  • Shell Aviation is a leading global supplier of aviation fuels and lubricants with a heritage of over 100 years. We supply fuel at around 800 airports in approximately 40 countries. On average, we refuel an aircraft every 12 seconds.
  • Our customers comprise a gamut of airports and airlines plus private customers such as corporate jet operators and flying clubs. We produce fuels and lubricants (in a range of grades); market, sell and distribute them; and offer further services that help our customers operate as efficiently as possible. 

The term ‘Shell Aviation’ collectively refers to individual Shell Group companies engaged in the supplying fuels and lubricants to the aviation industry throughout the world.  These are separate and distinct entities. Here, the collective expressions ‘Shell’ and ‘Shell Aviation’ may be used for convenience where reference is made in general to those companies or where no useful purpose is served by identifying any particular company or companies.

Cautionary Note

The companies in which Royal Dutch Shell plc directly and indirectly owns investments are separate entities. In this presentation “Shell”, “Shell group” and “Royal Dutch Shell” are sometimes used for convenience where references are made to Royal Dutch Shell plc and its subsidiaries in general. Likewise, the words “we”, “us” and “our” are also used to refer to subsidiaries in general or to those who work for them. These expressions are also used where no useful purpose is served by identifying the particular company or companies.

‘‘Subsidiaries’’, “Shell subsidiaries” and “Shell companies” as used in this presentation refer to companies in which Royal Dutch Shell either directly or indirectly has control, by having either a majority of the voting rights or the right to exercise a controlling influence. The companies in which Shell has significant influence but not control are referred to as “associated companies” or “associates” and companies in which Shell has joint control are referred to as “jointly controlled entities”.

In this presentation, associates and jointly controlled entities are also referred to as “equity-accounted investments”. The term “Shell interest” is used for convenience to indicate the direct and/or indirect ownership interest held by Shell in a venture, partnership or company, after exclusion of all third-party interest.
