I joined Shell in 2015, having very little knowledge about oil & gas – so when I was told what my responsibilities were as a Commercial Analyst for Shell’s upstream projects in Indonesia, I was thrilled! I did the role as part of the Graduate Program, where I was a member of a team who’s advancing negotiations on a gas development project which enabled me to meet various government officials and saw my works sparked discussions in the industry nationwide. Now, I’m in an international assignment based in Singapore as Brunei Ventures Management Advisor where I oversee the governance of a LNG plant, vital for the economy of the nation – a proof how Shell supported my career aspirations as a senior commercial professional in upstream oil & gas in the long run.

Working in Shell is very fulfilling for me, where I do things I never thought I’d do this early in my career. I think the idiom “sky is the limit” is true in Shell!
