Project Engineers at Shell work on some of the energy industry’s most pioneering projects.

Shell’s Project Engineers collaborate to help shape the future of the energy industry , which is why we are proud to retain the highest level of talent. The scale and ambition of Shell’s global engineering projects – from gas-to-liquid plants and floating liquefied natural gas projects, to offshore oil drilling and production platforms – simply do not exist anywhere else in the industry.

Global expertise

Shell’s Project Engineers innovate at every phase of their careers, across countries, with colleagues from many cultures and on pioneering, multi-billion-dollar projects.

From day one, your skills will form an important part of our continued success. We recruit the very best which is why you will have early accountability and responsibility for your projects. Meanwhile you’ll have access to the tools and processes for safe and consistent delivery of top quartile projects, from the Assess to the Operate phase, working with our Integrated Project Management System (iPMS).

Who are we looking for?

We seek ambitious and confident Project Engineers and Project Managers who want to learn from, and work alongside, leading industry professionals. We want to hear from highly technical candidates with remarkable professional experience who value safety above all else, have an international mind-set, and wish to connect and build relationships with different cultures.

We develop and train Project Engineers and Project Managers of all levels to reach their full potential at the externally certified Shell Project Academy, in line with our world-renowned competency programme.

Forefront of innovation

Our Project Engineers are at the cutting edge of the industry. Take three of our largest projects, Pearl GTL, Prelude FLNG and Perdido, all of which truly break new ground. Pearl GTL in Qatar, for example, is the world’s largest plant converting natural gas into kerosene, lubricants and cleaner-burning fuels.

Perdido is the deepest offshore oil drilling and production platform in the world, moored in 2,450 metres of water in the Gulf of Mexico. 

Prelude, meanwhile, will be the world’s first floating liquid natural gas project. 

Each is at the forefront of their respective technologies and require innovations beyond anything ever seen before in the industry. Our Project Engineers and Project Managers lead these developments and the thousands of skilled engineers who staff them to ensure they are run safely and efficiently. 

Each project carves a path for our future. A Project Engineering career at Shell is exciting, innovative, rewarding, and will give you the chance to make an impact on the energy industry.
