Shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations
(ISSUED at 8:00 PM CST) We continue to actively monitor Tropical Storm Laura and Hurricane Marco in the Gulf of Mexico. We are nearing completion of the evacuation of all non-essential personnel. We have safely shut in production at all but one of our assets in the Gulf of Mexico. All well operations have now been safely secured.
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.
