Chevron returns staff to GoM platforms
Chevron Corp has sent back staff to its US Gulf of Mexico platforms that were previously shuttered ahead of Hurricane Nate, Reuters reports. The company did not speculate as to when operations would return to normal. Chevron's pipeline subsidiary, Chevron Pipe Line Co is also in the process of resuming all operations back to normal, after reopening its Whitecap pipeline and Fourchon and Empire terminals to receive and ship crude.
The shutdowns in anticipation of the storm took more than 90% away from the total oil production in the Gulf of Mexico of nearly 1.8M b/d.
