(ISSUED at 6:30 PM CST) Shell is monitoring Tropical Storm Beta for potential impacts to our assets and operations in the Gulf of Mexico. As a precautionary measure, Shell has evacuated all personnel from Perdido in the western Gulf of Mexico and has shut in production. All rigs in the area are monitoring the weather and have secured operations.
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.
