Shell has reorganised its unconventional unit to maximise growth opportunities supporting the trend of oil majors increasing the role of smaller, more flexible projects in their global portfolios.


Industry Trend Analysis - LPG Trade Liberalisation Upside To Imports - SEPT 2016

Asia July 2016 / Thailand / Industry

A planned liberalisation of the LPG imports segment in Thailand will allow private players to import LPG directly from international sellers for the first time.

Industry Risk/Reward Index - CEE: Global Risk/Reward Underperformer - SEPT 2016

Emerging Europe July 2016 / Europe / Industry

The CEE region ranks bottom in our overall Oil & Gas Risk/Reward Index in a regional comparison, limited by heavy state influence, poor infrastructure and a weak demand outlook. East of Caspian countries with high resource and production volumes dominate the upstream index, while fuels demand profiles in Turkey and Poland support high downstream scores.
