The Company

Shell Chemicals, a part of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group, is one of the largest petrochemical companies in the world, with a multi-billion dollar annual turnover. Shell Chemicals employees carry out operations in 37 countries and four continents. The company produces the petrochemical building blocks used in everything from cars to computers.

The Challenge

New certifi cation requirements posed by Title V regulations and increased Group reporting requirements led many of Shell’s U.S. EH&S managers to conclude that it was time to update the company’s procedures and implement a new system for environmental information management. Shell Chemicals also wanted to implement a system that was flexible enough that it could potentially be adopted by Shell’s entire global operations. And finally: the company wanted a system that could be used by everyone from plant operators to top management, and that could help minimize the amount of manual labor spent on data collection, data processing, and the creation of regulatory reports.

The Solution

To address these issues, in 2001 Shell Chemicals implemented opsEnvironmental. The software is currently used in the company’s North American facilities to manage air, water, and waste data. opsEnvironmental has brought significant benefits to Shell Chemicals, greatly reducing the amount of manual labor needed for reporting and freeing up staff resources to work on higher value tasks.
