Shell's oil + gas reserves not as big as was thought
Oil company Shell has announced that it is cutting the size of its proven oil + gas reserves by 20%.

This reassessment has lead to a 7% drop in the company's share price and highlighted the fact that only 70 to 90% of extracted oil and gas reserves are being replaced by new discoveries.
