Notes

Deferred Bonus Plan ("DBP")

The DBP requires that Executive Directors and Persons Discharging Managerial
Responsibility invest no less than 25% of their annual bonus in deferred bonus
shares. They may choose to invest up to 50% in such shares and the Plan provides
for dividends in the form of shares ("dividend shares") to be accrued on the
deferred bonus shares. For the purposes of disclosure and maintenance of certain
statutory records, the number of shares does not include any performance-related
matching shares that may be earned in accordance with the plan rules applicable
to each award, the number of such performance related matching shares being
unknown until the performance criteria are assessed at the end of the
performance period. Further details of the DBP can be found in the Royal Dutch
Shell Annual Report and Form 20-F for the year ended  December 31, 2011.

Long Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP")

The LTIP is a performance based share plan under which Directors receive a
conditional award of shares ("performance shares"). The actual number of
performance shares which Directors could finally receive under the plan ranges
from nil to two times the conditional award, subject to the performance of the
Company over a period of at least three years. For the purposes of disclosure
and maintenance of certain statutory records, the number of performance shares
is taken to be one times the number of performance shares conditionally awarded.
Performance shares attract dividends in the form of shares ("dividend shares")
and, whilst Directors could finally receive dividend shares based on two times
the conditional award, such dividend shares are disclosed and recorded on the
basis of the number of shares conditionally awarded. Further details of the LTIP
can be found in the Royal Dutch Shell Annual Report and Form 20-F for the year
ended  December 31, 2011.
