About Shell and Jazz Fest
Shell has been a part of Louisiana for more than a century. With almost every aspect our business represented here – including Deepwater exploration and production, pipeline, refining and manufacturing and a retail network – we are proud to call Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico home. Our ambition is to help shape a positive future here through our business activities and social investments.
Shell has been the presenting sponsor of Jazz Fest since 2006. The partnership between Shell and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival began in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Our decision to sponsor Jazz Fest helped send a clear signal to our employees and to the world that New Orleans is the home for our Gulf of Mexico operations and open for business. Today, the festival and city have never been stronger.
Shell continues to invest billions of dollars into safely running and growing our operations here. We can do this because people know us and trust us – Jazz Fest is a big part of how we earn that trust. Our continued involvement with the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival Presented is just one example of we honor this unique, vibrant place we call home.
