Hess Shutters GoM Assets After Enchilada Fire

Posted by November 13, 2017

U.S. oil and gas producer Hess Corp said on Monday it had halted production at its Baldpate, Conger and Penn State fields due to a fire at Royal Dutch Shell (RYDAF)'s Enchilada platform in the Gulf of Mexico.
 
Last week, Shell shut its Enchilada platform after a fire caused injuries to two people.
 
Production is also shut in at the Shell-operated Llano field, where Hess has a 50 percent stake, Hess said.
 

The fields produce about 30,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
