For over 125 years, SHV Energy has been delivering off-grid fuels around the world. Having already transitioned from coal to oil and from oil to LPG, we are now energised to develop a future with sustainable fuels.

As the drive to tackle climate change and to hit net-zero targets has risen, SHV Energy displayed vision by establishing us, Futuria Fuels - a dedicated business unit whose mission is to enable innovation that will accelerate the development and availability of sustainable fuels. Through collaboration, partnership, and investment, we will make this happen.

The result will be the scaling of on-purpose production of renewable liquid gas. This will allow us to drop in sustainable molecules in existing infrastructure and immediately reduce carbon emissions.
