Jul 27 2017 - Oil

Even in the most aggressive scenario, where policies really work at their best, where technology really makes a lot of strides in the near future, oil isn't going to peak before the late (2020s) or early 2030s and when it does peak it's not going to go out of fashion overnight. Supply will shrink faster than demand can shrink and therefore working on oil and gas projects will remain relevant for many decades to

This announcement is a significant step in re-shaping Shell's portfolio in line with our long-term strategy. We are strengthening Shell's world-class investment case by focusing on free cash flow and higher returns on capital, and prioritising businesses where we have global scale and a competitive advantage such as Integrated Gas and deep water. The proceeds will accelerate free cash flow and reduce gearing and make a meaningful contribution to Shell's $30bn divestment
