Shell’s footprint

Shell established a presence in Mauritania in 2019 through Shell Exploration and Production Mauritania (C10) B.V. and Shell Exploration and Production Mauritania (C19) B.V. with registered branches in Mauritania. C19 was in the deregistration process in 2021. Shell has a 90% interest in two offshore blocks.

Country financial analysis

The statutory corporate income tax rate in Mauritania is 25%, while the applicable tax rate for the branch activities is 27%. The loss figure in the table mainly decreased because of the completion of the C19 exploration activities. Both branches have incurred losses since inception and therefore do not yet pay corporate income tax.

A branch is an office or business presence in a location other than where the corporate entity is established.
