Following the growing energy needs of wholesale customers, Shell has unveiled a new business line in Nigeria to expand natural gas marketing and sales which will provide more and cleaner energy solutions in the country.

The new business line Shell Energy Nigeria, the company says, will deliver competitive and reliable energy for power generation and industrial users and to develop gas distribution to serve people in new regions.

“In line with the Federal Government’s ‘decade of gas’ initiative, Shell Energy Nigeria will strive to deliver gas-based energy solutions to a broad range of businesses across the country to help drive economic development and deliver greater value from the country’s natural resources,” said the general manager of Shell Energy Nigeria, Markus Hector.

Shell Energy Nigeria’s gas solutions are designed to partner with other sources of energy – including renewables – to provide competitively priced and flexible energy, while helping the country to transition to a lower carbon energy system.

The new business will draw on the capabilities and experience of Shell Energy, a leading global provider of reliable, integrated and innovative energy solutions from a portfolio of natural gas, power and environmental products. It offers a comprehensive selection of energy solutions available from a single supplier and made possible by one of the industry’s largest trading operations.

Country chair of Shell companies in Nigeria Osagie Okunbor said, “Shell Energy Nigeria demonstrates our ongoing commitment to powering progress by providing more and cleaner energy solutions in the country. It brings to Nigeria Shell’s decades of marketing and trading experience, a wealth of market knowledge and its ability to integrate energy solutions to support economic development in Nigeria.”
