Vivo Energy – Company Background

What is Vivo Energy?

Vivo Energy is a company formed by a partnership between Shell, Vitol and Helios Investment Partners. We are a marketing business and the name behind Shell’s customer-facing brand in Africa.


Shell is one of the world’s most respected energy businesses and brings to the Vivo Energy partnership vast experience, a unique depth and breadth of resources and a globally recognized brand name.


Vitol is one of the world’s largest physical energy traders, combining global reach and local expertise to identify and optimize opportunities wherever in the world they do business. Vitol succeeds by thinking fast, acting decisively and getting things done.

Helios Investment Partners

Helios Investment Partners is an independent private investment business with an unrivalled understanding of, and unique focus on, the African marketplace. Founded and managed by Africans, Helios has helped create and grow many successful businesses across the continent.

Shell remains the overarching customer-facing brand and the name on our fuels and lubricants.

Why ‘Vivo’? Because the word means life, vitality and vigour – key qualities the new brand will bring to our operations across Africa. The colours of our logo and graphic device, which we call ‘World of Energy’, symbolize the vibrant, colourful, passionate spirit of Africa.
