To meet growing long-term energy demand, Shell is producing more natural gas and accessing energy resources in increasingly challenging environments. The amount of liquefied natural gas we supply rose again in 2011. Innovative technologies are helping us explore for and produce oil and gas from deeper waters than ever before. We are also developing resources in locations with extreme conditions, such as subarctic regions.
As energy demand rises in the coming decades, the International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that supplies of natural gas – along with renewables such as wind and solar – will see the biggest growth.
The US Geological Survey estimates the global Arctic holds as much as 30% of the world’s undiscovered natural gas and about 13% of its yet-to-find oil.
In delivering new resources to help meet rising energy demand, we are operating in ever more challenging environments – such as deeper waters offshore.
