Processing oil and gas

Shell plays a vital role in powering the UK and keeping people and business moving. Across all of our business activities, we focus on being a safe and sustainable business. Our people often work in demanding roles and extreme conditions so ensuring they go home safely every day is our number one priority. One of the most demanding environments is the North Sea where we have been exploring for and producing oil and gas for more than 50 years.

Supporting economic activity

Shell commissioned the University of Strathclyde’s Fraser of Allander Institute and Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce to analyse the contribution our Upstream business makes on supply chains and the wider UK and Scottish economies.
