Storm Center Update #2 - Tropical Depression 9
Aug 29, 2016
Deepwater Gulf of Mexico
We continue to monitor Tropical Depression 9.
In preparation for potentially severe weather, Shell safely shut in production at the Coulomb field following the shut in of associated downstream oil and gas gathering systems and receipt points. The Coulomb field is 100% owned by Shell and produces back to the Na Kika platform, which is operated by BP (50%) and co-owned by Shell (50%).
Production is currently unaffected at all other Shell-operated assets.
Our priorities are the safety of personnel, protecting the environment and minimizing operational impact.
Please contact the BP press office for any questions around the operational status of Na Kika.
Please visit the Destin Pipeline Company website for more information and updates around the operational status of oil and gas gathering systems and receipt points: https://bp.trellisenergy.com/ptms/home.do
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.
