No timeline for restart of operations in Shell’s Mexico platform

Shell said that there is no timeline for restarting normal operations on a platform which was shut down in the US Gulf of Mexico due to a fire.

“Though the structure is visibly sound, crews will continue to determine the integrity of the platform and formulate a plan for damage repair,” the oil major told Reuters.

Shell added there was no oil in the water as a result of the incident.

The fire on the Enchilada facility involved a 30-inch gas export pipeline.

All 46 personnel working at the Enchilada facility were safely evacuated. Two Shell employees were injured. Both have been treated and released from the hospital.
