As the complexities of the global gas market increase, major resource holders can benefit from experienced partners who know how to maximise value from the most technically challenging projects. Shell Catalysts and Technologies can maximise the value of existing resources, lower the cost of developing new ones, and bring larger supplies of gas to market over longer distances and through ever more complex value chains.

Today, Shell is the world’s largest LNG shipping operator. It manages and operates 43 of the world’s carriers, around 12% of the global fleet. Along with its joint-venture partners, Shell is linked to about one-third of the world’s LNG carrier operations.

Shell Catalysts & Technologies is involved in every stage of the LNG value gain, from the upstream (finding the fields and extracting the gas from them) to the downstream (liquifying the gas), shipping, turning the LNG back into gas and distributing to customers. We also have the necessary logistical, contractual, financing, and marketing skills to put together a complex LNG mega-project and make it happen. That breadth of expertise is essential in creating confidence with key stakeholders; banks, contractors, partners, and resource-holding nations. 

Plants designed by Shell Catalysts & Technologies are uniquely integrated, ensure maximum efficiency and uptime, and meet or exceed design capacities as a result of our expertise. Safety is at the forefront of our designs and it applies stringent safety standards and assurance processes.

With over 50 years of LNG experience from the begining, Shell ensures that potential hazards and operability issues are addressed. Our involvement in a project helps to ensure gas facilities are built to the highest standards and meet or exceed performance targets.

Shell is one of the world’s largest LNG shipping operators, managing and operating more than 40 carriers with 50 on time-charter. Combined, these 90 LNG carriers, approximately, constitute around 20% of the global LNG shipping fleet.

Shell is involved at every stage of the LNG journey: finding the fields and extracting gas, liquefying gas and shipping it, then turning the LNG back into gas and distributing it to customers.

Floating LNG

FLNG technology can tap into gas resources from underwater gas fields previously too challenging to reach.

LNG for transport

Liquefied natural gas can be a cost-competitive and cleaner fuel for heavy-duty road transport, shipping and industrial users.
