Falling oil prices are forcing Royal Dutch Shell to cut back investment by some $15bn over the next three years.

The announcement came as Shell announced an increase in profits for the last three months of 2014, which rose to $4.2bn compared with $2.2bn in the same period a year earlier.

Full year earnings also rose to $19bn in 2014, up from $16.7bn in the previous year.

The company has sold off some $15bn in assets over the last year.

Shell chief executive Ben van Beurden said: “We are taking a prudent approach here and we must be careful not to over-react to the recent fall in oil prices.

“Shell is taking structured decisions to balance growth and returns.”
