The FT’s Anjli Raval says Shell is trying to streamline its business after the shock of Covid-19, writing:

Shell has in recent months reviewed its operations as it seeks not only to become more financially resilient, but better set up for a shift towards lower-carbon energy businesses.

Job reductions of between 7,000 and 9,000 are expected by the end of 2022, including 1,500 people that have chosen to take voluntary redundancy.

Shell’s job cuts mean that tens of thousands of positions are being lost across the energy industry – due to Covid-19 and the push towards less polluting sources of power.

Bloomberg has the details:

Royal Dutch Shell Plc will cut as many as 9,000 jobs as Covid-19 precipitates a companywide restructuring into low-carbon energy.

Job reductions of 7,000 to 9,000 are expected by the end of 2022, including around 1,500 people taking voluntary redundancy this year, Shell said Wednesday in a statement. The company sees sustainable annual cost savings of $2 billion to $2.5 billion by that time.
