Report summary

Since buying BG, Shell has shifted tack in LNG. The combined company will soon become the largest LNG seller in the world and has unrivalled flexibility and diversity in supply and markets. But with the LNG market depressed and the company in the middle of a growth story, which will see its LNG contract portfolio grow by nine times between 2010 and 2020, Shell has started to apply the brakes and reign in plans for further investment.
