LOOP Resumes Normal Operations After Storm

October 12, 2018

The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP), the largest privately-owned crude terminal in the United States, said it resumed normal operations at its Marine Terminal on Thursday after operations were suspended ahead of Hurricane Michael.

Major oil producers and drillers began returning workers and restoring output at U.S. Gulf of Mexico facilities shut as Hurricane Michael blew through.

Michael, the fiercest storm to hit Florida in more than 80 years, weakened into a tropical storm over central Georgia after it slammed into the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday as a Category 4 hurricane.
