Shell History in Pakistan
Shell has an over 100 years presence in the Subcontinent.

printable version

The Shell brand name enjoys a 100-year history in this part of the world, dating back to 1899 when Asiatic Petroleum, the far eastern marketing arm of two companies: Shell Transport Company and Royal Dutch Petroleum Company, began importing kerosene oil from Azerbaijan into the subcontinent. Even today, the legacy of the past is visible in a storage tank carrying the date - 1898. The documented history of Royal Dutch Shell plc in Indo_Pakistan subcontinent dates back to 1903 when partnership was struck between The Shell Transport & Trading Company and the Royal Dutch Petroleum Company to supply petroleum to Asia. In 1928, to enhance their distribution capabilities, the marketing interest of Royal Dutch Shell plc and the Burmah Oil Company Limited in India were merged and Burmah Shell Oil Storage & Distribution company of India was born. After the independence of Pakistan in 1947, the name was changed to the Burmah Shell Oil Distribution Company of Pakistan. In 1970, when 51% of the shareholding was transferred to Pakistani investors, the name of changed to Pakistan Burmah Shell (PBS) Limited. The Shell and the Burmah Groups, retained the remaining 49% in equal propostions. In February of 1993, as economic liberalisation began to take root and the Burmah divested from PBS, Shell Petroleum stepped into raise its stake to 51%. The years 2001-2 have seen the Shell Petroleum Company successively increasing its share, with the Group now having a 76% stake in Shell Pakistan Ltd (SPL)- an expression of confidence.

It is the flight of our customers that ensures the continuation of Shell Aviation. Our customers dictate all that we do because our success is directly related to the partnerships we develop with them. We have been serving all the major domestic & international airlines and aviators visiting major airfields of Pakistan since independence (1947). It is with this perspective that Shell has taken significant initiatives in the aviation fuelling industry in Pakistan. One of the main developments in infrastructure was the completion of the Jet A1 pipeline from Chaklala depot to the Islamabad Airport. This has improved safety standards and provided an uninterrupted supply to all Shell customers. The installation of Astranova, an Aviation specific IT system, in Islamabad and Karachi has resulted in 90% of aviation deliveries being handled electronically. Product portfolio

Shell aviation products can be classified into 4 groups: 1. Aviation gasoline: for use in reciprocating or piston engines (Avgas 100 LL) 2.

New Shell Petrol has been tested and specially designed to start working from the very first tank- saving you money. So if you like the idea of putting more miles in your tank, make sure your next fill-up is at Shell.

The Story behind our New Petrol At Shell we are constantly striving to create the best fuels for our customers. We have invested heavily in leading edge research and developement. We're working hard to give you better fuels which will take you further. We've conducted a range of laboratory tests, which have shown that our Better Mileage formula can help moving parts within your engine run more easily which effectively burns less energy - and a more efficient engine, means improved fuel economy. Testing something in laboratory conditions is one thing, but we need to be sure that our formulation lives up to the rigorous conditions you face every day on the road. We have proven through extensive car fleet tests, that fuels treated with our Better Mileage formula can deliver enhanced fuel economy when compared to untreated fuels. So we have taken this knowledge to develop our latest generation of fuels which are designed to offer better mileage than previous Shell formulations. How it Works with your Engine Drawing on our extensive experience in developing fuel, our team carefully assessed all the potential sources of engine inefficiency which could impact on fuel economy. We looked into the heart of the engine and developed a complete petrol formula designed not only to help keep your engine clean but also to reduce friction, improving combustion and the overall efficiency of the engine. Our testing is carried out at Shell's ISO 9001 quality accredited laboratories in the UK and Germany to procedures which are openly published (Society of Automobile Engineers USA). This test has been rigorously audited by leading independent body British Standards Institute. For our fleet tests, we took a wide range of popular cars and selected pairs of the same model, one running on untreated fuel, the other using Better Mileage formula. From the city to the open road, we tested these cars simultaneously for 10,000 miles, monitoring them continuously. At the end of the tests we were able to see that the fleet which experienced greater fuel economy was that using our Better Mileage formula.

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)
Shell Gas Pakistan History

printable version

Shell Gas LPG (Pakistan) Limited is a public limited LPG Company, listed on Karachi and Lahore stock exchange. The Company was incorporated in Pakistan in October 1966, initially as unlisted company, under the name of Burshane Pakistan Limited. Products and Services Our Performance In August 1982 the company’s shareholders decided to offer part of its equity to the general public in Pakistan thereby converting the company into a listed public limited concern. The company was granted permission by the Joint Registrar of Companies in Pakistan on December 28, 1999, to change its name from Burshane Pakistan Limited to Shell Gas LPG (Pakistan) Limited. The Shell International Petroleum Company Limited-UK holds majority shares (67.38%) in the paid up capital of the Company. The balance shares are held by individuals and others (15.06%), Financial Institutions (13.83%) and Insurance Companies (3.73%). The Company’s principal business activity is storing, filling and marketing of Liquefied Petroleum

Gas (LPG) throughout Pakistan. The first LPG bottling plant was set-up by Burshane adjacent to Pakistan Refinery in 1966. Due to its pioneering efforts in the LPG market in Pakistan, Shell is now a household name in Pakistan and is considered synonymous with Quality, Reliability and Safety with regards to marketing bottled LPG in Pakistan. In 2001 the Company participated in the privatisation of LPG business of Sui Southern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) and managed to secure the business. This has increased SGP’s indigenous allocations and gives it a market share of approximately 8%. Products and Services Shell Gas LPG (Pakistan) Limited currently markets LPG in three cylinder sizes i.e. 6Kg, 11.8Kg, and 45.4Kg to meet domestic and commercial customer requirements. To grow the value to shareholders by delivering robust profitability and leveraging our competitive edge, transition from Burshane to Shell Gas was started in Pakistan in line with the Shell Global strategy of extending the Shell brand equity and with the business expansion opportunities arising as a result of the Governments decision to deregulate the LPG industry. Shell’s LPG business in the country is therefore being repositioned under the Shell ‘Umbrella’. The transformation process that began in July 1999 with the launch of the Shell Gas brand in the Nawabshah territory has now been extended to over 50 territories throughout the country. The Shell brand brings with it the complete ‘Customer Value Proposition’ offering which includes;

• • • • • •

Assured availability Free maintenance of equipment Correct weight Safe cylinders One stop shop convenience Home delivery and safety awareness programme Shell Gas has a clear strategy to offer and deliver differentiated Customer Value Propositions to various segments of the market, in order to increase customer satisfaction & retain our position as the premium LPG brand available in the market.

These expectations include safe places to live and work, a healthy environment, conservation of our bio-diversity, environmental protection, clean air, clean water, reasonable return on investments and job opportunities, to name a few. At Shell Pakistan, we believe that the way to manage these challenges is through a commitment to the principles of Sustainable Development.

Mangrove Forests Preservation View the Forest Conservation Project Video Ayubia Natural Park Conservation Mangrove Forests Preservation With regards to the environment, we are focusing on two projects jointly with WWF. One is the protection and preservation of the mangrove forests in the Indus delta area (south of Karachi). Mangroves are important for fishing communities, which depend on these forests for their livelihood as well as for preservation of biodiversity. The mangrove forests in this area are degrading at an alarming rate and in a unique, first time partnership; WWF-Pakistan and Shell Pakistan are collaborating on this critical environmental concern.

View the Forest Conservation Project Video

View Forest Conservation Video (3.71MB) A joint partnership with WWF Pakistan. Working with remote coastal communities requires a long process of trust building. Since these communities are largely ignored and deprived of basic human facilities therefore they expected some support for their basic human needs such as health,education, drinking water etc. Therefore, an integrated conservation and development approach has been adopted.The social and development issues of the community are being addressed through networking etc. The communities of the area are now very receptive and contributing to the betterment of the environment of the area. The project has been putting special emphasis on building capacity of the local community to carry out conservation and development activities by themselves. Ayubia Natural Park Conservation Forest conservation is another area requiring urgent attention, with many of Pakistan’s forest being denuded at a rapid pace. Shell Pakistan has focused on an area near Islamabad called the AYUBIA NATIONAL PARK. Villagers who live below the forest line are consuming wood at the rate of 11 metric tons per household. At this pace, the forest will be almost extinct in 20 years. In its pilot project, Shell has focused its efforts in converting the households from firewood to LPG by providing LPG equipment at a subsidized rate to 300 households. The goal is to convert all 25000 houses from the surrounding communities to LPG, which will in turn substantially reduce the cutting down of trees. This programme is complemented by various awarenessbuilding programmes in the local schools about forest protection. Shell has provided computers and equipment to schools to facilitate this kind of learning. In our continuing efforts for the environmental improvement of the GALIAT, this year Shell has undertook the development of the NATHIA GALI PARK, which was inaugurated by Mr. Mohammed Akram Durrani, Chief Minister NWFP as Chief Guest on 5th August 2004.

Shell has always prided itself on its contribution towards social and welfare development in Pakistan. Since 1993, the company has donated over Rs. 40 million to a number of worthy causes. Shell has established itself as a responsible corporate citizen; not only working towards its profitability but also that of the community it is based in.

Shell Pakistan's relief activity for TSUNAMI victims.The PR has also got a very warm response in local media here in Pakistan and we have succesfully been able to obtain 6 prominent insertions in some of the leading daily newspapers. Community Initiatives At Shell Pakistan, we believe winning hearts and minds is as important as winning markets. We believe that business has a fundamental role in delivering society’s goals – be it economic, social or environmental. Over the last decade, we have developed a robust programme of social investment which supports organizations and initiatives in the areas of health, education, welfare, community development, heritage and

environment dedicated to the welfare of the underserved and underprivileged members of our society. As part of its commitment to our strong General Business Principles, Shell Pakistan believes Sustainable Development provides us the framework for meeting society’s expectations today and its aspirations for tomorrow. We as a responsible corporate citizen feel that in a country where we are doing business, we need to work shoulder to shoulder in solving the problems faced by society. There are four primary areas, on which we focus for our social investment. Those are: health, education, environment and heritage. The projects include LAYTON RAHMATULLAH BENEVOLENT TRUST (LRBT), a chain of six hospitals throughout the country, providing free eye care treatment including cornea replacement to over one million patients free of cost annually; THE KIDNEY CENTRE (TKC), which provides free medical treatment including dialysis to poor and needy patients; KARVAN-E-HAYAT, one of the only mental healthcare facilities in Karachi. In education, we support BEHBUD ASSOCIATION, which supports girls’ schooling; HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION PROGRAMME and THE BOOK GROUP, which provides quality textbooks for underresourced schools We also support ‘The SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES’ in Pakistan, which provide home and education to destitute children. A Shell House by the name of ‘Ashiana’ at the SOS Villages in Karachi stands as a testament to our dedication to this cause. In our efforts for the conservation of heritage, we support a number of have been neglected despite being declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Among these, is the magnificent ROHTAS FORT, built by the Emperor Sher Shah Suri in the 15th century. We are proud to be the only corporate entity, which is currently engaged in supporting this particular project. We have also been one of the key contributors in the restoration and development of the MOHATTA PALACE MUSEUM- a key heritage site in Karachi, having a long association with the father on the nation. TAMEER is another significant part of Shell Pakistan’s social investment program. It is an entrepreneurship development program, focused on promotion of entrepreneurship amongst the youth by developing their skills. Launched in January 2003, Tameer is a public service program run under the name of Shell LiveWire by Shell Foundation, globally. Reaching out to over 10,000 people, it has met with spectacular success & is being cited as a best practice for the region.

Road Safety Initiatives

Safar Bakhair (Road Safety) Program Driver Training & Attitude/Behaviour Improvement Journey Management System Haulier/Contractor Professionalism Shell Pakistan has always placed great importance on the health, safety and environment aspect of the society it does business in. Safety is our first priority, and we base our policies on the belief that all accidents are preventable. Safar Bakhair (Road Safety) Program

Shell Pakistan is committed to addressing the issues of poor road and safety conditions in Pakistan. Our pioneering efforts in improving safety standards are reflected in the 'Road Safety Program'.

Driver Training & Attitude/Behaviour Improvement Due to high driver's turnover (30%) Shell has trained over 10,000 drivers in the past 7 years in Defensive Driving techniques. Driver training courses are regularly held at all main installations coverage & frequency has been enhanced by adding a Mobile Training Bus to cover drivers operating in remote locations. The mobile training Bus was introduced in mid-2001 and since then more than 3000 drivers have been trained at remote locations. A basic medical examination of the drivers is also an integral part of the Defensive Driving training. As part of the eyesight-screening programme more than 2000 drivers have been screened out of which about 300 drivers have been supplied with prescription glasses. As part of behaviour change programme for the drivers a "Positive mind Set Change Training" has been developed by engaging Professional Psychologists which is focused on behaviour modification & mind set change. This training module has been merged with the conventional Defensive Driving Course. In order to further strengthen the message conveyed through the training courses, monthly HSE Tips are issued to drivers on the importance of safety.

Journey Management System Recognising Driver Fatigue being one of the key issue four Mid-Way Rest Stations after every 400 Kms, have been developed on the main highways. These mid-way rest stations are equipped with basic amenities such as clean drinking water, hygienic food, basic bedding and clean toilets. There are recreational and training facilities also made available for entertainment and ongoing training. Route Hazard Maps have been developed to establish major black spots on main Tank Lorry Routes and a system of communication to the drivers has been established to effectively manage road hazards. Concept of "Friends of Drivers" (FOD's) has been introduced to promote on-road counselling to drivers. Based on their performance these FOD's give out positive as well as negative points to the drivers League System.

Haulier/Contractor Professionalism This is a two year project to achieve compliance with Shell haulier HSSE Standards in line with seven core areas and supporting areas of Professionalisation. The objective is to impart relevant training in these seven core areas and prepare their individual organisation to manage their respective RT-HSSE in line with Shell Group standards. There is immense enthusiasm and participation being demonstrated by the hauliers and the exhibits show their on-the-job training which Shell is currently facilitating during next 24 months. The introduction of International Standard ADR Vehicles has opened a new era in the vehicle standards in Pakistan. It's a big change from past when predominantly vehicles with wooden cabins were being used. Shell has played the leadership role in developing new vehicle standards for petroleum carrying cargoes. These draft standards are currently being finalised before forwarding them to the newly established autonomous industry body, namely OGRA (Oil & Gas Regulatory Authority) for their enactment.

Farooq Rahmatullah, Chairman & Managing director Shell Pakistan Limited, writes about the evolution of Shell in Pakistan and the present and future challenges for Shell Oil Products in Pakistan’s volatile business and political environment. A hundred years on…. As Shell Pakistan approaches its 10th anniversary next year, there will be many reflections on past achievements and future aspirations. But a look back at the past goes further than 10 years. In fact, the Shell brand name enjoys a 100-year history in this part of the world, dating back to 1899 when Asiatic Petroleum, the far eastern marketing arm of two companies: Shell Transport Company and Royal Dutch Petroleum Company, began importing kerosene oil from Azerbaijan into the subcontinent. Even today, the legacy of the past is visible in a storage tank carrying the date – 1898. Undoubtedly, it is a company, or rather a presence that has evolved - from the days of Burmah Shell Oil Storage Distribution in 1928 to the post independence Burmah Shell Oil Distribution Company of Pakistan in 1947 which went on to become Pakistan Burmah Shell (PBS) during the nationalist years of the 1970s. And finally, in 1993, as economic liberalisation began to take root and the Burmah divested from PBS, Shell Petroleum stepped into raise its stake to 51%. The last two years have seen the Shell Petroleum Company successively increasing its share, with the Group now having a 76% stake in Shell Pakistan Ltd (SPL). At Shell Pakistan, we see this as an expression of confidence. Evolution and transformation…. The transition into a fully integrated company was an experience fraught with growing pains as well

as exciting new directions. As a witness to some of those moments, or as I call them, the transformative milestones, I can only add that it took vision and commitment on the part of the management and every employee to break away from the old ways, adopting new styles of doing business, adapting to new thinking, and yet retaining the best practices of the old company. Today Shell Pakistan Limited is the second largest Oil Marketing Company in Pakistan with an overall market share of approximately 20% for all petroleum products. Other major players include Pakistan State Oil and Caltex. With a turnover exceeding USD 1 billion and sales of 3.7 million tonnes of products, it is a company that has demonstrated the ability and the drive for sustainable success. Today a dynamic, young workforce of men and women determine the future of the company. Currently 49 SPL staff is working on secondments throughout the Group. For Shell Pakistan and for the country itself, this is an unrivalled achievement and one that gives me great pride. Change has also come with the increasing number of women entering the workforce at Shell Pakistan, taking on leadership roles and challenging positions hitherto only held by men - an encouraging sign towards building a diverse, inclusive company. This year saw the first Pakistani woman on the Board; two women on the management team, the first female auditor and many more women choosing Shell as an employer of first choice. In a traditionally male dominated industry and moreover, in a male dominated society, these are giant leaps forward. Staying the course, growing the business… 2002 has been an exciting and remarkable year for us, more so in light of the volatile events of last year and the internal upheavals resulting from the international situation, border tensions and political transition from a military government towards democratic change. Despite instability and few setbacks principally in the aviation business, Shell Pakistan performed robustly, steering its course through troubled economic and political waters. From a NIAT (Shell Share) of USD 8.1million and a ROACE of 12.1% in 2001, NIAT for YTD-Oct. 2002 has already crossed the USD 16 million mark and ROACE stands at 18%. Increase in retail fuel margins and high lubricant sales growth were contributing factors to this healthy uplift. Shell Pakistan also continued to enjoy the second highest brand share of preference in SOPE. In the last two years, deregulation of the downstream oil industry of Pakistan has dominated our attention in many ways. Shell Pakistan has been a leading player in engaging stakeholders, sharing the model for deregulation and working towards harnessing gains for the industry and for the consumer. Although lubricants were deregulated in 1993, the first step towards relaxation of controls on main fuels was the complete deregulation of furnace oil in July 2000. Since then, further controls have been eased which includes pricing of all products and deregulation of AGO imports. Despite deregulation, the retail fuel margins are among the lowest in the region. Until 2002 they were fixed at 2% and since March 2002 they have been increased to 3.5% - a gain made possible due to the concerted efforts of the downstream oil industry led by Shell Pakistan. Our presence is endorsed with a RVI network consisting of 550 sites across the country taking the overall number of retail sites to more than 1200 (including the PBS legacy network). To date, 48 CNG projects have been commissioned on our Network, contributing to the promotion of cleaner fuels and increased profitability of the company. For Retail, the YTD NIAT is $ 7.3 million, which I

might add has already exceeded its full year target. On the commercial front, the overall January -October 2002 volumes and C2 for lubricants are 13% and 30% higher than the same period last year. The commercial business is at the forefront of delivering value to a diverse customer base which includes some of the largest power plants in the country, over 500 textiles units, as well as major operators in the sugar and packaging sector. Making safety our business Safety remained the top priority for Retail. In a first-of-its-kind initiative, which aims at improving safety standards at retail sites, the Safety Champion program was introduced. The Safety Champions on at least two different occasions saved lives of people by helping out in accidents outside the forecourt. This initiative was recognised as the Best Practice across the zone and received SOPE President’s Award in 2001. Shell Pakistan faces one of the highest road exposures across the Shell World, with an exposure of almost 172 million kilometres of road network. As road safety is a critical business and reputation issue, SPL has a zealous commitment to increasing road safety at the operational level and concern for road safety has also been extended to include the community through public road safety programs. Some of the innovative programs and initiatives include:

leadership commitment for road safety at all levels in order to achieve zero tolerance in fatalities. Road safety features at the top of the agenda in staff communication meetings at countrywide locations with the personal involvement of the Country Chair. Helping People Build a Better World…. In Pakistan, Shell is strongly commitment to Sustainable Development as a way to meet the needs and expectations of society and contribute to the economic and social development of Pakistan. Several initiatives in the past year highlight Shell Pakistan’s commitment to health, safety as well as environmental and social development. Following is a glance at some of the highlights of 2002: Shell Retail won the business for re-fuelling the first CNG buses in Pakistan. The bus company plans to operate 300 dual fuel buses in Karachi (the largest city in Pakistan and among the fastest

growing cities in the world) and will be a milestone towards promoting cleaner fuels in the public transport sector. The company is the only OMC in Pakistan to have initiated a tier-3 marine oil spill response exercise in active collaboration with the local authorities. Over 15000 retail attendants, many of them with little or nor formal schooling, are improving their reading and writing skills through the Elementary Education Programme. A robust Social Investment programme covering over 25 projects in the areas of health, education, community welfare, heritage and environment. Specific areas have included female education, AIDS awareness, leprosy eradication, eye disease, a Shell sponsored home for orphans, restoration of two key national heritage sites, human rights education and many other initiatives for community healthcare and education. Looking ahead… With the Pakistani economy poised for a turnaround and an agri-based economy that relies heavily on AGO, making gains and inroads into the AGO market promises significant and sustainable growth, especially in the agricultural / rural markets. CVPs are being developed to promote not only AGO sales but also to have lubricants tied in with them. The optimisation of cross – business resources is the need of the day and it is an approach that will give enhanced value for money. Such cross-functional linkage is also being evaluated to leverage LPG distribution network for utilising Retail and Commercial arrangements. Pakistan is a country, which is undergoing paradigm shifts in terms of opportunities arising from the liberalisation and deregulation policies of the government. The country is exhibiting non-OP opportunities such as gas utilities' privatisation, the prospect of gas import pipelines, and privatisation of organisations in the upstream sector. In light of these trends, Shell Pakistan is currently involved in the development of the South Asia Gas demand and supply database under the auspices of Shell Gas & Power. This database will help in assessing the opportunities throughout the South Asian region. Furthermore, owing to Pakistan’ s strategic geographical location Shell Pakistan has been selected by the CMD as the vehicle for NME in Afghanistan. This NME will establish Shell brand presence by introducing high quality fuels and lubricants in Afghanistan. And last but not least, as we grow the business in many profitable directions and seek innovation based success, the principles and values of Shell continue to provide the anchor for all our activities. We believe our competitive differentiation will not only be based on delivering value but espousing and acting on values
