In 1892, Shell joined the business of shipping by launching its first oil tanker, Murex. Transiting from Azerbaijan to Thailand, Murex contributed to a revolution in global trade by transporting oil in large tanks, rather than in thousands of barrels, to make fuel more affordable.

Since the Murex’s maiden voyage, Shell has grown to be one of the largest fleets of oil/chemical tankers and liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers in the world. These vessels play a vital role in the safe and secure delivery of energy, worldwide. Today, Shell’s fleet consists of of 6 oil/chemical tankers and over 40 LNG carriers.
