CALGARY, May 19 /CNW/ - Shell advises that it is taking action to limit
non-essential personnel at its Shell Albian Sands site. Albian includes
both the Muskeg River Mine and Jackpine Mine locations, 75km north of
Fort McMurray, Alberta.
Overnight, wind conditions which had previously moved smoke north from
the site became calm and shifted, bringing heavier smoke into the area.
This action is a precautionary measure to ensure people who may be
sensitive to these conditions and those not essential to ongoing
operations are returned home safely.
Production operations are not affected at this time.
Shell is working closely with others in the region to monitor the fire
