Place of Origin

Maker Shell

Maker Details Shell is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company headquartered in the Netherlands and incorporated in the United Kingdom. The Royal Dutch Shell Group was created in February 1907 through the amalgamation of two rival companies - Royal Dutch Petroleum Company and the "Shell" Transport and Trading Company Ltd of the United Kingdom. It was a move largely driven by the need to compete globally with Standard Oil.
