Third quarter 2011 results and interim dividend announcement

At 07.00 BST (08.00 CEST and 02.00 EDT) on Thursday 27 October, 2011 Royal Dutch Shell plc released its third quarter results and third quarter interim dividend announcement for 2011.

Royal Dutch Shell Chief Executive Officer Peter Voser commented:

"We continue to make good progress with our strategy; improving our competitive performance, delivering a new wave of production growth, and maturing the next generation of growth options for shareholders.

Our profits pay for Shell's substantial investments in new energy projects, to ensure low-cost, reliable energy supplies for our customers and to create value for our shareholders. Our third quarter results were higher than year-ago levels, driven by higher oil prices and Shell's performance.

In Upstream, our oil and gas production excluding divestments grew by 2% from year-ago levels, driven by the continued ramp-up of our growth projects, mainly in Qatar and Canada..."
