Storm Center Update #1 - Tropical Disturbance 26
Aug 26, 2016
Deepwater Gulf of Mexico
Shell continues to monitor Tropical Disturbance 26.
As a precautionary measure, we are taking the necessary steps to prepare and secure our assets in the Gulf of Mexico. This includes limiting the amount of personnel offshore to those directly involved in the core activities essential to maintaining safe operations. Drilling operations have been suspended and production is currently unaffected.
Our priorities are the safety of personnel, protecting the environment and minimizing operational impact.
