Natural Gas

Shell supplies gas to customers in more countries than any other energy company.

Shell Energy North America is the primary marketer of Shell's natural gas production in North America. This ensures access to some of the continent’s most productive reserves, including natural gas fields in South Texas, along the Gulf Coast, in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and in Canada. Shell Energy North America operates in a diverse range of markets from small businesses to large scale manufacturing, public sector organizations and national retail with a focus on providing:

  • Reliable supply
  • Competitive and flexible solutions
