Shell has come a long way in the UAE, our evolution in many ways a reflection of the country’s development.

Today, our presence in the country is as strong as it has ever been. By opening regional headquarters in Dubai for our core businesses, Shell brings its world-class expertise closer to customers and stakeholders in the region and beyond. 

Shell in the UAE is now more than just a household name. We are the partner of choice for some of the most prestigious industries in the world, and through our Exploration & Production, Gas & Power, Global Solutions and marketing businesses we are constantly enhancing these partnerships.

Of course, this contemporary image of Shell as a diverse, dynamic and globally strategic innovator is a far cry from the day in 1957, when we set up our first agency in the relative backwater of Dubai.

It was the day on which Shell embarked on a journey of discovery with the people of the UAE, and a journey which leaves a rich legacy upon which the various companies continue to build.

By opening regional headquarters in the UAE, we are reinforcing our commitment to the country, as well as taking a strategic business decision which makes sense in a global economy where being close to customers means the world.

The spirit of partnership nurtured by Shell Companies lives on in the UAE, and we will continue to seek new ways to support the government and people to help the country grow.
