Shell coordinated an emergency helicopter medevac to bring them for treatment at University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.

"At approximately 1:20a.m. on Wednesday, November 8, there was an operational incident at the Shell Enchilada platform at Garden Banks 128 in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico". Shell said that the two men have been treated and released.

Shell said in a statement that its platform was safely shut down.

"We will conduct an investigation to determine the cause", Shell said in its statement. Production at Enchilada, Auger and Salsa platforms and nearby fields have been shut-in. There is a report of a light sheen north of the platform. "For safety reasons, we have chosen to allow the gas discharge (3-6ft flame) to burn while the pipeline is being safely depressurized".

Two crew members were reported injured in the fire.

The U.S. Coast Guard says two people were injured and dozens have evacuated the Shell Enchilada platform off of Louisiana after a fire early this morning.

Coast Guard officials reported that 46 workers aboard the platform were evacuated to a lifeboat and then transferred to Shell's nearby Salsa platform by the offshore supply vessel C-Liberty.

According to BSEE records, the agency also is investigating an incident that occurred on the same platform at 4 p.m. on September 19.
