Shell Prepares for Severe Weather from Tropical Disturbance in Gulf of Mexico.
As a precautionary measure, we have taken steps to secure our assets in the Gulf of Mexico. Personnel will remain offshore and we have suspended all offshore flights from heliports located in Central Louisiana. Some well operations have been suspended and production is currently unaffected.
Shell’s priorities are the safety of personnel and minimizing impacts to the environment and operations. All of our floating deep-water production hubs are designed to safely withstand hurricane force conditions.
