Shell aims to maintain methane emissions intensity below 0.2 percent by 2025, it said in a statement, joining British rival BP, which last year set a similar goal.
Methane is released into the atmosphere mostly through leaks in gas infrastructure such as pumps and pipelines.
The Anglo-Dutch company set out last year an ambitious plan to halve its carbon emissions by 2050.
