What They Do
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.
Their strategy seeks to reinforce their 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 their activities.
In Canada, they do everything from exploring for oil and gas, to refining and manufacturing, to discovering new ways to reduce emissions, to delivering fuels to their customers from coast to coast.
They have many successful businesses and projects across Canada, including:
a strong and rapidly growing Upstream business built around the Montney and the Duvernay shale plays, on a foundation of Foothills sour gas;
a successful Downstream business anchored in their Sarnia refinery (Ontario) and their Scotford refinery and upgrader (Alberta) as well as their two world-class petrochemicals plants near Edmonton;
a network of 1,300 retail sites across Canada – a vital point of connection for their customers to them – which makes them one of the pre-eminent fuel retailers in the country;
strong Aviation, Sulphur and Lubricants businesses;
an innovative Supply and Trading business;
a prospective LNG export project in Kitimat, B.C.
Canada is especially well-suited to offer lower carbon energy solutions thanks to their highly experienced workforce, their abundance of natural resources and supportive government policies. In Canada, Shell is actively exploring opportunities to invest in new fuels for transport, renewable power and customer solutions enabled by digital technology to lead the global movement towards cleaner energy.
