Shell has been present in the Bahamas since 2002, following the acquisition of Enterprise Oil. The entity Shell acquired, formerly called Shell E&P Ireland Offshore Inc., held upstream investments that have since been divested. In 2019, Shell E&P Ireland Offshore Inc. was renamed Shell Bahamas Power Company Inc. (SBPC). SBPC is the designated company for the implementation of the proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification and power plants project in partnership with a Bahamas state-owned entity, Bahamas Power and Light Company Limited.

Since 2018, Shell in the Bahamas has included Shell Western Supply and Trading Limited, a crude oil trading business serving West African and Latin American markets.

Throughout this report, “country” is used as the primary descriptor for a geographical area because that is the word used by the OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project in their proposal for country-by-country reporting (CbCR). This is one of the four minimum reporting standards to which over 100 countries have committed, covering the tax residence jurisdictions of nearly all large multinational enterprises (MNEs). In this report “country” may also refer to locations, jurisdictions or territories which have their own tax regimes or discrete rules.
