Shell businesses exist to meet the energy needs of society in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally viable, now and in future.

Shell operates in over 145 countries including India. Shell's presence in India goes back to more than 75 years, when it operated in the country as the pioneering oil and gas distribution company, Burmah Shell, formed out of the alliance between the Burmah Oil Company and Asiatic Petroleum (India) in 1928. Since then, the Shell logo has remained one of the well recognised international corporate symbols in India.

The rich legacy of Burmah Shell is one of the pillars on which Shell has built its present standing. Shell returned to India with the incorporation of Bharat Shell, a 51:49 joint venture between Shell and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited in 1993. Subsequently, in 1996, Shell India Private Limited, a 100% Shell-owned company, was incorporated to oversee the development of businesses in petroleum, natural gas, chemicals and renewable energy.
