Shell has announced that following repairs to portions of the West Delta 143 (WD-143) offshore facility, operated by Shell Pipeline, in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida production has restarted at the Olympus platform in the Mars Corridor in the Gulf of Mexico.

The remaining assets in that corridor, Mars and Ursa, remain shut in. Shell's other Gulf of Mexico assets, Appomattox, Enchilada/Salsa, Auger, Perdido and Stones are all producing.

Shell warned that damage to its offshore transfer facilities from Ida will cut production into early next year.
