Royal Dutch Shell said Tuesday that production at four oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico has been shut in the wake of a Nov. 8 fire at its Enchilada platform.
“Production is shut in at the Shell-operated Enchilada and Salsa platforms, as well as the associated Hess-operated Conger field,” in which Shell has a 37.5 percent share, it said in a statement, according to Reuters.
In addition, Shell safely shut in all production operations at its Auger platform due to downstream constraints caused by this incident.”
Production from Auger flows back to Enchilada for transport to shore.
There was still no timeline for the resumption of normal operations, Shell said.
“Shell is in the process of developing a plan to repair damage caused by an operational incident on its
Enchilada platform and safely re-deploying personnel.”
