Shell


Overview: 
"Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies with approximately 90,000 employees in over 70 countries. We believe that oil and gas will remain a vital part of the global energy mix for many decades to come. We aim to meet the energy needs of society in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally viable, now and in the future In the US, we operate in 50 states and employ about 20,000 people. We are a leading oil and gas producer in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, a recognized pioneer in oil and gas exploration and production technology; and one of America’s leading oil and natural gas producers, gasoline and natural gas marketers and petrochemical manufacturers. Activities: We explore for crude oil and natural gas worldwide, both in conventional fields and from sources such as tight rock, shale and coal formations. We work to develop new crude oil and natural gas supplies from major fields. We also extract bitumen from oil sands, which we convert into synthetic crude oil. We cool natural gas to produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) that can be safely shipped to markets around the world, and we convert gas to liquids (GTL). Our portfolio of refineries and chemical plants enables us to capture value from the oil and gas that we produce, turning them into a range of refined and petrochemical products which are moved and marketed around the world for domestic, industrial and transport use. The products we sell include gasoline, diesel, heating oil, aviation fuel, marine fuel, LNG for transport, lubricants, bitumen and sulphur. We also produce and sell ethanol from sugar cane in Brazil, through our Raízen joint venture. The distinctive Shell pecten, a trademark in use since the early part of the 20th century, and trademarks in which the word Shell appears, help raise the profile of our brand globally. A strong patent portfolio underlies the technology that we employ in our various businesses. In total, we have around 11,500 granted patents and pending patent applications. Our Business at a Glance: Shell’s business is divided into three areas: Upstream, Integrated Gas and Downstream: • Our Upstream business explores for and extracts crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids, and develops major new projects. It markets and transports oil and gas, and operates the infrastructure necessary to deliver them to market. The Upstream business also extracts bitumen from mined oil sands and converts it into synthetic crude oil. • The Integrated Gas business, which includes our New Energies business, manages Shell’s manufacturing and distribution of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and gas-to-liquids products. It comprises natural gas exploration and extraction and the operation of the upstream and midstream infrastructure necessary to deliver gas to market. Additionally, it markets and trades crude oil, natural gas, LNG, electricity, carbon-emission rights as well as markets and sells LNG as a fuel for heavy-duty vehicles and marine vessels. New Energies invests in low-carbon energy solutions such as biofuels, hydrogen, wind and solar power. • Our Downstream business is made up of a number of different oil products and chemicals activities, part of an integrated value chain, including trading activities, that turns crude oil and other feedstocks into a range of products which are moved and marketed around the world for domestic, industrial and transport use. The products we sell include gasoline, diesel, heating oil, aviation fuel, marine fuel, lubricants, bitumen and sulphur. In addition, we produce and sell petrochemicals for industrial use worldwide. o Our Projects & Technology organisation manages the delivery of our major projects and drives research and innovation to develop new technology solutions. It provides technical services and technology capability for our Integrated Gas, Upstream and Downstream activities. It is also responsible for providing functional leadership across Shell in the areas of safety and environment, contracting and procurement, wells activities and greenhouse gas management.
