Shell leaves One Shell Plaza HQ after 45 years
By Sebastian Herrera: December 7, 2016
In the coming months, roughly 3,400 Shell Oil Co. employees will be moving from the oil giant’s downtown headquarters into its Energy Corridor campus as Shell looks to eventually house all of its Houston-based employees on the west side.
The move is indicative of an energy industry downturn in Houston that has led oil companies to slash thousands of jobs and consolidate office space to meditate costs.
Shell will leave its One Shell Plaza headquarters, a 50-story skyscraper, after 45 years.
