Shell Singapore has reached an agreement to sell its Energy and Chemicals Park in Singapore to CAPGC, a joint venture company between Chandra Asri Capital and Glencore Asian Holdings. The transaction will transfer all of Shell’s interest in Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Singapore to CAPGC.

The Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Singapore comprises its integrated refining and chemicals assets on Pulau Bukom and Jurong Island. The Pulau Bukom assets include a 237,000 barrels-per-day refinery and a 1.1 million tonnes-a-year ethylene cracker. It was Singapore’s first refinery in 1961. Shell Jurong Island occupies more than 60 hectares on Jurong Island, and manufactures petrochemicals including ethylene oxide, ethoxylates, styrene monomer and propylene oxide. It is Shell’s largest petrochemical production and export centre in the Asia Pacific region.

‘This agreement marks a significant step in Shell’s ongoing efforts to high-grade our Chemicals and Products business, and is a testament to our commitment to deliver more value with less emissions, as outlined at our Capital Markets Day last year,‘ says Huibert Vigeveno, Shell’s Downstream, Renewable and Energy Solutions Director. ‘We are proud of our history at Bukom and Jurong Island and our contributions to the economic growth of Singapore in this sector in the past decades. Our commitment to Singapore remains steadfast and its importance as a regional hub for our marketing and trading business remains important. As Singapore continues to decarbonise, Shell looks forward to a continued partnership with the country, and with our customers in the region.’

Shell ran a competitive bid process to reach this milestone. Staff in Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Singapore will continue their employment with CAPGC under the new ownership, providing continuity for staff and contributing to ongoing operational reliability and safety.

Subject to regulatory approval, the transaction is expected to complete by the end of 2024.
