Refining quality products everyday

In these facilities, Motiva stores and distributes gasoline and diesel to Shell-branded retail stations, stores refined products for third-party customers, and sells unbranded motor fuels to third-party resellers, commercial customers and other end users. Motiva is also a leading destination terminal provider for ethanol suppliers along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.

Marketing superior products to customers

Over recent years Motiva has gained significant market share and established the Shell brand as the number one or two brand in 13 of the states in which the company operates. In addition, Motiva has ownership stakes in four wholesale joint ventures with over 500 convenience stores.
