Hurricane Zeta – Update #3

Shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations
(ISSUED at 09:00 AM CST) Shell continues to actively monitor Hurricane Zeta in the Gulf of Mexico. As a precautionary measure at our Stones asset, we have begun evacuating non-essential personnel and shut in production. We have safely paused some of our drilling operations and currently have no other impacts on our production across the Gulf of Mexico.
We will continue to monitor weather reports and respond accordingly. As always, the safety of our people, the environment and our assets is Shell’s top priority.
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.
