Tropical Storm Barry:shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations Update #6
Jul 15, 2019
Shell continues to monitor and respond to the remnants of Tropical Storm Barry in the Gulf of Mexico and we are taking actions to keep our people and assets safe.
Redeployment/crew change flights to some our assets have begun now that weather conditions in the Gulf and onshore have improved.
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.
Despite the shutdowns and curtailments, approximately 65% of the average daily production of oil and gas flowing across our Shell-operated assets in the Gulf of Mexico is continuing.
As always, our top priority is the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.
