Tropical Storm Debby Update #2

Shell GoM Deep Water Operations

(This information is up-to-date as of 9:00 a.m. Central, June 25, 2012. Further updates will be provided as needed.)

Given the current forecast for Tropical Storm Debby, Shell is in the initial stages of redeploying staff to its operations across the Gulf.

Because only two non-producing platforms were fully evacuated, the re-deployment efforts will serve to get asset locations back up to full staff complement.   Re-start and ramp-up of the minimal subsea production shut-in has also begun today.  By end of day Tuesday, we will be back to normal operations across the Gulf.

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