About Shell Shipping & Maritime

Offering high level expertise and decades of experience, Shell Shipping & Maritime provides group businesses and operations with an unmatched and vital resource.

The Shell Shipping fleet

Shell has been in the business of shipping since the late 1800s. Today we manage one of the largest fleets of crude oil, oil products tankers and liquefied natural gas carriers in the world - all playing a vital role in the safe and secure delivery of energy.

Shell Shipping & Maritime Careers

At Shell, we’re proud to have such diversity within our fleet personnel. The greater the variety of perspectives we have on board, the greater the ideas we can develop.

The Challenge

The shipping of oil liquids and natural gases is vital to maintaining energy security, particularly in regions where indigenous resources cannot keep up with demand for power and mobility. Equally, oil and natural gas exporting countries depend heavily on shipping to honour their contracts with importers.

Many companies – including Shell – are investing to develop alternative and renewable sources of energy. But oil and gas will remain very important in the energy mix to 2050 and beyond. During that time, about three billion more consumers will be added to the world’s population.

And living standards in fast-growing, highly populous economies such as China and India are expected to see dramatic change. The global economy and global energy consumption will undoubtedly continue to fluctuate, but the underlying trend in energy use will still be up – and so will demand for shipping.

Meeting that Challenge head on

The Shell Shipping & Maritime is based in London, with specialist centres in Houston, The Hague, Singapore, Perth and Tokyo - networked to maritime professionals across the globe. Offering high level expertise and decades of experience, we provide group businesses and operations with an unmatched and vital resource.

The Organization's work supports many of Shell’s success stories: For example, in liquefied natural gas (LNG), and in marine elements of floating production and storage systems. Shell Shipping & Maritime enables the Shell Trading organisation to deliver safely on its contracts.

We safeguard Shell’s standards and reputation regarding maritime safety, environment, vessel quality assurance, oil spill preparedness, port and berth assessments, and emergency management.

We carry out audits as a governance assurance process for all group businesses with exposure to maritime activities and shipping.
