Tropical Disturbance #11 Update #1

Shell GoM Deep Water Operations

(This information is up-to-date as of 01:00 p.m. Central, June 22, 2012. Further updates will be provided as needed.)

Given the continued uncertain forecast for Tropical Disturbance #11 in the extreme southern GoM, Shell is preparing for rough conditions across all Operations and some weather-sensitive activities such as construction and painting may be delayed or shut-down in anticipation of the expected deteriorating  weather conditions.

Accordingly, minimal staff associated with those activities may be evacuated  from some central and western Deepwater GoM asset locations over the next few days.  These personnel are not essential to core producing and drilling operations and will not be able to perform their normal work functions during the passing storm conditions. Production is not expected to be affected at this time.

We will continue to monitor weather reports and respond accordingly. The information on this site will be updated as necessary.

NOTES AND DISCLAIMERS: Customers of Shell and its affiliates may have other specific inquiries related to storm or hurricane impacts and should contact their account manager with those questions. Nothing herein shall be construed as a declaration of force majeure. All declarations of force majeure will be made and related notices given in accordance with the provisions of the affected contracts. Shell-specific production shut-in numbers are not issued externally. You can contact the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Enforcement (BOEMRE) for overall Gulf of Mexico shut-in status, as of the previous day.
