Shell Trinidad and Tobago Limited


Shell has been in Trinidad & Tobago for over 100 years and has played a major role in the development of the country’s hydrocarbon industry. Currently, Shell delivers an integrated gas operation to supply the petrochemical market and Atlantic LNG and is present in both offshore and onshore blocks (both operated and non-operated). We also have an equity in the Atlantic LNG plant in each of the four trains at the Point Fortin facility.

Shell’s purpose is to power progress together with more and cleaner energy solutions. We believe that rising standards of living for a growing global population are likely to continue to drive demand for energy, including oil and gas, for some time to come.  At the same time, technology evolution and the issue of climate change, are heralding a transition to a lower-carbon, multisource energy system. 

Against this backdrop, this partnership underscores Shell’s commitment to helping Trinidad and Tobago’s move towards a low-carbon energy future through supporting renewable energy initiatives in the EPIC programme. Our participation aligns seamlessly with our global strategy to promote the energy transition in the countries where we operate, as we strive to find ways to provide more and cleaner energy solutions.
