As a precautionary measure, Shell is minimizing the number of staff working offshore on our platforms in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico. We are also securing our facilities in preparation for potentially severe weather. This includes safely shutting in production at our Ram Powell hub located in the Viosca Knoll area of the Gulf of Mexico.
There are currently no impacts to our production or drilling operations in the Mars Corridor or other areas of the Eastern Gulf of Mexico.
As always, our top priority is the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.
