Tropical Depression Laura - Shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Update #15
August 28, 2020 10:00 AM CST
Asset inspections expected to start today
(ISSUED at 10:00 AM CST) Weather permitting, we expect to begin inspections today of potentially affected assets, Auger, Enchilada and Salsa. These inspections will enable us to determine when we can safely re-deploy personnel and resume operations to those platforms. Meanwhile, we are beginning to re-deploy personnel to all other assets that have not been impacted, including those in the Norphlet and Mars Corridors. Perdido was the only one of our nine operated assets that was not shut it and remains in production. Our drilling operations are in the process of re-starting.
As always, the safety of our people, the environment and our assets are 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.
