Tropical Storm Isaac Update - #12

Shell GoM Deep Water Operations‬‪‬‪

(This information is up-to-date as of 11:00 a.m. Central, August 30, 2012. Further updates will be provided as needed.)‬‪‬‪‬‪

Isaac has weakened to a tropical storm and is now located about 25 miles southwest of Monroe, Louisiana. Maximum sustained winds are estimated at 30 mph over land. There may still be an isolated patch of tropical storm force winds over northern Vermillion Bay, but Isaac appears to be weakening to a tropical depression.

Shell’s central and eastern Gulf operations remain fully evacuated with the associated production shut-in. Flight inspections over all of our storm affected assets began this morning. Plans for staff redeployment are underway to potentially begin on Friday as weather conditions permit.

We will continue to monitor weather reports and respond accordingly. ‬‪

The information on this site will be updated as necessary. ‬‪‬‪‬‪
