Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda, a subsidiary of Shell plc, informs that it completed the sale of its lubricants division in Brazil to Raízen SA, after approval by regulatory bodies.

As of May 1, 2022, the lubricant plant in Ilha do Governador, in Rio de Janeiro, the oil-based plant in Campos Elíseos, in Duque de Caxias (RJ), the Shell Marine lubricants division and the businesses of supply and distribution of lubricants in the country are passed to Raízen.

The longstanding partnership between Shell and Raízen includes the retail, aviation and fuel distribution portfolios. The integration of the lubricants division into the joint venture will generate synergies between the two companies and ensure a supply of lubricants and fuels with more opportunities for decarbonization.
