Long-term demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) is continuing to grow. Shell employs specialists across the world to manage an increasingly diverse portfolio.
Demand for LNG is expected to grow in the mid-term. Shell has access to the important LNG markets of Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America. Our mix of Shell-owned facilities and lease arrangements in regasification facilities around the world enables us to remain close to our markets.
In 2005, we were one of the first international oil companies to deliver LNG to India. The following year we delivered the first LNG to Mexico, and we were involved in the first delivery of LNG to China through the North West Shelf Venture.
Our track record in delivery also helps us maintain access to these key markets. For example, Brunei LNG, where Shell is a partner, has delivered more than 5,000 cargoes safely and without missing a single contractual obligation since its start-up in the 1970s.
We are able to meet our customers' long-term energy needs and respond flexibly to short-term changes in demand. Shell International LNG Supply (SILS) buys and sells LNG to and from Shell, its partners and third parties. Its offices are located in The Hague, Dubai, Singapore and Houston. SILS also manages the shipping fleet to support the gas supply business.
