Shell in particular has a rich history in Indonesia dating to the discovery of crude oil in Sumatra over 100 years ago, which led to the formation of Shell Transport and Royal Dutch Petroleum Co. Ltd., which later became known as Shell. Shell’s innovation focus today includes a technical center in Indonesia that targets product development and support. Shell spent over $1 billion on research and development in 2011 in order to develop new technologies for clean and efficient energy.
