Shell is ditching its SA downstream business after more than 120 years

Shell has confirmed plans to exit South Africa after more than 120 years of operation.

In a statement issued on Monday afternoon, the oil major said it had decided to divest its majority shareholding from a local South African downstream unit following a comprehensive review of its downstream and renewables businesses across all regions.

The downstream business has traditionally encompassed refining, transporting and selling fuel to customers. Shell has around 700 fuel service stations in South Africa.
