(ISSUED at 12:00 PM CST) Shell manufacturing facilities along the Louisiana and Alabama coasts are closely monitoring Tropical Storm Zeta and are prepared to take action as appropriate based on our established hurricane readiness and response plans. These manufacturing facilities are located in Convent, Geismar and Norco, Louisiana and Mobile, Alabama.

We are following a multi-phase plan that identifies people and equipment that need attention. The plan is premised on the projected path and severity of the storm and can be adjusted to fit changing weather conditions.

Before each hurricane season, Shell sites on the Gulf Coast review and test this plan based on various hurricane scenarios. Our facilities regularly confer with local emergency operations centers to share information on preparedness and response tasks, and we work closely with city officials whenever severe weather could affect local residents.

Protection of our people and assets, the community and environment are our top priorities. If conditions lead to an evacuation, we will be prepared to carry it out in a safe and orderly manner. We will use the media and other means of communication to notify employees not to report to work if conditions could be unsafe.
