Our strategy

Our industry is changing at a pace not seen in decades. Oil, gas and renewables are becoming more abundant and less costly. Our strategy allows us to be competitive in a time when prices, policy, technology and customer preferences are evolving.

Our history

Our story has always been about transitions – from coal to oil, from oil to gas, from onshore to deep water, and now towards a new mix of energy sources and a lower carbon future
