Who are we?

The pioneers of Malaysia's exploration and production sector, Shell first set up land operations in Sarawak in 1910 and laid the foundations for an industry that would later help to fuel the growth of the nation. In 1960’s, Shell became the pioneer in Malaysia’s offshore oil exploration and production and, offshore gas production in the 1980’s.

More than a century later, and now operating as contractors to PETRONAS, we continue to extract and deliver oil and gas efficiently, profitably, and in environmentally friendly and socially responsible ways to meet evolving customer needs and the growing demand for energy.

As a responsible long-term partner in Malaysia's development, we work closely with customers, partners, and the government to advance more efficient and sustainable use of energy and natural resources. Our latest achievements include the SK408 PSC Gorek, Larak and Bakong in Sarawak, first fully solar powered platform developments come on stream.
