change. Shell’s New Energies business focuses on new fuels and power.
