The Shell Hurricane Incident Command Team continues monitoring Tropical Storm Karen.
We continue to secure our drilling operations in the Eastern Gulf Of Mexico, while also evacuating some non-essential personnel. There have been very limited production impacts at this time. Our priorities are to continue ensuring the safety of personnel, taking necessary precautions, minimizing impacts to the environment, and minimizing production and operational impact.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and respond to further developments. The information on this site will be updated as necessary.
