Cash engines

Cash engines are strategic themes that are expected to provide strong and resilient returns and free cash flow, funding shareholder returns and strengthening the balance sheet. Shell continues to invest in selective growth opportunities for cash engines. In May 2017, Shell completed the sale of the majority of its interests in oil sands in Canada. As a result, Oil Sands Mining no longer features as a strategic theme.
