About 33% of US Gulf Oil Output Offline after Nate

Posted by October 11, 2017

About 32.7 percent of U.S. Gulf of Mexico oil production is offline in the aftermath of Hurricane Nate, the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) said on Wednesday.
 
That equals about 571,854 barrels per day in production that is offline, according to BSEE. Oil companies evacuated staff from Gulf platforms and curtailed output ahead of the storm, which hit the region last weekend.
 
About 21 percent of Gulf natural gas production remains offline, BSEE said.
