Shell said its crew-change heliport in Houma, Louisiana, sustained "significant damage" as a result of Hurricane Ida and that it would halt crew changes to and from its sites until a temporary heliport is established.

The company said it is still assessing assets that were in the path of the storm. It performed a flyover earlier this week but plans more detailed assessments of offshore facilities by helicopter. 

Its Mars, Olympus, and Ursa assets were intact and on location, the company added.
