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 continuing to evacuate our personnel and safely shut in production at all but one of our assets in the Gulf of Mexico. We are in the process of finalizing the safe pause on our drilling operations.
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.
