Last year was not a good one for global oil and gas giants. Royal Dutch Shell reported a year-on-year decline of 10% in liquids production and an 8% decline in gas production (link). There are many reasons why these oil and gas giants are now shrinking. One of the main reasons being that they have many old depleted and declining fields in their portfolio, while there are also fewer and fewer opportunities to tap new fields. Shell abandoned its attempts to produce oil out of kerogen in the Powder River Basin. It also abandoned Arctic exploration in Alaska. It announced a massive $2 billion loss on its Eagle Ford operations as part of its recent divestment program.
