Thank you for your interest in learning more about Shell’s activities in Nigeria.

You will find that the 2019 edition of the Shell Nigeria Briefing Notes has a different layout than previous years with more photos. This has been designed to better illustrate how we continue to be a major contributor to the country’s economy and people.

Through 2018 we continued to produce crude oil and naturalgas, distribute gas to industries and for domestic power generation  and produce Liquefied Natural Gas for export, which generated revenues for the government. The companies also contribute social investment in communities and support the development of Nigerian communities and indigenous companies.

In 2019, we will continue to cement our place as a valued partner by maintaining our close collaboration with our joint venture partners, host communities, the tiers of government in Nigeria and other stakeholders to further contribute towards the drive for sustained economic growth in Nigeria.

Social Investment

Shell Companies in Nigeria work with government, communities and civil society to fund and implement social programmes that have a lasting impact on people’s lives in the Niger Delta and Nigeria as whole. Some of these investments are mandated by federal legislation, such as requiring all oil and gas producing companies in Nigeria to contribute funds from their annual budgets to the Niger Delta Development Commission, which undertakes sustainable development projects in the Niger Delta.

Nigerian Content Development

Shell Companies in Nigeria continue to support local content, develop the country’s human resources and strengthen Nigerian contracting capacity. This is achieved through sustainable partnerships, which further the socio-economic development of the Niger Delta and Nigeria as a whole.
