Given the forecast for Tropical Storm Alex, Shell has begun evacuating personnel not essential to producing and drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico.  Evacuations from across our operations will occur today, resulting in the safe evacuation of approximately 300 people.   We are expecting minimal impacts to our drilling operations and production at this time.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and respond to further developments. 

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.
