Shell aims to boost Asia biz
    2017-September-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ROYAL Dutch Shell aims to expand marketing operations in Asia and wants 20 percent of sales from its fuel stations worldwide to come from recharging electric vehicles and low carbon fuels by 2025, as the world shifts away from crude.

The Anglo-Dutch firm, with 43,000 fuel stations in 80 countries, aims to expand in China and India, as well as Mexico, where it sees fossil fuel growth in the next decade, said John Abbott, the head of refining, trading and marketing.

But he said Shell remained focused on a future of where demand for alternatives to petrol and diesel cars would rise.

“Shell will be part of leading the de-carbonizing of the energy system. We have to accept that is the way the world is going,” he said.

He said Shell, the world’s top roadside fuel station operator, was “working back from the customer, which is very relevant as we go through the energy transition.”

Britain and France have said they will ban sales of new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040, while China and India are considering such a step, putting pressure on Shell and its peers to show investors how they can make profits in a world consuming less fossil fuel.

Electric and hybrid vehicles represent only a fraction of the world’s 1 billion car fleet now, but Shell forecasts it will account for about a quarter in 2040.

Other fuels, such as hydrogen and natural gas, are also expected to become more popular as drivers seek lower polluting alternatives in the shift away from petrol and diesel.

Abbott said Shell wanted about 20 percent of fuels offered at its forecourts by 2025 to be low carbon intensity, including biofuels, battery recharging and liquefied natural gas, which can be used to power trucks. He did not say how much business was generated by such energy alternatives now.

Shell, which is betting on marketing to secure its revenues, plans to expand retail operations in China, India, Indonesia and also Mexico, where it opened its first fuel station this month, Abbott said. (SD-Agencies)
