Shell Subsidiaries, Coral Energy Holding, L.P. and Coral Energy Canada Inc. Renamed as Shell Energy North America
HOUSTON, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Dutch Shell plc (Shell) today announced that, effective October 1, 2007, its wholly owned subsidiary, Coral Energy Holding, L.P., will change its name to Shell Energy North America (US), L.P. and Coral Energy Canada Inc. will change its name to Shell Energy North America (Canada) Inc. Both companies will do business as Shell Energy North America in their respective countries. All other Coral Energy companies -- including but not limited to Coral Energy Resources, L.P.; Coral Power, L.L.C.; and Coral Energy Management, LLC -- will continue to operate as subsidiaries of Shell Energy North America (US), L.P. All existing contracts written under the Coral Energy Holding, L.P. and Coral Energy Canada Inc. company names will be unaffected by the name change and, in the U.S., all Coral Energy subsidiaries will continue operation as subsidiaries of Shell Energy North America (US), L.P. The new names clearly identify the companies as subsidiaries of Shell, one of the world's most recognized and trusted brands. "Approximately two years ago, Shell became the sole owner of Coral Energy. Changing our name was a natural progression from the buyout to more clearly illustrate our relationship to Shell and the Shell brand," said Mark Hanafin, president and chief executive officer of Shell Energy North America. "Our companies have always operated according to Shell's recognized business principles and operational excellence, and have accessed Shell's vast resources and knowledge pool to satisfy customers' needs since their inception in the mid-90s. However, we wanted to make sure it was clear to everyone that there was a direct connection," said Hanafin. As Shell Energy North America, the company will continue serving its customers, including commercial and industrial users, major retailers, local gas distribution companies, utilities, independent power producers, retail energy aggregators and oil and gas companies, by providing comprehensive energy solutions. Its success can be linked to its ongoing ability to provide customers with a diverse network of supply supported by a host of flexible and integrated marketing, trading, risk management and asset management tools and services. Headquartered in Houston with regional offices throughout the U.S. and Canada, Coral Energy Holding, L.P., which will become Shell Energy North America effective October 1, 2007, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc (Shell) and operates throughout North America as an integral part of the Shell global trading network. A leader in North American gas and power marketing, the company trades and markets natural gas, wholesale power and risk management products with counterparties and customers throughout the region. As a part of Shell, Coral Energy Holding, L.P. (to be renamed Shell Energy North America effective October 1, 2007) leverages Shell's resources, global reach, employee expertise and financial strength to offer integrated and custom solutions to a variety of customers, including large commercial and industrial users, local gas distribution companies, electric utilities, independent power producers, energy aggregators, and oil and gas producers. Shell Oil Company, including its consolidated companies and its share in equity companies, is one of America's leading oil and natural gas producers, natural gas marketers, gasoline marketers and petrochemical manufacturers. Shell, a leading oil and gas producer in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, is a recognized pioneer in oil and gas exploration and production technology.
