Showa Shell Sekiyu Group's goal is to support its customers and society as an energy solutions provider supplying safe and sustainable energy, with Oil and Energy Solutions Business as its two main businesses.
● Oil Business
Through partnerships with the Shell Group and Saudi Aramco, which are major shareholders, we refine crude oil imported from around the world at Group refineries in Japan (Yokkaichi, Keihin, and Yamaguchi; crude oil processing capacity: 445,000 barrels/day), and sell to customers such products as gasoline and diesel oil mainly at about 3,200 (as of Dec 31, 2015) service stations (SS) and through other marketing channels in Japan. In addition, we sell oil products including industrial fuels, LPG, chemicals, lubricants, and bitumen, and utilize the Shell Group's global network to export oil products.
● Energy Solutions Business
