(Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSa.L) said it was taking steps to secure its assets in the western Gulf of Mexico in preparation for severe weather.

There was no current impact to production, the company said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that it was continuing to monitor developments related to the remnants of former Tropical Storm Harvey.

Harvey has regenerated into a tropical depression and could strengthen further into a hurricane on Friday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Wednesday.
