(ISSUED at 10:00 AM CST) Shell continues to actively monitor Tropical Storm Ida in the Gulf of Mexico. As a precautionary measure, Shell is in the process of shutting in production and evacuating all personnel from the Ursa, Mars, Olympus, and Appomattox assets. In addition, production has been shut in at Stones, Auger and Enchilada/Salsa. Non-essential personnel continue to be moved from all eight of our assets. Some drilling operations have been safely paused.

We will continue to monitor weather reports and respond accordingly. As always, the safety of our people, the environment and our assets is Shell’s top priority.

Any personnel moved from or to our assets will continue to adhere to our existing COVID-19 risk mitigation measures. All personnel will be required to pass our COVID-19 screening process prior to returning to work offshore.
