Shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations
(ISSUED at 10:00 AM CST) We continue to actively monitor Tropical Storm Laura and Tropical Storm Marco. As a precautionary measure, Shell is evacuating personnel and safely shutting in production at the majority of our assets in the Gulf of Mexico. Drilling operations have been safely paused as well.
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.
