Shell is the oil & gas company best positioned to take advantage of future integrated oil & gas developments in the industry, according to GlobalData analysts.

The Netherlands-based firm comes top of the list in a ranking of overall leadership in the themes that matter most among integrated oil & gas companies.

These themes, which can be defined as any issues that keep CEOs awake at night, describe technological, macroeconomic and industry-specific challenges that companies are currently facing, as well as the opportunities they create. GlobalData’s Thematic Research ecosystem identifies and tracks these challenges, and how they create the long-term winners and losers of the mining industry.

Shell scored highly in several themes, particularly when it comes to LNG, Integrated Refineries, Artificial Intelligence, Industrial Internet, Hydrogen and Electric Vehicles, where it received top marks of five out of five.

Shell received scores of four for Shale, Emerging Economies and Renewable Energy; and three for COVID-19 performances.

These scores represent GlobalData analysts’ assessments of the competitiveness of each company regarding a particular theme. They are then weighted based on their importance and used to create the final industry ranking.
