Company Profile

The Shell companies in the Philippines (SciP) represent various companies operating in oil and gas exploration, extraction, refining and delivery to consumers. Commencing its operations in 1914, SciP has grown to be one of the Philippines’ largest investors, directly employing some 4,000 employees nationwide.

SciP is part of Shell, a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies operating in more than 90 countries and territories, with approximately 93,000 employees. Shell helps to meet the world’s growing demand for energy, aiming to do so in economically, environmentally and socially responsible ways.

Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation (PSPC) is involved in the manufacture, marketing, sales, supply and distribution of oil products, serving customers in almost every field of transport, commerce and industry with its wide range of high quality fuels, lubricants, aviation fuel, bitumen and other specialty products. Pilipinas Shell commenced operations of its first crude distiller in Tabangao, Batangas in 1962 (now an oil refinery since 1994). Shell also opened a refrigerated LPG terminal in 1983, the first of its kind in Asia operated by Shell Gas Eastern, Inc. with trading handled in the region by Shell Gas Trading Asia Pacific.

In the business of oil and gas exploration and production, Shell Philippines Exploration B.V. (SPEX) operates the Malampaya Deepwater Gas-to-Power project together with its joint venture partners. Malampaya represents the largest and most significant industrial investment in the history of the Philippines. It heralded the birth of the country’s natural gas industry, enabling the supply of clean, environment-friendly fuel and providing 2,700 megawatts of power to Luzon for a period of 20 years. This represents roughly 45-50% of Luzon’s power generation requirements, providing the country a considerably long-term revenue stream to the government, in addition to considerable foreign exchange savings.

In 2004, Shell set up a pioneering new activity with the establishment of the Shell Shared Services Centre (SSSC)-Manila (now Shell Shared Services (Asia), B.V. or SSSA), which provides accounting, human resources and other business-related processing services to Shell companies in various parts of the world. Now employing over two thousand staff, SSSA has been recognised for its operational and compliance excellence.

To further strengthen and support SciP’s corporate social responsibility thrusts, Pilipinas Shell Foundation, Inc. (PSFI) was established in 1982 to serve as the social investment arm of Shell in the Philippines. PSFI implements various training and community development programmes in communities nationwide, and on its 25th year in 2007 the foundation surpassed its 1 million beneficiaries mark. PSFI has benefited five (5) million people all over the country.
