Integrated Gas & New Energies

The vessel was constructed in Japan for carrying LNG on the Australia/Japan route.

In Integrated Gas and New Energies, we focus on liquefying natural gas (LNG) and converting gas to liquids (GTL) so that it can be safely stored and shipped to markets around the world. The New Energies business has been established to explore and invest in new low-carbon opportunities.

Today, more than ever, energy powers human civilisation. At the same time, the world needs to mitigate the threat of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. An affordable, environmentally acceptable and technically proven option to power and sustain people’s lives is to increase the world’s reliance on natural gas, the cleanest-burning fossil fuel.

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

Shell has been a pioneer in liquefied natural gas (LNG) for more than 50 years. In 2015, Shell sold 22.6mt of equity LNG globally, which is about a 9% share of global LNG sales.

In 2015, Japan imported a total of 85mtpa of LNG, which is about 35% of globally traded LNG. Shell is a leading LNG provider to Japan and has been supplying the country through joint venture projects such as Brunei LNG, North West Shelf, Malaysia LNG, Oman LNG and Sakhalin Energy, as well as directly from Shell’s portfolio of LNG. Shell works with Japanese partners across both Upstream and LNG, and Shell Japan coordinates a wide range of activities between Shell and these partners.

Chemicals

Shell Chemicals Japan Ltd. was established on 1 August 2001 by integrating the chemicals businesses in Japan owned by the Shell Group and Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K.

Shell Chemicals Japan is a 100% subsidiary company of the Shell Group in Japan, and has operated the chemicals business in Japan as a member of Shell Chemicals for about half a century.

In August 2001, we changed our company name from Shell Japan to Shell Chemicals Japan Ltd. when the chemical businesses of Shell Group and Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K. were integrated. In addition, the trading business of oil products and petrochemical products of Showa Shell Sekiyu was transferred to Shell Chemicals Japan Ltd. in August 2007.

We are convinced that stable product supply of high quality and low cost services can be provided to our customers by utilizing the global business experience, network, business resources of the Shell Group and the strength of Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K. as a manufacturer.

The Shell Group recognises Asia as an important market. In Shell Chemicals Japan, we are making our best effort to create further value while understanding the needs of customers precisely and responding to a structural change of Asian and Japanese chemical industries with high flexibility.
