Hurricane Harvey – Update Four
Aug 25, 2017
By Thursday, August 24th, approximately 160 workers were returned to shore after the Perdido production spar was safely shut in. The Enchilada and Salsa platforms were also shut in Thursday, and a portion of the crew were brought in to shore today. A small crew will stay on site at Enchilada Salsa toensure the safe operation of the facility’s pipeline infrastructure, which is currently being used to transport oil and gas from Shell’s Auger production hub to shore.
“We regularly train our employees to ensure they are ready to take immediate action when the time comes – no matter the situation,” said Phil Smith, Shell’s Manager for Emergency Management in the Americas. “Everyone working in Shell’s Gulf of Mexico business goes to work each day with one clear goal in mind - to keep our people, assets and the environment safe in any weather condition.”
