Energy Transfer develops and operates the infrastructure that moves America’s energy. We are proud to have one of America’s most diversified energy portfolios, with assets reaching coast-to-coast, covering 38 states. What began as a small intrastate natural gas pipeline operator with roughly 200 miles of natural gas pipelines in 1996, is now one of the country’s largest and most diversified energy partnerships with approximately 86,000 miles of pipeline with nearly 10,000 employees who facilitate the gathering, treating, processing and transporting of natural gas, natural gas liquids, refined products and crude oil.

Shell has been a pioneer in liquefied natural gas (LNG) for more than 50 years. In Arzew, Algeria, the first commercial LNG liquefaction plant was delivered in 1964 with Shell involvement, and we shipped the first commercial cargo from Algeria to the UK in the same year, starting today’s global trade. We have continued to innovate and improve the technology behind LNG, and to find ways to make more LNG available where it is needed around the world. For example, we are building Prelude FLNG, the world’s largest floating LNG production facility.
LNG continues to be the fastest-growing gas supply source, with an expected compound annual growth rate of 4% a year between now and 2035. We expect growth in LNG demand to continue around the world, led by Asia and Europe.
Shell is involved at every stage of the LNG value chain: finding the fields and extracting gas, liquefying gas and shipping it, then turning the LNG back into gas and distributing it to customers. Shell is one of the world’s largest LNG shipping operators, managing and operating more than 40 carriers and has 50 on time-charter. Combined, these approximately 90 LNG carriers is around 20% of the global LNG shipping fleet. Our trading operation buys and sells LNG to and from Shell, its partners and third parties, helping to meet customers' long-term energy needs and respond flexibly to short-term changes in demand.
Today Shell has LNG supply projects either in operation or under construction in seven countries. We also have a major interest in one regasification plant in Hazira in India, and long-term access to capacity in several others in Europe, the Middle East and North America.
