Shell's power lady - Fortune India [cached]

Yasmine Hilton, chairperson, Shell India
Yasmine Hilton, the newly appointed chairperson of the Shell Companies in India, has a doctorate in this subject-a far cry from drilling for oil. Sitting in the Saffron Room of the Chambers at the recently renovated Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai, Hilton laughs at the question, and jokes that she joined Shell because a reply to her application to Mumbai's Tata Institute of Fundamental Research came too late. She was in Mumbai to help her parents adjust to a retired life, and wanted to work there. But since there was no reply for months, she says her father sent her back to Britain (where she had spent much of her life) "to earn a living". Although population genetics seems to suggest a field of study that has to do with people, it is actually a relatively new branch of genetics that studies the interaction of a population of genes in any organism. Shell, in the 1970s, had a research centre in Britain that focussed on agricultural research-crops, fertilisers, etc. Hilton applied for a job there in 1979, and got it. She had believed that "over time, I would get a chance to head their R&D centre". One year on, the Tata institute got back, accepting her application, but, she says, "I had already joined Shell... I had started a new career, a new life, and wanted to stick to it." Stick to it she has-for over three decades now. And this despite the fact that the research centre was shut three years after she joined. Already in the Shell system, Hilton had the opportunity of trying out various jobs. "That's the beauty of Shell," she says. Hilton will have to build on this relationship, something a section of analysts is doubtful about. Some say that Hilton, an expert in information technology with relatively unknown credentials in India, may not have been the right choice. "It would have been better if they had chosen someone with far greater networking skills to help shape policies," says an oil and gas expert with one of the big four consulting firms. "India's oil and gas sector is still at a nascent stage with policies still being framed on just about everything-shale gas exploration, production-sharing contracts between governments and oil companies, etc.," he adds. Hilton believes there will be good demand for LNG, because it is still cheaper than any other liquid feedstock, and there's a growing demand-supply gap. "We will bring the most competitive price [of LNG] to India because we can source it from anywhere in the world," she says. SHELLIN GAS IS only one of the several jobs before Hilton. But for her to get things moving, she'll have to deal with one of the biggest problems for any company, especially for a non-state-owned, private one: the industry is highly regulated. I ask Hilton what she thinks about the popular perception that networking is essential in her industry. "Networking for the sake of networking is unnecessary," she says categorically, but adds that "you need to have a good relationship with the government, with citizens, neighbours, and companies to get business done, and I think that is necessary". It's that relationship she is building now. Within months of taking over, Hilton had to face the first unpleasant surprise, courtesy the government. On February 13, 2013, without any warning, Shell India received a $1 billion tax notice, for miscalculating the amount it owed to the government exchequer on a transaction and proposing an adjustment of $2.7 billion. "It was quite a shocker and took the entire organisation by surprise," says Hilton, who was barely three months into her job. At the time, Hilton had issued a statement that said the notice to Shell was, in effect, a tax on foreign direct investment. She still believes the court will rule in Shell's favour, and adds: "It is wrong to believe that anybody can manage the government. Yasmine Hilton

This move will deliver benefits to Shell and India for decades to come," said Yasmine Hilton, chairman of Shell Companies in India.
