Shell station along Penang Road gets a beautiful makeover, 100 years of service!



Shell Malaysia has unveiled the new look of Shell Penang Road to commemorate one of its oldest stations that has been serving Penangites and the wider community, for generations since the 1920s. With ambitions to preserve Penang’s living heritage whilst maintaining an important connection to the past, Shell’s innovative restoration of its station represents the rich history and modern advancement.

Located at the corner of Jalan Penang and Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah in Georgetown, Shell Penang Road is proud of its enriching journey in serving the community through thick and thin, as exemplified by the station surviving World War II and witnessing Malaysia’s independence. Thanks to its location within the Buffer Zone of the Penang Heritage zone, an area popular with tourists for its rich historical context, Shell Penang Road is listed under the Penang Heritage directory, reflecting its significance as an important cultural landmark.

Shell is collaborating with Penang Global Tourism to elevate Shell Penang Road as a tourist landmark. The station can be found via a Google Map link here.

“Shell Penang Road has been a part of Penang’s colourful history and heritage for 100 years, and I am pleased that Shell continues to preserve the heritage of this station while innovating to cater to all of its customers’ needs. I hope that this latest addition to the Penang Heritage zone will encourage Malaysians to visit Penang and support local tourism and businesses,” said YB Yeoh Soon Hin, Penang State Executive Councillor.

While Shell strives to commemorate Penang’s beautiful colonial architecture as reflected in the station’s new look, it also embraces modernity with its sleek interior. The station, open from 6 A.M to 12 A.M. daily, offers modern comforts such as a clean rest stop for motorists and delicious local snacks as well as Shell V-Power 97, the fuel-saving FuelSave 95 as well as Diesel Euro 5.

“As we evolve to meet our customers’ dynamic demands and needs, it is important to remember our roots and hold on to our core values.  Shell Penang Road stands as a testament of Penang and Shell’s history in Malaysia, reflecting how far we have come together. This station truly reflects Shell’s commitment to continue providing the best for the communities that we operate in.” said Shell Mobility Malaysia and Singapore, General Manager, Seow Lee Ming.
