Shell promotes Australia head to run global conventional oil, gas unit

October 08/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Royal Dutch Shell has promoted its current Australia chief, Zoe Yujnovich, to the role of executive vice president for conventional oil and gas from Jan. 1, based in the groups headquarters in The Hague, reported Reuters with reference to Shell Australia's statement.

In her new role, Yujnovich will report to Shells upstream director and be responsible for delivering growth across 18 countries, including Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Oman, the UK and Iraq.

Yujnovich, an Australian, joined Shell in Canada in 2014 from the mining industry and since February 2017 has run its Australian business, which accounts for about a quarter of the groups invested capital.

She oversaw the completion of Shells first floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, Prelude, which finally shipped its first LNG cargo in June this year after overcoming a number of start-up problems.

The current head of eastern Australian operations, Tony Nunan, has been promoted to succeed Yujnovich as country chair for Australia, Shell Australia said.

"(Australia) is integral to our global strategy to lead in LNG and move into power to provide more and cleaner energy ... in the decades ahead," Yujnovich said in a statement.

As MRC informed before, operations were stable on 13 September at Royal Dutch Shell Plcs 340,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) joint-venture refinery in Deer Park, Texas, after the upper Houston Ship Channel was closed by protesters from Greenpeace USA. The Deer Park refinery is a 50-50 joint-venture between Shell and Mexicos national oil company Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex). Shell is the managing partner of the joint-venture. Shell has three crackers at Deer Park site with a combined ethylene capacity of 1,67 mln per year and petrochemical plants.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polyprolypele (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,255,800 tonnes in the first seven months of 2019, up by 9% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. At the same time, the estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 796,120 tonnes in January-July 2019, up by 11% year on year. Shipments of PP block copolymer and homopolymer PP increased.

Royal Dutch Shell plc is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands and with its registered office in London, United Kingdom. It is the biggest company in the world in terms of revenue and one of the six oil and gas "supermajors". Shell is vertically integrated and is active in every area of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production, refining, distribution and marketing, petrochemicals, power generation and trading.
