Our terminal at Shell Haven
Shell has had operations in Shell Haven on the Thames Estuary for more than 100 years.
Shell Haven is the location for our UK aviation fuel terminal. The site, which is in Thurrock near to Corringham and Stanford-le-Hope, receives aviation fuel from tankers arriving from across the world and distributes the fuel across the UK via pipelines and road freight to various airports including Heathrow and Birmingham.
Curiously, despite the long association, the name ‘Shell Haven’ is entirely coincidental.

Shell is exploring with Thurrock Council a possible change of use to some of our land in the Corringham area. This could make it available for housing in the future.
The Council is currently commencing its Local Plan process and it will consider the future development options for the district over the coming months and years, identifying land for housing, community and business uses and other development. The land which Shell is considering putting forward (indicated on the map below) is one of a number of sites that Thurrock Council will consider through this process.
At this stage, there are no fixed plans for the site. Shell is keen to understand the views of the local community and the Council.
We will be engaging with those in the nearby community to better understand how they could be affected and welcome input from anyone in the area. If you would like to ask a question, or share an opinion, please use the feedback form below.
We aim to be a valued member of the community. At the terminal, operations are managed with care for the safety of staff, the community and the environment.
If you live locally and you have feedback, or a question for us, please fill in this form and we will reply as soon as possible.
