A Shell trader

Our best resource is the people that work here.

Our global trading network gives us a 24-hour market presence. We are active in most crude oil markets, sourcing from a wide range of suppliers and selling to a wide range of customers both within and outside Shell. The same global coverage applies to refined products and feedstocks, natural gas and power. Our 50 years experience in the natural gas industry makes us one of the world’s most experienced players: our supply portfolio includes access to significant volumes of equity LNG and gas-to-liquids products.
