Shell Uses Twitter to Update on Hurricane Ida

Shell has been using the social networking site Twitter in order to post updates on the progress of Hurricane Ida.

Shell advised that it had safely evacuated some 160 people over the weekend who were not essential to producing and drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico  and that it was not planning any additional significant personnel movements until Ida has moved through the northern Gulf.

Fantastic use of this on-line tool and an excellent means of communicating and updating to staff and other stakeholders. Communication to impacted parties is always difficult during incidents or situations such as this. Use of a tool such as Twitter would be an excellent way for production sites to communicate to local communities, particularly during major incidents.
