Royal Dutch Shell

Shell is an integrated energy
company that aims to meet the world’s growing demand for energy in ways that are economically, environmentally and socially responsible. We are a global group of energy and petrochemical companies.

Our operations are divided into four businesses: Upstream, Integrated Gas and New Energies, Downstream, and Projects & Technology.

In Upstream we focus on exploration for new liquids and natural gas reserves and on developing major new projects where our technology and know-how add value for resource holders.

In Integrated Gas and New Energies, we focus on liquefying natural gas (LNG) and converting gas to liquids (GTL) so that it can be safely stored and shipped to markets around the world. The New Energies business has been established to explore and invest in new low-carbon opportunities.

In Downstream, we focus on turning crude oil into a range of refined products, which are moved and marketed around the world for domestic, industrial and transport use. In addition, we produce and sell petrochemicals for industrial use worldwide. Shell’s oil sands mining activities in North America are also part of the Downstream organization.

Our Projects & Technology business is responsible for delivering new development projects and the research and development that leads to innovative and low-cost investments for the future.

As a global energy company operating in a challenging world,
we set high standards of performance and ethical behaviours. We are judged by how we act and how we live up to our core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people. Our Business Principles are based on these. They promote trust, openness, teamwork and professionalism, as well as pride in what we do and how we conduct business.

We aim to work closely with our customers, our partners and policymakers to advance a more efficient and sustainable use of energy and natural resources.



Our strategy seeks to reinforce
our position as a leader in the oil and gas industry, from which we will generate cash flow to grow our new energy business, while helping to meet global energy demand in a responsible way. We strive to create competitive returns for shareholders.

Safety and environmental and social responsibility are at the heart of our activities.

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.

In April 2015, Shell announced its recommended combination with BG. This combination was completed on February 15, 2016. This combination adds significant scale and profitability to Shell, particularly in LNG world-wide and deep water oil and gas in Brazil. The combination presents an opportunity to accelerate portfolio refocusing in Shell through asset sales (e.g. heavy oil) and reduced spending, resulting in a simpler, more focused company geared to excel in the ongoing energy transition.

Let’s deliver better energy solutions together



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 in hydrocarbon energy and renewable energy.

Energy systems are changing.
This is happening at different rates and with varying complexity around the world. The transition is driven by growing energy demand and an urgent need to curb CO2 emissions.

Shell is working to understand these shifting energy landscapes and to seize the right business opportunities. We are looking to explore – and lay foundations for – a range of new energy models. 

We are playing our part in the transition towards a low-carbon future. We aim to cut the net carbon footprint of our energy products – measured in grams of CO2 per megajoule of energy consumed by Shell AND its customers– by around half by 2050. By 2035 we aim to reduce it by around 20%.
