Royal Dutch Shell was formed in 1907, although our history dates back to the early 19th century. Our headquarters are in The Hague, the Netherlands, and our Chief Executive Officer is Wael Sawan. The parent company of the Shell group is Shell plc, which is incorporated in England and Wales.
Our strategy is to strengthen our position as a leader in the oil and gas industry while helping to meet global energy demand in a responsible way. Safety and environmental and social responsibility are at the heart of our activities.
- +70 countries where we operate
- 94,000 average number of employees
- 24 million tonnes of equity LNG sold during the year
- 24 refineries we have interests in
- 3.1 million barrels of oil equivalent we produce every day
Shell is an integrated energy company that aims to meet the world’s growing demand for energy in ways that are economically, environmentally and socially responsible. Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemical companies. Our operations are divided into five businesses: Upstream, Integrated Gas, Unconventional Resources, Downstream, and Projects & Technology.
Upstream spans our worldwide conventional oil and gas businesses. It explores natural gas and crude oil, including in deep water, and produces these by developing onshore and offshore fields.
Integrated Gas cools natural gas to make liquefied natural gas (LNG) for transportation to customers around the world. It also converts natural gas to liquids (GTL). In addition, the business operates the infrastructure needed to deliver oil and gas to market, and it markets and trades crude oil and natural gas (including LNG) in support of the Upstream business.
Unconventional Resources, based in the Americas, produces tight and shale oil and gas. It also extracts bitumen from mined oil sands, which is converted to synthetic crude oil.
Downstream manufactures oil products, biofuels and chemicals, which are then distributed and sold. It also trades Shell’s hydrocarbons and other energy-related products and manages our fleet of natural gas carriers and oil tankers.
We believe that oil and gas will remain a vital part of the global energy mix for many decades to come. Our role is to ensure that we extract and deliver these energy resources profitably and in environmentally and socially responsible ways.
We seek a high standard of performance, maintaining a strong and growing long-term position in the competitive environments in which we operate. We aim to work closely with our customers, partners and policymakers to advance more efficient and sustainable use of energy and natural resources.
Shell’s history in the ASEAN region can be traced back to 1891. Shell is active across ASEAN in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam – spanning the range of our Upstream and Downstream activities.
Shell is among the largest retailers of fuel oil and oil products in ASEAN, as well as being a key private sector employer. It is one of the largest foreign taxpayers in ASEAN. Shell is a key partner of ASEAN national oil companies (PETRONAS, PTI) both within and outside the region.
- Shell’s upstream activities in the Philippines (Malampaya) help to provide 30% of the country’s gas.
- Two of Shell’s seven shared business operations centres are in ASEAN (Malaysia and the Philippines).
- Shell’s largest worldwide refinery is located in Pulau Bukom in Singapore.
- Malaysia is the home of Shell’s Asia-Pac wells expertise as well as the incubator of Shell’s Gas-to-Liquids project in Bintulu, Sarawak.
- Shell started offshore exploration activities in Myanmar in 2015.
Our people are central to the delivery of our strategy. Working together on some of the most innovative and exciting energy projects in the world, from the world’s deepest offshore oil and gas field to the largest floating liquefied natural gas production facility, we are making an impact on the future of energy.
