Subtropical Storm Alberto – Update Two
May 26, 2018
We are monitoring subtropical storm Alberto and are taking actions to keep our people and assets safe.
As a precautionary measure, Shell evacuated all offshore personnel from its Ram Powell hub in the Viosca Knoll area and our Appomattox hub in the Norphlet. We have also safely suspended production operations at Ram Powell. There are currently no other 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.
Note – Appomattox is Shell’s newest deepwater production hub in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and is expected to begin production by the end of the decade. The platform recently arrived in the Norphlet, which is located in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico. Appomattox is designed to safely withstand hurricane force conditions.
