Our Engineers have played an integral part in two of Shell’s largest ongoing projects – Prelude FLNG - opens on Shell.com and Pearl GTL - opens on Shell.com. Hundreds of engineers have combined their considerable expertise and experience across all number of technical specialities to design and begin construction on both mega projects.

Once complete, Prelude will be the first floating liquefied natural gas facility in the world, and will change the way that natural gas resources are developed. Located in Ras Laffan Industrial City in Qatar, Pearl GTL is the world’s largest plant converting natural gas into kerosene, lubricants and cleaner-burning fuels.

To make each project a practical reality, our highly experienced engineers have had to design and implement new technology in all fields of expertise. That’s why Engineering discipline jobs at Shell are some of the most exciting and cutting-edge in the industry.
