A Pestle and Swot Analysis of Shell Nigeria, 2023

Latest posts by Mariam Peyton (see all)

    A SWOT and PESTLE analysis of Shell Nigeria and its business environment reveals several challenging trends and issues that the company needs to address to become a leaner and more efficient organization that can compete against rivals. The report revealed several challenges among which include; fluctuations in the prices of crude oil, chemicals, and natural gas, and rising concerns about climate change. The rising concerns about climate change and its effects have greatly led to a fall in the demand for its products and services thus offering potentially lower prices for fossil fuels. Climate change has also impacted the physical impact of the company’s assets and supply chains which has led to regulatory measures, resulting in delays of projects or even resulting in them being canceled, possible litigation, and restrictions on the operations among so many others.
    Several of the challenges, which are revealed by extensive SWOT and PESTLE Analysis of Shell Nigeria, show the company’s key threats, and risk challenges including major political, economic, social, technological factors, and regulatory trends impacting the company. Furthermore, the report analyzed the opportunities that are on the horizon for Shell Nigeria. 
    A Shell Nigeria SWOT and VRIO analysis answers key questions such as; What are the threats to Shell Oil Company? what are the strengths and weaknesses of Shell Nigeria?
    In conclusion, the report offers recommendations to help Shell Nigeria turn around its sales whilst sustaining growth and expansion in growth markets despite rising constraints and challenges.
