On September 20, 2021, Shell Pipeline Company, L.P., the operator of the Mars,
Proteus and Endymion pipelines, in which BPMP owns interests, issued the
following update relevant to BPMP:
"Shell Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE:SHLX) ("Shell Midstream Partners" or the
"Partnership") and Shell Pipeline Company LP ("SPLC") have substantially
completed Hurricane Ida impact assessments on most of their owned or operated
assets in the Gulf of Mexico and onshore Louisiana. The Partnership can report
the following at this time:
•The Partnership's operated pipelines, including ... Proteus, Endymion, ... have
been returned to normal operating service after successfully completing all
needed safety and stand-up tests.
•Mars: Shell Offshore Inc. and SPLC have conducted a comprehensive damage
assessment on the West Delta-143 ("WD-143") offshore facilities.
•Due to the damage discovered, it is estimated that some parts of the WD-143
facilities will be offline for repairs into Q4 2021 and other parts until the
end of Q4 2021. This damage will impact the Partnership's ability to provide
service to shippers until such repairs are completed.
•Given the timeline for repairs to WD-143, the Partnership expects throughput to
resume from the Olympus platform at some point in Q4 2021 and from the Mars and
Ursa facilities at some point in Q1 2022.
Shell Midstream Partners carries several insurance policies in kinds and amounts
customary to the industry, which may offset some costs of any asset damage and
business losses. The Partnership's business interruption insurance related to
lost revenue is expected to begin after sixty days of downtime. The Partnership
intends to file all appropriate claims.
The Partnership will continue to provide updates on the company website,
www.shellmidstreampartners.com, as information becomes available.
Shell Midstream Partners' primary focus continues to be the safety of its
affiliates' employees and the protection of the environment."
BPMP owns a 28.5% interest in Mars and a 65.0% interest in the Mardi Gras
Transportation System Company, LLC, which holds a 65% interest in each of
Proteus and Endymion. BPMP also owns 22.7% of the Ursa pipeline, which feeds
into the Mars pipeline. The Partnership will make additional public disclosures
when appropriate to do so.
