Shell Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Operations
(ISSUED at 7 PM CST) Shell continues to actively monitor the impact of Hurricane Ida to our assets in the Gulf of Mexico. Shell conducted a flyover for an initial assessment of assets that were in the path of the storm and was able to confirm that Mars, Olympus and Ursa are all intact and on location. We are still assessing the full results of the flyover and are also working to conduct assessments of land-based infrastructure critical to the safe resumption of production.
Our floating production storage and offloading vessel, the Turritella, has resumed production. Our Perdido asset in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico remained on line throughout Hurricane Ida. All other assets remain shut in and fully evacuated at this time.
We will continue to monitor weather reports and conditions on the ground across southeast Louisiana and respond accordingly. As always, Shell’s top priority is the safety of our people, the environment and our assets.
