Nigeria is a core part of Shell’s global oil and gas business. For more than 60 years, Shell has worked in partnership with the Federal Government of Nigeria, local and international companies, investors, contractors and communities to develop the country’s oil and gas sector.
Nigeria’s oil and gas resources can power a diverse economy, expand domestic industries and increase the prosperity of its people. In 2019, Shell Companies in Nigeria paid about $1.5 billion in taxes and royalties to the Nigerian government.
Nigeria is a thriving and vibrant country, offering opportunities for people to improve their livelihoods. The scale of the opportunity is mirrored by the scale of the challenges to provide affordable energy, education, healthcare and conditions for local businesses to grow.
The SPDC JV continues its relentless focus to prevent spills from oil production in the Niger Delta. In 2019, the company reduced operational spills to their lowest levels, significantly reduced breaches from wellheads and cleaned up more spill sites than ever before.
