Report: Shell set to drill for new fossil fuels for decades to come

Shell is planning to extract oil and gas for decades to come. A decision that spells disaster for the climate. A new study by Milieudefensie (Friends of the Earth Netherlands) and Oil Change International highlights the continuing importance of climate litigation against big polluters such as Shell.

This is our second study of Shell’s plans carried out in collaboration with Oil Change International, using data from Rystad.

These are our main findings

  1. Shell has plans to develop over 800 new oil and gas projects in the coming years.
  2. The emissions stemming from these projects would equate to 38 times the emissions of the Netherlands in 2021.
  3. Since the court’s verdict in 2021, Shell has approved 20 new fossil fuel projects and given the green light to initiate drilling.
