Due to cost reductions and efficiency gains, after Shell defeated ExxonMobil, the larger rival, in two ways in 2017, it is expected that Shell will continue to create strong profits and cash flow this year. Although profits exceeded expectations by an average of $5.3 billion, Shell's share price fell by 2.1% due to lower than expected cash flow. Barclays analysts said in a report that in the past few months, external concerns about large oil companies have been the return of cash flow, especially considering that strong first-quarter profit is usually Seasonal. Barclays analysts have said they expect negative stock reactions.


Die casting is a Aluminium or Zinc metal casting process that is characterized by forcing nolten metal under high pressure into a die mold cavity. The mold cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mould during the process. Most die castings are made from non-ferrous metals, specifically zinc, copper, aluminium, magnesium, lead, pewter, and tin-based alloys. Depending on the type of metal being cast, a hot- or cold-chamber machine is used.

The casting equipment and the metal dies represent large capital costs and this tends to limit the process to high-volume production. Manufacture of parts using die casting is relatively simple, involving only four main steps, which keeps the incremental cost per item low. It is especially suited for a large quantity of small- to medium-sized castings, which is why die casting produces more castings than any other casting process. Die castings are characterized by a very good surface finish (by casting standards) and dimensional consistency.
