Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies. Our operations are divided into four businesses: Upstream, Integrated Gas and New Energies, Downstream, and Projects & Technology. In Integrated Gas and New Energies, we focus on liquefying natural gas and converting gas to liquids so that it can be safely stored and shipped to markets around the world. In Downstream, we focus on turning crude oil into a range of refined products, which are moved and marketed around the world for domestic, industrial and transport use. Our Projects & Technology business is responsible for delivering new development projects and the research and development that leads to innovative and low-cost investments for the future.
