Shell in the region

Present in over 100 countries with more than 100,000 employees, Shell helps to meet the world’s growing energy demand in economically, environmentally and socially responsible ways. We produce 3.1 million barrels of oil equivalent every day, and sell transport fuel to some 10 million customers a day.

Shell is focused on delivery and growth, leveraging our strong portfolio and maintaining our commitment to sustainable development. We are convinced that contributing to sustainable development helps create business value and reduces operational and financial risk, making us a more cooperative and profitable company.

As a global energy company we set high standards of performance and ethical behaviours. We are judged by how we act – our reputation is upheld by how we live up to our core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people. The Shell General Business Principles, Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics help everyone at Shell act in line with these values and comply with all relevant legislation and regulations.

Shell’s partnerships in the Middle East stretch back over a century. Today they are involved in exploration and production in Abu Dhabi, Egypt, Iran, Oman, Syria, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq. In the region we actively endeavour to address the key development challenge of human capacity building. Shell believes and abides by the policy that a diverse staff and inclusive work environment is vital to building relationships with employees, customers, suppliers, partners, governments and other stakeholders.

Since Marcus Samuel’s first tanker passed through the Suez Canal on August 24th 1892, Shell has had a close association with the Arab world. Today, enshrined in our business principles is the goal to promote the development and best use of human talent and equal opportunity employment.
