Shell's footprint

Shell has been active in Japan's energy industry for more than 120 years. We work with Japanese partners and customers worldwide across our main businesses in Upstream, Integrated Gas, Renewables and Downstream. At the end of 2020, Shell acquired 100% of Shell Lubricants Japan (SLJ), including SLJ's activities at lubricants blending plants in Yokohama and Kobe, and research and development facilities in Atsugi. In 2022, we expanded our power trading business in Japan with the acquisition of Nagaoka Power Generation Limited.
