Making money is a major motive behind Motiva Enterprises, which operates the eastern and southeastern US downstream businesses of Shell Oil and Saudi Aramco . Motiva operates three refineries with a capacity of more than 1.1 million barrels of crude oil a day, and it sells fuel at about 8,200 Shell-branded gas stations. It also has stakes in 34 refined product storage terminals (19.8 billion barrels of storage capacity) in the East and Gulf Coast regions. Motiva and sister company Shell Oil Products US , which operates in the West and Midwest, together make up the #1 US gasoline retailer. Motiva is a 50-50 joint venture of Shell and Saudi Aramco . In 2017 these companies agreed to dissolve the joint venture.
