This is to inform the general public of the ongoing Internship Program at Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC). Interested candidates should please continue reading for more details. Shell started business in Nigeria in 1937 as Shell D’Arcy and was granted an exploration license. In 1956, Shell Nigeria discovered the first commercial oil field at Oloibiri in the Niger Delta and started oil exports in 1958. Prior to the discovery of oil, Nigeria like many other African countries strongly relied on agricultural exports to other countries to support its economy. Many Nigerians thought the developers were looking for palm oil. The Shell Petroleum Development Company(SPDC) is Nigeria’s oldest energy company, and has a long term and continuing commitment to the country, its people and the economy.
