Projects & Technology overview

Achieving Shell’s strategic ambitions — to provide a world-class investment case, thrive in the energy transition and sustain a strong licence to operate — relies on our ability to:

  • plan, design, engineer, source and construct oil and gas facilities, including the drilling of wells, so that we deploy our capital efficiently and our projects return the most value per dollar invested;
  • enhance the operational performance of assets through digital technologies and competitive supply chains; and
  • develop technologies into value-generating commercial propositions through internal and external research and development (R&D) programmes.

integrates these capabilities to help achieve the capital efficiency and operational excellence that distinguish Shell from its competitors. That is why it brings together under one roof all the elements needed for the safe and expeditious delivery of projects (including wells), the optimal management of assets (including digitalisation), the profitable commercialisation of technology (including catalysts) and the procurement of goods and services at competitive prices. It is also why P&T takes its lead directly from Shell’s Integrated Gas, Upstream and Downstream businesses.

Shell aims for no harm to people and no harm to the environment. To this end, P&T houses the functional leadership for Shell’s global safety commitment and Net Carbon Footprint ambition, helping to ensure that Shell’s operations are run safely and sustainably.
