Where you fit in

One of Shell’s strategic ambitions is to thrive through the energy transition. As we are starting to experience and understand the effects of that transition, opportunities and challenges present themselves. Shell aims grow competitiveness whilst ensuring regulatory compliance. For that reason, Downstream and New Energies are looking at a number of new technologies and value chains that will enable Shell to meet its ambition.

Using waste oils and fats, and converting them to drop-in fuel components via hydro-treating technology, is a promising route to supply low carbon fuels throughout the 2020’s.

What’s the role?

The Hydro-treated Vegetable Oil (HVO) Feedstock Opportunity Manager NA will report into Shell’s North American Trading & Supply business, and work closely with the Biodiesel Trade Desk, New Energies and Projects & Technologies to develop a variety of 3rd party and in-house HVO (Hydro-treated Vegetable Oil) opportunities in North America.

The HVO Feedstock Opportunity Manager NA will work on the integrated project teams with a specific focus to:

  • Support the development of Hydro-treated Vegetable Oil (HVO) projects through knowledge on HVO asset deployment, feedstock supply chains, feedstock specifications, logistics, blending and storage requirements

  • Work with the technology team to develop integrated optimization strategies, and articulating how feedstock quality impacts plant performance and end-to-end margin.

  • Develop and execute pre-treatment strategies (both in house and 3rd party) to ensure efficient end-to-end operation of the integrated value chai

  • Supports the team with an understanding of North American and European regulations, sustainability issues, and pricing impacts

Key accountabilities:

  • Scope out and develop long term structural opportunities for feedstock supply in coordination with Shell feedstock traders, with a particular focus on sustainable low carbon feedstocks for supply to HVO assets.

  • Support the development of optimized in-house and/or 3rd party opportunities, working closely with technology teams to optimize across the asset design / feedstock supply interface.

  • Develop logistics supply chains for feedstock supply.

  • Support HVO projects with knowledge and experience of regulations, sustainability criteria, competitive landscape and pricing issues in coordination with the Regulatory Compliance Lead.

  • Work closely with trading colleagues to understand the details of North American and European regulations, the impact on supply and demand balances, and develop strategies for optimal supply.

  • Work with the Biofuel trading desks to optimize the product slate of in-house and/or 3rd party assets, in order to generate maximum end to end margin.

  • Maintain a strong Compliance culture and adhere to Shell Business Principles
