Shell is currently trying to shift 16 assets, according to the oil major’s head of upstream Andy Brown.
The earmarked assets are worth more than $500million each and are part of the operator’s three-year strategy to offload $30billion worth of assets.
“There are 16 assets currently in the market that are above $500 million in value,” Brown told the Oil and Money conference in London.
His comments are some of the first specifics the oil major has offered on its sell-off.
The strategy was developed in the wake of its $54billion mega-merger with BG in a bid to lighten its debt load.
Shell’s North Sea assets have since taken centre stage amid speculation.
Siccar Point made its North Sea debut earlier this year, after snapping up a 8.9% stake in the Greater Mariner Area.
Shell posted its weakest quarterly earnings in more than a decade in July.
Earlier this year, it agreed to sell is Brutus operation in the Gulf of Mexico for $425million to EnVen Energy.
