HOUSTON (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc <RDSa.L> said non-essential workers are being evacuated from all nine of its assets in the U.S.-regulated northern Gulf of Mexico because of the threat from Hurricane Delta, the company said on Tuesday.

"Shell is preparing to shut down production at several assets and has begun evacuating non-essential personnel from all nine of its assets in the Gulf of Mexico," the company said in an emailed statement.
