Energy and petrochemical group Shell has selected Arcadis to provide global support services to its exploration and refinery operations. The deal includes a range of project and contract services, real estate and studies, to be conducted for Shell office locations across the globe.
Shell is one of the largest energy and petrochemical companies of the globe. The company is headquartered in The Hague, the Netherlands, with Royal Dutch Shell as its parent company. Globally, Shell operates in more than 70 countries and employs around 92,000 people.
To assist it with global support services, Shell recently signed a new enterprise framework agreement with engineering and consultancy firm Arcadis. The deal between the two is not new - Arcadis has been a preferred supplier for many years. “Our client relationship with Shell has developed over decades and is anchored in our ability to add value to the client’s business,” explains Stephanie Hottenhuis, Executive Board Member for Arcadis and responsible for Arcadis’ MultiNational Client programme.
As part of the agreement, Arcadis will provide Shell with project planning and costing, risk management services, quantity surveying, contract and procurement support, claims management and real estate portfolio management support, as well as time in motion studies for projects across the globe.
