    Storm Alberto forces U.S. oil workers evacuation

    Subtropical Storm Alberto, the first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic (Shanghai: 600558.SS - news) hurricane season, is forcing the evacuation of oil workers out of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico as it moves toward a Monday landfall between New Orleans and Florida's panhandle. Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: 0LN9.L - news) has begun evacuating some oil platform workers in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and shut production at one energy hub as a precautionary measure, the company said on Friday afternoon. Production and drilling operations elsewhere in the Eastern Gulf had not been affected, it added.
