Spotlight on Shell company achievements


James Kon

Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sdn Bhd (BSP) recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Champion oilfield, which produced its first oil from the CP-4 well in March 1972.

Since then, production from the oilfield has built a solid foundation for BSP and remains a contributor to the Sultanate’s oil and gas production and is expected to supply the country for decades.

So said Shell Country Chair in Brunei Darussalam and BSP Managing Director Agnete Johnsgaard-Lewis at the Brunei Shell Joint Venture (BSJV) Companies Appreciation Night for Long-time Employees at Rizqun International Hotel Saturday.

She said that BSP continues to invest in the development of skills and resources essential for the sustainable development of Brunei and that 2022 has been a successful year for the company with many achievements.

Among the achievements, seven exemplary students received the BSJV scholarship; collaboration with SkillsHub through the Brunei Asia Pacific Shell Learning Hub (BAPSLH) to improve the skills of the local workforce and job seekers; launch of the Brunei Innovation Lab in partnership with Shell LiveWIRE Brunei and Darussalam Enterprise (DARe) to develop the Sultanate’s digital technology ecosystem; and collaborating with Green Brunei on environmental initiatives to support Brunei Darussalam’s National Climate Change Policy (BNCCP).

Johnsgaard-Lewis also revealed that Brunei LNG Sdn Bhd will celebrate the 50th anniversary of first cargo delivery in December.

As the world’s oldest liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant, Brunei LNG continues to create value for Brunei while providing jobs and nurturing local talent. A notable example is a flagship social investment program called EmployAbility created this year with an apprenticeship pilot program.

She said Brunei LNG continues to transform the way it operates as a business by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, making its plant more energy efficient and integrating sustainability into its business strategy.

In 2021, Brunei LNG delivered its first cargo of carbon neutral LNG. Being the first in Southeast Asia, this is an important milestone for Brunei LNG as an energy transition partner for Brunei, ASEAN and globally.

For Brunei Shell Marketing Company Sdn Bhd (BSM), safety is a top priority. She launched the fourth “Fill Safe, Feel Safe” safety awareness campaign to provide a safe environment for customers and employees at Shell service stations.

BSM also continues to serve the country by ensuring a continuous supply of fuel and expanding its network.

Over the past two years, two Shell retail stations have opened and another will open later this year in Temburong district.

She said BSM will innovate and build a sustainable future by diversifying into non-fuel retail to offer products and services beyond oil and gas.

Johnsgaard-Lewis also commended the efforts and leadership of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of the Government of Brunei Darussalam to lead the nation towards recovery.
