May 28, 2022
Muscat -To showcase Shell’s latest developments, Shell Oman conducted the Shell Technology Seminar 2022 that took place in both Muscat and Salalah and saw in attendance business customers, partners, and leading regional experts from Shell. The event, which was dedicated to showcasing Shell’s extensive range of lubricant solutions, also introduced guests to Shell’s newly rolled out Lube Advisor.
Responding to the increased reliance on remote technological solutions, Shell’s Lube Advisor is a breakthrough in modern technology. A wearable gadget, it supports customers in optimizing their lubricant operations by providing remote consultations. With a keen focus on safety, the Lube Advisor also provides real-time monitoring of field technicians while offering them audio-visual assistance when performing maintenance services. The seminar announced that Shell’s customers in Oman and the Middle East can now access the Lube Advisor to enhance the safety of workers, increase on-ground efficiency, and boost overall operational decision-making.
Dedicated to maximising equipment efficiency by reducing downtime and improving efficiency, the seminar also highlighted the various applications of Shell’s diverse range of lubricants and how the improved technology could save time, money, and even lives.
Commenting on the company’s take on innovation in the Lubricants sector, Mr. Mahmoud Al Abri, Commercial Lubricants - General Manager, Shell Oman, said, “As a local company with a global brand, Shell Oman is committed to utilizing our access to global know-how and share knowledge with our customers and partners, and the Shell Technology Seminar is an ideal platform for us to connect, engage and learn more especially in the presence of the Shell Lubricants experts and subject matter experts.”
Shell Oman is committed to working in line with the directions and priorities of Oman Vision 2040 and creating In-country value. This shows evidently in the recognition of the growing demand for sustainable products amongst consumers, where the company has been able to leverage innovation to enhance its product portfolio with a variety of products made in Shell Oman’s ISO-certified lubricant plant at Mina Al Fahal. These include the Carbon Neutral Shell Helix range of lubricants, among others.
The products are not only being supplied to the local market but also exported to a number of GCC countries and regional markets, offering added benefits of improved engine performance and better fuel efficiency.

Additional risk factors that may affect future results are contained in Shell plc’s Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2021 (available at www.shell.com/investor and www.sec.gov). These risk factors also expressly qualify all forward-looking statements contained in this announcement and should be considered by the reader. Each forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date of this announcement, 28 May 2022 Neither Shell plc nor any of its subsidiaries undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or other information. In light of these risks, results could differ materially from those stated, implied or inferred from the forward-looking statements contained in this announcement.
Also, in this announcement we may refer to Shell’s “Net Carbon Footprint” or “Net Carbon Intensity”, which include Shell’s carbon emissions from the production of our energy products, our suppliers’ carbon emissions in supplying energy for that production and our customers’ carbon emissions associated with their use of the energy products we sell. Shell only controls its own emissions. The use of the term Shell’s “Net Carbon Footprint” or “Net Carbon Intensity” are for convenience only and not intended to suggest these emissions are those of Shell plc or its subsidiaries.
Shell’s operating plan, outlook and budgets are forecasted for a ten-year period and are updated every year. They reflect the current economic environment and what we can reasonably expect to see over the next ten years. Accordingly, they reflect our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Net Carbon Footprint (NCF) targets over the next ten years. However, Shell’s operating plans cannot reflect our 2050 net-zero emissions target and 2035 NCF target, as these targets are currently outside our planning period. In the future, as society moves towards net-zero emissions, we expect Shell’s operating plans to reflect this movement. However, if society is not net zero in 2050, as of today, there would be significant risk that Shell may not meet this target.
