Shipping Fleet

Oil tankers

Shell manages a fleet of around 10 Oil tankers.

A-Class (Oil)

The A-Class are specialist vessels of 10,000 Metric Ton (MT) capacity that typically carry multiple parcels of various grades of refined oil products such as Kerosene and Mogas, aviation and automotive fuels respectively.

The class includes “Acavus” (pictured here)

B-Class (Oil)

The B-Class vessels are 50,000 MT capacity Medium Range (MR) tankers that also have the ability to move certain grades of bulk chemicals. They are employed on a worldwide trading pattern but usually operate across specific regions, e.g. Asia-Pacific, Caribbean or the Middle East.

The class includes “Batissa” and “Bursa” (pictured here).

O-Class (Oil)

The O-Class vessels are Shell's largest crude oil tankers, at more than 300,000 tonnes and over 330 metres in length. They carry large quantities of unrefined crude oil around the world.

The class includes “Orthis” (pictured here).

T-Class (Oil)

The T-Class vessels are Long Range (LR) type product carriers of 70,000 MT capacity; capable of taking significant volumes of bulk refined petroleum products such Gas Oil, Naphtha and Kerosene to receivers across the globe, typically over long distances.

The class includes “Tectus”, “Tonna” (pictured here) and “Turris”.

LNG Carriers

Shell manages around 40 LNG carriers,  one of the largest LNG fleets in the world. Including:

A-Class (LNG)

The A-Class vessels trade between Brunei and our customers in Japan and South Korea and are rapidly expanding to explore new trading routes both regionally and internationally.

The A-class vessels include "Arkat" (pictured here).

B-Class (LNG)

The B-Class vessels have been trading between Brunei and our customers in Japan since 1972 and carry on average 75,000 m3 of LNG.

The B-Class vessels include "Bebatik" (pictured here)

NLNG-Class (LNG)

The NLNG class of liquified natural gas (LNG) carriers are managed by Shell, but jointly resourced with Nigeria LNG (NLNG) Limited's officers. Shell is in the process of training NLNG officers and crew to take over the day-to-day manning of these vessels as part of a nationalisation programme.

These vessels carry on average 135,000 cubic metres of LNG from Nigeria to Northwest Europe.

The class includes "LNG Bonny" (pictured here).

G-Class (LNG)

The G-Class liquified natural gas (LNG) carriers each deliver approx. 130,000 cubic metres of LNG to Shell's customers around the world.

The class includes "Gemmata" (pictured here).

Nakilat Q-Max & Q-Flex (LNG)

In 2006, Shell and Nakilat (Qatar) celebrated the signing of an agreement in which Shell would manage the fleet of 25 liquified natural gas (LNG) carriers which were being built for Nakilat.

These ships are revolutionary in terms of both their design and sheer size. The Mozah, pictured here, was the largest LNG vessel ever to be built, and now delivers huge quantities of LNG around the world.

The Mozah is the length of three and a half football pitches, is half as high as the London Eye, is the equivalent to 14 London double-decker buses high, and 34 buses long.

NWS-Class (LNG)

The Northwest class of liquifieid natural gas (LNG) carriers are attached to the Northwest Shelf Project in Australia, and are managed by Shell Tankers Australia. The vessels carry on average 130,000 cubic metres of LNG from northwest Australia to the Far East.

The class includes "Northwest Seaeagle" (pictured here)
