How long has Shell been in the Philippines?
In fact, Shell has had a presence here for over a century.
Back in 1914, English entrepreneur Marcus Samuel began selling kerosene here from a small fleet of tankers.
His family enterprise grew to become one of the world’s most trusted companies, Shell.
Today, Shell’s influence spans the whole of the Philippines,
continuing to support our country.
We’ve built a network of over a thousand service stations across the nation
and will continue to grow and evolve to become destination sites.
We’re driving development as well, by supplying fuels and lubricants for construction, manufacturing, and mining.
And we’re helping the Philippines respond to the world’s energy challenges.

As a whole, Shell is committed to pushing for progressiveness – through supporting education and the arts, encouraging modernity in agriculture, providing local options for infrastructure, and so much more.
