Oil operators restoring production in Gulf after Don

on

NEW ORLEANS — The federal agency that oversees offshore oil and gas drilling says operators are restoring production in the Gulf of Mexico after the passage of Tropical Storm Don.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Enforcement said data from offshore operator reports submitted as of 11:30 a.m. Saturday showed that, as the storm approached, workers were evacuated from 62 of the 617 manned production platforms in the Gulf; and from two of the 62 drilling rigs.

The National Hurricane Center downgraded Don to a depression Friday night as the weak disturbance came ashore over ranch lands near Baffin Bay in Texas.

The bureau estimated that approximately 10.9 percent of the current oil production in the Gulf of Mexico was shut-in, and about 6.6 percent of natural gas production.
