Royal Dutch Shell has weathered a 15% drop in profits after a better-than-expected performance in the face of "volatile" energy markets.


Lower oil and gas prices and pressure on margins in chemicals resulted in a fall in profits to 6.13 billion US dollars (£3.8 billion) in the three months to September 30, although this beat the previous quarter.
