Shell’s corporate, along with the 800 employees, will be moving to the River District. The headquarters is currently located on Poydras Street. The project should be completed by late 2024 or early 2025.
Employees are overjoyed with the decision due to the fact that many energy companies have been moving to Texas. “This is an exciting announcement that further solidifies the long-standing and successful relationship between Louisiana and Shell. This is a significant investment in the city and our state, and I’m grateful to everyone involved in turning this concept into reality,” said Governor John Bel Edwards.
“We have been an integral part of the community and the working coast….and we are committing to stay here with a new building,” said Colette Hirstius, Senior VP of Shell’s Gulf of Mexico location.
