June 6, 2020 CST 18:30
Shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations
(ISSUED at 18:30 CST)We continue actively monitoring Tropical Storm Cristobal in the Gulf of Mexico. As a precautionary measure, we have reduced some non-essential personnel on board some of our offshore assets as work activities and conditions allow. There are currently no impacts to our production, and we expect minimal impacts to our drilling operations.
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.
