(ISSUED at 9:00 AM CST) Shell is monitoring Hurricane Delta for potential impacts to its assets and operations in the Gulf of Mexico. As a precautionary measure, Shell has shut in production at all nine of its assets and has evacuated all personnel. All drilling operations have been safely paused.
Any personnel moved from, or to, our assets will continue to adhere to our existing strict COVID-19 risk mitigation measures, and all personnel will be required to pass our COVID-19 screening process prior to returning to work offshore. As always, the safety of our people, the environment and our assets are Shell’s top priority.
