THE HAGUE, The Netherlands,  March 25, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Today,  AT&T*
announced that Shell has renewed the agreement that five years ago established 
AT&T as Shell's global provider  of secure, advanced communications and 
mobility solutions.  The contract has been renewed for another five years and
the agreement with Shell remains the largest retail communications services
contract signed by AT&T with a company headquartered outside  the United States.

AT&T data services are available in countries that represent 99 percent of the
world's economy, providing multinational businesses, like Shell, with access to
AT&T's advanced  networking services  to support their business around the
globe.  These strategic services are critical for a global enterprise and its
ability to operate better and more efficiently in both its existing markets,
along with those targeted for expansion in the years ahead.  For Shell, many of
their locations needing networking services are in harsh or inaccessible

Given the explosive growth in mobile data usage on smartphones, tablets and
other connected devices over the last five years, AT&T is also focused on
supporting clients with  advanced mobility  solutions around the world.  Using 
AT&T's Global Mobile Management service, AT&T is managing mobile voice and data
for Shell users that are provided through other mobile operators around the
world, as well as providing Wi-Fi based solutions to help control costs with
mobile devices such as tablets and laptops.  

In addition, AT&T is delivering wide area and local area networks,  Unified
Communications  technology, Internet-based  voice services, and  network- and
premise- based security solutions.   

"It's been enormously rewarding to work with Shell, which operates in a very
dynamic and highly globalized industry," said  Mark Shine, AT&T Senior Vice
President.  "By providing global networking solutions accessible from just about
every corner of the planet, AT&T is delivering what it does best, so that Shell
can focus on its core business - providing energy products and solutions for
consumers and businesses around the world.  And with the world of business now
going mobile, we know we can deliver an even higher level of value to them."
