Given current weather forecasts, Shell is redeploying personnel.

Shell-operated production remains shut in at facilities in some of our Central, Western, and  South Texas Gulf of Mexico operations.  Once power and communications are restored, marine logistics support is established and the locations are deemed safe, then personnel will return to platforms and/or drilling rigs.  They will then begin to restart production and recommence drilling activities.  Production ramp up at each impacted facility will vary, but complete GOM production ramp up to pre-storm levels may take three to five days.  

In the Gulf of Mexico, Shell has deferred 32,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, Total Shell Net (our net interest in both Shell operated and non-operated Gulf of Mexico production), due to Hurricane Alex.  Given the evacuation of personnel and continued storm forecast, all onshore natural gas production and drilling had also been suspended at our South Texas operations.

The information on this site will be updated as necessary.                                     
NOTES AND DISCLAIMERS: 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.
