Shell to reduce refinery portfolio by more than half

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) plans to reduce its refining and chemicals portfolio by more than half, it said in July 2020 without giving a precise timeframe.

The move is part of the Anglo-Dutch company’s plan to shrink its oil and gas business and expand its renewables and power division to reduce greenhouse gas emissions sharply by 2050.

Here is a list of its refineries at the end of 2019.
