Projects & Technology

Shell’s Projects & Technology (P&T) organisation is responsible for the design and delivery of Shell’s major projects and the development and deployment of technology that enhances the value of its assets and products. Additionally, P&T validates the systems, processes and skills that Shell relies on to provide assurances about its safety and environmental performance. P&T therefore helps to ensure that neither people nor nature are harmed during the construction and operation of Shell’s facilities, and it supports Shell’s carbon-management activities.
