Tropical Depression 16 - Update One
Oct 04, 2017
Shell is monitoring Tropical Depression 16. As a precautionary measure, we are minimizing the number of people working offshore at our assets in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico and are taking steps to safely secure our facilities in preparation for potentially severe weather. There are currently no impacts to our production or drilling operations.
Shell's top priority is always the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.
"Shell works closely a leading weather forecasting organization to model where a storm system is most likely heading and how strong it will be so we can take necessary and effective steps to keep our people, the environment and our assets safe," said Phil Smith, Shell's Manager for Emergency Management in the Americas.
