Tropical Storm Threats – Update #1
August 21, 2020 12:30 PM CST
Shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations
(ISSUED at 12:30 PM CST) We are actively monitoring tropical threats approaching the Gulf of Mexico. As a precautionary measure, we have begun reducing non-essential personnel on board some of our offshore assets as work activities and conditions allow. There are currently no impacts to production, and work is underway to secure drilling operations.
We are continuing to monitor weather reports and will 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.
