Russell Caplan, Chairman, The Shell Companies in Australia, 16 October 2008

CEO Boardroom

Russell Caplan addressed a boardroom lunch for CEO’s of the Chamber's Sponsor and Gold Club companies in Sydney on “The Role of Emerging Technologies in Meeting the Energy Challenge.” This event was generously partnered by Freehills.

It is not easy being a global energy company these days with the rising cost of oil and the challenges of operating in a carbon constrained economy.
It is no different for Shell. Employing 3,000 people in Australia, Shell finds, develops and sells gas and condensate to domestic and export markets, as well as supplying around a quarter of Australia's petroleum fuel requirements.

So how does Shell future-proof itself as energy demand increases, oil dependency reduces and carbon dioxide emissions become less acceptable and more costly?

Russell Caplan is well-placed to answer these questions. He has spent over 40 years with Shell, across all areas of the business in many countries, culminating with his appointment as Chairman of Shell in Australia in 2006. Russell is also on the Board of Orica Limited, the Australian Institute of Petroleum, the Committee for Melbourne and the Global Foundation and is Chairman of the Melbourne and Olympic Parks Trust.
