(AP) A spokeswoman for the united command overseeing the salvage of Royal Dutch Shell PLC drill barge that ran aground on a remote Alaska island says no new information will be released until a vessel assessment is completed.

Shell's drill vessel Kulluk (KUL'-uk) ran aground New Year's Eve. It was pulled off the rocky bottom Jan. 6 and towed to a protected bay within Kodiak Island.

The operation is under the direction of a unified command structure made up of the Shell, the Coast Guard, and state and local authorities.

The unified command says the vessel remains upright and has been examined by divers. But spokeswoman Deb Sawyer says by email that multiple entities are involved in assessing data and no details will be forthcoming until an assessment report is completed.
