AMSTERDAM Feb 22 (Reuters) - Oil major Royal Dutch Shell said on Tuesday that all its expat employees and their dependants in Libya, involved primarily in the company's exploration activities in the country, had been relocated.

"Given the continuing uncertainty in Libya, Shell's expatriate staff have now been temporarily relocated. Shell offices remain closed, and business continuity plans are in place," a Shell spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman did not say how the evacuations took place. (Reporting by Greg Roumeliotis; Editing by Will Waterman)
