A leading UK business
Shell is a major energy producer and supplier. We provide around 13% of the UK's total oil and gas production. We also make a vital contribution to the UK’s energy security by delivering energy into the UK from further afield. The natural gas we extract from Norway’s Ormen Lange field, for example, meets up to 20% of the UK’s total needs.
As well as delivering energy and providing products and services we make a significant contribution to the UK through employment, tax revenues and investment.
Producing oil and gas
Shell produces oil and gas from more than 65 interests in the North Sea, operating more than 33 offshore installations and one FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offtake vessel). We operate three onshore gas plants and a marine terminal that distributes natural gas liquids around the world.
Fuelling the nation
Shell has a major business in the UK distributing and retailing fuels, lubricants, bitumen and chemicals. Our network of petrol stations in the country serves more than four million customers every week and our aviation business fuels 600 flights every day. Shell makes a fuel delivery somewhere in the UK roughly every two minutes.
Securing the skills we need
The UK is one of the biggest sources of the skilled people that we need to help us meet the world’s growing energy demand.
