You all must have heard about Shell. If you own a vehicle, then there is no chance that you don’t know about the top gas and oil provider in the world.
There are several Shell gas stations located in every city across the world, therefore it is almost impossible to not know what Shell is.
However, if you want to know more details about the remarkable petrochemicals manufacturer, then keep on reading.
Shell oil company is known for being the top subsidiary for providing oil in the United States. It is the largest oil and gas provider in America and has always been praised for its capability of marketing gasoline and natural gas. Shell is also known as a petrochemical manufacturer.
The head quarters of Shell is located in Houston, Texas. There are about 22,000 employees who are working in the U.S alone.
Let’s now get into the history of Shell. The well known oil and gas providing company, Shell was founded 106 years ago in the year 1912. In 1997, Shell and Texaco expanded their business by entering into the marketing and refining fields, which without any doubt increased their net worth.
In 2001, Texaco merged with Chevron. This is when Shell bought Texaco’s shares in their joint venture. In 2002, Shell started converting all the Texaco stations into Shell gas stations and this process was completed in the year 2004 and is known as the largest retail rebranding initiative to ever happen in the history of American business.
However, in the last few years Shell has limited its products to chemical and petroleum products as the Royal Dutch Shell broke off with its natural gas and power businesses. Therefore, now the Shell company is not known for providing natural gas.
