Shell’s exposure to Russia is a meaningful risk

BP, Exxon, and Shell all have significant exposure to Russia. If the U.S. and its allies were to impose a ban on the export of Western oil and gas technology to new projects being undertaken by Kremlin-controlled companies, it would probably dash Exxon and Shell’s ambitions to explore areas like western Siberia and the Arctic seas. All told, BP, Exxon, and Shell’s exposure to Russia is a meaningful risk — albeit one that may already be priced in — and one that investors should carefully consider before investing in these companies.
