Tropical Storm Don - Update #2

Shell GoM Deep Water Operations

(This information is up-to-date as of 9:00 a.m. Central, July 28, 2011.  Further updates will be provided as needed.)

Shell will continue evacuations from its extreme southwest GoM operations today, completing evacuation of the Perdido Spar,  by bringing in 116 personnel.  The total number of evacuated personnel at the end of the day today from our impacted assets is expected to be 195. 

Given the evacuation of personnel and forecast track, we have executed a full shut in of production from our Perdido Spar. 

We will continue to monitor this system closely and respond to further developments.  The information on this site will be updated as necessary.
