Tropical Storm Nate – Update Two
Oct 05, 2017
Shell is monitoring Tropical Storm Nate. 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 secure our facilities in preparation for potentially severe weather. This includes safely shutting in production from some of our subsea fields and suspending some drilling activity.
Our top priority is always the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.
“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.”
