Projects & technology overview

The realisation of our business strategy depends on a few winning capabilities. They include:

  • designing, engineering and constructing oil and gas projects — including drilling of wells — so that they return the most value per dollar invested;
  • developing nascent technologies into value-generating propositions through internal and external programmes; and
  • troubleshooting existing facilities where performance falls below expectations.

P&T marshals these capabilities for Shell. In addition, P&T provides the functional leadership for our global contracting and procurement programme and for our global safety commitment, helping ensure that our facilities remain competitive and do not harm people or the environment.
