How we work
he shipping of oil liquids and natural gases is vital to maintaining energy security,particularly in regions where indigenous resources cannot keep up with demand for powerand mobility. Equally, oil and natural gas exporting countries depend heavily on shipping tohonour their contracts with importers.

Many companies – including Shell – areinvesting to develop alternative andrenewable sources of energy. But oil andgas will remain very important in theenergy mix to 2050 and beyond. Duringthat time, about three million moreconsumers will be added to the world’spopulation. And living standards in fast-growing,highly populous economies suchas China and India are expectedto see dramatic change. The globaleconomy and global energy consumption will undoubtedly continue to fluctuate, but the underlying trend in energy use will stillbe up – and so will demand for shipping.

The Energy Challenge
Meeting the increased demand forenergy presents shipping withquite a challenge. There arechallenges on other fronts as well.
Environmental and regulatory requirementsforshippingarebecomingmoredemanding.For oil and natural gas shipping, these arecompounded by the ongoing shift of operating locations into more extremeclimates (such as ‘big ice’) and the inherent risk that shipping carries compared to most industries. Additional hazards – fromextreme weather events to piracy – giveshipping a unique risk profile.
