CP Specialist Production TT

The Role

Shell Trinidad and Tobago Limited (STTL) is strategic within the Upstream and Integrated Gas business for Shell due to the value it brings from an existing full gas value chain and the future growth opportunities that enable gas delivery to domestic contracts and to the LNG value chain in Trinidad & Tobago. Spend levels have increased and will be sustained to ensure delivery of the future gas strategy to meet contractual obligations. Realizing these ambitions is seen as critical in STTL transformation in years to come.

Supply chains are at the core of Shell’s competitiveness and Contracting & Procurement (C&P) plays an instrumental role in Shell achieving all its strategic ambitions. Globally we work with 29,000 suppliers, collaborate with all the businesses and functions across the Group, and handle around $40 billion third-party spend.
