The delivery of Shell’s strategic objectives depends on its capability to build large and complex projects reliably and safely, on time and on budget. The Projects & Technology (P&T) organisation has that capability. It executes projects and provides a range of technical services in both Upstream and Downstream. It also drives the research and innovation to create the technology that will be needed in the future. Furthermore, it provides functional leadership in contracting and procurement as well as in safety. In total, more than 8,000 people work in P&T, of whom roughly 600 have PhDs.
