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. C10 has a 60% interest in offshore exploration Block C10 and a 90% interest in offshore exploration Block C2. C19 was deregistered in 2022.

Country financial analysis

The statutory corporate income tax rate in Mauritania is 25%, while the applicable tax rate for the branch activities is 27%. Both branches have incurred losses since inception and therefore do not pay corporate income tax.

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