Anglo-Dutch energy company Shell said it had completed its $2 billion acquisition of renewable natural gas company Nature Energy, reported Sputnik.
"Shell Petroleum NV, a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell plc (Shell), has completed the acquisition of 100 per cent of the shares of Nature Energy Biogas A/S (Nature Energy)," Shell said in a news release.
