According to a statement by Shell the company is redeploying personnel to facilities that are not expected to be impacted by the storm. Shell expects production at these facilities to begin ramping up over the next few days.

Transocean has said they are taking steps to send 320 evacuated personnel back to work over the next two days, should the storm move ashore as expected. Transocean had approximately 1,200 personnel onboard its nine rigs in the U.S. GoM before the evacuations and now has approximately 880 personnel on board.
