Shell has been in Martinez since 1915, and being a valued member of the community is important to us. We are proud to produce some the world’s cleanest-burning gasoline, and we want to operate in a way that respects our neighbors and the natural environment. This blog is just one way we hope to engage with you. As with many such forums, we will moderate for foul language, personal attacks and the like.

So come here to learn about the exciting things happening at Shell, and share your news with us!
