BHP Billiton to Resume Production on GoM Platforms

Posted by October 9, 2017

Australian oil producer BHP Billiton (BHPLF) started mobilizing staff to its Neptune and Shenzi platforms at the Gulf of Mexico after Hurricane Nate, expecting to make progress on resuming output over the next 24 hours, the firm said on Monday.

BHP Billiton on Friday completed the evacuation of the oil platforms ahead of Nate, which made landfall on Saturday at the mouth of the Mississippi river.
