Shell in Ireland

Our business activities in Ireland

The exploration and production business and, specifically, the development of the Corrib natural gas project, is a key part of Shell’s operations in Ireland. Shell's other businesses in Ireland – aviation fuel and chemicals.

In July 2005, Shell announced that it had signed sale and purchase agreements with Topaz Distribution and Logistics for the divestment of the majority of Shell’s oil products businesses in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The agreements relate to Shell’s retail, commercial fuels, lubricants, marine, and supply and distribution businesses.

The divestment of the oil products business is consistent with Shell’s international strategy of ‘more upstream businesses and profitable downstream businesses’.

Shell worldwide

Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemical companies.

Our operations are divided into four businesses: Upstream, Integrated Gas, Downstream, and Projects & Technology.

In Upstream we focus on exploration for new liquids and natural gas reserves and on developing major new projects where our technology and know-how add value for resource holders.

In Integrated Gas, 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.

In Downstream, we focus on turning crude oil into a range of refined products, which are moved and marketed around the world for domestic, industrial and transport use. In addition, we produce and sell petrochemicals for industrial use worldwide. Shell’s oil sands mining activities in North America are also part of the Downstream organisation.

Our Projects & Technology business is responsible for delivering new development projects and the research and development that leads to innovative and low-cost investments for the future.
