To celebrate Shell’s 120 years in Singapore, a video was made to commemorate milestones and achievements with staff, partners, customers and other stakeholders.
The director of RMBR, Professor Peter Ng, was featured in the video because of the Shell Research Fellowship which provides a platform for the museum to document Singapore’s biodiversity.

Shell Celebrates 120 years in Singapore (1891-2011)
From its manufacturing plants on Bukom and Jurong islands to its international trading and treasury operations, Singapore is an important hub for the Shell Group’s businesses in the region including Upstream International Asia and Global Commercials.
Shell started operations in Singapore in 1891 with the set up of its first oil storage installation on Pulau Bukom. Being a company of firsts, we continued our lead by establishing Singapore’s first oil refinery in 1961 in Bukom. Today, we are one of the key players in the country’s oil and petrochemicals industry, and one of the top foreign investors in Singapore.
She’lls success in Singapore can be seen in tandem with Singapore’s own growth and development. Indeed our business activities have evolved in close parallel with the changing economic and social landscape of the country. We are proud of our long and rich heritage in the country.
As 2011 unfolds and we commemorate the 120-year milestone through different activites, we invite you to read our regular feature stories on the events, and the interesting and fond memories as recounted by both our former and current employees.
We also wish to acknowledge that we are here, successful and strong, because of the continued support, encouragement and the many contributions of our people, partners and customers, past and present. We are here to be the most competitive and innovative energy company. We are here to shape our future today.
