As one of the world’s leading energy companies Shell plays a key role in helping to meet the world’s growing energy demand in economically, environmentally and socially responsible ways. Shell has a history of over 50 years in Nigeria and the largest footprint of all the international oil and gas companies operating in the country.
Shell in Nigeria
Shell has been active in Nigeria since 1937. Shell companies and investments have played a pioneering role in onshore, shallow and deep water oil exploration and production. Shell has also been at the forefront of gas development, producing and delivering gas to domestic consumers and export markets for over 40 years.
Our core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people form the basis of the Shell General Business Principles.
