Hurricane Ida- Update #16
September 10, 2021 22:00 CST
(Issued at 10:00 PM CST): Shell continues to actively monitor the impact of Hurricane Ida to our assets in Louisiana and in the communities where we operate.
Our Enchilada/Salsa and Auger assets are now back online. Our Perdido asset in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico was never disrupted by the hurricane and our floating production, storage and offloading vessel, the Turritella (also known as Stones) is online as well. Our Appomattox, Mars, Ursa, and Olympus assets remain shut in.
Damage assessments continue at our West Delta-143 (WD-143) offshore facility, operated by Shell Pipeline. We are working to understand the full extent of the damage and the degree to which production in the Gulf of Mexico will be impacted.
Our recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Ida include caring for our people and the communities where they live and work. Volunteers from our Geismar manufacturing facility answered an urgent call from the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, packing more than 2200 disaster emergency food kits for distribution in areas impacted by the storm.
As always, Shell’s top priority is the safety of our people, the environment, and our assets.
