Shell to Re-Deploy Personnel in the Gulf of Mexico

Given Dean's current status, Shell has made plans for the redeployment of personnel today and throughout the rest of the week.

Shell-operated production rates that remain shut in as a result of Hurricane Dean are approximately 30,000 barrels of oil per day and 70 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. We are beginning to bring production back on line.

We continue to monitor Dean closely, as well as other activity in the tropics.
