Shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations
(ISSUED at 11 PM CST) Shell continues to actively monitor the impact of Hurricane Ida. Following a flyover this afternoon in the Gulf of Mexico for a general assessment, the United States Coast Guard reported visual confirmation that the Shell-operated Mars, Olympus, and Ursa platforms remain on location. Shell has scheduled our own flyover tomorrow afternoon to assess these and other assets, that were in the path of the storm.
We will continue to monitor weather reports and respond accordingly. Shell’s top priority is the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.
