Appointment of Vice President, Operations

Effective as of July 22, 2020, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Shell Midstream Partners GP LLC (the “General Partner”), the general partner of Shell Midstream Partners, L.P. (the “Partnership”), appointed Jesse C. H. Stanley, 36, as Vice President, Operations of the General Partner. Ms. Stanley is taking over the role from Mr. Alton G. Smith, who retired from the role in July, as previously announced by the Partnership.

Ms. Stanley formerly served as the General Manager for Value Chain Integration in upstream shales for Royal Dutch Shell plc (“Shell”), a position that she held for one year. Ms. Stanley started her career with Shell in Europe, working in lubricants operations based in Shell’s lubricants plants and refineries in the United Kingdom and Europe, a role in which she served for six years, streamlining processes for logistics and leading a series of initiatives to improve cost competitiveness. Later, Ms. Stanley was responsible for the global marketing of Shell’s automotive lubricants and led several business development efforts in that role. Before coming to the shales business in the United States, Ms. Stanley was the business advisor and group strategy manager for Shell’s EVP Strategy & Portfolio in The Hague, Netherlands. The Partnership believes that Ms. Stanley’s extensive experience in the energy industry, particularly her experience in the lubricants sector, makes her well qualified to serve as an executive officer.

Ms. Stanley was not appointed pursuant to any arrangement or understanding with any other person, and there are no transactions with Ms. Stanley that would be reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
