Tropical Storm Barry:shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations Update #7
Jul 16, 2019
We are continuing work to achieve pre-storm production levels of oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico after the disruption caused by Tropical Storm Barry.
The non-essential personnel who were evacuated out of an abundance of caution, are now returning to their platforms as flights and normal crew-change activities are resuming.
The Auger, Salsa and Enchilada assets in the Gulf of Mexico remain shut in and production in the Mars Corridor remains curtailed as a result of this storm. The pipelines and midstream partners that accept our products are in varying stages of readiness, ranging from damage assessments, repair work, or are on line. Full production from the assets will resume when it is safe to do so and the mid and downstream facilities can safely accept the oil and gas.
As always, our top priority is the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.
