June 8, 2020 CST 08:00am
Shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations
(ISSUED at 08:00 CST) We are actively monitoring improving offshore conditions in the wake of Tropical Storm Cristobal in the Gulf of Mexico. As conditions continue to improve today and tomorrow, we will begin redeploying some non-essential personnel on board some of our offshore assets as we resume work activities. There were no impacts to our production as a result of TS Cristobal, and we expect to resume our drilling operations as conditions continue to improve today and tomorrow.
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.
