The Royal Dutch Shell Group was created in February 1907 when the Royal Dutch Petroleum Company and the “Shell” Transport and Trading Company Ltd of the United Kingdom merged their operation - a move largely driven by the need to compete globally with the then dominant American petroleum company, John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil.
The “Shell” Transport and Trading Company (the quotation marks were part of the legal name) was a British company, founded in 1897 by Marcus Samuel and his brother Samuel Samuel
Their father had owned a company, importing and selling sea-shells, after which the company “Shell” took its name. In 1925, he became 1st Viscount Bearsted. Initially the Company commissioned eight oil tankers for the purposes of transporting oil.
In 1919, Shell took control of the Mexican Eagle Petroleum Company and in 1921 formed Shell-Mex Limited which marketed products under the “Shell” and “Eagle” brands in the United Kingdom.
In 1932, partly in response to the difficult economic conditions of the times, Shell-Mex merged its UK marketing operations with those of British Petroleum to create Shell-Mex and BP Ltd, a company that traded until the brands separated in 1975.
