From operating Australia’s first oil refinery, which was central to meeting Australia’s fuel needs, to fuelling the first QANTAS commercial flight in the 1920s, to playing a foundation role in building some of Australia’s largest and most innovative natural resource developments - as the energy needs of Australia have changed, so have we.

Now, as Australia and the world transition to a lower-carbon energy future, the needs of customers are changing again. We’re determined to partner with Australia through this change as well, by complementing our position as a natural gas supplier with investments in the power sector, renewable energy and carbon farming to offer customers integrated energy solutions.

Thank you to our people - past and present - and partners for your contribution throughout Shell’s Australian history. You’re also central to us reaching our ambition of net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner, in step with society. This is an ambition we can’t achieve alone.
