  • TROPICAL STORM BARRY:SHELL DEEPWATER GULF OF MEXICO OPERATIONS UPDATE #8

    Shell continues to ramp up to pre-storm production levels of oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico after the disruption caused by Tropical Storm Barry.

    Our Ursa and Olympus assets have resumed production, while the Mars, Enchilada, Salsa and Stone assets are in varying stages of returning to normal operations and production levels.

    Despite the effects and aftermath of the storm, approximately 80% of the average daily production of oil and gas flowing across our Shell-operated assets in the Gulf of Mexico continues.

    Full production from the assets will resume when it is safe to do so.

    As always, our top priority is the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.

  • TROPICAL STORM BARRY:SHELL DEEPWATER GULF OF MEXICO OPERATIONS UPDATE #7

    We are continuing work to achieve pre-storm production levelsof oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico after the disruption caused by Tropical Storm Barry.

    The non-essential personnel who were evacuated out of an abundance of caution, are now returning to their platforms as flights and normal crew-change activities are resuming.

    The Auger, Salsa and Enchilada assets in the Gulf of Mexico remain shut in and production in the Mars Corridor remains curtailed as a result of this storm. The pipelines and midstream partners that accept our products are in varying stages of readiness, ranging from damage assessments, repair work, or are on line. Full production from the assets will resume when it is safe to do so and the mid and downstream facilities can safely accept the oil and gas.

    As always, our top priority is the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.

  • TROPICAL STORM BARRY: SHELL DEEPWATER GULF OF MEXICO OPERATIONS UPDATE #5

    Shell continues to monitor and respond to Tropical Storm Barry in the Gulf of Mexico and we are taking actions to keep our people and assets safe.

    Our offshore crews and assets have weathered the storm well; however, we have shut in the Auger, Salsa and the Enchilada assets in the Gulf of Mexico and curtailed production in the Mars Corridor as a result of the effects of this storm. Downstream third-party facilities have experienced weather-related issues, including power loss, that are limiting, restricting or halting some or all of their operating capabilities. We continue to monitor and work with those third-party providers in order to resume normal production as soon as is safely possible.

    As always, our top priority is the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.
