Report summary

The acquisition of BG will be a springboard for Shell to reshape its portfolio, kick-starting a US$30 billion disposal programme in an ambitious phase of portfolio restructuring. We believe that a more focused company will emerge, with a greater geographical concentration, a sharpened set of long-term resource opportunities and a streamlined downstream portfolio.
