Shell kerosene first reached the country in 1897. Business then largely involved the importation and sale of kerosene mainly for household use in Manila and outlying areas.

By 1940,a sizeable range of Shell products was being sold to more areas in the Philippines through installations and depots set up in strategic points throughout the country.

In 1960, Shell built its first crude refinery in Tabangao, Batangas, which commenced operations in 1962. This made Shell a complete downstream business engaged not only in trading, transport and distribution, but also in the manufacture and refining of petroleum products.

In the late 1970s, Shell began its involvement in upstream activities (oil and gas exploration and production) to reduce the country’s dependence on imported oil.

In 1986, Pilipinas Shell took over majority ownership of Philippine Petroleum Corporation, the country’s only lube oil refinery.
